Double it out. Pours a mostly hazy darker amber color with a brown hue throughout. A very foamy off white head with ok retention and great lacing while it was there.

The nose is mostly malt with a limited phenolic/ester profile. To start the malt is a bit non-descript with some minor melanodian notes but there is a noticeable sugary note. Some light molasses notes as well. There is a distinct Allagash yeast note. Some minor raisin note and some minor peppery aromas.

The taste is similar. The malt comes out a bit more with a sweet caramel flavor. The sugar notes are prevalent and give a super dry finish. There is a light raisin and white grape flavor as well. A light yeast note that is more noticeable than the nose as well. Some minor chlorine notes as well.

The body is dry even for style. Would like more body and some remaining sweetness. Overall limited drinkability but for me I want more depth and body.

Bottled in 2006, 11.04% abv

A - Head comes out of nowhere. Doesn't look like anything is producing from the pour and all the sudden I have two inches in my glass. Light cocoa colored and made of varying sized bubbles. Good retention and lacing. Very dark brown body. I can only see light through it at the bottom of the tulip.

S - Chocolate, dark roasted malt. Bitter coffee. Toffee and molasses. Slightly spicy and floral hops. A bit of lactose.

T - So much richer than the smell. Coffee bitterness combines with a nice flavor of baker's chocolate or cocoa. Molasses and toffee along with a bit of black licorice. Finishes with spicy, floral hops that stay on the tongue for a minute.

M - Full bodied with smooth carbonation.

D - This is a really nice and unobtrusive RIS. It's going to take me a while to get through of a bomber of this big ol beer, but I will enjoy the ride.

Served In: Pint Glass
