A 22oz bomber thanks to Redwood21. Poured into a tulip

A: Poured a pitch black, with a super thick consistency, even had some minor chunky splashes. Got a nice medium brown head that receded to a mocha ring that stayed for the entire brew, leaving nice sticky lacing. The beer leaves a nice yellow-black slick on the glass. The are visible particles in the brew.
All in all, a beautiful looking beer.

S: Smell of the beer was a little disappointing. I got some roasted malt, dark chocolate,caramel, slight notes of coffee and nuts. The suprising thing about this beer was that the hops note really comes out in this nose. Totally not expected.

T: This beer does not have the amazingly complex tastes that some RIS's have. It does have the deeply roasted malt, dark chocolate, cream, caramel and a touch of coffee. Yet again suprising is the very notable presence of hops in this brew. Don't know how I feel about that.

M: Chunky and thick, just as it should be. Coats the mouth and really allows you to taste everything this beer has to offer. A slight bitter aftertaste rolls down your tongue. Very nice.

D: This is a drinkable brew. I do not find this beer as complex and awe inspiring as other RIS's I have had. With that said, it does represent well what an RIS should be even if it doesn't have the complexity, and although nothing is too amazing about the taste and nose, you can't find anything wrong with what it offers. A fine example of the style.
