AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL15/20
S – Toffee, Chocolate, Fudge and Espresso on the nose.
T – I swear I taste oak but I don’t think this was oak aged. 13% RIS really should have gone in a barrel! The is the kind of beer 21 year old college kids who are stone fanboys must lose their shit over. I don’t taste any of the booze. Sweetness is minimal for such a big beer. Lots of roast / toasty qualities and creamy coffee.
M – Thick and viscous, charred oak finish
O – This was pretty good but should be split 2 ways. The roast and lack of sweetness really wears on you.
