A lighter version of the massive American versions of this beer for sure (the very phrase RIS conjours up thoughts of mind blowing excess), but of course the pay-off is that you get subtleties and grace that a massive smack you in the face American version lacks. Don’t get me wrong, I love many of the American versions too, but many of them lack the craft of a beer like this.
Jet black pour and a tan head that produces nice lacing. Smooth as silk on the way down, with mild and creamy chocolate and milk tones too. Yeast notes in the nose.
Insanely drinkable because of the lack of massive alcohol, bitterness and other harsh elements often found in the style, this was an excellent beer in my opinion.
