From a bottle.
Black as night with a light tan head, leaving behind some lovely lacing. Beautiful.
A nice coffee/chocolate smell. Not too overpowering, but definitely evident. Very nice.
Taste is fantastic. Like most people say, malt, chocolate, and coffee. A nice bit of warmth to go with the 9% ABV. Wouldn't guess a 9% ABV though.
A bit more carbonation than I would think in the mouth, but it's still really rich and thick in the mouth.
For me, I don't drink stouts too often. Usually like to have a nice meaty meal, which is something I don't have too often. But when I wanna have a stout, especially a RIS, this is an absolute go-to beer. Fantastic. Could drink this often.
