Deep black color. Mediocre head. Taste is very complex. Bitter. Smokey wood flavor. Hints of coffee, unsweetened chocolate, cocoa, and tobacco. Overall very impressive stout. My favorite RIS.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Finally got my hands on this one.
I wasn't let down.
Pours a deep, cocoa black in the glass with light brown head.
Smells are amazing- chocolate, coffee, toffee, almost fruity.
Tastes almost crunchy, thick, delicious. The caramely malts cling to your tongue and then race down my throat.
This ain't your daddy's stout, that's for sure.
