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.

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.
