Just an amazing beer- especially considering the price ($8.99 where I am) and year-round availability. Black as Rasputin's heart with a lovely tan head. Foamier than most RIS. No strong scent - just mild hints of caramel and coffee. These two flavors are distinct in the taste though. Serve this puppy pretty warm - cold it tastes boozy but at 50-55 degrees that goes away and the beer is silky smooth. I do like a few other RIS's more but this is the best year-round version. A true classic.
