First off, this beer absorbs light. It's that dark in color. The head never grew beyond a pinky and was tan in color. There is a little retention. The blackest stout yet, in my short life. The smell is explosive and full of strong roasted coffee with a crème smell. I'm talking about good coffee too, like the inside of your favorite coffee shop, and also a kind of a sugar smell. There is also a bit of alcohol in the nose but it's very faint and well controlled. I also get a bit of cinnamon in this too.
Glug glug glug.
Whoa... Tastes like coffee with a smooth, silky malt character. I also notice the instant warming feeling from this. It's as drinkable as coffee in my book. The coffee flavor is incredibly concentrated and the nose I get as I drink from my snifter really makes me feel like I'm drinking coffee. Towards the end of the taste is a bitter bite from both the alcohol and the bean flavor. There may be just a bit of dark ripe fruits, but not as I've tasted in other RIS's. The concentrated goodness that is this beer is an amazing thing to have pulled off. The mouth feel was a little flat I suppose but I can hardly hate it for that.
