Opaque black with amber tinges where the light meets it. Dark khaki head that was about two fingers thick. Pretty good retention. A bit of lacing, though not much. Smells of dark coffee with notes of alcohol. There was also the sweetness of brown sugar present, with notes of dark fruit. Smell is a little on the weak side for a drink as robust as an imperial stout, though. Taste is a bit fruitier than I expected. Figs and raisins are most evident. The usual flavors also make their appearance. Coffee, chocolate, some caramel. Definitely malt-heavy. I can barely detect any hops here. Nice roasted finish. Medium-bodied, though a bit thin for the style. This is one of the lighter RISs I've had. This is still a pretty massive drink and the alcohol catches up to you after a while. Recommended.
