on tap at Craft bar in London. Pours very dark black of course with dark mocha head. has all of the characteristics of RIS, from the looks but the heat tends to dominate, but that's what I expected.
didn't take notes, this is quick summary, but certainly worth trying as a sipper. a very slow sipper and half pint is plenty.
Serving type: on-tap

12.7 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter
A - Well, I'd be a fool to call this beer anything except black. It is topped with several inches of mud colored, sticky head.
S - The smell has elements of dark chocolate, anise, alcohol, and floral hops.
T - I taste roasted malt at first. I get kind of a burnt flavor. The alcohol is present and makes itself known. It has a bitter finish that lingers.
M - This beer is a straight 30w. I love thick beers.
O - This beer is exactly how I like my women: dark, thick, and full of alcohol, nom, nom, nom! But really this beer is not that great. It would be great on a cold day to warm you up. The mouthfeel and warming sensation are it's best attributes. I guess I was expecting a sweeter, maltier beer given the abv. The bitterness was not an attribute to my palate.

I was really looking forward to this beer, and was very disappointed. Appearance was fine, aroma was interesting, taste...not good. Molasses and cheap whiskey are the comparisons that spring to mind. Honestly, if I had brewed this beer, I'm not sure if I would consider it drinkable. ..and I've made some very high gravity, very dark imperial stouts.
