Very dark brown to black, with a nice thick, dimpled beige head. The head stays nice and thick and lingers through the whole glass, with some nice lacing.
Rich roasty, chocolatey aroma with a touch of sweetness and some alcohol. It smells like a big one, and I can't wait to take a sip.
More bitter than I was expecting, almost a tad metallic - coming from what seems to be a combo of the burnt malts and some hops. The chocolate is there, but is more in the background than I expected. There is definitely a complexity there as I expect from a RIS though, with some good sweet malts backing ulp all of the above. I think it's just a little on the bitter side for my taste.
Nice and rich, as I come to expect from a good RIS. Moderate carbonation, and a nice creamy feel.
A very nice stout. For me, if the bitterness were toned way down, it would almost be perfect, as it is in most areas. I'm just not a fan of too much metallic hop bitterness in my stouts. But this is definitely a very solid beer.
