Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into my Selkirk Abbey tulip.

Appearance: almost totally black with just hints of brown around the edges when held up to the light. Head is two fingers of frothy tan foam which dissipate slowly leaving a nice lace on the glass. Quite attractive.

Smell: very bready malt aroma with hints of rye, plus a pretty strong caramel and toffee character. Not a lot of coffee here, so it's not what I was expecting, but it's not bad nonetheless.

Taste: lightly sweet malt with more of that caramel-and-rye character. Coffee is present here, but it is quite subdued -- though it seems to pop up a bit in the aftertaste I would call this an American imperial stout long before I'd call this a RIS, but -- a tasty beer it is anyway.

Mouthfeel: big body with an OK carbonation. Texture is smooth but creaminess is kind of rocky. Not bad.

Overall: this beer is far from perfect, but it is quite tasty and the brewer has used a subtle hand when it comes to the coffee addition -- in a good way. This beer's definitely worth a try.
