Pitch black. Held up to the light, and the light has no chance. Forms a little of a tan head that is leaving some nice lacing behind.
Not as strong a smell as I expected from the looks of it. Mainly smokey with hints of chocolate and coffee.
Coffee, chocolate, smoke, vanilla. Can't really taste the alcohol at all, and finishes with a bitter coffee aftertaste.
Feel is nice, smooth and full.
This was what a RIS is all about. While not the best example of the style I have had, this is a really good one. Big, in your face, no doubt this is a serious beer. It isn't the best example of the style I have tried, but easily one of the better ones. Worth seeking this one out.

Had this on draft @ Local Option after I had a BORIS. Side-by-Side I favored the BORIS although I realize different styles at play here.
Dark fruity sweet smell with some bitter chocolate. Great head (dark brown) and thick lacing. Complex flavor with roasted malts / dark fruit and it seems that dark fruit influence lingers on the aftertaste for awhile which is a good thing. Nice change from some of the hoppier, heavier roasted brands like Plead the Fifth (which I enjoy as well).
