500ml into a teku.

A: Pours a solid red-tinged black with a huge thick tan head.

S: Roasty, slightly vegetal carob from the intersection of the yeast and malts, cola, cocoa, light anise.

T: Taste brings charred grain, mild raisin, more roast, bitter dark chocolate.

M: Medium-thick bodied with moderate carb.

O: A little too much roasted malt and the Belgian strain doesn't add much complexity. Meh.

Pours a dark brown with light passages at the edges. Not much head, some lacing. Nose features milk chocolate, some fruity belgo notes, cocoa, roast, and honey. Taste has heavy dark chocolate up front followed by signing act Belgian yeast character and some licorice notes. Mouthfeel is moderate with medium carbonation. Overall, decent flavors here, not as hearty as I'd hope for a RIS.

2014 Vintage, black label.

A - Pours thin, very large head. Doesn't look like any RIS I've seen, maybe a RIP (porter)?

S - Chocolate, licorice, yeast, and hot metal shavings. The metalic smell is a little distracting.

T - Thankfully, this tastes much better than the appearance and smell would tell! Dark malt, nice taste of honey, belgian chocolate, licorice, belgian yeast esters. Figs roll as it warms up, but other dark fruits seem to be absent, or hidden. Slight alcohol sweetness. Lingering roast.

M - Medium; but for a RIS, thin. Pretty effervescent, small bubbles galore. Sticky.

O - A nice stout, but calling this a RIS feels wrong. To me, this resembled nothing what a RIS is generally considered. Nevertheless, tasty brew, 7.99 for 500ml is a decent price for a try.
