look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: dark dark brown,heavy tan head

S: bitter hops, roasted notes like chocolate and coffee. Interesting hoppy smell.

T: hoppy flavor brings out the roasted notes and bitterness. Very nice.

M: medium body for a stout and fairly heavy carbonation for an imperial stout.

O: solid beer, interesting change up. This is the anti-milk stout. Cost me $15 for a 6-pack, though.

From notes on 12/29/2011

4/5 Pous out dark as night with a two-finger, dark beige head with decent retention.

4/5 Smell is dark malts, some dark fruits, and some faint hops that really mellow the sweetness out.

4/5 Taste is nice dark malts, dark fruits, and a little more hops than in the nose. Taste is well balanced. I really like this beer.

4/5 Mouthfeel is medium+ and great for the style.

Had this on 2012-01-15 in Columbia, PA

A - Midnight black with a big 2.5-finger, pillowy mocha head with very good lacing.

S - Sourdough bread, vegetal, cheese, some hop cones. Not real strong and kind of weird.

T - Definitely not the expected RIS taste. This is pretty well-hopped, which sits atop a spicy well-toasted grain base that has some chocolate malt sweetness. The lingering aftertaste gets its bitterness both from the roast and the hops. Not very boozy. Tastes better than it smells.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Both smooth and prickly.

O - Reminds me of a creamy black DIPA as much as a RIS. I enjoyed the taste and mouthfeel.
