Full and hoppy. Hops come out above the roasty flavors.

Reminded me more of a black IPA than an imperial stout. Being that RIS is my favorite profile, I didn't favor this hoppy deviation. If someone poured me one and told me I was about to drink a black IPA, I might regard it as a very favorable IPA.

I was not expecting the bitterness you would expect from an IPA. Besides that, I really liked this beer, and could only think of pairing it with a nice slice of chocolate cake.

More of a black IPA to me than a stout, just seems really hoppy, not what I was expecting. Not bad though.
