22 oz bomber into a oversized snifter.
I really appreciated this middle of the road stout. I'm not a huge RIS fan, but I can get a little bored with regular stouts. This one finds a happy medium, with good flavors without being overpowering.
Completely opaque, with a nice sized head. Looks like a big stout should. Each time I took a whiff, the smell waffled between sweet/bready and roasted bitterness. There are 65 IBUs in this thing and they show up in the flavor. It is sweet up front, but there is plenty of bitterness here, both from the roasted and charred malts and the loads of hops present. Firm, yet smooth mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. It sat too heavy in my gut and I felt the alcohol too much for a good drinkability score. But, if its just one, this is a great beer.

Picked up a bomber from Total Wine in late March for $4.99.

Beer poured black with a nice full tan head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is mocha, roast, ans espresso.

Taste is roasty with hints of espresso and dark chocolate. Finish has a nice hop bit to balance things out nicely.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall this is a very good brew. Definitely seek this one out!

No light is getting through this one. Inky black with a creamy tan head. The head dissipates down to a slight disc that leaves some nice lacing. The aroma is mild, with some light notes of roasted malt and coffee. The taste is pure dark roasted malt. It has a nice burnt astringency tempered with a nice earthy hops on the finish. It has a good weight to the body and a nice silky feel on the palate. It's a straight-forward rich and malty stout.
