I had a 2011 bottle of this and it pours a very dark black with a dark brown finger's worth of foam into a tulip glass. The smell is of chocolate and coffee, but leans more towards the chocolate side with little to no hop presence notable. Alcohol is well hidden, and the taste is thick, and has more of a bitter/roasted malt taste than the chocolate aroma would make you expect. Overall I liked this, but prefer Founders Imperial for a 'regular' RIS.

This brew pours a nice dark as cola hue with average carbonation that leaves behind a half finger head and little lacing,the smell upfront is all about roasty,roasty malts and piney hops,it has a medium bodied averagely carbonated mouthfeel and has tastes of caramel,dark roasted coffee,dark begian chocolate and is finished with a piney hop bitterness that really reminds you that this is not a desert brew but indeed a very nice nightcap and overall a very nice drop but have had better RIS's cheers.
