Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Vanilla, tons of coffee, roasted and brewed, oak, dark cherries, plums, bourbon, alcohol-based plum beverage (like palinka), more coffee. A very nice BA stout, that might confuse some people, but I absolutely enjoy.

Pitch black pour with beige head. Roasted malt and a boatload of hops - resinous, citrusy, some tropical - dark chocolate, some coffee. A solid US-style imperial stout, roasty and hoppy and sweet. Very enjoyable.

Dark pour with a thin beige head. Roasted malt, licorice, smoke, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, toffee. Quite enjoyable, exactly what I'd expect from a RIS.
