(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 06-08-2016, from Pivovarský Klub, 20160819) The beer poured black. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had burnt malts, liquorice and dark chocolate. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, liquorice, sourness, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was sour, burnt and bitter. The aroma was nice but the taste was bit off.

Keg @ 20 PIP. Pitch black, medium size, creamy, beige head leaving good lacing. Roasted barley aroma, coffee and salt licorice. Velvety mouthfeel, mild carbonated. Licorice taste, sweet chocolate and toffee, roasted barley, coffee with cream. The finish is a bit sweet and mild chalky.

Ritzn (375) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2016
Deep black with medium dark brown head. Aroma is nuts, dark chocolate, phenols, licorice, a little coffee. Taste is more phenols, bitter, and not much else. A little one dimensional. Finish is more of the same stuff. Too phenolic. But not totally bad either.

SinH4 (2531) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2016
Tap at 20 PIPA. Black color with dark beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some booze, something off as well. Taste is more dark malts, black chocolate. Not bad, but doesn’t stand out among Imperial Stouts.

karpik (624) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Coffee, chocolate in aroma. Almost pitch black colour, tan head. Taste is medium dry, cocoa and coffee predomiante, bit oily texture. Overall solid, easy drinking RIS. On tap at Zly Casy, Praha.

Aroma of tar and coffee - my drinking mate, a ballerina, really wasn’t digging this style but she tried it anyways and agreed - no coordination can be expected after a glass of this. Flavour is nice heavy barley, with coffee and charcoal notes. It’s a bash over the head with heavy flavours and hop oils. A great imperial stout.

sebletitje (9075) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2015
33cl swing-top bottle courest of and shared with Tderoeck. Brune foncée, pas de col. Arôme est malté chocolaté, pâle et caramel, note fruité noire avec un léger rétro adouci. Palais est malté, chocolaté, caramel gardant une inspiration purement allemande et rappelant le mélanoďde donnant un fini surfait et doux. J’ai du mal ŕ y trouver une inspiration stout alors que le tout penche vraiment plus sur l’allemand.

Thanks to tderoeck! 330 ml. swing-top bottle sampled. Black, little mocha. Nose is heavy on chicory coffee, licorice, herbal, bitter, leaves,… Taste is bitter herbal, chicory coffee, roast, herbal, boozy soy sauce & ashes. Very roasted & grainy body. Decent for its kind but overall still one of those bitter, herbal, chicory coffee tasting RIS’s.
