Pours pitch black with small head. Aroma: roasty, malty, raisins, coffee with milk aroma. Taste: nice roastiness, malty but not too sweet, countered by hoppy bitterness. Nice warming palate. Great representative of the style.

Bottle shared by JB. All black body with a medium sized beige head. Strong licorice aroma with plenty of roasted malt, light smoked, some fruits. taste of dark chocolate, fruits, roasted malt, medium sweetness, crisp and roasted finish, leading to a dry coffee aftertaste. The alcohol was hidden well. Thanks for sharing JB.

Can’t believe they stashed 10% booze in this, totally hidden. Clear, can see red orange highlights, tan head. Lots of licorice in the nose, some in the taste, along with cola. A bit thin, and not much going on compared to some Imperial Stouts, but tasty nonetheless.

jake65 (3019) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle: Near black in color with a small ring of brown head. Sweet aroma of chocolate and dark pitted fruit, a little smoke. Taste is too sweet for my taste with a little more smoke coming through. Strong fruity sweetness and sugary. Boozy.

mgajdaczewa (1136) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 10, 2015
No słabizna! Aromat mimo likerowych wtrętów czekoladowych zdominowany przez żelazo i lżejszy aceton. W smaku zaskakująco wytrawne jak na risa, likier czekoladowy przechodzący w zmywacz do paznokci, metaliczność (albo zwietrzały chmiel, też możliwe) odczuwalna tez w smaku. Alkoholowy finisz. Brakuje ciała, treści... Wyraźnie wadliwe piwo.

Black color, brown head. Sweet, roasted, rich taste. Sweet, rich aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Sweet, malty, rich scent.

Procent (381) - POLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Ładny aromat - karmel, likier, suszone owoce. mocno palony. Barwa czarna, obfita, beżowa piana, kremowa u szczytu z ładnym lacingiem. W smaku likier czekoladowy, paloność, jest lekkie utlenienie, ale poza tym bardzo aksamitne, sporo ciała, alkoolu praktycznie nie czuć. Wysycenie średnie, mogłoby być niższe, by uwypuklić aksamitność. Dobry, solidny RIS.
