3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Elysium. Aroma: Dark chocolate, massive chocolate, bit of fruity notes, noble alcohol, turns annoying with time - feels like booze. Appearance: Great head, nitrogen-like effect, black, minimal ruby reflections. Taste: Bit flat, not very imperial, a lot of alcohol - very strong and getting stronger (finishing the beer is like drinking booze), chocolate, roastiness, hoppy notes, medium bitterness. Palate: Body is full (but low when comparing to other RISs), finish is alcohol and bitterness, sweet. Very poor RIS, a lot of aclohol.
