Borresteijn (4686) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Molen Beershop. Black colour, light-brown head. Aroma of loads of booze in the beginning, bourbon, sweet soy sauce, hard roasted - ashy - malts, molasses, coffee, chocolate. Flavour is sweet, less boozy than expected apart from the slight burn in the finish, bourbon, oak, soy sauce, molasses, coffee, hard roasted malts, firm bitter roasted malts in the finish. Full-bodied. Good, just a touch from great. This one really needs to mellow out a bit more imho, although I usually like RIS’s fresh.

Poured deep brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of roast malt, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee. Full body, flavour of sweet caramel, roast malt. Might cellar a bottle and see how it develops after a couple of years.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle n. 0679 from the De Molen shop
Black color with generous head. The aroma is initially very nice with a whiskey impression, but less interesting later with a vinous touch along dusty and milky roasted malts. Good body strength and smooth mouthfeel, not thick; strong flavor of roasted malts, some dry dark chocolate shavings, and a pleasant whiskey character; strong bitterness, and the alcohol too is quite strong; evident liquorice in the end.
Excellent as usual.
