StoutHead (945) - DENMARK - AUG 31, 2013
On tap. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste like aroma but adds vanilla, wood and booze. Sweet and pleasant with a little bit of bitterness in the finish. Full bodied. Overall very good - the barrel ageing is very balanced. Definitely one I'd drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Borresteijn (6496) - Zaandam, 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.

jbeatty (1244) - New York, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Jeffo! 08/06/2013. Pours black, thin light tan head fades to hazy layer of foam on the surface, tight ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma begins with whiskey- vanilla, coconut and melted caramel- light toffee chocolate roast, fudge and booze-soaked raisin, light cherry. Taste is spicy caramel and whiskey, subtle vinous notes, cocoa dusting, darker bitter roast amid lighter fruit elements,vanilla hiding in the background. Thick body, definitely some heat but drinks well. Very cool, hope to have more soon.

Bottle thanks to Bruce - cheers! It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is earth, roasty, toast, milk chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut, rocky road, fudge and treacle. The taste is rich-roasted malt, coffee, toast, earth, light spice, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, warming, cola, burnt caramel and dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Good depth of flavour. Nice balance and rather drinkable.
