alteregoo (853) - POLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się minimalna, jasno brązowa pianka, która szybko znika. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z niewielkim brązowym refleksem. Aromat to głównie kawa i czekolada, w tle odrobina wanilii i orzeszków coli. W smaku słodkie, gęste, treściwe, wręcz oleiste, masa czekolady, pralin i likieru kawowego, domyka to przypalany karmel i dość wysoka, palona goryczka, idealnie balansująca piwo. Niskie wysycenie, brak kwaśności, delikatna tytoniowość w posmaku. Dzięki fajnej gładkości nieziemsko pijalny trunek.
Świetny RIS, kompletny pod względem konsystencji, słodkości, goryczki i balansu, ładnie ukryty alkohol, jedynie nieco bardziej złożony i intensywniejszy aromat dopełniłby szczęścia.

Inoven (267) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met familie. Donkerbruin bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is houtig en caramelachtig. Smaak is caramelachtig, chocolade-achtig, zoet en rokerig. Nasmaak is iets hoppig.

mariuspoenari (1375) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2016
33cl bottle, 1 year old. Dark brown pour with a thin beige head. Smells of chocolate, cocoa, cherries, figs, dates and cognac. Bitter, crisp, with notes of sour cherries, green hops, chocolate, subtle roasted coffee, whiskey and roasted malts. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation and a sticky bitter-sweet aftertaste.

yumyum (221) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
Based upon a 2011 bottle (enjoyed May 2016). Have had before relatively fresh and thought it was good. Aged bottle was an eye opener. Really enjoyed it. Minimal head but great mouthfeel and flavour. Really enjoyable

fkoolen (920) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Bottle at home. Pours pitch black, no head just some brown bubbles. Rich chocolate and milky coffee in the nose and taste, lightly bitter and alcoholic in the finish. Aftertaste is long, with coffee and chocolate again. Watery-medium body, low-absent carbonation. Bit of a letdown tbh.

guma44 (7) - - MAY 13, 2016 does not count
Almost no head. Smell of dark grains, a bit of chocolate and coffee. Overwhelming smell of dark roasted bread crust. A bit too much alkohol in smell. In taste the same. Overall good and drinkable RIS.
