Hell and Temptation is a nice RIS, but for me the taste is too bitter and too much of a "cigar bag" taste

330 ml bottle rescued from the LCBO clearance shelf. Bottled Nov 8 2012 (23 months ago). Pours pitch black with small mocha head, on a very aggressive pour. Nose is coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, cherries, some booze. Low carbonation, creamy/sticky mouthfeel. Taste: cocoa, vanilla, sweet cherry, coffee, cola, licorice.Very easy sipping. Short-medium finish. The bitterness others mentioned is not present in this 2-year old bottle.

Pitch black beer with no head what so ever. Aroma has coffee, licorice, plums and chocolate. Taste has some red wine / tannin, plums, roasted malts. coffee and quite bitter ending. Full body with low carbonation. Pretty bitter IS with some plums and tannin. Great but not awesome.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2014
Flaske, 33 cl. Sort, lidt flad at se på, med et lavt, men stabilt beige skum. Har tidligere fået nogle af de mange versioneringer af denne klassiker, men er først nu nået til originalen. Sødlig ristet næse. Chokolade, kakaopulver, blomme, Bassets lakrids-konfekt. Fyldig, cremet, fed, ristet bitter, saltet. Go nat øl.

darrennelson12 (453) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
In bottle; pours very dark with a thin light brown head. Aroma is almost tart with coffee/smokey notes ... not sure I like the aroma on this one at all. Taste is roasty and malty, quite easy drinking ... just struggling getting past the aroma

ericdevin (943) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Draft at The Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours an opaque brown/black, very little head. Aroma deep and roasty, baking chocolate, marshmallow. Body arch and sharp, finish a sticky-sweet and surprisingly bitter roast/resin affair. Nice, but a bottle probably does this better justice.
