12oz bottle, vicious and black, thin tan head, great looking beer, malty and Sharp, coffee, burnt coffee, a little bit smoky and ashy. Its not favorite RIS, but quite delicious. As it warms I’m getting more chocolate and sweet, great stuff.

330ml bottle. Big hiss on opening, suggests over carbonation. Pours totally black, with a rocky beige head. Tar, resin, coffee on nose and palate, with a dark plum type flavour showing up. Pleasant long finish.. It is certainly fizzy, not right in a stout. (#309; brewed 18/11/09)

Hetek, vagy talán már hónapok óta karácsonyra félretett kincs.Elképesztő az egész, már annyian összefoglalták. Annyit jegyeznék meg, hogy a habbal vigyázni, teletöltöttem két 0,33-as kelyhet, és még mindig egyre csak szivárog ki... Ez a krémes, óriási hab, talán egy fürdőkádat is megtöltene. Színe olyan mint a legjobb cappuccino tetején. Mintha külön életet élne ez a sörből kiváló monstrum. Pörkölt kávé, rengeteg keserű csokoládé, kiváló minőségű igazi kakaópor, és ez csak az illata. Az ízében még ott van rengeteg gyümölcs, narancshéj és édeskés fűszerek, és nem annyira olajos és csak nagyon kicsit édes édes. Érezni a komlót is, itatja magát rendesen. Lecsengése keserédes és száraz. De kár a szavakért, ki kell próbálni...

’09 750ml. Still in the glass. Quite nice aroma of medium chocolate, oak barrel influence (cannot identify the type of booze in the barrel), liquored plum/raisin, and a smidge of underlying malt roastiness. Watery feel in the mouth; weak body. Taste follows mainly the aroma with the plum/raisin notes asserting a bit more. Quite a let down overall as the beer is flabby, loose, and imprecise.

On tap at Congregation Ale House, Long Beach Chapter. Black pour with a dense brown head. Nose is espresso, wood smoke, and alcohol. Taste is Belgian yeast, roasty malt, coffee, baker’s chocolate and an alcohol finish. Palate is full, finoshing dry, with a wonderful coffee aftertaste.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - DEC 1, 2010
11/28/10 notes: On tap, CAH. This is one huge RIS. Aroma has heavy spicy grain, black coffee, tar-ash, licorice. Body is syrupy thick, with LONG sticky finish. Flavor has coffee and char upfront, deepened with boozy sweetness, brandied dark fruit, searingly rich dark chocolate. Really demands warming to cellar temp to pick out all the flavors, something I didn’t quite do. A decadent, rich, dessert-and-nightcap beer, and a real treat to try.

jaghana (5233) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 27, 2010
Bottle 33cl number 173, from Allen thanks a lot. A very dark beer with low head. Smell is hopy, syrupy, and on dark chocolate. A very oily and dense beer, intense dark malt and dark chocolate body light smoked notes, coffee, heavy alcohol mouse-feel, intense hops presence quite resinous with reveals its grassy part once mouse is empty. This beer is a mix between a strong imperial stout and a strong black IPA. Dark fruit presence, prune, grapes, dark chocolate syrup and of course very bitter with 99 EBU !! Intense in all directions but does it mean a great beer with such an heavy astringency ?
