From bottle. Bottled April 2011. Pours deep brownish black with no transparency. No head or much carbonation. Smell is amazing. Roasty chocolatey spicy and boozy with no hop aroma. Has a little oak/wood character. Looks and smells like a good quality imperial stout. Taste is incredibly dark bittersweet chocolate with coffee notes. The bitter chocolate really lingers in the after taste. The mouthfeel is very thick and slick. However I am really missing some carbonation and I wish there was a little more yeast and hop spice to give a little balance. This could just be my bottle though. Anyway. Disappointed in this, and at $11/12 oz bottle, I'm not itching to try to buy another when there are so many great Imperial Stouts out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eluosiren (51) - Moscow, RUSSIA - OCT 6, 2014
Hell and Temptation is a nice RIS, but for me the taste is too bitter and too much of a "cigar bag" taste
