AndresTM (306) - Vienna, - DEC 13, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 The pour is deep black and the head is frothy, creamy, and dark tan in color. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, raisins, chocolate fudge, oak, and tar. It’s a shame it’s so subdued, because it’s phenomenal upon close inspection. The taste is quite interesting: it starts out bitter from the roasted malts, then turns into delicious dark chocolate, and culminates with a dark note, a little like soy sauce, a little like earth, and a little like ashes. The mouthfeel is substantive, with a full body and prickling carbonation. Alcohol more implied than felt.

NordicV (1138) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2014
I stort sett svart öl med brunt skum. Doft av rostad malt, kaffe och antydan av mörk choklad. I smaken tillkommer lite ek, aska och lakrits. Fyllig med lätt alkoholsötma som balanserar den rostade beskan.

Barwa: ciemna, z rubinowymi refleksami, dosyć gęsta i oleista. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka i dość szybko opadająca. Aromat: melanoidyny, suszone owoce (śliwki, wiśnie, może jabłka), czekolada, kawa oraz wyraźna nuta alkoholowa. Smak: zdecydowanie pełny i początkowo słodki. Następnie bardziej wytrawna kontra ciemnych i palonych słodów wraz ze zdecydowaną goryczką. Mamy czekoladę gorzką, kawę i spieczone ciasto oraz wyraźnie alkoholową, przyjemnie rozgrzewającą końcówkę. Tym razem bardziej klasyczny imperialny stout z De Molena. Jest to konkretne i mocne piwo, jak na RIS-a przystało, do tego nieco słodkie na początku, ale z konkretna goryczką, czyli wszystko, jak lubię.

djd07 (3480) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle thanks to Rick. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong roast, booze, wood. Thin mouthfeel with rich roasted malt, dark chocolate and nice roast dry finish.

Ferris (3885) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle - Dark roast malts and bitter chocolate. Deep jet brown with a thin beige head. Nice rich dark chocolate and a long creamy chocolate finish. Surprisingly easy drinking for a huge beer.

Welley_Alves (215) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 15, 2014
Ótima RIS holandesa. Cor negra opaca, baixa formação de creme bege. Aroma evidente de torrefação, café amargo, complexidade presente. Na boca, corpo aveludado, com amargor intenso, algo cítrico, algo da torrefação, seguindo-se das notas de chocolate e baunilha. Final seco com café evidente, álcool muito bem inserido. Excelente breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StefanSD (2116) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 8, 2014
750 ml bottle courtesy of angst, thank you. Vintage 2011. Pours a dark brown--nearly black color with a small khaki head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is strong with dark fruits, molasses, and black licorice. The taste features coffee, chocolates, raisins, dates, toffee and bitter nuts. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Very tasty RIS, I loved it.

Színe akár az éjszaka, áthatolhatatlanul fekete, sűrű és olajos testével egyetemben a legenyhébb fokú meglepettség érzetét sem keltik bennünk. Levegőztetve az alapvető illatjegyek összekapaszkodásának lehetünk orrtanúi, zamatos kávé és földes, pörkölt aromák végtelenül sima és kiforrott karaktere tornyosul a pohár fölé. Egyetlen hatalmas hibát fedezhetünk csak fel az ismerkedés során: poharunkat a legnagyobb bánatunkra csak háromnegyedig tölti meg. Ez ugyanis az a fajta ital, amit a stoutok iránt gyengéd érzelmeket tápláló sörbarát bármikor képes lenne fogyasztani lényegében bármilyen, a biológiai-kémiai törvényszerűségek által felállított keretek közötti mennyiségben. Tökéletes, letisztult ízek kényeztetnek minket, melyek a bársonyosan krémes, kávés jelleg, egy barátságos hangvételű édesség, majd egy komlós-alkoholos, élénkítő hatású zárás között mozognak. A könnyed fogyaszthatóság felé mutat az ehhez éppen ideális vastagságú test, mely telt és gömbölyű zamataival minden kortyot lágy lepelként olvaszt szét a szánkban. Klasszikus a javából.
