UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Black in colour, dark beige head. Wonderful aroma of sweet vanilla, dark chocolate, burnt caramel and spruce. Superb and well balanced taste. Dark caramel, pine and some bitterness. Lingering bitter aftertaste with juniper hints of cigar box.

Bottle. Very intensive Belgian chocolates in the aroma. Black, unclear with low, brown head. In the taste there are chocolate as well, with fruits in the background- plums and raisins. At the end comes solid roasted bitterness. On the other hand, for me it could have more body. This is the type of beer, which you drink for about half an hour during the autumn evenings. This is the best RIS I’ve ever tried.

hrabren (940) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 23, 2016
Tasting at Višnja 666’ place, shared with her, Matea and Goran. Thanks Višnja! Dark brown, medium tan head. Leather, licorice, ash, roast, smoke, chocolate aromas. Dry turning to light sweet. Very thick, sticky, dry finish. Very good one, very full body.

SimonBlok (311) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2016
33cl bottle at home, bottled March 2014. Appearance: dark with low tan head. Aroma: chocolate, pleasant smoke, roasted malts, nesquick and dark roast coffee. Taste: farily high sweetness and high and hoppy bitterness that intensifies towards the finish. Notes of coffee, roasted nuts, chocolate, smoked malts. Also a tarty and intens bitter note that I can’t distinguish, that also comes back in the aroma. Palate: full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Quite happy to drink this again and again. Just great, the hops the malts the biscuityness. So drinkable.

Fat hos Reza. Svart som sig bör. Fyllig , kaffe åh humle samt lite sån där lakrits.faktiskt lite sötlakrits . Inte lika torr som Rasputin om du vill ha annan Imp Stout jämföra med. Goood

kostasgiotis (89) - GREECE - OCT 11, 2016
Pure black body with medium carbonation.The head is tanned and very small.The aromas are coffee,liquorice,maybe saome vanilla... It tastes bread, coffee, liquor,alcohol.Sweetness comes at first but it is quite bitter at the end.You can feel the alcohol but in the right smooth way.A great one and very complex.

Slautar (531) - Gdañsk, POLAND - OCT 5, 2016
Pub Browar Spółdzielczy, 04.10.2016. Ostatnia w najbliższej przewidywalnej przyszłości krasnoludzka posiadówa z przyjacielem więc i piwo powinno być wyjątkowe. I było. W aromacie i w smaku bardzo dobra, mocna kawa słodzona gorzką czekoladą i ciemnymi pralinami. Słodkie i półwytrawne jednocześnie. Gęste, kremowe, mocne. Doskonałe piwo.

Mocny aromat gorzkiej czekolady, kakao, kawa, praliny. Dzieje sie. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, na krańcach ciemny brąz. Piana beżowa, jak kawa z mlekiem, niestety szybko opadła. Smak mocno kakaowej czekolady, podobnie jak w aromacie. Przyjemnie delikatnie alkoholowa goryczka, niezalegająca, prawie jak czekoladki z alkoholem. Piwo gładkie, lekko słodkie z półwytrawnym finiszem. Bardzo dobre piwo.
