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.

0.33 bottle. Black in color with a small, tanned head. Aroma of dark malts, loads of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, and a touch of lactose. Taste is sweet, malty, caramel, once again a lot of chocolate. A full body, a creamy texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is even more chocolaty than the rest. Overall the beer is splendid - not insanely complex by very pleasant and most importantly tasty.

DandyWolfFloyd (860) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Aroma - alcohol hits first. There is also roast, coffee, anise, caramelized sugars, and dark fruits. Appearance - body is black. The head is minimal and beige. Rings out. Taste - has tobacco, dark chocolate, roast on top with undertones of raisins, prunes, and coffee. Superbly balanced. Not crushing. Palate - between medium and full, the texture slick and sticky, the carbonation on the softer side, the finish slightly bitter and long in length.

martin00sr (1981) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2016
Black with thick tan head. Roasted, raw licorice aroma. Light wood and yeast. Flavour has smooth and solid roasted malt with chocolate and licorice well combined. Bitterness is just about perfect with a little syrupy sweetness to balance. Relatively light yet very powerful.

A really serious Imperial Stout. With real character, roasted malt and coffee flavour, plus a dense texture.

Emek (185) - Wrocław, POLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Bardzo dobry, można powiedzieć klasyczny czy też wzorcowy RIS, Jednak ta dobra robota to również przewidywalność i też trochę... nuda. Nie można jednak nie docenić i pewnie leżakowane w beczce przeniosłoby mnie w kosmos. I może powinienem dać mu trochę poleżeć, to by się bardziej ułożyło [Butelkowane 24.06.2015]

cmacklin (576) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque, almost black with plenty of sediment and a small, short lived, brown head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice and caramel. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, licorice, dark chocolate and coffee with a dry, bitter, warming alcohol finish. Full body with a thick, oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent.

Tiny tan head. Opaque dark brown body, almost black. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, soy sauce and caramel. Kind of smokey. Bitter and sweet on the tongue at first. Long, slightly salty aftertaste. Brilliant!

Holy wow. Rich coffee and chocolate scent with some tobacco. Taste is strong and serious burn throughout. Taste also has a tart and warming spice. Mouth is full, claggy, and burning. Dark black with tan head. Tap
