Made with the most heavily peated malt in the world from the Bruichladdich distillery. Almost pitch black and opaque, small head. Furiously peated aroma, hiding the malt, licorice and dark chocolate somewhat. Very full bodied, thick mouthfeel, like fluid bread. Dark chocolate, loads of peat, lapsang souchong tea, chocolate cake, culminating in an almost endless aftertaste that also has licorice.
Alcohol varies by batch.

Mycket fyllig å Patrikarna älskar fylliga komplexa doften. Smakar krämigt å lite vanilj kaffe mer mörk choklad. Fiiin mycket fyllig kraftig öl som precis håller på gå över gränsen. Köp å drick

Deep brown to black colour. Very strong smoaked and toffy aroma. Would be better to let it it stay for few minutes before driink. Taste is more elegant - not so smoaked, chokolade, lacrice roasted a bit. Finish is awesome intensive chocolate sweetness with light toffy notes and trace of alcohol.

Pours an insanely dark black with a thin, dense beige head. The aroma is heavy and robust with notes of licorice, dark chocolate and peat smoke notes. The flavour profile is laden with tons of robust roasted malts. A dense, full bodied brew with tons of dark chocolate and espresso notes. The finish is heavy and bitter with light alcohol. A superb Imperial Stout.

Bottle (courtesy of Bierkoning - several years ago - this beer has done some traveling - Bottelnumber 1172, 9.5%). Earthy lapsang souchong, chocolate malt, and alcohol aroma. Dark brown with small tan head. Bittersweet peaty dark chocolate and coffee malt flavor. Light licorice aftertaste.

the aroma of dark fruits, caramel, chocolate, vanilla and coffee... the taste is smoked, caramel and chocolate, with hints of licorice, port, spices and coffee... very dry, smoked, sweet and spicy aftertaste... it’s a wonderful stout...

solidfunk (5169) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Huge peat here. Black pour without much head or lacing. Roast and chocolate. Not sure what this variety of tea is but there’s something a little odd here. Bitter finish. Tap at pizza paradiso.

Butelkowane 04.05.2012. Kolor nieprzejrzyscie czarny. Piana obfita, brunatna, pozostawia gruba warstwe. W aromacie dominuje torf, dalej lekka kawa i spora, ciemna slodycz, typowa dla RISa. W odczuciu nisko wysycone, gladkie. W smaku jest pewna dysharmonia, bo z jednej strony mamy kawe, palonosc, aromaty utlenienia - sliwki, rodzynki, wisnie oraz spora czekoladowa slodycz, ktora kontrowana jest przez niska, ziemista goryczke i lekkie alkoholowe pieczenie, a z drugiej mamy aromaty torfowe, ktore nijak sie maja do reszty piwa, obie strony sa obok siebie, ale nie wspolgraja ze soba. Mimo wszystko jest to calkiem smaczne, ale nie moze sie rownac np z fanowska wersja Smoky Joe.

Erg rokerig, veel lapsang. Weinig koolzuur, zelfs voor soort. Vol smaakpallet.
