pityu (622) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle - Opaque black colour, medium, stable brown head, lacing. Strong coffee and chocolate aromas, some ash, burnt breadcrust, cocoa powder. Taste is bittersweet, lots of coffee and dark chocolate, some caramel, ash notes. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, creamy texture, some alcohol warmth in the end, but not offensive. Its totally about roasted and coffee aromas, nice, but a bit unbalanced for this reason.

Lele (408) - Padova, ITALY - DEC 6, 2015
ASPETTO: nero impenetrabile, ma si vede con moltissime impurità. Schiuma quasi assente. AROMA: il sentore predominante è, paradossalmente...il peperoncino. Non ho mai sentito un odore così. Seguono un cioccolato e un caffè forti, nonché del cacao amaro. GUSTO: soprattutto cioccolato dolce, caffè e liquirizia. Un tocco come di legnoso e di vaniglia. Carbonizzazione molto bassa (forse un po’ troppo). CONCLUSIONE: birra molto gustosa, ma non povera di difetti sia nell’aspetto che nell’aroma e nel gusto. Quell’aroma di peperoncino è decisamente strano, ma ci sta. Comunque decisamente apprezzabile.

alteregoo (863) - POLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się niewielka, beżowa pianka, szybko redukująca się do obrączki jak na cappuccino. Barwa ciemno brązowa, nieprzejrzysta, z kawałkami drożdży pływającymi przy dnie. Aromat przyjemny, wytrawny, zdominowany przez palone ziarna wysokiej jakości kawy, w tle odrobina sosu sojowego i koniak. W smaku wita nas fajna słodycz, czego nie zapowiadał zapach i dość wysokie odfermentowanie. Kawa dominuje także w ustach, towarzyszą jej palone słody, delikatne taniny i wanilia (dębina). Goryczka średnio wysoka i długa, podbijana likierowym alkoholem, który rozgrzewa chwilę po połknięciu. Nagazowanie niskie, rzadka konsystencja jak na RISa. Mocna zimna kawa (właściwie esencja) z dodatkiem niewielkiej ilości coli i whisky, z przyjemnym aromatem i fajną goryczką. Na RISa mało ciała i nie do końca ułożony alkohol...

MrHangover (3901) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2015
Draft @ Brouwcafé de Molen. Pours a pitch black beer with a medium sized, tanned head on top. Aroma of malt and mocca, really not much else. Touches of roast are present though. Flavor is sweet with loads of roasted malts, bittersweet mocca. Does exactly what the name says, and not much else. Nicely carbonated, medium long sweet finish.

R4N5H (756) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2015
Draught at The Druggist, Singapore on 16-Oct-2015. Black in colour with a thin tan coloured head. Amazing aroma of expresso, chocolate and malt. Full body and soft carbonation. Taste follows through on the aroma, but with roasted malt and some liquorice sweetness. A warm chocolate and coffee finish.

kapusil (1140) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 24, 2015
0.33l bottle. Pitch black body, thin white head. Aroma of coffee and floral hops. Taste of coffee, cream, floral hops and some chocolate. Medium to full bodied and creamy. Nice one, but somehow it’s not that complex.
