Bov (10481) - Bienne, - SEP 11, 2012
from Erzbierschof - pours a black beer with no head retention; roasted and gently smokey; aroma of cacao and black cherries; some vanilla and chili peppers; full-bodied, pretty dry and fairly bitter; more sharp notes, roasted malts and chocolate in the finish - character, complexity and balance

Bottle. Black body with a light tanned head. Aroma of grains, black coffee, chocolate and mild smoke. Taste of dark chocolate, sweet fruit, light spicy, roasted malt. Roasted hot sting in aftertaste. Quite a good beer!

mzaar (2050) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
Flaska. Helt svart öl med ett moccafärgat skum. Dofter av kakao, lakrits, peppar och rostade toner. I smaken träder så äntligen chillin fram och ger ett intensivt och härligt bidrag till kakao, lakrits och en gnutta kaffe. Avslutas salt. Biter till i eftersmaken. Något tunn kropp, men på det stora hela en njutbar öl. Om man gillar chillie-hetta.

9.8%ABV. Imperial stout. Thin brown head. Color was a inviting stout black. 40ºSRM. Nose was full of savory left over brewer’s yeast, Marmite or Vegemite. Soy umami in the nose with plenty of darkly roasted barley and wheat. Medicinal aroma of ’lo han go" 罗汉果. Pronounced carbonation balances an aggressively alcoholic palate that strangely stuns your palate then allows all the richly bitter flavors of darkly roasted malt melt onto your tongue. The alcohol also helps to vaporize all the beautiful herbal and medicinal flavors of the aformentioned lo han go, honey dates and caramel with a pinch of tobacco and carry them into the back of the throat for an entirely different sensory experience! Quite intriguing. Nice prolonged finish of a measured slow release of bitter hops and burnt toast. Goes on favorites list

jamwnukers (37) - Legionowo, POLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Lane w Pubie Pułapka w Gdańsku
Aromat - Mocny aromat. Nuty czekoladowe, palone, wanilia. Wspaniale pachnie!
Wygląd - Piana beżowa, zwarta, gęsta, drobnopęcherzykowa. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piania pięknie zdobi pokal
Smak - Wspaniały, orzechy, czekolada, ciemne i palone słody. Czuć lekką alkoholowość, ładnie rozgrzewa przełyk. Oleiste i gęste.
Podsumowanie - Takie piwa warto pić!

Mooie zwarte kleur met een mooie bruine kraag. Ruikt koffie, vanille, chocolade, beetje bitter, beetje alchol. Smaakt vol, koffie, vanille, créme, beetje bitter en alcohol.

Tap at El Bait Shop. Super dark dense pour with a brown head. Chocolate, roasted malts, hint of pepper, and a hint of salt. This is very interesting and tasty. Love it.

Butelka, warka do 09/01/20. Niska, lekko bezowa, drobna, szybko opadajaca piana. piwo chyba klarowne, dosc ciemne wiec trudno ocenic, ale zarazem nie czarne a raczej ciemnobrazowe. aromaty ewidentnie risowe, takie jakie powinny byc, sa sliwki, rodzynki, czekolada, palonosc, kawa - ladnie ulozone. Alkohol w aromacie ladnie schowany. ale w smaku juz nieco inaczej - alkohol z nalozona na niego ostroscia chilli jest dosc ewidentny i to w niekoniecznie fajny sposob. reszta nut z aromatu niby tez wyczuwalna, ale jakos niezbyt intensywnie. obiecanej soli morskiej raczej nie czuc - moze to i lepiej? lekko kwaskowato na palony sposob. malo ciala jak na RISa. nisko wysycone.Sumarycznie - calkiem niezle, przyjemne piwo. ale tylko niezle przez alkohol i brak ciala.

Bottle; pours nearly black with a thin ring of beige head; aroma is chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt with a hint of peppers; taste is coffee and chocolate with hints of salt and peppers; finish is dry with a little bit of bitterness and some chili pepper hints; pretty good and I glad the chili peppers are more of subtle flavor here as it works quite well
