33cl bottle. Black opaque with a fluffy beige head. Lots of coffee and black chocolate. Sweet and sticky, syrupy, with a soft carbonation. Not really my thing.

Un impérial stout avec grains de café expresso répartis en 90 % arabica et 10 % robusta. Niveau abv de 9,5 %, pour 22° plato, avec 71 ebu. Houblonnage en nugget et cascade. Mon exemplaire pouvait attendre encore 2 ans, selon le brasseur … mais il ne savait pas que je ne pourrais pas attendre !!! Couleur marron noir à l’opacité très forte (ebc 80). Mousse brun clair, bien crémeuse et épaisse, stable à 5 mm. Arômes de cafés (au pluriel, et pour cause …), extrêmement fins, chocolat, massepain, crème caramel, pointe de vanille. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame très équilibrée malt torréfié/café. Arrière-bouche bien maltée, riche, dense. 2ème au fantastique ensemble avec du chêne ciré, cire d’abeille. Arrière-bouche complexe, très riche. 3ème à la très grande harmonie malt/café. Arrière-bouche avec pointe d’avoine, croûte de pain, feu de brindilles très délicat. Longueur à la texture superbe, au développement malté, grandes saveurs de café. Jambes fines, serrées, groupées. Levure de caractère, grande ligne. Alcool progressif, effectif et soutien manifeste aux saveurs. Finale qui se déguste, au sens propre du terme. CONCLUSION : quelle beauté, quels délices (au pluriel, comme les cafés), quelle plénitude !!

Bottle brought back from an Amsterdam trip. Pours black with a nice big thick foamy beige head. Nice coffee aroma. The taste is light spice with lots of coffee as expected. The coffee taste lingers theough the bitter finish. There’s some liquorice in there too. Rich with quite a nice creamy mouthfeel. Good beer.

Well, maybe I had too high expectations about this one to be superb coffee bomb.. It is coffee bomb, but other RIS qualities kinda lags behind. Nice moderate roasted malts, loads of coffee, cocoa, light licorice Mostly sweet with moderate bitterness. Very solid, but not outstanding Smooth, but somewhat too mild.

Ferris (12419) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle - Chocolate and almost minty notes. Deep jet brown black with a nice rich light brown head. Nice dark roasty notes, lots of chocolate and a nice bitterness. I get more chocolate notes than coffee, but it is still very rich and nice.

sonotono (248) - torino, ITALY - DEC 29, 2015
Nera con riflessi rossastri, bella schiuma cremosa marroncina. Odori e sapori tostati, cioccolato, caffè, liquirizia, leggermente liquoroso. Alcool ben nascosto, finale amaro di luppolo e di orzo tostato, a cui si aggiunge il sapore del caffè amaro. Molta buona.
