inbirraveritas (1300) - Budapest, - FEB 4, 2013
Bottled. Very deep dark brown in colour with a medium sized dark brown head on its top. Smell of roasted coffee beans. Tannic aroma with coffee, chocolate, brown sugar and some earth underpainted by alcohol. Long sweetbitter finish escorted by roasted malt, warming alcohol and resiny hops. Fine one with a syrupy texture.

jgb9348 (4981) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2015
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, chocolate (dark) and a bunch of coffee. Medium to Full-bodied; Very strong roasted malt flavour with a coffee and pungent bitter vanilla flavour with a lot of chocolate noticeable. Aftertaste has a large coffee presence with alcohol, roasted malt and vanilla around as well, fairly bitter from the coffee. Overall, a nice beer with a ton of coffee and chocolate notes and more roasted malt and alcohol flavours than I expected. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Southern Season in Charleson, South Carolina yesterday on 19-April-2015 for US$5,29 sampled in my hotel room here in Charleston, South Carolina on 20-April-2015.

heman (148) - Tychy, POLAND - APR 20, 2015
Piwo nie jest do końca czarne, raczej ciemno brunatne, aromat nikły, kawa nie dominuje. W smaku jest już bardziej wyczuwalna, jednak nadal nie bombarduje kubków smakowych. Wyraźna pełnia słodowa - coś jak ciemne pieczywo nie najwyższej klasy, takie z użytym kakaem jako barwnikiem. Na finiszu da się wyczuć goryczkę chmielową o ziołowym charakterze. Całość jednak pokrywana jest dość ordynarnym, gryzącym w gardło alkoholem. Sprawia to wrażenie konsumowania mocnego, likieru słodowego z lekko kawowym posmakiem.

Dark brown colour with light brown head. Aroma of caramel, but prevails coffee. Flavour is the same. Prevails notes of coffee with reminiscences caramel in aftertaste. Good brew but not superlative.

jsquire (3669) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2015
Dark beer out of the bottle with only the barest of a brown head. Nose of sweetened coffee. Molasses and brown sugar sweetness with bitter chocolate and lots of coffee ground bitterness. This is a pretty sweet coffee stout.

swieca (113) - POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Aroma: chocolate, chocolate, coffee. Earthy background. Pours pitch black with big, strong tan head. Complex taste, mix of coffee, roastiness, chocolate. Bitter finish, low carbonation. In my bottle there was some oxidation which was not so pleasant. Besides that - excellent stout.

Excalibur123 (244) - Soria, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2015
Muestra marrón oscuro con reflejos granates, media cabeza de espuma con buena retención; aromas a café, malta tostada, ciruelas pasas y frutos secos; en boca entrada potente y maltosa con ligero amargor, notas a café torrefacto, pos gusto largo y algo amargo, siguen notas a madera quemada; buen cuerpo con carbónico medio en una stout un tanto descompensada y más amarga de lo necesario.

Beeracolyte (49) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Piwo pite po rocznym le?akowaniu. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste piwo. Piana utrzymuje si? postaci drobnej warstwy. Ladna, drobnopecherzykowa. Na dnie sporo osadu dro?d?owego w postaci flokuluj?cych k?aczków. W aromacie kawa, czekolada, suszone owoce. W aromacie bardzo dobrze imituje lakier kawowy, z racji wysokiej kawowo?ci i lekkiego aromatu alkoholowego, który podkre?la imperialno?? i palonosc. W smaku jest g?adkie, oleiste, ci??kie. Na pocz?tek kawa i czekolada. Nast?pnie uderzenie s?odyczy, które porówna? mo?na do pos?odzonej kawy. Po s?odyczy do g?osu dochodzi nuta alkoholowa, która szybko przechodzi w gorzki, kawowy finisz. Na bokach j?zyka wyra?nie czu? czekolad?. Emelisse espresso stout to niegdy? pierwszy RIS jakiego pi?em i uwa?am, ?e jest ?wietnym przedstawicielem stylu. Idealny na pierwsz? degustacj? imperialnego stoutu. Ma wszystkie wa?ne cechy: oleisto??, ci??ar po??czony z g?adko?ci?, kawowo??, czekoladowo??, slodycz. Piwo kompletne i z?o?one.
