Intense imperial stout. Aromas of booze, coffe, dark ripe fruitts. Dry and hoppy on the palate. Pours a pitch black with an oily look in the glass.

wiwetu (83) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Butelka, 0,33. Mocny przedstawiciel w swoim gatunku. W aromacie kakao, czekolada, wędzona śliwka. W smaku mocno goryczkowe, przełamywane przez słodycz gorzkiej (tak!) czekolady. Do tego trochę wędzonki, alkohol nieźle ukryty, ale jednocześnie trochę zaznaczony, co wydaje się być tutaj świadomym działaniem. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi zarówno w aromacie i smaku trochę estrów; czuć też wiśnię, jeszcze więcej wędzonki. Bardzo ciekawe, złożone piwo. Jak na RIS-a o podobnych parametrach stosunkowo niedrogie (19 zło w Das Bier).

KW92 (523) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 13, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, niska.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Słodowe, paloność, kawa oraz czekolada gorzka. Czuć alkohol.
SMAK: Gęste, oleiste. Kawowo-torfowe. Dobrze "schowany" alkohol.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo fajny przedstawiciel stylu.

corkyrory66 (885) - BELGIUM - APR 24, 2015
IRS de 11 % abv, niveau ebu de 70,7 et rien moins que 25,4° plato... Étiquette sobre comme d’habitude, et joli logo sur la capsule maintenant. Couleur brun noir intense (ebc de 117). Mousse brun soutenu, épaisse puis nappage stable crémeux à 1 mm. Arômes de chocolat au lait extrafin, cappuccino, moka, malt cara. 1ère bouche veloutée sur un fantastique malt noir, puis malt grillé, noisette, houblon, très belle amertume. Arrière-bouche dense, intense, longue. 2ème avec café, chocolat noir, pointe de baies noires, écorce de tilleul. Arrière-bouche très intense, maltée, forte mais complexe. 3ème fine, nuancée, magique. Arrière-bouche avec une pointe de cognac, magnifique. Longueur complexe, avec des notes chocolatées splendides. Jambes bien marquées. Levure très sûre d’elle, elle mérite une dégustation à elle seule !! Alcool très bien dosé, progressif, superbe travail. Finale de pure délectation. CONCLUSION : du tout grand art, depuis le nez jusqu’à la finale. Texture magnifique, complexité, finesse. Un vrai IRS.
