4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 33cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured thick black motoroil with a big three finger light brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, molasses, pipe tobacco smoke, coffee, licorice. Taste pretty much a continuation of the wonderful aromas, with hints of walnuts, whole wheat raisinbread, and toffee. A full body, all sorts of wonderful things going on in my mouth with every sip I take. Very thick, bittersweet and sticky aftertaste. This is one badass brew.

Good and satifying.

Aroma: plum, butterscotch, caramel, chocolate, coffee, alcohol
Taste: alcohol, chocolate, roasty, plum, dried fruits
Alcohol is dominating it, to me it’s undrinkable because of that. It needs a lot of ageing

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Delicious roasty aroma, chocolatey with sweet hints. Coffee dark with nice frothy beige head. Dark chocolate, bit alcoholic, sweetness gets quickly overwhelmed by a bitter, VERY bitter finish. Full-bodied, sticky, it’s more carbonated than I’d expect. Not the best RIS I’ve head, but worth trying.

Totalmente negra, espuma marrom escura de media formação e pouca persistência. Aroma alcoólico, leve defumado, toffe de chocolate, licor. Paladar trasparece mais o café, chocolate torrado. Corpo médio, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste prevalesce o café e um bem leve defumado.
