Once warmed up, medium roasty aroma with mild alcohol notes and dark licorice candies. Flavor is medium to big roasty, with dark candied fruits, licorice and toffee flavors. Palate is a bit light and thin but otherwise an excellent beer.

adasko (985) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Typical RIS aroma, dense and thick, full of melted chocolate notes with dehydrated plums in chocolate in the background. Unfortunately it’s so wick, it should be much more intensive. It’s a pitch black beer, almost non-transparent, clear, with nice tanned, brown head. Nice lacing. It’s definitely full bodied, alcohol is not covered well enough. In taste it’s very dry, I prefer more sweet imperial stouts. This one is not balanced very good. It’s super bitter, full of frizzled notes. In the aftertaste has small touch of dark chocolate and massive bitterness. It heats your stomach very quickly. It’s very good beer, but I was expecting more. I think it’s very good for ageing.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av mörk choklad, starkt kaffe, lakrits, rostad malt, vanilj med toner av torv och rök. Lagom sötma, fin syrlighet, rund och len, komplexa smaker, beska med smak av bitter mörk choklad med rökig ton. Mycket gott!

Aromat przyjemny, czekoladowy, lekko owocowy. Nieco alkoholowy. Niezbyt slodkie, ale przyjemnie glebokie.

Bottle. Sensoric glass. Pitch black with medium, light brown, densed head. Poor head retention, good lacing. Medium roasted malts aroma, mainly coffee, dark chocolate, light liquorice, also light caramel aroma.Light to medium rasins and dark fruits aroma. In the background light boozy character. Taste is medium to high bitter from the beginning of degustation, nicely balanced with sweet malty character. Full body, soft carbonation, oily texture, finish is long and bitter. Light alcohol warming. Solid, well balanced RIS.Worth trying.
