fantti (675) - FINLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Kaatuu lasiin sysimustana noin sormen paksuisella pysyvällä vaahdolla. Intensiivisestä tuoksusta löytyy paahdetta, lakritsia, kahvisuutta ja makeampaa soijakastikemaisuutta, lakritsin ollessa vahvin, muttei mitenkään järin dominoiva. Maku jatkaa intensiivistä linjaa, lakritsin ollessa jälleen vahvin. Soijamaisuutta on nyt reilummin ja kahvi sekä paahde on taustalla. Lievää yrttiliköörimäistä otettakin on joukossa. Suutuntuma on hyvin tuhti ja hieman hyökkäävä, sekä alkoholin että humalan vaikutuksesta. Hyvä IS, tuhti ja sopivan monipuolinen, jossa mennään lekritsisuus edellä. Hieman turhan hyökkäävä, muuten loistavaa siemailtavaa.

Shark_Pants (146) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2014
Beautiful pitch black with a nice beige foam that lasts throughout. Usual IRS aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, some vanilla and molasses. The taste is very similar to the smell and is really well balanced between bitterness and sweetness. Hides the 11% ABV fairly well. Lovely oiliness and viscosity to the mouthfeel that gives it a fantastic richness. Wonderful beer and one of my current favourites in the style.

Gerbeer (1664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours black with moderate tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, heavily roasted malts, vanilla, creamed coffee, and light alcohol. Rich flavors of all of the above. Silky smooth with a dry finish.

Bottle 33 CL. Pours dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma is grainy and coffee. Taste is superb, coffe and chocolate, sweetness and bitterness are perfectly balanced. Full body, medium carbonation. Amazing drinkability for this kind of beer.

Mrnoluv (145) - long beach, California, USA - MAY 16, 2014
The aroma is perfect, coca, sweet malt, a dark cherry smell, the look is incredible dark black, the taste is coffee, sweet chocolate, bitter chocolate, it goes down pretty smooth for an 11%, but that heat starts to linger in the throat. This is a great beer, I would put it in the milk stout category however.
