corkyrory66 (809) - 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.

Very pleasing aroma of a coffee and raisins. I liked the appearance as well, the foam is coffee-colored. The taste is heavy and intense just as the beer itself.

Black, coffee colored head. Smells dried fruits, raisins, coffee. Full body, oily texture, obvious but soft carbonation. Big sugar aftertest, maybe even too stong. Overall still quite good.

Barwa czarna, piana beżowa drobno i średniopęcherzykowa, szybko opada. Po zamieszaniu w szkle, szybko się odbudowuje. Aromat palony, czekoladowy, likierowaty. Bardzo przyjemny. W smaku podobnie, czekolada, paloność, likier i lekki alkohol. Piwo jest treściwe. Jak na swoją cenę, jest to bardzo ciekawy RIS.

nihtila (1352) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2015
10.10.2014. Looks great. Strong coffee aroma with cocoa and plenty or roasted and burnt malts. Dark fruits. Taste is fruity dry, roasted, surprisingly smooth for the abv. Soft, rich. Gentle bitterness. Slightly oily. Very nicely balanced, not too heavy but full and rich. More on the dryish bitter side.

ovviamente scura,con schiuma marrone a grana grossolana/media abbastanza spessa che si riduce ad un sottile livello,comunque persistente..aroma sensazionale: frutta sotto spirito,caffè,alcune note di liquirizia,sostanzialmente sentori molto dolci (luppoli assenti)..gusto all’inizo dolce,rispecchia le sensazioni dell’aroma,finale decisamente amaro (tostato pronunciato)..corpo pienissimo e carbonazione media...wow!!!!!!

Bardzo przyzwoity RIS. Wręcz taki wzorcowy i sympatyczny. Nie znaczy że nijaki bo pierwsze skojarzenie jakie z nim miałem to George Mikkellera. Da się te piwa porównać, chociaż ze wskazaniem na to drugie.

Pedrens (131) - SPAIN - MAR 9, 2015
Botella de 33 cl, a medias con Marta, color marron muy oscuro casi negro, se percibe la densidad al servirla, espuma marrón clarito de buena formación y bastante buena persistencia, deja algo de rastro, aspecto jabonoso. Aromas a cacao (en polvo), paja, heno, tofe, ciruelas pasas, azúcar moreno, café, alcohol y un pokito a fango al principio. En boca se nota la alta densidad, cremosa-aceitosa, carbonatación presente. Entra con una dulzura potente (se percibe el azúcar quizás), y los sabores afines del aroma, de forma algo brusca rompe para pasar a un amargo bastante potente donde predomina el chocolate negro y los lúpulos, el final en el mismo plan pero más dominado por los lúpulos. El alcohol está presente, pero aunque se nota se hace muy agradable…no es ocultado o camuflado es como otro rollo diría maquillado. No esta mal auqne por ese precio…hay algunas otras que me gustan mucho más. Peor vamos que me ha gustado bastante.

furthur (332) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle, black opaque body, bubbly head the color of espresso crema, decent lacing. Aroma is dried plums, cherries, cookie dough, molasses, burnt sugar. Taste is molasses, figs, coffee, cherries, burnt sugar, anise. Palate is a little light, carbonation properly subdued. Fairly sweet in the middle, finish is almost dry, but not really. Warm going down.
