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.

Bottle. The milkshake head on this thing made it look like a dessert, and I wasn’t disappointed! Thick, milky, creamy, and rich with dark chocolate, this is a dreamy, warming beer, and an excellent way to cap the evening during this downpour that’s knocked out my satellite reception. Could be a new favorite (except it’s a little pricey here). Exceptional.

From bottle. A rich aroma with alcohol, raisins and chocolate. The foam is weak and looks pink. The appearance is darkbrown-black. The main taste has a firm bitterness and even som more sweet. In the aftertaste the sweets stays and the bitter grows. This beer has lots of body. A great beer!

drpimento (2628) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Boom boom; out go the lights! This is one serious beer. Poured at a good temperature with an medium size, tan, foamy, frothy, sudsy head with brown highlights and a little lace. Aroma is a little mild and has malt, coffee, cocoa, roasty, dark ripe fruit, molasses. Flavor’s like nose, Bitter, sweet, and mild tang are very well balaanced and marry in harmony with just the right body and carbonaton. Finish is like flavor, of average length, and has a little boozy warmth. Understated greatness.

Linnet (1387) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2015
Rich luscious, velvet, alcohol, roasty, coffee. Chocolate, licorice, black colour, medium beige head, lacing. Lots of fruity hoppiness, citric, resinous, bursting of tropical fruits and pine. Big bite, lightly sweet (for the style), salty, ABV evident, but very well integrated. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, hoppy and aromatic finish. Two words: world class!

0,75 l botle at the Deltabier festival march 2010. Due to the roasted malts this beer has a very explicit dark coffee taste. Low carbon and nice black colour Good balanced.

nearbeer (4382) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2010
300 ml. Opaque black with a lasting thin film of cream. Aroma of espresso with cream, cookie dough, berries, and cocoa. Heavy body is just right: not too sticky, not too thin; smooth as silk; and dangerously chuggable with a barely noticeable 11% abv! Beautiful soapy lacing. Flavor is an excellent blend of espresso, Oreo cookie, bread dough, dark fruit, tart berry, sour cream, cured tobacco, prickly green herb, and slight char.

Another great beer from this brewery. Pours near black with an oak-brown foam. Chocolate and coffee dominate, but with hints of licorice. The high alcohol is surprisingly disguised.
