LoFi (1708) - Göteborg, - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle. Black with a light brown head. Aroma: hard lemon candies, snaps med dill, chocolate, licorice. Taste: roasted, licorice, vinous, red berries, licorice, chocolate, finish is light puckering. Quite full bodied. My least favourite IRS from Emelisse, I would have preferred any other single hop.

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
Bottle a little while past bb date, shared. Black with short lasting bubbly light brown head that leaves a little ring of bigger bubbles. Lots of chocolate, sweet coffee, lots of red fruits, strawberries even, a touch of green onion, cognac, raisins, vanilla, fudge. Super complex. Quite sweet with nice roasted bitter finish. Almost full bodied with nice velvety feel. Very good.

mariuspoenari (1291) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2016
33cl bottle - best before 12/15, hence 3 months off the mark. Mahogany pour, with a thin and fine-grained beige head that is slow to rise to the surface. Smells of roasted malts, a bit of smoke, dark chocolate, cocoa, sour cherries and a bit of bourbon, as well as some bubblegum-like smell that can only be the Sorachi Ace. The taste follows the same notes, big on coffee and dark chocolate. Super smooth texture with a chocolate bitter aftertaste.

Silvan7 (1060) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle @ home. nera , opalescente, con pochi riflessi mogano. schiuma beige fine e decisamente persistente. Aroma intenso,.tostato, cioccolato fondente, pastafrolla, erbaceo da luppolo, caffè solubile, caramello e liquore. molto fine e complessa. Gusto dolce abboccato all’ingresso con note di fondente, tostato di caffè e finale amaro ben bilanciato tra luppolo e tostatura. Molto corposa, lieve carbonatazione, calda, rotonda, equilibrata e armonica.

ZodiacM (759) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2015
Fles gekocht @Melgers in Haarlem. Schenkt een mooi zwart bier met een lichte cremekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma’s van gebrande mout, gedroogd fruit. Smaken van gebrande mout, gedroogd fruit, vanille, hop. In de mond is hij zacht en olie-achtig, een heerlijke IRS dus.

reebtogi (5522) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
330ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and licorice with some roasted grains. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with the licorice notes and a roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness. Medium to heavy bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a well crafted stout that must be sampled. I appreciated every sip of this beauty.
