4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aged to perfection. Pours a dark espresso brown with frothy dark tan head that dissipates to a thin layer. Aroma is chocolate, a tiny hint of bourbon, faint notes of dried cherry, almonds and roasted malt. Flavor is a mix of raisin, cacao and a hint of sweet dried fruit balanced by roasted malts and rich grainy bread flavor. Body is creamy with light to medium carbonation. Very balanced.

Feels light medium bodied. Big bad mother fucking beer. Cheers!!!!!

Really surprised to see this in Angola, IN. Bomber (bottle conditioned in 2014) to snifter. Poured like motor oil with one finger brown foam head, faded quick. Smelled of roast, chocolate, hops. Thinner body, much dryer than expected. Flavor didn't match nose. Good, higher hopes.

650ml bottle from LCBO. 10% ABV. Opaque black body, medium chocolate head with long lasting foam. Aroma of dark chocolate, wood charcoal, hints of licorice, chocolate liquor, some shy hops behind the sweetness. Taste of burned toast, coffee, licorice, herbs, chocolate, a touch of spiciness and a late warming effect. Fabulous brew.

Ułożony, z dobrymi elementami składowymi smaku i zapachu. Ale nie porywa. Po prostu kolejny bardzo dobry RIS z genialnym aromatem.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a jet black with a tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is lots of earthy and spicy hops, along with some roast, but the hops dominate. Flavor is earthy and spicy hops, chocolate, and some roast and a little booze. Has a touch of bitterness as well. The hops profile make this very interesting. I prefer a more stout-like imperial stout, but this still manages to be quite good.

Chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, creamy and a bit smokey. Everything you want in a RIS. Nose has a noticeable hop presence.

Pours a dark brown with light tan head. Nose of chocolate and booze. Taste of some chocolate, some smokiness and booze. A bit too much on the smokey and alcohol taste for me. Good, but not more.
