neongolden (758) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours black with a large, fairly dense lingering pale brown head. Aroma has chocolate malt, moderately roasted, slightly woody, sweet cream hints and a bit of an herbal/fruity overtone to it. On the palate, semisweet dark chocolate and cream, light to moderate roast, hints of fruit and an herbal licorice/root beer quality, not very bitter on the finish for the style but still some roast/hops there, lingering chocolate and herbal flavours. Mouthfull is quite full, oily and slightly creamy with soft carb. Not a mindblowing imperial but a very nicely made one, good change from coffee bombs and smooth but not excessively sweet. Good sipper.

DialSquare (3399) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12oz bottle from Savor Pint. Black pour with thin brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, light vanilla, roasty. Tastes are sweet chocolate, caramel with bitter pine and herbal balancing out. Also a little ashy. The texture is strange, but great - slick, oily and tingly. Clean light bitter finish. Excellent.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Pours dark brown with a tan / burnt orange head. The aroma has roasty malt, green apples, licorice, thick rich malt and some fennel. It has a fairly full body with soft gentle carbonation. The flavor has very roasty smooth malt, , much less apple than the aroma, cream, licorice and some some minor sourness. The finish has some chocolate and is a bit astringent.

Butelka 0.33L
Wygląd: Czarne, średnioobfita, ciemnobeżowa, bardzo zwarta, drobnopęcherzykowa piana z jaśniejszym kożuchem,. Bardzo trwała.
Aromat: Intensywny aromat czekolady, orzechów, lukrecji, wanilii, ciemnego pieczywa, wiśni, suszonych śliwek, minimalny alkohol, a po zamieszaniu estrowe - guma balonowa.
Smak: Na początku czereśnie, słodkie i kwaśne zarazem. Palone słody i alkohol w rozwinięciu. Długi finisz melanoidynowy i palony. Goryczka chmielowo-palona. średniointensywna z posmakiem popielistym.
Odczucie: Dużo ciała, niskie wysycenie, faktura kremowo-oleista.
Całość: Dobry RIS ale zapach i wygląda obiecują więcej. Alkohol mógłby się lepiej ułożyć więc może lepiej poleżakować chwile przed piciem.

Flaska från SB. Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Mustig doft med inslag av vin och katrinplommon. Lite spretig i smaken med stickig eftersmak. Blir nog bättre med lagring men ändå riktigt bra.
