Big, bad RIS. On draft at Angel's Trumpet Ale House. Jet black, with dark brown head which sticks around for a bit. Bug malt taste, heavy mouthfeel, not very big on hops though. An incredible RIS in every regard though.

God duft av kaffe, lakris og sjokolade med en anelse bek i duften. Dyp sort farge. Ring av brunt skum langs kant. Noe tørr fruktig litt syrlig smak. Spesielt da denne smaker så totalt forskjellig fra duften, men nydelig.

Bottle from Iron Abbey. Ink black with darkest head I’ve ever seen. Rich malt nose and hint of roast and cocoa. Roast is most prominent but malt is there to prop up burnt malt. Hops play second fiddle. Alcohol burn builds as this warms. One to sit back in front of a fire, with a good book or good friend and enjoy. Bring 2.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich roast, toast, wood, salted caramel, tangy dark fruits and cocoa. The taste is rich roasty, toast, tangy dark fruits, earth, white grape, jammy fruits and sherbet with a dry finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Interesting. Pretty tangy, but tasty enough.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted malty, chocolate, alcohol and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark roasted sweet malt and wood alcohol flavor with medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Strong complex beer.

500 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small tan head. The aroma and flavor have roast, dark fruit, big licorice, anis, wood, alcohol, some berry notes. This is a bit strange and not as good as the base.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, at Haand Festival. A black one, topped by a dense, brown, finger-thick head. Chocolate, cocoa, peat, old wood, roasted malts tending towards burnt, and a touch of something making me think there will be acidity in the flavor. There’s some, but just a little bit, keeping the peated and roasted malts company. Chocolate and cocoa too, and a little oak hint. Full-bodied, quite dry, but with some sweetness left. Nice carbonation too. A beer to enjoy relaxing in your favorite chair. 130524
