Pours jet black into the snifter with a half inch of dark tan head. Minimal lacing stuck to the glass. Scents of malt, chocolate and coffee. Very complex flavor, hoppy upfront with strong notes of coffee and roasted barley. Finish was somewhat sweet with chocolate, carmel, vanilla and oatmeal. A very interesting, drinkable RIS.

Werckmeister (2285) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 22, 2016
0,66l bottle at a party from trade with lordrakos. Did not find a BB date. black colour, small coffee colored head. smells of licorice, light sherry, spices, earthy notes. nice smell. full body, soft carbonation, oily mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, sherry, spices, earthy notes, some caramel, marzipan, nutty. finishes lightly dry with notes of licorice, marzipan and some sherry notes. good but expected a bit more, has some oxidation notes, so possibly could have been a bit fresher. overall still quite good.

Dla mnie to doskonały imperialny stout. Browar z Ohio proponuje BORIS’a, co jest skrótem od Bodacious Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout. Nie dość że owsiany, to jeszcze wspaniały. Piwo sprawia wrażenie niesamowicie gęstego i oleistego, a pierwsze łyki szybko pokazują, że to nie tylko wrażenie (25,3° Plato). W aromacie walczą ze sobą gorzka czekolada, lukrecja, kakao i suszone owoce. W smaku pojawia się bardzo wydatna paloność, intensywna suszona śliwka, a cały czas nie opuszczała mnie gęsta czekolada. Piwo jest pełne, nisko wysycone i mocno goryczkowe. Jest jednocześnie bardzo złożone, ciekawe, a wraz ze swoją gładkością niesamowicie pijalne.

Dégustée en compagnie de Randy. Le liquide est bien noir et coule plutôt légèrement dans mon verre. En s’y déposant, il y forme une mousse brune bien agréable à regarder avant qu’elle ne s’effondre en quelques secondes. Un stout qui en effet est bien léger, tant au nez qu’en bouche. Présence d’alcool indéniable, de café fort, dr malts chauffés et de chocolat noir. Ces mots peuvent sembler lourds et durs mais l’ensemble est très léger et bien dosé. Délicate amertume en mi-palais alors que le liquide tapisse ma bohche d’une pellicule soyeuse. Plutôt courte sans être sèche, un stout sans prétention qui se boit aisément.

Wow I can see why it’s won awards. Apart from the dry, chocolatey malt in a sweet heavy viscous body that you’d expect what sets this apart for me is the strength of the hops - bitter and fresh, somewhat as in a black IPA.

heman (656) - Tychy, POLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Barwa czarna, piana mało intensywna, szybko redukująca się do obrączki. Aromat zdominowany jest sosem sojowym i nutami palonymi. W tle chmiele. W smaku piwo jest wytrawne, z bardzo wysoką palonością i gorzką kawą. Goryczka wysoka. Alkohol wyczuwalny.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2016 W aromacie sos sojowy i suszone pomidory, jest jednym słowem słabo i wadliwie! W smaku podobnie, sos sojowy męczy, dodatkowo wysoka goryczka, nieco tępa. Jest słabiuteńko!
