Now this is what I am talking about from a RIS. I can’t tell you how many times I am let down. Too often I feel like a 18 year old college virgin at his first frat party getting frisky with a chick only to reach down her pants and come up with a handfull. This one was creamy smooth, wonderful roasted malts, caramel, dark dried fruits, coffee, chocolate, the whole boat. Flavor came together so nicely, exactly what I was hoping for so many other times with highly rated RIS (I’m talking to you DL). This was the wonderful flavors without the cloying sweetness. Thanks Hoppin’ Frog!

Kolsvart tjock vätska med mellanstort mörkbrunt skum. Doftar massor med kaffe och choklad! Smaken är fyllig med kaffe, choklad, vanilj och väldigt rostat! Mycket bra öl! !

Bottle with Martin ahead of BOX’s Brazilian Birthday Bonanza. I remember drinking one of these with Benh some time ago also. Pure tidy so it is. Pours oily Black with an inspiring Brown head. Aroma is boozy chocolate and roasty coffee. Rich flavour with a weighty, robust body. Chocolatey warmth. It’s a real beaut. Drank this one immediately after the Bourbon County Stout. I reckon BCS pips it. Only just though...

Cerveza negra, muy negra. Me huele a tabaco. Sabor muy complejo, miel de caña, toffee, especias, hierbas, ron, café. Una maravilla. La botella perfecta para compartir entre dos.

Pours black as night. Aromas of coffee alcohol and roasty malt. Taste is the same minus the coffee. Lots of alcohol flavor for only 9.4%. Good beer but not the best imp stout.
