Bottle from OTM. The appearance is a deep creamy oozy black with a small deep brown head. The nose is flowing with whole vanilla beans and vanilla extract with some marshmallow touches. The flavors are rich with vanilla that really powers the profile Roasty malts fill in the edges at the beginning and eventually rounds out the beer. A nice spice from the vanilla bean. Not enough coffee in front for my preference or maybe the roast is on the milder side. Don’t get me wrong it is there. A nice spicy after taste with a good amount of drying. Very tasty beer.

Courtesy of Jaghana. Nez fort de toffee, moka, liqueur de café. Gout de praliné cremeux a la liqueur de café, sucre cuit, alcool avec note boisée. On a l’impression de manger un petit dessert pluot que boire une bičre. Faut aimer, mais c’est vraiment puissant, du Mikkeller a fond!

Bottle 33cl, a dark beer with medium brown head. Nose is on dark chocolate with strange dusty touch. Aroma is on roasted malt, smooth, very sweet floral notes that gives a medicinal touch, vanilla. What to say, it’s not a bad beer but I did not get anything really exiting, very sweet, alcohol well hidden.

Savagesteeler (77) - Warszaw, POLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Aromat cudownie kawowo palony, lekko słodko rumowy, w tle wanilia. Kolor głęboko czarny, piękna piana rubinowo brązowy. W smaku uderza moc, gorączka kawowa, czekolada, połączona z świetna kawa, trochę kwaskowatosci, która podkreśla całość. Piwo niezwykle pijalne, tak właśnie powinien smakować oatmeal z kawą. Świetnie ułożony.

Strong aroma of vanilla, chocolate and toasted malt. Very dark and viscous. Thin head. Heavy, creamy and smooth. This is a dessert beer. Vanilla and sweet with dark chocolate and roasted coffee with a nice bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours a black body with a beige head. Low carbonation. Explodes with heavy notes of roasted malt and vanilla, with notes of coffee and dark chocolate on the side.

W Aromacie glownie wanilia z czekoladą gdzieś w tle troche kawy i palonosci. Podobnie w smaku, również tu wanilia gra pierwszoplanową role i robi to doskonale. Świetny ris

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana średniej wysokości, drobna, trwała.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Zapach dość słodki. Wrażenie potęgowane jest przez wanilię. Czuć łagodny zapach szlachetnej, świeżo zmielonej kawy. Wyczuwalne są także wyraźne nuty beczkowe. W tle kakao, czekolada.
SMAK: Sprawia wrażenie słodkiego, ale to tylko pozory. Po chwili czujemy uderzenie kawy, a wysoka zawartość alkoholu tylko potęguje te doznania. Posmak lekko pikantny od alkoholu. Obecne są nuty waniliowe. Goryczka wysoka, krótka. Gęste i oleiste.
OGÓLNIE: Absolutna czołówka wśród RIS-ów, które miałem już wcześniej przyjemność degustować.

Purchased MLB All Star Week in Cincinnati, Kentucky (haha) and King Food Chu Amerasia. Enjoyed August 18, 2015 in a Mad Elf tulip/snifter. Look - Oily black with a finger or more of dark tan head. It was slow to form and slow to dissipate. Very fine bubbles. Eventually just a ring sits around the edge. Medium bubbles. Blotchy lacing. Not much else I’d ask from this high abv stout. Smell - Chocolate, powdered. Roast malt. Vanilla. Coffee. Oats. Booze. Taste - Boozy. Chocolate. Vanilla. Oats. Bitter. Feel - Creamy. Not overly carbonated. Medium to heavy. Bitterness does rip at the tongue and alcohol warms the chest. Overall - Not quite what I was hoping but as the review shows, a good one. Smell doesn’t quite translate to taste.
