4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,375l bottle as gift from Denmark. Beautiful reddish black color, medium, creamy, brown head. Delicious, sweet odor, not offensive, but pleasant. Sweet, malty,
alcoholly and surprisingly hoppy aroma. A lot of interesting flavours in perfect mixture. Itís so complex, that itís difficult to describe. Coffee, chocolate malty flavours at the beginning, followed by herbal, grassy and a bit resiny hops. The alcohol is not hidden, but it doesnít desturb! Itís definitely one of the best beer aroma Iíve ever tasted! Intensive sweet taste with a little bitterness. Full bodied with creamy, oily texture and pleasant carbonation. Long, roasted malty finish with some hoppy flavour too. Itís a fantastic beer. It has a lot of ingredients and they makes the beer this complex and deficious. The harsh roasted malty and hoppy flavours are moderated by the honey and the vanilla. The harmony is perfect between the ingredients. Itís one of the best beer Iíve ever tasted.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A pitch black beer with a small brown head. Intense alcoholic aroma with dark chocolate, toasted coffee, molasses and nuts. Taste is bitter with a strong finish. Reminds me a lot of dark chocolate. Robust and complex. Aftertaste slightly alcoholic, but well balanced considering its high ABV.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (375 ml). Best before 07/12/15, so probably around 4 years old.
Appearance: Pitch black with a medium easy to revive brown head and good lacing.
Aroma: Itís quite boozy but still a lot less than expected. Molasses, figs, plums, roasted malts, fainted coffee, vegetal notes and chocolate.
Taste: Quite sweet and dried fruits forward with molasses, vegetal coffee notes but without much coffee, roasted malts and of course alcohol (boozy but not burning).
Palate: Full body. Moderate carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Warming finish. Lingering dried fruits presence.
Overall: Decent stout and not too boozy considering the abv. Flavorful, but not super complex and certainly not very cohesive.

Disappointing beer. Overly boozy and grape flavored. I don't taste any coffee maybe some slight roasted but flavor. Just a hint. Black with a thin tan head. Bottle pour at home. Gonna be drunk after this bad boy

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013 Tap at Salon piva. Clear dark brown colour. Actually not that impressing. Too fruity, estery, lack of roasted flavours, I do not get them at all. Thus it is poor at being a RIS, but good otherwise. Fruity-estery.
