Oh this is just my favorite beer. Very big and strong. Lots of roasted malt. Pours black. Almost no foam. Tasty. You can feel the abv but you think its less than it actually is and just notice when you are ordering the next one and see two bartenders. I dont know if it being a 250 cc bottle is a good or bad thing.

(Bottle). Wonderfully pleasant and rich aroma of dark chocolate, dried fruit, barrel aging and brown sugar. The taste is great with flavors of chocolate, fruit, roasted malt and oaked vanilla notes. Warming alcohol in the finish, but maybe a bit too intrusive. An impressive beer!

77ships (3563) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Hopduvel. Very oily pitch-black with only a small mocha film for head. Nose is very thick roasted coffee, molasses, lots of bitter coffee, molasses, substantial roast, black liquorish. Taste is lots of coffee liquor, strong roast, black liquorish, quite roasted, coffee beans, very warming, lingering bitter roast aftertaste. Thick coffee liquor feel to it. Not as stellar as the BA versions and probably more roasted than I prefer my RIS, very outstanding & different never the less. Makes me think a bit of Mikkeller Black with some age on it but this is a far balanced & superior version of that one.

Bamsen78 (2888) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy tan head. Clear aroma of roasted malt, coffee and liquorice. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, chocolate, and coffee, complemented by touches of fruit and pronounced roasty notes. Lingering roasty aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence. Rich body and creamy mouthfeel. Really good.

nimbleprop (4543) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at The Partisan DC. Pours a complete black, thick, with some tight, creamy, brown head. Nose has a nice mix of malt sweetness, some licorice, burnt brown sugar, chocolate, dried fruit there too, raisin, black pepper. Flavors are the same, a bit of umami in there, raisins, dried blueberry, malt, licorice, toast, brown sugar. Full bodied, but dry and drinkable.

With Zach and Brandon watching the USA vs Azerbijan soccer game, pours a rich dark black pour with a small head. Nose is malt , chocolate, dark coffee , black licorice and alcohol. Taste is chocolate, malt, and licorice as well, and heavy and thick on the palate. Finish is moderately long and ends on the same tasting notes. Quaff Score 8 / 10
