jookos (2625) - FINLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle b761. Black, thickish, nonexistent head. Big chocolate roasted malt aroma. Feels soft, vanilla. A bit of licorice, molasses. Very ’normal’ imperial stout like. Body is full, soft, thick. Long. Roasted malts, a bit of espresso. Some wooden flavours. Quite nice IS/IP. I’m not sure what the rye contributed to the flavour palette, but I guess it’s possible to sense some ryeness when you know about it. Otherwise a very nice black drink. Reminds me of Divide’s products.

RexTalionis (2616) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Draught at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate and some rye in aroma. Slight tones of some milk chocolate in aroma as well. Flavor is mostly roasted coffee and roasted malt. Feels very smooth. Slightly hoppy in aftertaste. The ABV is well hidden. Filling and quite heavy to drink. Some licorice also in aftertaste.

Bottle. Black oily beer, came slowly out of the bottle, beautiful. Smooth aroma of cacao, malt and vanilla. Taste is soft and velvet, with notes of cacao, some bitter licorice, rye and a coffee finish. Oily mouthfeel, thick body. Nice dry and bitter aftertaste. Very good.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2382) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2013
9% bottle from Rakuten, roughly 1000 yen. A dark reddish black pour with a good finger of a tan head. A strong boozy, malty chocolate aroma wafts from the glass. The taste is full bodied, smooth, rich chocolate, some roastiness, a fair amount of booze & a kind of tangy quality reminiscent of a port or other slow drinking aperitif. Nice stuff though I am not getting the kind of spiciness I usually associate with rye...  A touch of smoke after warming, very pleasant.
