fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Black pour with a a tall, creamy almond brown head that has great retention. Aroma of roast, smoke, chocolate, dark roast coffee, burnt sugar, spice, earth, pie spice, toffee, roasted nuts and pine and spicy hops. Flavor is full of spice, chocolate, coffee, roast and burnt toasted bread up front, then some pine, burnt citrus, toast, earthy wood, hints of fruit and maybe a tiny vegetal note. Heavy body, creamy, to slick entry, moderate, somewhat sharp carbonation, slick and dry, slightly astringent finish. The finish leaves something to be desired in the taste and palate, but it is pretty nice leading up to that.

eljebi (62) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 24, 2016
Negra, intensa y poderosa. Notas a chocolate negro, café, frutas maduras y vainilla, casi notando madera y cuero. Receta muy sólida, con un final amargo y levemente lupulado y carácter vinoso.

Well crafted, well rounded session Reichsstout…
