A massive Imperial Stout. The first IS brewed by Revelation Cat. Aged for nearly a year in steel tanks and fermented out to 14% Bottled in 2012 in limited quantity and released slowly throughout the following years. On the bottle: "Black Knight’s sure you’d love to know. But you’re just gonna have to find out ’Cause you’re not gonna get the recipe on the freakin’ bottle And beware of the 14% He’s gonna mess with you" "Keep it Cool and age this beer"

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle. An opaque black beer, with a small, frothy, mostly diminishing brown head. The aroma is heavily malty (black chocolate, cocoa, molasses, roasted grain, coffee), with notes of licorice, vanilla, berries, plums, figs, alcohol, etc. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Full body, thick/sticky/creamy texture, soft carbonation, very long finish with light to moderate bitterness, moderately alcoholic. A huge beer... Immense nose, complex, intense, deep, etc. And it also looks great. Sweet, but it doesn’t get cloying, I finished the entire bottle myself. A little more bitterness would furtherly help it to become perfect. However perfection is near... Great job.

Bottle at home. Pours an opaque black with a small light brown head. Sweet with lots of coacoa aromas. Also some aromas of roasted malts, port and dark chocolate. Full bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Very soft carbonation. Hides the 14% really well. Sweet and chocolaty finish. Thanks Alex!!!

Theydon_Bois (12567) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle share at Ma Che, Roma, 09/02/13, big thanks to Luca (Mortlach). Pitch black with a thin tan head that departs edgeward. Nose is dark malts, liqourice, molasses, dark toffee, chocolate. Taste comprises dark roast malt, molasses, light smoke, dark chocolate, soy sauce, booze. Full bodied, thick and viscous, fine carbonation, sweet and roasted finish. A more than decent RIS - perhaps a little too boozey for my liking but well balanced for a 14% jobbie!

KyotoLefty (7428) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle from Alex. Black like soy sauce and just about flat. Nose is vanilla, chocolate, berries, light soy. Lots of sweet vanilla in the flavor, with the other notes mentioned, plus raisins, figs. Very complex, fruity, and spicy. Alcohol is noticeable but not at all huge. Smooth and creamy. Very interesting and original big stout.

Borresteijn (5312) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2013
50cl Bottle from the man himself, thanks a lot Alex! Pitch black colour, thin dense brown head. Aroma is quite sweet, rhum beans, cocoa beans, toasted coconut, vanilla, bon-bons, pipe tobacco, cognac. Flavour is very sweet but also very well-balanced so it doesn’t become cloying, hard roasted malts, pipe tobacco, bon-bons, chocolate, cognac, hint of chili-burn, slight alcohol heat, vanilla, cocoa beans, coconut, light spicy bitter finish. Full-bodied, slick. Very good, a nice dessert beer, and a better version of the overly sweet highly-rated American RIS’s imo.
