3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is dark fruit and bourbon. Taste starts with dark fruit and molasses, fading to chocolate and roasted malt. Palate is thick and sticky. This is a big one but it's got the flavor to back it up.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Hellbilly. Pitch black oily pour, light brown head and a great aroma of roasted coffee and bitter chocolate. Flavor is slightly smokey roasted coffee, bitter dry chocolate and very boozy/hops on the finish. Decent, would like to get another bottle to age.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Jet black pour with a nice creamy dark tan head. Coffee, roast, plum, alcohol, and burnt toast in the aroma. Flavor is very coffee driven, slight bitter chocolate, burnt malty bitterness, liquorice, and a roasty dry finish. Medium to thicker body with tight carbonation. Nicely dry, roasty, and doesn’t near the sweetness as others. Good stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge thanks to wasatch for this one, 22oz bottle poured into a tulip.
First off, this is a truly gorgeous looking beer in the glass. Completely pitch black with a frothy mocha head that showing exceptional retention and sheets of lacing.
The aroma is huge and roasty - tons of heavily toasted dark malts, cocoa and espresso. There is also some sweet dark fruits and molasses fighting to get out of the burnt malts.
The taste is just as massive. it’s got dark chocolate, molasses, espresso and most prominently, toasted black malts which really anchor this thing. The finish is almost smoky with some charred wood in addition to licorice. Whoa, big.
The mouthfeel is pretty full and thick with a strong enough carbonation to keep it from getting too syrupy.
I have to say this one blew me away. This is one of the best stright-up RISs I’ve had in recent memory. Complex, full-bodied yet still oddly drinkable. Wonderful.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep black pour with a small creamy head. Rich aroma of roasted malt and coffee, dark chocolate and molasses. Flavor is roasty and nicely balanced, definitely not too sweet. Creamy on the palate. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark brown almost black with tan colored head. A lot of roast on the nose, some raw cocoa as well and just a hint of wood, oak; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more roast and warmth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
[500ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Booze on the nose. Chocolate on the flavour. Then booze. Some sweet woodyness. Pretty good, but plenty of alcohol there. Good chocolate edge to the finish

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2011 Black as night and rich as all hell. A decent head reduces to lace. Smells of roasted sweet whale blubber. Thick as molasses with a high roast and balanced sweetness. The finish lingers with flavors reminiscent of milk chocolate.
