tdtm82 (668) - Essex, - APR 16, 2011
Bottle; from Brwery, thanks Evin! Opaque black colour, mocha lacing diminishes, aroma is smoke, chocolate, light peat, fudge, some citrus hops. Taste is superb. Stunning dark Belgian chocolate, like real premium stuff, smoke, some leather, some peat, fudge, toffee, roasted malts, a littel rough on the bitternes, oil ,vanilla, raisins, brown sugar, depth and complexity is stunning, really long drinking and warms up very very nicely. Ken is right, lay this for a year and it woulld be intrigueing. I may do the same. Great work, Evin! Drinkability is there and alcohol is well hidden. Great stuff.

Ragnampiza (215) - ITALY - MAR 26, 2014
330 ml bottle from Ales By Mail, served in a snifter glass. Bottled on 07-10-13 (9.8% ABV) Pitch black, with absolutely no light passing through, and an average, even with an aggressive pour, brown frothy head. On the nose dark fruits, bitter dark chocolate, coffee powder, light alchool. Rich and velvey smooth, moderately bitter with not much sweetness to speak of, more coffee than chocolate in the taste. Tiny bit of astringency and hoppy presence in the aftertaste. Unbelievably easy to drink for the ABV, no trace of booze at all. Soft carbonation, medium to full body, slightly oily texture. Perhaps not a mindblowing RIS, but certainly pleasent and well executed. I wouldn’t mind having access to these kind of beers in 1856 ;-)
