4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black in color with full bubbly tan head that quickly dissipates. Smell has some sweet chocolate and a lot of roasted coffee. There is some dark fruits in there as well. It gets a smokiness as it warms up. The taste is awesome! Strong roasted coffee with dark chocolate and charred bitterness. Hints of a fruity sweetness with a flash of alcohol. The finish is similar to the taste of chewing on a roasted coffee bean. Mouthfeel is smooth and low carbonation. Overall this is fantastic and the best RIS Iíve had to date.

Pours a rich black color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is just as advertised with a roasted and toasted malt flavor. The flavor is borderline burnt but it keeps the complexity rather than falling off the ledge. A hint of caramel especially in the initial sip, lending itself to a nice burnt finish.

355ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to nofunsally. Pours black with a firm beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, salty liquorice, charcoal, coffee, caramel, soy sauce and a bit chalky. Flavour is medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium bodied, too thin texture, soft carbonation. Finish is surprisingly bitter and one-dimensional.

Pours dark brown almost black with a creamy tan head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Light carbonation. Slightly oily and creamy texture. Strong lingering roasted flavor. Somewhat bitter finish but not too harsh. Descent Imperial stout but pretty one dimensional flavor. Not bad but not as good as it could be.
