UPDATED: MAR 17, 2015 It’s aroma refers to coffee and dark chocolate. But most of all I was extremely surprised by it’s brandy-like aftertaste which is nothing less than a true treat. Someone put a lot of love into this beer.

W aromacie likierowe, mało czekolady, sporo buchającego alkoholu, niezbyt stylowo, ale nie przerażająco słabo. W smaku mało ciała, lekko czekoladowe, bardziej karmelowe, alkohol wyczuwalny. Nieprzekonujące.

Diabobale (370) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - FEB 4, 2016
E’ di colore ebano scuro, con riflessi aranciati tendenti al rubino, con un bellissimo cappello di schiuma avorio, abbondante, molto fine, pannosa e dall’ottima persistenza. Al naso note tipiche di caffč tostato e cioccolato fondente, con una buona presenza alcolica. In bocca ha un corpo medio, morbido, con carbonazione bassa e bollicine molto fini. Al palato tanto caramello, melassa e chicchi di caffč, per poi virare durante il finale verso un buon amaro erbaceo. Non vanta certo di una buona pulizia e la bevuta diventa pesante per l’alcol abbastanza presente.

100 ml sample. Dark brown, big beige head. Spicy „Belgian” aroma - green pepper, very light roast. The taste is light sweet, masked by a brutal burnt bitterness. Not much chocolate etc. Pretty harsh. (backlog 17-JAN-2016)

Maris (1268) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 26/1/2016. Pours a deep brown with a small to medium head. Has an unusual nose for an impy with Belgian yeast and spice most prominent. In the mouth, it’s a little more standard, with lots of chocolate, cocoa and fudge, some mild spiciness and medium roasty bitterness. The texture is quite creamy and the carbonation soft. While not the most sophisticated or complex brew, it’s still pretty tasty, bold and rather enjoyable.

Piana obfita, koloru ecru, trwała i ładnie zdobiąca szkło. Barwa ciemno rubinowo brązowa, wydaje się klarowna. Aromat z jednej strony czekoladowy, karmelowy, z drugiej owocowy - głównie czarne i suszone owoce, odrobina dzikich nutek, Porto, Sherry - ogólnie przypomina to Quadrupla. W smaku również RIS miesza się z Quadruplem czy Belgian Strong Dark Ale - jest trochę słodyczy, zarówno czekoladowej jak i rodzynkowej, jest cierpkość i szorstkość popiołowo głogowa, jest delikatna kwaskowość czerwonego wina, taniny beczkowe, w tle wanilia, ciemne winogrono a nawet tytoń. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, alkoholowo przyprawowa. Nagazowanie średnie. W odczuciu piwo nie jest może gęste czy oleiste, ale treściwe, bogate.
Ciekawy RIS, jednoznacznie pozwalający rozpoznać jego belgijskie pochodzenie. Wzorcowa piana nie idzie tu w parze ze zbyt jasną barwą, aromat i smak również przywodzą na myśl blend stoutu z mocnym, ciemnym piwem trapistów. Dla mnie jest to jednak bardzo fajny mix.

Piwo trzy i pół miesiąca po terminie przydatności do spożycia.

Eastwood (102) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 18, 2016
Tomada en el Kraken. Buena cerveza belga. No me parece una imp stout, ya que se nota que es belga en su regaliz , pese al chocolate y mayor amargor. Esta bien para el amante de las clasicas belgas potentes, pero no para el que espera una imperial Stout al uso

ON 33 cl bottle. PItch black color, good foam. HIgh aroma intensity; leather, roasty, licorice, coffee and some dark choclate with a nice yeast influence. Full body & high complexity. Just a little immediate sweetness, good bitterness balances very well. Very enjoyable
