The storm of hops and malt is great! Aroma is dark and rich malt with his of dark fruit and a hand full of raisins. Taste is rich dark roasted malt with hints of chocolate and bitter espresso. The most interesting part is hop hoppy it is...and bitter! Finish is super bitter. Wow. what a storm...

Vestergaard (911) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
Bottle at Burspraks Blind Imperial Stout Tasting. Pours a pitch black, with a lovely brown head. Aroma is boozy with caramel, roasty malts, slight "skumbanan", licorice and "bolcheblanding". Taste is boozy, bitter roasty dry and with a candy sweetness. Something weird, but overall pretty good. Low carb and a sticky body.

magpieken (129) - - JUN 25, 2015
12 Fl Oz bottle. Intense black colour with some ruby highlights. Creamy, tan head which lasted well before reducing to a ring but left some lacing. Restrained aroma of sweet malt, espresso, roasted grain, citrus cocoa powder and charcoal. Light to medium sweetness, medium to high bitterness. Initial sensation of metho then lots of roastiness and then the resinous bitterness kicks in. Medium bodied, creamy texture, noticeable alcohol burn and a very long roasted / bitter finish. Not feeling the love for this one. 6.

77ships (5405) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2015
355 ml. bottle @ home. Obtained in a trade with LouS. Thanks. BBF 28/01/2020. Black, small mocha head. Nose has a surprising amount of hops, pine resin & grapefruit behind the hops there is a layer creamy sweetish milk chocolate & coffee. Taste is bitter pine resin hops, grapefruit peel, bitter citrus peel leading into creamy milk chocolate, coffee, dark chocolate, light toffee, lighter than most RIS but not thin, finish is lingering hop bitterness once again,… Heavy pine resin & grapefruit finish + a strongly dominant trait overall. Very heavily hop forward. Putting it far closer to Black IPA than RIS territory. BIPA avant la letter looking at how far this one dates back. This probably makes way more sense now than it did way back, great stuff.
