3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. 4/8/13. Pours oily and dark as night with a thin yet somewhat resilient brown head. Aroma is vanilla, banana, candi, floral, grass, wood, roasty, nutty. Taste is boozey, chocolate (truffles), lots of dark fruit, berries, spicy, nice bitterness; dark chocolate finish. Well-balanced. Nice lacing. Mouth feel is thick and creamy; coating. Medium-low carbonation; works. Really nice; canít complain too much about any element in particular. What struck me most was the aroma. This beer smells amazing. Not to take anything away from the taste, appearance, etc. The aroma was my favorite experience here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 cl. bottle @ home. Procured online. Not the biggest fan of the rather tacky label, didnít care to much either about the cap which I didnít even bother keeping. Pours not the darkest of black but black never the less black, little vanish mocha head. Nose is alcohol and bitter coffee grounds, light chocolate and chocolate milk, touch paint thinner. Taste is chocolate truffles, cacao powder, light bitterness, grainy, light chocolate milk, light bitter grounds and touch roast bitterness, cheap powdery espresso, strong bakers fare, something odd, almonds, uneatable berries? Bit lighter, almost touch fizzy. Some mixed feelings here, bit odd, not sure if this is supposed to be like this, bit off but not entirely bad either but than again it seems to be hard to make a bad RIS.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with a long-lasting, foamy brown head. Slightly smoky, sweet aroma of chocolate and toast, with a hint of alcohol. Some fruitier aromas come through as it warms. Very toasty flavor with chocolate and sweet malt as well as notes of coffee and a warming alcohol. The mouthfeel is a little thin and watery for an imperial stout. The dry, roasty finish is long and slightly bitter. Overall, I would look for it again.
