500ml bottle (RBESG2017 Grand Tasting) (5:4-:5:3:10=2.7-)Rune (13353) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2017
Dark, basically black, but the head’s very brief. Sweet sticky aroma, some alcohol clear. Slick palate. Roasty oily taste. Roasty finish. Low drinkability, and not even much sippability.
500ml bottle, many thanks to Skinnyviking. Tight espresso head over a jet black body. Clingy lacing on the glass. Inviting aroma of roasted malt with dark chocolate notes. Solid taste profile of roasted malts with impact of dark chocolate, ash, and caramel added by a bite of raisin. Coffee hint to a long-lived, warming, mid-sweet malty ending. Full bodied. Lovely.

Aromat dość standardowy, jak za standard weźmiemy praliny, lekką paloność, likier czekoladowy, espresso. W smaku intensywniej. Jest trochę owoców, odrobina paloności, dużo likieru czekoladowego i pralin, troszkę kawy, suszonych owoców. Długi aftertaste. Super RIS, jak na parametry - mega pijalny i ułożony.

50cl bottle from El Irlandés. Pours a dark and viscous black with brown bubbles and a small but lasting head. Aroma is intensely (and insanely) malty with some dark herbal hops in the style of Jägermeister/Unicum. Pure coffee, espresso, ristretto with loads of cacao, licorice, wood/vanilla and some Port Wine. Taste is sweet and roasty with that bitter end that gives your throat a run for its money. Main flavors continue to be the roasted grains, roasted dark bread, Turkish coffee and cacao. Huge body, thick mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Warming effect. Nice, in-your-face Imperial Stout.
