4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours all black with a dark khaki, almost brown head that slowly expands into full as the beer settles. Pretty cool. Aroma is potent, and I must say unique. Raisin and alcohol stand out the most, but there is plenty of chocolate, coffee, and licorice in here as well. Moving on to the taste, it is dominated by the darker impressions. This being chocolate and coffee, while the liquor notes are still strong. This one is is full bodied with a thick, oily texture. The aftertaste is heavy and long lasting with chocolate and raisin. The alcohol content hits you quite quickly. It doesn’t hide. For what I’m looking for in this style, this might be close to perfection. I am stingy and I throw 4.5 ratings like they’re manhole covers. But this is worth it. This might be the best stout I’ve ever had.
Czarne z gesta drobna piana, zarowno aromat jak i smak to poezja dla odbiorcy tego dziela. Trudno jest mi opisac slowami to co sie dzieje w tej butelce. Mysle ze wystarczy jak napisze ze to jest naprawde SZTOS!!! Madrid (6) - - JUL 8, 2017 does not count

Bottle from de Fles Winkel. Very dark with Brown head. Smells like boozy chocolate raspberry and play doh. Chocolate, moderate bitterness, with some smooth sweetness. MarcoBasile (415) - DENMARK - JUL 2, 2017
Pours deep deep brown. Looks totally black in the glass. Nicely lacing tan head.
Aroma of caramelized malts, bitter coffee, dark chocolate. Warming alcoholic presence.
Taste is sweet, roasty smooth cappuccino coffee, cocoa nibs, malts and medium to intense charred bitterness in the finish. Lovely balance between sweet and bitter. Warming.
Oily mouthfeel, medium to full body, soft carbonation. tanel025 (125) - ESTONIA - JUL 2, 2017

Had it next to the alesmith speedway which was a little better. This one has more heat and maybe oats.

Dobre piwo, ale niczego nie urywa. Mocno wytrawne i kawowe. Ładna piana, fajnie gęste. Ale ot taki zwykły RIS. Hermod (7841) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2017

Dark fruity, dark chocolate, ashy aroma, wood quite much.
Flavor has dark chocolate, roasted malt, ash, tobacco, wood. Sweet finish, lingering long chocolate finish. Long warming finish. Slow sipper.

Tried on tap for the first time, lives up the the hype. Nothing in this beer is too dominate and every flavor blends well. A fantastic stout that almost seems too simple, but keep drinking and you'll keep finding more in this beer.

Flaska. Svart med ett gulbeigt skum. Dofter av kaffe, choklad och lakrits. Smakinslag av kaffe, choklad, alkohol, aska och rostad malt. Oljig munkänsla, fyllig kropp.
