kraddel (8733) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2017
Brewing season 2012-2013. I might have left this too long in the cellar, and should be sampeling this again when found fresh. Pours black, small , yet stable dark brown head. Smell is still mild cocoa, some dark malts. Taste is very full. Intense dark malts. very mild cocoa finish. full mouthfeel, low carbo. Not much sign of age ( some, but not much ) and definetly not over the top yet. Thats a relief (and a bit of a surprise ) a very small hint of bitterness trough the roast. Might have had more chocolate fresh ( i’d think, i’d hope ) but nevertheless, this is a really nice impy. no boozyness at all. Very nice! Edit : at the end of the bottle ( in the sediment) there is far more cocoa, still. keeping the score, just wanted to note it :) djoeye (5072) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2017

1 finger, light tan head.
Deep, dark dark brown coloured beer.
Aroma is full of dark fruits. Raisins, dates, along with coffee, liquorice and a red berry/ vinous fruitiness to it. Hint of dark chocolate at the end.
Taste is very oaty with prominent coffee and dark, bitter chocolate.
Hints of the dark fruits at the back. Some sort of weird off-taste is putting me off.
Thin and light for the ABV.
Overall, nothing to write home about. Had heard such good things about this one but if feels more like a light Porter than a homage to the lovely RIS due to the thinness and the short taste. I have another bottle and I hope there was just something wrong with this one. HairRocker (1) - Suwanee, Alabama, USA - FEB 5, 2017 does not count
I got this beer on a recommendation. It’s really good, and tasted great with a good burger and salad. Oh, and with 10% alcohol packs a nice punch. cglans (303) - - FEB 3, 2017

Malts, chocolate and roasty hints of coffee. Velvety smooth, slightly syrupy, satisfying medium body. Surprising amount of bitterness balance the sweetness well. Delicious!

This is top notch. Lots of chocolate nose and chocolate flavor. Bitterness builds huge if not drinker slowly. Very slow head. Wow nice ris.
