It’s big and full bodied with lots of roasted malts and balanced with heavy hops to put this imperial in a league of its own.
Previously known as Dark Horse Imperial Stout.

Dark black body, brown head, some lacing. Roast cocoa, malts, lactose, coffee aroma. Taste is rich sweet, dried fruit, anise, cocoa, dry and bitter. Nice imperial stout.

This stout is exactly the way I like it. Full bodied, smooth and loaded with roasted malts and hops. The balance in this beer is incredible. Every flavor has its place without surpressing others. I also like the subtlety of this beer. Excellent!

brunatne przechodzące w czerń z ładną pianą drobnopęcherzykową. W aromacie wanilia, praliny, gorzka czekolada- intensywny (ale też minimalny alko na koniec się pojawia- w sumie nie przeszkadza,a le mogłoby go nie być), w smaku podobnie plus kawa, gorzka czekolada, fajnie skomponowane, lekka goryczka na koniec. Co by nie powiedzieć- klasa- ryje beret, szkoda, że w takiej cenie :).

This poured pitch black with a tan head perfect! The aroma contains some black coffee, licorice, and charcoal. The flavor is bitter but not too much so. It contains some espresso shots, licorice, dark chocolate. This is on the bitter end of the impy stout spectrum but its really amazing. Overall swipe right on this gem!

Kolor czarny, beżowa szybko opadająca piana. W aromacie praliny, wanilia, mleczna czekolada. W smaku gorzka kawa, mleczna czekolada, w tle przewija się rodzyna i sos sojowy. Alkohol ukryty. Bardzo fajny RIS.

No BOD. Pours black. Very little head - less than a finger with a 90 degree pour. Consequently, retention and lacing are also very poor. Light, but otherwise typical, stout nose. A bit of roast, vey faint char and a touch of malt. Medium body with a slightly slick texture. Quite outstanding carbonation / body balance. The middle is quite effervescent and the finish is a finely bubbled rollicking explosive ride. The flavor profile is borderline very good. Complexity is a bit missing in this stout. Flavors are presented well and also are well balanced. Roast with a touch of char float above a very well balanced slightly sweet molasses / caramel base. From the middle on, sweetness peaks and is overcome with a bit of alcohol taste and astringency. The finish is a fade of molasses and alcohol. Dark fruits are missing, except for a brief touch of prune about three quarters through as the alcohol becomes uncovered.

Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dried plums, vanilla. Taste of roast, coffee, chocolate. High bitterness, medium carbonation, high body. Coffee aftertaste. Great one.
