Pours black with a thin fully receding mocha head. Notes of chocolate, alcohol, liquorice. Heavy with soft carbonation, and alcoholic. Yum.

Bottle. Pitch black beer with small, creamy, brown head. Aroma of roasted and dark malts, bitter and dark chocolate, light coffee, raisin and licorice. Taste is medium+ sweet and medium bitter, chocolate, raisins, dried cherries and plums, light roast and licorice, light booze. Bitter, roasted finish with notes of dried fruits, chocolate, booze. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Good imperial stout, although not as great as expected.

Pours a dark, rich stout with limited head and high viscosity. Aroma is pure chocolate malt. Taste is chocolate with a delightful finishing sweetness. No bitter aftertaste. No real hint of the heavy alcohol presence. A wonderful sipping beer after a good meal.

Raczej czekolada niż kawa, niestety sos sojowy także, ale w tej gęstej fakturze alkohol ładnie schowany. Bardzo solidny ris w wersji podstawowej. Dobra cena jak na USA.

butelka/kufle i widelce. czarne, oleiste, niewielka, brązowa, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, która szybko redukuje się niemal do zera. aromat wiśni w czekoladzie, cuksy z likierem wiśniowym, czekolada, kakao, szlachetny alkohol. w smaku oleiste, ale nie wyklejające, podbita goryczka przez słody palone, porządny RIS

szczupaczu (160) - Rurzyca, POLAND - OCT 6, 2017
Ocena na podst. notatek i wspomnień. Barwa niemalże czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana niewielka, brunatna. W zapachyu gorzka czekolada, w smaku podobnie plus akcenty wiśniowy i coś jakby sosnowy. Piwo mocno rogrzewające ale akcenty alkoholowe doskonale ukryte. Średniosłodkie, świetnie zbalansowane. Doskonały RIS - ciekaw jestem wersji beczkowej.

B-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Full body, flavor is good but a little strong for me

3.8
puren (1257) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 23, 2017
PREZENTACJA: czarne, niska beżowa piana szybko opada do obrączki, nie zdobi szkła;
AROMAT: czekolada, likier czekoladowy, sos sojowy, cukrowa pianka ;
ODCZUCIE: ciało średnie, nisko nasycone, leciutko kremowe, lekko proszkowe, wykleja podniebienie;
SMAK: słodki - czekolada, kakao, słodki karmel, niska króciutka czekoladowa goryczka;
OGÓLNIE: rzetelne i sympatyczne, ale jednowymiarowe i bez głębi.

thick but not too thick. cocoa earth licorice dark malt from the farm perhaps a bit of rye. beer comes on almost watery and then expands in volume and flavor. i love dark horse stout’s, they are great!
