Temptation (257) - - JAN 17, 2013
Black as a crow wing, brown head, foamy and creamy, good. Perfect and dense lace. Yeasts aroma, almost like yogurt or cream. Lactic touch in mouth, together with black coffee and burnt malts, maybe a little bit of honey. Excellent.

Psytron (2500) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2017
No smell. Cola colour, extreme brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, red berries, some oak, some alcohol. *Very* light body for this strength. Dry palate, light texture, rather flat carbon. Very bitter with some sweetness.

Pours a pitch black color with a huge tan-colored head with low retention. Aroma has cocoa, caramel, toffee and roasted malts. Moderately light body due to carbonation. Taste follows the nose, roasted malts, cocoa, slightly coffee, brown sugar, caramel and slightly smoke.

Thanks Sandi! Almost pitch black, very dark brown body, with a dark tan head, brownish. Chocolate and caramel in the aroma, no, actually cocoa with caramel. Sweetish maltiness, nice and clean. Full taste, chocolate, but not that "dark", interesting fruity touch (green fruit?) on a solid maltiness. Well hidden ABV. Interesting. A very good RIS, but not the best one around.

orbit (224) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2017
Very good stout this one! Definitely tastes like whiskey and smokey peaty side of stouts, not very sweet but savory. Not overwhelming but rather sober and straightforward in tastes.

VictorX (8) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - OCT 21, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 .330 bottle at home. Appearance - pitch black with a small, beige head. Aroma - the nose is more discrete than what you'd expect; coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, burnt sugar and some hints of vanilla and alcohol. Palate - medium body, not very creamy, a bit oily, low to medium carbonation. Taste - it starts with cocoa, continues with cocoa and finishes with co... coffee; some brown sugar notes and a very discrete hint of smoke; the alcohol, while high, is well hidden. Aftertaste - long, medium bitter, with more cocoa and coffee, balanced, not very dry. Overall - a great, although not very rich IRS; very well balanced, great cocoa/coffee bitterness with some sweetness too.

Hyvin tumma lasissa, mutta ei jätä juuri vaahtoa. Tuoksu yllättävän makea, ehkä aprikoosimainenkin. Maku ei onneksi ole makea, vaan täyteläisen paahteinen, hieman kahvinen ja suklainen. Erittäin hyvä IP.

evannell (1378) - Kraków, POLAND - OCT 5, 2017
Piłem z troszkę inną naklejką. Różnica to 90 EBU zamiast 75. Może jakiś fejk, nie wiem. Kapselek odskoczył nad wyraz leciutko. Piwo przegazowane w cholerę, pieniste, bąbelki duże. Po wybełtaniu dało się pić, nawet smaczne. Kawa, lekki kwasik. Infekcja jak nic. Po rozsmarowaniu piany na plecach taty mojego kolegi czuć żelazo. Oceniam, jak oceniam, bo ktoś wpuścił do sprzedaży taką partię; byłem ostrzegany przed tym, zanim kupiłem.

Skvader (163) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Round, deliciously smooth, some roasted notes and a chocolatey general character. Leaves you wanting more even at its' high abv

L_Lovecraft (716) - - SEP 8, 2017
Good notes of coffee, some smoked notes, very dark brown with a good brown head, medium/full body, average carbonation, taste is quite similar, a bit watery when warmer...quite good afterall.

vinivini (2998) - Gomel, BELARUS - AUG 20, 2017
Opaque. Almost black. Well-lacing beige head. Classic impy on nose & tongue. Powerful. Great balance. Delicious.
