Bottle thanks to my brother. A pitch black body is topped with a light orange brown head. Lots of molasses and dark chocolate. There is also some prune. The taste is cola ans tobacco. Prunes and smoke in the backend. An ashy finish with hints of anise. Rough with the booze burn.

Its all about chocolate and coffee. (Drank it more often through the years, but never rated it; so now I do). Bottle pours deep black with a beige head, that starts nice but collapses quickly. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee tones. Taste is accordingly: medium sweet, chocolate, dark malts, with light to medium bitter, that develops to a stronger bitterness and coffee in the finish. Very nice; but still: such a strong beer might have even more flavours and complexity. (Would be curious to taste a BA version).

Swietny Ris. Piana bezowa zanikajaca. Aromat lekkiej wanilii -pewnie od platkow debowych. Polecam

imperial_suchy (123) - Rybnik, POLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Kolor bardzo ciemno brązowy, jasnobeżowa piana. W aromacie mleczna czekolada, lekki sos sojowy, kawa, rodzyny, delikatne nuty miodowe. W smaku gorzka kawa, czekolada, delikatnie czuć wanilie i suszone owoce. Oglnie w smaku jest lepiej niż w aromacie, tak klasyczniej.

Bottle. 2009 Vintage; BBE date Dec 2012; Drank Jan 2011 - Opaque Black in colour. Very Malty; roasted/burnt malts, liquorice, espresso coffee, soy sauce, some chocolate, toffee. Rather tarry and salty. Fruity; dried fruits. Hoppy; earthy and spicy hop. Alcohol quite noticeable. Roast liquorice and coffee malty with a pronounced hop bitterness. Dry bitter finish. Very tasty. Liked this a lot. Nice Imperial Stout! (2011-01-29)

Wojo21 (279) - Pelplin, POLAND - JAN 7, 2017
W aromacie kawa, czekolada, intensywnie i bardzo przyjemnie. Barwa ciemno brunatna, prawie czarna, ładna drobnopęcherzykowa, beżowa piana. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie tylko jeszcze bardziej intensywnie, bardzo bogato. Goryczka konkretna, dobry ris.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with an ephemeral tan head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice notes, and some alcohol. Nice.

darbeer75 (759) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Aroma: lots of malt; not much else; Appearance: pitch black with thin off white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: much better than aroma; smooth, chocolatey, boozy, rich; lots of complexity; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: very nice russian stout; would definitely get again if wanting dessert.

(Arendsnest, Amsterdam 29.10.2016) A bit dissapointed. Kind a boring brew, Some roastiness of malts, strong coffee, but kind a dryish-watery aftertaste. Quite unballanced, but not so bad..
