oobawa (1196) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Rich, deep chocolate nose with a boozy backbone. Pours a thick, deep black with a modest brown head and minor lacing. Taste hits all the RIS sweet spots: unsweetened cocoa, dark chocolate, anise, espresso, dried black cherries, rich smoky undertones. Yet the real star is the texture, silky smooth and light despite the formidable 9.4% ABV. Drinks like a dream, even if it grows a tad sweet and boozy as it warms. and the semisweet finish grows clingy and bitter as it fades, a nice balance to the growing chocolate indulgence.

langeveld12 (538) - NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2017
Delicious full bodied creamy black beer. Caramel, licorice, coffee, chocolate, roast, red fruits, sweet fruits. Nice balance between bitterness from the roast and hops and sweetness from the malts. Not a very subtle beer, more in-your-face but very good in that sense. Brilliant!

willisread (3247) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Tap at CYO. Pours a pitch black with a fluffy beige head that dissipates quickly. Roasted coffee, cocoa powder and blueberry-like cacao nib notes dominate the nose. Creamy on the palate like a thick godiva dark cacao milkshake would be. Lingering cocoa powder bitterness with light coffee. Really creamy and coating. Great stuff.

Jaceks21 (210) - Zgorzelec, POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Mocno kawowy zarówno w aromacie jak i smaku. Piana gruba, która jednak szybko opada. Czarne i nieprzejrzyste. Odpowiednio palone, czekoladowo i kawowo. Odrobina kakao i wanilii również się pojawia. Bardzo pijalne jak na imperialnego stouta, alkohol ledwie wyczuwalny. Bardzo dobre piwo.
