COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

rumore (758) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 8, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours pitch black worth limited brownish foam. Aroma is "wow": toffee, caramel, coffee, licorice, hazelnut, and probably much more. Body is dense and sticky, plus some enjoyable carbonation. Even a bit of astringency. Taste is equally nice: some marked sweetness, soon equaled by some bitterness. Finish is long and keeping that nice mix of sweetness and bitterness.

Huge malt hitter with a well-hidden massive ABV. Evil Twin just gets it done! There is no doubt they have become the go-to for huge ass stouts. Serving: out of a damn pint can!

MelvinKalksma (1719) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, caramel, molasses, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, chocolate and molasses; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Loads of molasses and roasted malts. Extreme flavour at both sides of the spectrum. The aroma could have been stronger and the flavour misses a bit in the middle. Overall a very great beer.

4.2
BlazerT (1248) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with moderate, aggressive, thick, light brown head. Good head retention and moderate lacing. Moderate to high roasted malty notes - roasted, caramel, carmelish. Also some dried fruits, toffee, muscavado. Taste is moderate sweet and moderately bitter - quite long and definitely increases thru the degustation. Medium to full body, thick and oily texture, soft to average carbonation, finish is bitter, roasted, chocolate. In overall really good brew, balanced, rather concentrated on roasted malts, not super sweet. This is how the solid RIS looks like.

4.7
