A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

kolor: czarny aromat: świetny, czekolada, marcepan, bardzo kawowe smak: Super mega czekolada delikatnie gorzka ale też troszkę słodka, w smaku przypomina trochę pomadki malaga, pralinowe, kremowe, dużo wanilii, świetny smak świeżo palonej kawy, bardzo dobre, alkohol zamaskowany w formie likieru, doskonały RIS

Black color. Aroma of bread. Lean mouthfeel, the booze is evident, it has some chocolate but the coffee is dominant; hints of liquorice in the finish. I’d like sweeter and more chocolatey beers.
Good sipper.

Pours pitch black as a night, topped with medium and very lasting beige head. Very lovely chocolate with coffee in the nose, later some decent woody quality, a bit nutty as well. With time strong coffee flows the nose. Just a slight sweetness upfront with some dark fruitiness, very decent coffee character following. Quite lasting aftertaste. Slight alcohol warmth, but still nicely hidden. Creamy body. Smooth texture. Would love it even more if I liked coffee at all.

Flanfl (809) - Lyon, FRANCE - AUG 20, 2017
Dark body, medium brown head. Very complex aroma. Coffee, cocoa, liquorice, dark toffee, vanilla, alcohol fusel. Flavours as complex, coffee, cocoa, multiple layers of roasted malt, dark toffee, vanilla, alcohol. Good bitter roasted malt backbone. Long cocoa and coffee very bitter. The hype is real, it's definitively an outstanding IS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Perfekcyjne piwo, chociaż czuć troszkę alkoholu. Piwo, które absolutnie każdy powinien spróbować!

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Nieprzejrzyscie czarne, minimalna piana, niezbyt wysycone. W smaku czekolada deserowa, kawa, czekoladka wyciągnięta ze świeżo otwartego opakowania. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty i ułożony. W aromacie to co w smaku, a do tego podręcznikowe nuty beczkowe. RIS BA najwyższej klasy, nie odkrywa stylu na nowo, ale pokazuje jak powinien on smakować i wyglądać.

Tried a bottle of this about a month ago, poured almost pitch black with tan head leaving lots of lacing throughout. Wonderful rich aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, slight vanilla and a touch boozy. Taste is medium to strong sweet but not cloyingly so and a nicely offset by a clean bitterness. Thick oily mouthfeel and long lasting finish. Wonderful stuff!

Pours black with a thick white head, nice lacing. The aroma is vanilla, chocolate, cocoa. The taste is similar with more of that barrel vanilla and Bourbon. Pleasant, warming alcohol. Roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee at the end. Full-bodied and very smooth on the palate. Very, very good.

ardeo (454) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle 355 ml from Saveur Biere. Liquide noir, gras, visqueux avec mousse brune assez stable. Nez fort avec odeurs de koffee corsez, licorice, chocolat, un peu de fruit noir et du roti ! Bouche alcoolisez, cremeuse, goutant le koffee, le whisky (bourbon ?), le chocolat, la vanille avec une moyenne amertume. Tres hard et impressionnant ! On en a plein le nez et la bouche ! :-) It is quite impressive. We have full nose and mouth!

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 One of the harder to find beers out there. Always a good score when you do find some.
