This beer gives me something to strive for. The closest thing to perfection I have yet to find from a RIS. Pours a beautiful dark black with a dark tan head. wonderful chocolate and oatmeal aromas. The first taste is an experience all it’s own. Truelly heaven. This is the necter of the gods. So far, my favorite RIS.

0.65 l bottle from 'Bierkompass', 2014 vintage I guess, cellared for three years. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, brown head. Sweetish-malty, quite roasty, a little fruity and a bit umami aroma of dark chocolate, licorice, coffee, some dark fruits and traces of soy sauce. Quite sweet, malty, also quite roasty, moderately bitter, a bit umami and a little fruity taste of lots of dark chocolate and licorice, accompanied by coffee, some hazelnut, traces of soy sauce and a touch of dark fruits, followed by a long, rather roasty-bitter, earthy, slightly dry and moderately resiny finish. Medium to full body, smooth, creamy and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Lovely sipper, intense and harmonic like a liquid praline, very saturating.

Bottle 0,75l. Absolutely black color, no reflections. No foam. Petroleum consistency- just amazing! Aromas of truffles, coffee, chocolade.Taste alike. Huge amount of coffee. Super smoooth, low carbonated. Taste like matured in oak barrels. Very very good. //Butelka 0,75l. Barwa czarna, naftowa, smolista. Bez pianki. Konsystencja oleista. Nalewa się jak ropa-superowo. W zapachu trufle, kawa, czekolada. W smaku wszystko jak powyżej ze wskazaniem na kawę. Bardzo gladkie. Nisko gazowane. Świetnie ułożone, bardzo gładkie. Nienachalnie słodkie. Smakuje jakby leżakowało w wysokoprocentowych beczkach. Bardzo bardzo dobre.

0.75 bottle @ Sztamfer
Black with a small, tanned head. Very deep aroma of chocolate, cocoa, and wood - amazing despite small complexity. Chocolate, wood, prunes, fruits, vanilla, marzipan. Full, thick, average. Finish is medium long and sweet. Overall the beer does not amaze with insane complexity, but it is nonetheless terrific.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 Fra flaske. Kul sort med flot brunt skum. Kaffe og brændt malt i næsen. Utrolig smooth, tilpas bitter!

65 cl bottle served in snifter. Poured black with one finger mocha tan head. Aroma: Chocolate, vanilla, roasted nuts, coffee, vanilla, pipe tobacco smoke. Taste: dark Chocolate, roasted espresso beans, vanilla, licorice, dark fruit, umami/soy sauce, roasted bitterness, nuts, dark fruit, dates, raisins, caramel/fudge, whole wheat bread, marzipan. Excellent syrupy and chewy mouthfeel, almost like drinking a milkshake. Full body with a super ROASTED bittersweet finish. A real monster of an Imperial stout, it's almost scary...

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu snifteriin paksuna ja sysimustana, tiiviillä sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on vahvaa lakritsia ja salmiakkia, soijamaisuutta, tummaa hedelmää/luumua sekä hennosti paahdetta, pureksittavaa maltaisuutta ja liköörimäisyyttä. Upea tuoksu. Maussa iskee ensimmäisenä salmiakki, jota seuraa soija sekä kahvinen paahde. Kevyemmin on tummia hedelmiä myös mukana, mutta hyvin hennosti. Lopussa maltaisuus tuntuu myös. Suutuntuma on alkuun öljyinen, mutta terävä humalointi tekee lopusta hyökkäävän ja kevyemmän. Loistavat elementit, juuri sellaiset, joista itse IS:ssä pidän, pl. turhan vahva katkero, joka ei mielestäni sovi ollenkaan vahvoihin stouteihin, vaan vie täyteläisyyttä. Aivan maailmsnluokan olut kuitenkin.
