Pour is kind of like changing your oil, it’s thick, black, and no head. Coffee grounds, dark chocolate, alcohol are all present. Bold roasty malts and decent hop bitterness on the tongue, with a noticeable alcohol presence along the way. Big, velvety, and finishes with a long dark chocolate and alcohol aftertaste. I bet a year or so would turn this into one of the best RIS out there.
Bottle from Beerdome. Hard roasted aroma with chocolate, dark chocolate, syrup, coffee, some alcohol, and liquorice. Flavour is sticky sweet and quite bitter. Full bodied. Boozy and sweet with syrupy notes, roasty with chocolate, good one. ShivanDragon (4749) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2018

Deep inky black hue under a thin spotty dark tan head. Rich sultry roasty aroma with deep dark cocoa, boozy dark black malt, gentle smoke, and roast black coffee with a hint of charred maple. Big rich flavor that’s dark and black and roasty and toasty with huge bittersweet dark chocolate, gentle earthy coffee, and a lingering roast black malt finish with whispers of maple and char and chocolate sweetness and richness. yoxik75 (474) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 9, 2017
Uzupełnienie profilu notatki.
Piana niewielka drobna zbita beżowa. Kolor czarny. Aromat ciemne słody, palonosć, czekolada, słodko alkoholowo likierowy, rasowy RIS tak właśnie pachnie :). Smak wysoka palonośc, czekolada, kawa, popiół, karmel, owoce. Słodycz wysoka ale nie przytłacza gra z palonymi nutami i wysoką goryczką, daleko w tle pozostałości chmieli amerykańskich i leśno żywiczne nuty. Alkohol wyczuwalny likierowy szlachetny leko rumowy, smaki grają, bogaty, złożony, Bardzo Dobry RIS patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Very old rating found on a loose page while cleaning, possibly from 2010. Notes are from a tasting, possibly RB gathering in Grand Rapids - Black pour with a tan head. Big roast malt aroma. Coffee. Chocolate. The intense flavor is full of roast malt. It's on the sweet side with chocolate and is mellow and smooth for such a big beer. Excellent.
