crossovert (12017) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2011
2010 vintage. It pours a dense, dark black with a nice foamy tan head. Thehead sticks for a nice while. It has a bit of decent lacing. The smell is pretty standard for a RIS. It is clean, not superbly fragrant, but consistent with the style. There is some raisin, dark fruits, cocoa, and coffee The flavor is where you can tell this is a leines product. It isnt bad but it is inferior to the standard of the style. It has a lot of components: a nice bitterness, coffee, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, a surprising hppiness, and a hint of roastiness, but it doesnt mesh as well as it could. There is a flavor sticking out that is just unnatural. The mouthfeel is pretty full-bodied, perhaps a bit excessive carbonation however. The alcohol isnt completely hidden. It has a bit of a cloying sweetness. It is a nice attempt by a macro brewery, but there is still room for improvement. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-10-2010 23:21:11

Sammy (11655) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2008
I am pleased that Prince Murray Swine recommended and sent this. A classic RIS and they nailed the style. Big bold bitter black and a full coffee. Full mouthfeel. Coffee in, chocolate coating but not over on the chocolate as per the new wave.

rosenbergh (11159) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
12 oz bottle. 2012 vintage. (Rileys) Madison, WI.
Pitch black colour with a medium size foamy light brown head. Roasted malt, biscuit, toffee, tiramis, mild hops and mild berries in an enjoyable and smooth aroma. The flavour is much edgier. Hoppy bitterness, berries, roasted malt and coffee in the flavour. Very strong. Warms nicely. My girlfriend insisted me to buy this one. I dont blame her.

"another courtesy of pfoxyjohn. a big boozy vinous sweet ass stout. went great with dessert. not sticky, but very chocolatey and rum soaked raisin sweet. little hop presence, or roasted presence. tasty, but a bit too boozy and a one trick pony. still easily the best ive had from Leine."
