neongolden (1860) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2017
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget/tap @ MBCC 2017) Pitch black pour with a tiny fizzy head that dissipates instantly without lace. Aroma of proper 80%+ dark chocolate, vanilla, powdered sugar, cakey malt, moderate roast. Flavour is creamy smooth mix of milk and dark chocolate, vanilla, dark caramel, cream, cake, a little dark fruit, powdery, slightly ashy roast, hint of herbal hops, relatively sweet overall with some drying cacao back end. Tap version was both richer in chocolate and slightly more balanced with cacao and roast than the bottle. Medium-full body, smooth soft carbonation, hint of alcohol in bottle. On the whole, I preferred the tap version for being richer and better balanced, the bottle is a nice dessert stout but the tap was a great stout overall.

Alebarasi (168) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - DEC 10, 2017
Dark brown/black color with a finger high dark brown fizzy head. Fairly full body, low carbonation, no lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, ripe fruits, caramel, cognac, cream liquor, vanilla, licorice, cinnamon and roasted malts. Sweet taste of chocolate, coffee, caramel, ripe and dried fruits, salmiak, brown sugar, marshmallow, malts and savory essences. Oily texture, right amount of alcohol warmth, smooth overall. Fantastic!

Pite z tapa w Beerlovers Bar w Antwerpii. Nie jestem fanem RISów, ale to mnie wyrwało z butów. Świetny aromat, bardzo intensywny, ładna czekolada, nienarzucająca się kawa. Do tego lekko czuć śliwki i wanilię. W smaku bardzo przyjemnie, słodko, czuć tę czekoladkę. Alkohol jest świetnie ukryty, goryczka nie przeszkadza. Mega piwo.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2017 Doft av choklad och soja. Mörk och fyllig, litet brunt tjockt skum. Smak av choklad, vanilj och söta udda toner från martinifat? Tjock munkänsla, bra öl.

ABS (1114) - Stokke, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2017
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Tønsberg. Pours dark brown. No head. Vanilla, milk, brownies, chocolate. Very, very sweet. Thick body, very oily. Soft to medium carbonation. Good. Maybe too sweet, like a dessert, but way too much.

Lilja (3541) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2017
Flaska från SB. Tusen tack Samuel214. Svart med litet brunbeiget försvinnande skum. Massiv chokladig arom med massor av kladdkakssmet, vanilj, kakao. Stor, kladdig kropp. Ganska sött i smaken med chokladmjölk, vanilj, mörka bär och kakaobönor. Även något fruktiga inslag. Fina, bittra toner av mörk chokad och kakaobönor. Mycket bra!
