Bottle 330ml. Black, with tan head and good lacing. Aromat is full of chocolate and sweet liqueur notes, intense and very, very nice. There are also note of dark fruits like dried plum what suggests notes of oxidation. Medium to high, roast bitternes is long, aggresive like should be in RIS, balanced by malty, chocolate body gives very good flavor. Beer is bitter, roasty at the beginning and sweet in aftertaste.

Brown thin head and lacy, dark black body. Sweet, burnt aroma. Big bitter chocolate taste at the start, but bitterness moves to sweetness at the end. Luscious. Up there with the best of the big stouts.
