danbierman (20) - California, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle into my Rodenbach Grand Cru tulip glass. Pours pitch black with a very thin mocha head, no lacing at all. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Tastes of roasted malts, very slight bitterness, big chocolate flavor, slight hints of licorice and coffee on the back. Medium bodied for an Imperial Stout, very creamy finish. Overall a good Imperial Stout, but there are definitely better.

alteregoo (1792) - Kalisz, POLAND - DEC 9, 2017
Beżowa, drobna i obfita piana, ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna barwa. W aromacie klasyka - kakao, praliny, kawa, w tle marcepan. Smak półwytrawny, czekoladowy, melasowy, palony, nieco mleczny, z tytoniową, średnią goryczką. Niskie wysycenie, lekko rozgrzewające ABV. W odbiorz gładkie, aksamitne, choć brakuje troszkę więcej ciała.


Reasumując - klasyczny RIS w bardziej wytrawnej odsłonie, na plus intensywność w ustach i przyjemna faktura, na minus wątłe body i mało słodyczy.

ogivlado (8167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 24, 2017
Bottled 650ml. -from Beergium. Pitch black coloured, medium sized brown head, alcohol and mild chocolate in the nose. Roasted malt, chocolate, noticable alcohol, notes of coffee and wood with some dark fruits and roast in the finish. Decent one.

DonGregorio (581) - POLAND - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle shared at tasting. Dark brown beer with tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, light roast and coffee. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter, milk chocolate, dried fruits, light roasty. Bitter chocolate in the finish. Medium body, soft to average carbonation. OK, but disappointing - thin and not very complex.

pictoman (1232) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2017
Poured from the tap. Near black with tan head. Light roast malt with a certain mild sweetness (sort of licorice-y?) about it. Not completely balanced.

On tap at St. Augustine's during 54 taps Beerthirst event. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and lots of coffee. Taste is similar with some fruity notes, a little bit smokey. Good one.
