3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Pitch black with a half finger of tan head.
Rich smelling. Roasted and burnt malt, chocolate and licorice.
Starts like a milk stout, a little sweet, then quickly turns to burnt, super burnt malt overpowering everything in sight, slight bittering at the end.
Smooth texture, a fair level of carbonation, kind of crisp.
The taste is really bold and in your face burnt malt. That may not be enjoyable to some, but I liked it. This is not a shy beer.
A black beer, a head is creamy, medium and light brown. MAroma has chocolate, coffee, dark and dried fruits with their sweetness, some liquorice. Taste has liquorice, dry roastiness and coffee, some bitterness and overally quite dry, hint of dried fruits. Almost full bodied, not stickyness, smooth. The aroma has taste are slighty different. Good and balanced. alteregoo (1821) - 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.

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 (612) - 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.

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. beerplace (2287) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2017
