4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 Bottle from Andronico’s Market. Pours beautiful pitch black like motor oil. Feels dense and thick, pouring with some lacing and minimal head. Aroma is largely roasted malt, almost burnt, with notes of espresso. Palate is full and oily, a bit creamy, with light carbonation and bitter hops. Espresso and bitter dark chocolate that didn’t show up in the nose are assertive in the flavor, with a subtle sense of the high alcohol content in the finish that comes around rather quickly. Intense and complex while it lasts. Quite enjoyable.
Boozy, caramelly, flat, disappointing. Comparing to the Cycle imperial stouts tried at the same panel - woeful. TET (3323) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2017

Good and balanced. alteregoo (1865) - 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.

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 (1260) - 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. beerplace (2392) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2017
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. Ferris (17762) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2017
