Nitro version on draft at HopCat. Very good despite not being a big fan of nitro beers.

KraftowyJakup (123) - POLAND - FEB 11, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2017 Butelka, warka do 18.01.2016. Bardzo ciemny, niemal czarny, prawie nieprzejrzysty, już widać, że nie żałowali palonych słodw. Piana beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, o kremowej konsystencji, obfity lacing. W aromacie lukrecja, kakao, konkretna paloność, marcepan/wanilia na granicy autosugestii. W smaku w kierunku wytrawnym, nadal palone słody, gorzka czekolada (ponad 80% kakao), espresso z mocno palonej arabiki, troszkę słodyczy od lukrecji. Finisz palony z popiołem, goryczka średnio-wysoka, nie przegięta. Piłem to piwo jako drugie, po żytnim piwie z wysokim ekstraktem i tutaj brakowało mi tu trochę ciała. Posmaki długie, ale jak na taki ekstrakt, to nieco wodniste.

gephross100 (675) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2017
12oz bottle from HEB. Pours very dark brown with a light brown head. Cocoa nibs, dates, espresso, anise. Thick body, average carbonation. The benchmark for what every craft RIS should aspire to be. Incredibly rich in flavor and spot on for the texture i want for the style.

nasty3939 (21) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2017
On tap at Chans Craft Bar in Destin. Great chocolate, coffee licorice and dried fruit aroma and flavor follows. The best thing about this RIS is while it has complex layered flavors, it still is definitely a beer. Some of these stout/porters are trying to do too much and you lose the essence of being a beer. This beer shows you can deliver great complex flavors and still be a beer.

anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 2, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2017 Tap at Jupiter, nitro. Pours, well, black, with a typical soft smooth nitro head. Aroma is strong chocolate over coffee and liquorice, some caramel and oats in the back. Body is heavy, but nicely sweet and actually not overpowered as all those BA impy stouts. Really pleasant to drink, round and almost soft. More chocolate on the body, also coffee and super roasted tar, ashes. Gets very bitter and almost dry towards the palate. Very good.

Zlotta (2612) - Hagen, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2017
0.355 l bottle from Bierkompass, bottled in August 2014, cellared for two years. Pitch black with a medium large, very dense and foamy, stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and quite fruity aroma of dark chocolate, licorice, hazelnut, vanilla and dark ripe fruits. Rather sweet, moderately roasty-malty, a bit fruity taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, hazelnut, some vanilla and hints of dark ripe fruits, followed by a long, fairly roasty-bitter, earthy-dry finish. Medium to full body, creamy and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Very tasty, quite complex, pleasant mouthfeel, overall really good!
