Prufrockstar (2037) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2015 Blind RIS experiment [Sample 15 of 20, 4/30/2015] Poured by Summer. Near black, sexy dark brown mocha head, medium duration, some lacing at first, but it doesnt last. Aroma: Rich. Chocolate and roast/char (need a code name for roast that makes me think of smoke / ash / char but still is actually in the roast category]. Smells nice, right down that line I seem to gravitate toward (on the rich and decadent side, with chocolate at forefront but still with solid dose of thick roastiness and just a touch of soy sauce so I think of slow roasted BBQ with just an undercurrent of coffee). Light marshmallow sweetness under there. Lots of lovely chocolate lasting in the finish of this one. Notably (and thankfully) missing: tin can and pie filling. Im digging this one, oh yeah. Digging on it hard. Well-balanced taste. Id guess this is on the 10%+ ABV side, but it doesnt feel harsh in any way whatsoever. This one is really nice. Full body, good carbonation, smooth velvety texture. Great mouth-coating sweet smooth chocolate syrup that lingers long after the drink is done. Overall: Great. one of the best yet. There have been a few that are "down the middle and boring," but this is "balanced, down the middle, and fantastic."

RB Rating: 8/4/9/5/17.
Observation: It occurs to me my descriptions are getting weaker. Maybe losing steam / running into some imperial stout fatigue? Only 5 more to go. This one came at a good time, though.
Guess: Could be Narwhal. Could be Expy. Whatever it is, I want more.
Would pay: $4/bottle for a regular thing; $5 once in awhile. I sure as hell hope its easy to find so I can remain well-stocked.

(1/4/2013) Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, toffee, roasted grains and coffee. Pours motor oil black with small ring of tan head. Smooth, full bodied viscous mouthfeel. Mild bitterness balances the sweetness up front. Really quite nice. [8/4/8/5/17]

BlazerT (733) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Can. Sensoric. Pitch black with medium, thick, light brown head. Perfect head retention and good lacing.Highly roasted malts aroma - dark, bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted notes, molasses, licorice. Taste is highly bitter balanced with heavy, roasted bitterness, very long duration. Medium to full body, oily and thick texture, finish is bitter, roasted, ashy and dry. Summary: State of the art of classic, non-BA RIS - takes from the malts whats the best.

Can at home. Pours black with a nice thick tan head. Aroma is bursting with chocolate, both dark and milk chocolate, coffee, like a nice espresso, roasted malts, caramel, toffee, fudge, a fruity note that evens it all out. Nice full oily body with medium carbonation.
