Pitch black with white foam. Chocolate and liquirice, roasty. Very very bitter aftertaste that lasts a lifetime. Excellent imperial stout, have chance to drink this all too rarely.
Bottle. Pours black with a deep beige head. Aroma is raisin, dried fruit, soy sauce, some chocolate. Body is heavy, strongly bitter and rather sweet, with a discreet carbonation. Raisin again, burnt roast malts, some booze, glue. Long palate. Not bad, but not a beauty of an imperial stout either. Serapac (564) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 27, 2017

bar, Helsinki. Black, creamy beige head. Aroma smoked meat, burned wood, liquorice. Taste largely follows - smoky sweet. Very smooth texture, rather full body.
Bottle shared at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Ishmael for the most adventurous bottle delivery in history! Black. Chocolate, a little roasty and burnt aroma. Bitter and burnt and raw cocoa taste. Full body, smooth, burnt finish. Great! jinroh (2462) - ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2017
RBESG 2017, sampled on July 23, 2017 @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Pours dark brown, beige film on top. Herbal hoppy nose. Body is thinner than I thought, with some extra hops it makes this heavy beer really easy to drink. Goes down quite smooth and little burnt bread coming out in the finish. aaronpetersen (8) - - AUG 21, 2017 does not count
