Uzupełnienie profilu notatki.
Piana obfita, opada zdobi szkło, resztka jej pozostaje do końca. Kolor Czarny. Aromat palone słody, czekolada, słodki owocowy, nuty dymne, chmielowe klasyczne. Smak wysoka palonośc, kwaskowo od palonych słodów, równie intensywna gorzka czekolada, suszone owoce, pełnia, słodycz nie przytłaczająca, wraz z wysoką goryczką idzie na finiszu ostrość, chropowatość, lekko alkohol w likierową nutę. Piwo gładkie w strukturze, smaki grają, po ogrzaniu smaki się otwierają i dostajemy konkretnego RISa brakuje tu jedynie beczki dębiny i wanilii, wersja OAK czeka. Bardzo Dobre.

oobawa (1790) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2017
Sweet, decadent RIS, massive swaths of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and anise percolating over a surprisingly firm hop bill, leading to a dry, roasty finish. Pours a viscous black with a thick brown head and good lacing. Nose is straight mocha. Thick texture holds a manageable but present boozy warmth. Nice beer.

Aroma of chocolate. Heavy coffee taste and light carbonation. Chocolate aftertaste lingers beautifully. A little more hop notes after it warms.

bartlebier (4159) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2017
1PT6oz bomber bb:N/A (vintage?), via fairly priced Bier&Co. - Bref: satisfying oldschool ImpStout with more roasty coal and liquorice character than childish candy sweetness. Has that leather and old manure astringency of original UK ImpStouts, SamSmith style, with a more pronounced coffee bean roast woven deep into its silky texture. Bitters equally distributed over hedgerow hops and roast, softly mitigated by brown sugars. Austere in a way that it urgently invites a blue cheese pairing or vanilla ice cream float.

Bottle 0.66l sample at Ratebeer Belgian Winter Gathering 2017 Antwerp, Belgium at Beerlovers Bar 25.02.2017. Thanks everybody for sharing great beers! First Batch 2009. Pour it dark color with no head. Aroma ginger, pine, molasis. Taste really kick of molasis, sweet caramel, sticky feel, some bourbon notes, candy sugar, heavy cloying sweetness, medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish. Nice!

Bamsen78 (5573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with big and stable tan head. Clear aroma of roast and coffee, with notes of malt and yeast. Roasty and coffeelike flavour with notes of yeast and hops and touches of fruit. Roasty and coffeelike aftertaste. Well-balanced and decent.

MiP (15981) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2017
Bottle, 10.5%. Minty aroma?! Black colour. Big stable brown head. The flavour is quite roasted and a little bready. Good mouthfeel. The alcohol is well-hidden, but a bit rough in the finish.

JefVerstraete (3666) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2017
Sample from bottle. Many thanks! Dark brown colour, brown foam. Sweet nose of coffee, roasted malts, candi sugar, bourbon caramel. Nice.
