This one has been in the cellar for awhile. I remember it came in a SA variety pack 1-2 years ago. Can’t find a definitive date on the bottle. Poured into over-sized snifter glass, dark black with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, heavy chocolate, light coffee, caramel, licorice, soy sauce, dark fruit and vanilla. Taste starts with light coffee, then some interesting spice notes but mainly this RIS is surprisingly sweet with chocolate dominating. Heavy body, creamy, thick with lingering roasty finish. The aging must have taken any alcohol notes away, crazy drinkable. I enjoyed.
Pours black with a low tan head. Aromas of chocolate, lactose, vanilla, roasted malt, roasted nuts. Taste is chocolatey and roasted with vanilla and lactose notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Tried for the first time back in 2009. Dark and rich. As far an imperial stouts go, its solid, but not spectacular. Lots of chocolate and dark fruit, some raisins, a little vanilla. Pleasant. avantdagare (287) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2016 Kolsvart med rödbeige tunt skum. Doftar lite syrlig bränd karamell och kaffe. Smaken mycket fyllig, syrlig, lite pepprig, bitter och alkoholanstruken med kaffe och karamellsöta som dominerar. Eftersmaken lång med lite sur kaffe- och maltsmak. På gränsen till övermogen.
