4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Boris pours a pitch black color with a small tan head. Bubbles shoot up from the bottle to the top of the glass. The smell on this beer is pretty damn nice. I was impressed from the start. It has a lot of the same characteristics of a lot of the RIS out there. Nice cocoa smell up front, small amount of coffee, dark fruits, and alcohol. I would of love more of a coffee aroma here but overall nice aroma.
Taste doesn’t exactly match the greatness of the aroma but it’s still very nice. Roastiness comes through more here with the chocolate, coffee, and dark fruits rounding out the taste. The alcohol in this beer is pretty well hidden for being 10%. None of the ingredients really take each other over. Pretty damn balanced from start to finish.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, slick, coats the mouth. Carbonation is fairly high here. There’s a pretty big bitterness.
12oz bottle from Premier Gourmet, shared with PracticePlastic. Oily black pour. Brown/beige head. Nice molasses and caramel thickness and strength. Nose better, taste a bit off, fairly salty. Full bodied with some alcohol, the blend is ok but no better. Finishes fairly bitter and strong. 13.4 weihenweizen (4041) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2017

Bottle. Black pour with a small mocha brown head. Aroma is roasty chocolate, coffee, subtle dark fruit and just a hint of alcohol. Taste is cocoa, coffee, cherries, raisin. Rich and slightly boozy, balanced finish. Sammy (12596) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2017
Bottle from Premier Gourmet from a couple years back. Thick malt and roast, more sweet than bitter but still bitter. Nothing outstanding in aroma, would have liked a good roast and coffee nose. A solid beer though more middle of the pack in this great category. fonefan (50537) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 3, 2017
