Bottle from deftim13, thanks again. Pours black with a creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, port wine, oak alcohol and musty yeast. Flavor is rich dark chocolate, bitter roasted malt, coffee and light tart yeast taste. Full body with a thick, creamy mouth feel. Really nice beer, the yeast adds a nice complexity.

Merci Boutip! Liquide huileux qui gnre une norme tte qui se maintient tonnamment bien. Le nez est bien empreint du vieillissement en ft de porto, tannins et raisins dominent. Des notes despresso et de chocolat noir frayent galement dans le courant. En bouche cest moyen, confortable avec une effervescence adquate mais le caractre du porto prend un peu trop le dessus pour moi.

Bottle from Struise Bruges Beershop. Pours very black with a huge creamy dark tan head. Id swear its got blueberry in the aroma. Its certainly berry, and not very reddish. Full bodied. Flavor is very dark berry with strongly burnt malt. Its smooth. Heat is definitely present. But its a very different beer, and that doesnt matter. Its a beer that makes one think and think and think. Good stuff.

very dark brown color, blueberry chocolate pie, moderately sweet, very intense, slightly tart nose. Wow. Full bodied, slightly tart, prunes, blueberry, chocolate. Lingering blueberry finish.

KyotoLefty (10106) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Baggio. Blueberry, chocolate nose, some phenols. High carbonation, but it is fine and light. Woody finish, big berry flavor, tons of berries, like a framboise with chocolate added. Not very stout-like, but tasty as hell.

A soft chocolate farmhouse inspired nose greets on opening this. Flavour really springs on to the palate initially - lots of wild berries, some cchocolate and roast. Doesnt seem overly cohesive, but the soft round body holds it together, even if it is slightly unattenuated. Nice little beer, especially considering it is 11%!.

Bottle. Black beer with a beautiful rich brownish head that is very lasting. Malty dark chocolate aroma, quite roasted, vanilla, roasted, licorice, figs, cocoa, some tar. Dark chocolate flavor, roasted, peat, cocoa, woody notes, berries, some alcohol, figs, cream notes, licorice and spicy chilli notes. Long bitter chocolate finish with figs, peat and licorice. Rather interesting beer. Heavy but still drinkable.

teorn88 (7647) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 6, 2012
33cl bottle. It pours a super dark brown / almost black colour with a big beige head. Lasting foam. Aroma is roasted malts, booze, smoky wood, raisin, figs and plums. Taste is sweet up front with a good amount of bitternes to cut through it. Malty, caramely but woody and roasty at the same time. Notes of dried dark fruits and hints of booze. Mouthfeel is quite thick qith good carbonation. Overall, very very good RIS, but not the best for sure.
