Jabic (467) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Ar: Black licorice, dark cocoa powder, cherry, and vanilla; earthy coffee and slight smoke; a bit of milk and green pepper; dark caramel. Ap: Black and opaque; medium mocha head with moderate retention, leaves a thick ring of small bubbles and a cap of small and medium bubbles across the top. T: Sweet cocoa and vanilla with a smooth, rich coffee flavor; sweetness up front with cocoa, licorice, and burnt caramel notes; extremely rich; dank, piney hops with a high bitterness; some alcohol warmth, but very clean; milky and chocolatey on the finish, with highly roasted caramels and some ashy qualities lingering in the finish. P: Fully body with medium-high carbonation; finish is medium-sweet. O: This is an exceptional RIS; tons of complexity, remarkably rich and luscious; the coffee flavor melds wonderfully with the dark caramel, chocolate, and hop flavors; great mouthfeel and a long, satisfying finish.

Similar flavor, big creamy chocolate and coffee notes with a touch of dark fruits. Medium to full body with a lingering bittersweet finish. Nicely done overall.

Big dark thick and sweet. Think sweet cream, vanilla, coffee, roast and chocolate. Definitely a dessert beer, but a good one.

SlovakSniper (5356) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2016
Petite canette. Une dentelle autour de mon verre malgr le peu de tnacit de cette mousse beige. Un nez de caf dlicieux et de caramel, de notes rties et de tiramisu. Quand mme drlement efficace comme prsentation olfactive! Des saveurs de caf et de crales rties arrondies par des malts doux aux accents de chocolat, de caramel et drable fonc. La bouche est modrment riche et ptillante. La finale est principalement amre par le caf. Dlicieux jus brun. Je dirais mme plus: dans les ligues majeures.

(En ft Good Oak Bar Tucson): Chocolat liquide, cardamom, crme 35% et une dcadence fluide totalement inattendue. En voyant les rating, je comprends mieux.

Can courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Cheers, my friend. Pours a deep obsidian with an off-white head. Nose is roast, sweet coffee, lactose, mocha and caramel character, earth, mild bitterness, and some cocoa. Flavor is similar with chocolate, roast, bakers chocolate, cocoa, and earth with some bitterness in the finish. Light to medium in body and nice overall.
