PabloZab (1481) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle 330ml (BB 05.02.2021). Bottled on 05.02.2016, 9% ABV. Completely black with large, light-brown head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee first, then it is intense roasty. Mega roasty in taste, chocolate and coffee also with subtle sour in aftertaste. Bitterness is roasty, long and agressive but the beer is smooth with nice sweetness at the finish. Realy good, complex and good balanced RIS with very good hidden alcohol that only warms a bit inside.

butelka. czarne, gruby krążek beżowej piany, śliczne koronkowanie. w aromacie czekolada, kakao, drewno, słody palone, po ogrzaniu wyraźny alkohol. w smaku subtelnie słodkie na starcie, gorzkie na finiszu, na języku wyraźna spalenizna. długo utrzymuje się na podniebieniu. nasycenie niziutkie. kernel znowu świetnie

28-02-17 // bottle at home. 9.5% ABV. Deep black beer with deep beige head. Strong malty aroma, with coffee and some sweetness. Taste is quie light for the high ABV, but with loads of roasted malts, caramel sweetness, coffee, some liquorice.

doblib (3) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017 does not count
Nice aroma and a fairly smooth sensation on the palate. Slight afternote of bitterness once consumed but pleasant enough.

Derbeth (889) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle. Black colour, small head. Aroma is soy sauce, coffee, liquorice. I think it lacks some body. A bit harsh, not very drinkable.

Arme fort chocolat. Faible mousse. Trs onctueuse. Plutt soft pour une impriale. Trs classique mais sans fausse note.

Ulysse (498) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2017
Chocolate Aroma. Low head and low carbonation. Feels like a building block that could be used for a fancy imperial Stout. On its own its a very good stout but falls short of being an imperial Stout in my opinion. Could drink lots of this.

BlazerT (1052) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle. Pitch black with small to medium, thick, light brown head. Heavy malty aroma, caramel, roasted, coffee, lots of milk chocolate, dried dark fruits up front - pruns, raisins, slightly toffee and licorice. Taste is heavy sweet and moderately bitter, stable, long duration. Full body, thick and oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is semi-bitter, semi-dry, slightly roasted, dark fruits. ABV is extremely well hidden, the brew is highly drinkable, it tastes like plums coated with milk chocolate. Summary: Very good brew. It shows how based on milk chocolate and dried fruits RIS should look like. Podsumowanie: Mleczna czekolada, toffi, krwki, sporo suszonych śliwek i rodzynek. Piwo nie powala swoją złożonościa czy wybitnie wysublimowanym charakterem, ale jest znakomitym old-schoolowym RISem. Mogło by być trochę więcej ciała.
