tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, - APR 16, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Bottle; from Brwery, thanks Evin! Opaque black colour, mocha lacing diminishes, aroma is smoke, chocolate, light peat, fudge, some citrus hops. Taste is superb. Stunning dark Belgian chocolate, like real premium stuff, smoke, some leather, some peat, fudge, toffee, roasted malts, a littel rough on the bitternes, oil ,vanilla, raisins, brown sugar, depth and complexity is stunning, really long drinking and warms up very very nicely. Ken is right, lay this for a year and it woulld be intrigueing. I may do the same. Great work, Evin! Drinkability is there and alcohol is well hidden. Great stuff. Bottle - bottled on 7th October 2013 - re-rate. Deep guey chocolate gateaux; motor oil; tar; leather; velvet; stupidly drinkable for the abv; nice roasted malts; slight charcoal; cigar ash and wooden notes. Some blackcurrant and oil and cream. A very rich and rewarding imperial stout and in my eyes probably the best in the country of course along with GKHR SR. Aged this is even better! 4.5

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 (469) - 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 (844) - 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.

BeardedAvenger (490) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Bought at Odd Bins, London Bridge. Sweet and sour coffee aroma. Chocolate too. Dark with chestnut highlights. The dark beige head soon dissipated. Sweet, a hint of bitterness that is more obvious in the finish. Full bodied. Creamy, even slick. No carbonation. Long finish, slightly astringent at its tail end. Good stuff. Warming but also pleasant with it.
