Melker (254) - Göteborg, - JUN 19, 2014
On tap at The Roundhouse Taproom Hong Kong. Got a free sample of it and came back for more later. Really nice aroma with chocolate, berries, sherry, whiskey. Very sweet taste. Notes of cashew nuts in there also. Like it a lot.

Tognetta (803) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 22, 2016
Totalmente negra, turva, espuma marrom de ótima formação e boa persistência, cremosa, gruda nas paredes do copo. Aroma carregado de malte torrado, álcool evidente, leve defumado misturado a cerejas e uvas vermelhas, complexa. Paladar de dulçor e amargor médio/intenso, logo aparece a leve acidez que remete a uva. Corpo denso e licoroso, carbonatação média um pouco acima do esperado mas prazerosa. Final de longa persistência balanceia bem o dulçor do malte com toque de uvas e cereja, chega em alguns momentos a sensação de água mas devido ao alto teor alcoólico, com aumento da temperatura o defumado e amadeirado ficam mais evidentes.

BlazerT (735) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - OCT 21, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black with medium,light brown, dense head. Average head retention and lacing. Aroma is roasted malts (mainly milk chocolate, some light coffee accents), quite strong oaky and BA accents (much more comparing to the other versions). Some hot, smokey notes, light boozy character in the background. Taste is sth between semi-sweet and semi-dry. Definitely this version is less sweet, nice peppery hot character. Full body, thick/oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is semi-dry, chocolate, hot and astringent. Slightly booze warming with a touch o chill peppers. In general this version is the least sweet, but still nicely balanced. The high ABV is quietly noticeable and not well hidden, but the rest is still perfectly matched.

Fin (9909) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Cotteridge, Birmingham consumed at home making Kohzi Masala Fry and a Daily Dal (it’s National Curry Week) Friday 14th October 2016. Pours black, really black with a tan head, looks fab. A steady warmth throughout from the chillies, nice oily mouthfeel. This is surprisingly easy drinking at 12.2%. The sherry cask ageing is noticeable, it both softens the this and adds a little sweet sherry flavour but doesn’t overtake. Good stuff. A7 A4 T8 P5 Ov16 4.0

oh6gdx (25695) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottled. Black colour, small brown head. Very similar to the cognac aged version. This one has much more wooden notes though. This one has a slightly better balance to it as well, rounding off the alcohol a bit.

slowrunner77 (10741) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Drinks pretty easy for a complex 12%er. Dark brown pour, nose is chocolate coffee and a good amount of sherry and wood. Medium to heavy body with a flavor to match the smell. Chili is completely drowned out in this one.

Catch up from last night’s RIS bottle share. Sherry barrels add some new aspects here, some sweetness, some spicy, some wood. All together makes for a complex brew. An already solid RIS extended with new characteristics.

Boise Imperial Stout Tasting. Dark brown color with a little tan head. Nose is sweet, rich. Tastes sweet with a little bite, rich chocolate and roasty tones tamed by the sweet and mildly spicy barrel notes. Really nice.
