Pleasant roasty aroma, but a punch of alcohol here too, despite the ageing. Some raisins too. Taste is rich and malty, some alcohol. Full smooth body. Finish dry, woody. very dry. A bit harsh, and very boozy. However, a pleasant sipper.

375ml bottle (thanks FatPhil) BB 17.04.2023. Pitch black color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Fart, alcohol, roast, dark fruits, sweet, bourbon in aroma. Roast, sweet, alcohol, dark fruits, raisins, smoked plums in taste. Dark smoked plums and raisns and roast in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Sweet and boozy (still). Alcohol is massive and ruins drinkability. Otherwise nice brew.

Bottle. Teku. Pitch black with medium, light brown, densed head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma are mostly roasted malts - lots of milk chocolate, raisins, dark dries fruit, brown sugar, molasses. Some lightly smokiness. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Full body, oily and thick texture, soft carbonation, finish is booze, sweet with touch of bitterness. In general beer is highly drinkable, complex with domination of sweet malts. In my opinion to malty-sweet for RIS, its more like an imperial porter, but beside this solid beer.

matbli (299) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle, pours dark brown with a high pillowy beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, raisins, dried plums, a hint of coffee, caramel with some light alcohol notes. Full bodied with high sweetness inthe foreground and some roasty bitterness in the finish. Slightly warming, maybe also because of the chilli peppers but if not on the describtion I would never guess they were added. Its not spicy at all. Nevertheless an Excelent RIS.

alteregoo (1145) - POLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się piękna, beżowa piana, dość trwała i z niezłym lajsingiem. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Aromat zdominowany przez kakao, likier kawowy, trufle... W smaku jest podobnie, dość słodko, czekoladowo, z tym że dochodzi do tego od razu, już przy pierwszym łyku delikatna pikantność chili, ktra stopniowo się nasila z każdym kolejnym łykiem. W tle nuty sherry, rumu, rodzynek, wędzonych śliwek węgierek... Goryczka średnia do niskiej, tytoniowo papryczkowa, odrobinę za mało kontrująca cukrową słodycz. Alkohol pięknie wkomponowany, w zasadzie całkowicie przykryty pikantnością. Wysycenie niskie, gładki, oleisty i gęsty w odczuciu.
Po raz kolejny potwierdza się, że nie jestem chili headem, aczkolwiek ten RIS to klasa światowa, pikantność wchodzi powoli, tylko do pewnej granicy, ktrej nie przekracza. Potężne ciało, fajny balans, godne podziwu ukrycie tak wysokiego alkoholu to niewątpliwe zalety. Warto byłoby nieco podnieść goryczkę.
