Has the chew. Reminds me of tootsie rolls, carmel, light coffee that linger then faded into an very faint iron taste.

Not my first one, but this one is 18 months old and I gotta say, it might be even better than the fresh one's I had initially purchased. I'm a little surprised by this as it is in a can and you don't often here good things about canned beer aging.

Dark, espresso-like, full but not obnoxious flavour; not much head to speak of, great taste and mouthfeel

Alcohol Paul brought this over, as we just started getting shipments of this to my area recently. Although it is exorbitantly expensive, I have always heard rave reviews about this beer. Hopefully this goes better than the last few times a beer got overhyped. Side poured from the can into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance - Pours a motor oil black with an impressive mocha colored one finger head that displays excellent retention and leaves amazing lacing. I love the packaging, and the beer itself presents very well.

Smell - Smells of strong malty sweetness, alcohol, licorice, roastiness, and chocolate, among other things. Very appealing.

Taste - Even better than the nose. All of the above mentioned flavors coalesce into one of the best RIS's I have ever tasted. Totally exceeded expectations.

Mouthfeel - Finishes big, rich, creamy, sweet, with just a touch of bitterness and alcohol warmth. Amazing.

Overall - This beer totally exceeded all expectations. Probably the best RIS I have had, and one of the top ten production beers I have drank ever. Although the price can be a turn off, it is worth the coin to grab a four or six pack of these. Its a religious experience.
