On tap at Tørst.

Pours a very dark brown. Head is mocha, of a light-to-darker gradient. Hugely dense with great thick retention. Looks amazing.

Lots of vanilla on the nose with big, sweet dark chocolate and nuts, salted caramel and some oatmeal. Pleasant and sweet.

Very sweet palate: huge chocolate flavour with oaky vanilla characters, caramel toffee, then towards the back it gets a quite subtle dark bitterness mixing with some big boozey notes that are there but not offensively big. Very smooth, big oatmeal stout with loads of flavour.

Shame about the slight boozey heat towards the back. Otherwise a very smooth body.

Great sweet stout, plenty to like. Even on the hottest day of the year (which it was).

Pours thick, smooth, and very black with dark brown head which fades into an awesome light whisp atop the beer. Aromas are smoked meat, dark chocolate, wood, cream, roasted malt, booze, and hops. This beer completely makes loves to your palate...silky, supple, and soft. Amazing and sexy. Flavors dark chocolate liquor, bittersweet chocolate, smoke and wood. Hops and booze. A touch of sour at the end. Very well made, very delicious.

Poured into a snifter, black allowing no light through with a dense brown head, leaves a slight oily lacing. Aroma is boozy, sweet and roasty with dark fruit and floral notes. Gets sweeter and boozier as it warms. Upfront it tastes very sweet, boozy, dried cherries followed by lingering roasty/coffee flavors with dark chocolate, burnt sugars, toffee, and herbal/citrus notes. Gets sweeter as it warms and the roast flavors mellow a bit. Medium viscous, coating mouthfeel but not as heavy as some other RIS. Overall a solid RIS, the roast can be a little astringent at times, especially when cold. Very good and should age well, some oxidation and time to mellow should do the brew well. Will definitely drink this one again.
