Silver medal at Soleure’s extreme beer fest 2007. An extreme black beer whose nose goes toward pepper, vanilla, ashes, tobacco and fresh hops. It reaches the palate all in softness, but quickly becomes intensely bitter, though not very dry. Long and satisfying finish.
This Cuvée was created in the honor of the Jurrassian revolutionist Alex Le Rouge. Enjoy this wonderful Cuvée at about 10°-12° Celsius (50°-53°F), with a crunch of bitter Chocolate or a Cigar. Cuvée Alex Le Rouge can be sequestrated for a few years in a cellar. Ingredients: water, barley malts, hops, cane sugar, yeast, Serawak pepper, Russia tea, Bourbon vanilla.

dimeon (60) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 9, 2016
A: Pours dark blackish red with a very faint head. Some sediment floating around. Hints of marmite and oak on the nose. T: Dark roasted malts, with berry-like fruitiness and a grip from the oak influence. Other fruits, such as peach and guava are also in the background. P: Long finish of fruits and dark malts, with very little discernible bitterness. Excellent beer. The dark fruits and summer fruits don’t always match up perfectly, however.

Aunque pueda parecer extraño hacer una Imperial Stout con un toque Sour, lo cierto es que el resultado es una cerveza mucho mejor de lo que cabría esperar. Primero se aprecia más el toque Sour pero, a medida que la vamos degustando, pasan a apreciarse más los matices del estilo Imperial Stout. La recomiendo - aunque sólo sea para experimentar.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6835) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Sampled from an 11.15 oz flip top brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a huge creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was cola, wood, cherry, vanilla, toasty malts and anise. The flavor was sweet yet bitter with toasty malts, wood, fig, raisin, anise and a bit of cognac. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Odd but interesting.

Cunningham (7048) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2016
Complete black color with a fine frothy beige head. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Ok sweetness and a bit oily texture. Chocolate, berries, some spices and some sour notes in the flavor. Complex and a bit weird beer.
[Bottle from a trade with Bov]
