3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an extremely dark brown with a good head of tan foam. Lacing is okay. I get notes of spicy pepper and what seems like a fruity tartness. Peppery for sure. Some roasted malt, bitter chocolate, vanilla. overall tastes, I can only describe as rough. Full bodied with great carbonation. Strange taster of the style. Doesn’t exactly hit my palate right.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Taniguchi. BFM Cuvée Alex le Rouge 10.276%
A Jurassian Imperial Stout whatever that means. A deep black with a light beige head. An aroma of chewy oatmeal bars and savoury chocolate. Medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. The initial taste is roasty chocolate before giving you a fruity bitterness. Good stuff that gives you a surprising amount of berry flavor midway between raspberry and strawberry.
