COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

Pours darkest brown in color with a huuuuge tan head. Great lacing. The aroma is, well, a little bretty and lactic. A little infected it seems. Maybe this was intentional. A little roast and some Belgian yeast. Flavor isn’t that bad. It’s a little like Cuvee Delphine. Not quite as good though. Very Belgian with maybe a little lacto/brett. Berries, roast, chocolate, and espresso as well. Medium-full body with some smooth silkiness despite the low carbonation. Dry on the finish. I have mixed feelings on this beer. For one, it’s probably infected. But besides that, it’s not bad!
