A very unique stout. Pours a nice inky black with a dark tan head. Smells like hickory smoked beef jerky. More of that in the taste. Starts off sweet and creamy, but ends with a bunch of smoke. Maybe slightly too much in the aftertaste, but good stuff!

From WLVL. Less like drinking bourbon soaked wood like some other Imperial Stouts. The Belgian yeast gives it a little bit of a quadruple like quality, to the coffee, chocolate, licorice, still somewhat boozy woody stout. Serving: Bottle

(12oz. bottle) - One finger tan head w/large bottles. Lots of bottles coating the inside of the glass. Dark brown, bordering on black, body. Mild aroma. Signature Belgian yeast character in the flavor. Traits of cocoa powder and raisins. Alcohol finish. Reminds me more of a Quad than an Imperial Stout. Still, mighty tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black, with a thick, foamy tan head that settles to a substantial lace - dry cocoa/bakers chocolate hit the nose first, followed by some spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, noticeable rye, peppery character, some notes of molasses far in the back, light hints of smoke and cloves - full carbonation, semi-soft in the mouth - some sweetness up front, but this is fairly dry for the strength - a lot of cocoa, some tobacco - some spicy, slightly bitter rye combines well with some black malt bitterness - notes of licorice/anise, warming spices - touches of smoke around the edges that taste like a product of the yeast - a few other mild, belgian-ish phenols and spiciness - finishes dry, with quite a bit of alcohol warmth - a little too much so - a fairly solid take on a belgian-style stout - it’s just a little too hot in the finish.
