Aroma: Sour, Spicy and Floral with some faint roastiness Appearance: Dusty brown to black with a large lasting tan to light brown head Flavor: Open with flavor of roasted grains and coffee (these were not apparent in the nose) the sour and spicy elements show up with great restraint Palate: Sightly spritzy, Roasty toasty flavors finishing dry (dangerously drinkable) Overall: Expect the unexpected, a Belgian Stout very unique and uncommon. I really like to surprise in the sense that for an a such a big beer it is surprisingly light. The aroma is not what you expect from a stout
