This imperial stout was oak aged on wooden barrels with cherries and Brettanomyces yeast. You can imagine the complexity of this beer.

@PWBF 2011. The aroma has roast, sourish cherries, wine, hint of chocolate. Black coloured beer with a beige head. The taste is bitter, has sour brett, roast, fruits, wine, dark malts. Good bodied. Very dry. Full, nice.

ACBF - post fest tasting in Mes&Sims room, thanks to Menno for fetching one of these from the back of his van! Opaque black beer, no real head. Light and pretty dry palate. Dark malt. Bitter herbs with some cherry in the background. The cherry is quite cherry liquer like. Very dry finish with a pinch of spice. Initially struggled with this one but gradually warmed to it. Kicking myself for not purchasing another bottle in the Bier Koning and aging it!

B.C."H.", slowly rising to a beige rim, over black beer with a ruby sheen. Sourish cherry nose, quite fruity and tantalizing burnt notes, hidden underneath; Winey, bitter chocolate and spirit notes, together with pure "Mon Chéri" pralines (cherry & cherryliqueur dark chocolatebonbons). Something mineral as well, vaguely peppery. Very luxuriously full-bodied; slick; obvious alcoholwarming, liqueurish. The sugarcontent makes it really sticky drying up on the lips. Well... congrats! I usually don’t like the stout - cherry combination, but this one...

UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 75cl, new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2010, with cherries, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex Stout, slightly sour and spicy, yet not too heavy, balanced, hazy, nearly no head, good and original brew, yet expensive!

Bottle 75 cl. Pours black with no head, only a few tan bubbles on the surface, and an aroma of fresh ripe cherries, brown bread, licorice, dark malts and coffee beans. The taste is dominated by roasted malts, licorice, maybe some cherries, but not as sweet as in the aroma. The finish is bitter, but I would rather say it’s an espresso like bitter than a hop-like bitter. Interesting, but De Molen has beers that are far better.

Bottle # 45. @ J&C, Friday session, 2011. Thanks. Pours black with some small beige bubbles on top. Nose is roast, soy and liquorice. Vinous and delicious. Flavor is dry and roasted with notes of soy, oak, dark fruit, liquorice and a bit of warming alcohol.

75 cl bottle. Pours black with virtually no head. Aroma is dark roasted malts, some chocolate and also a hint of cherries. Sadly enough I didn’t get the bretty notes. Except for the lack of brett, which will hopefully develop if you let it sit a bit longer, and carbonation, a very interesting brew.

Bottle from Ken and Menno. Black as hell. Thin collar of tan bubbles. Tarry impy stout aroma. No carbonation at all. Bit of cherry choc liquer in the mouth. Finish has a lot more choc. Some ok cherry flavour. No brett funk yet it may wake up later. I think the others are a tad harsh on this. I liked it. Cherry and mint on aroma. Apart from lack of crbonation I liked it.

Courtesy of madmitch76 and shared with the ACBF 2011 crew (harrisoni, mesandsim, royceh - thank you guys!). Nice cherry in the nose, thin sip, slight kirsch after-burn. Interesting.
