Keg at Brewdog Shepherds Bush, London. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Malty, dark fruit aroma. Tastes similar, malty, dark fruit, some chocolate and coffee, slightly sweet. Pleasant.

Bottle from Brewdog. Don’t think I’ve had an Imperial Dark Saison before…Black with a big foamy tan head, some lacing. Smell - bubblegum, lemon, sweet cherry malts, lots of alcohol coming through. Body is medium, very foamy. Taste - toned down malts, ash, some lime maybe. Sharp, salty and some alcohol coming through, yeast. Sorachi ace?? OK.

0,341 l bottle, Brewdog Online Store.
Poured dark brown with a small creamy beige head. Roasted grainy aroma with a freaky fresh fruity character. Sweet based, roasted flavor, fruity yeasts with some tarty wood. Burnt aftertaste with some spicy-salty mouthfeel. Interesting, fruity, exciting.

Brutal fekete szine van, habja off head. Illata fekete csokis, alkoholos, elesztos. Ize konnyu, szinte habos, csokis, kaves, porkolt malatas, kicsit sos, olajos es nagyon szaraz. Utoize is rendkivul szaraz.

Imperial stout hybrid with a spicy Saison yeast finish. Really cool beer. Picked it up at Bières Du Monde in Aylmer

wlajwl (4425) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Aroma is dark fruit, malts, mild spices and a mild hint of sourness. The flavor is dark fruit/berries, malts and a long and sour/very tangy finish.

brokensail (12478) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 1, 2014
On tap @ The Trappist. Black pour with a tall tan/khaki head. Aromas of roasted malt, pepper, chocolate, and a slight yeasty funk. Fair amount of coffee and citrus peel, too. Very dry on the tongue. Some slight acidity and a mild bitterness. Fair amount of sweetness, maybe molasses. Roasted malt, coffee, pepper, and citrus peel. Notes of chocolate and grass. Not bad.

crossovert (8850) - Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2014
The saison element thankfully sticks in the background. Huge imperial stout notes, coffee, cacao, dark fruits. Only a hint of spice form the yeast.

341ml bottle. Kind of a Belgian stout. Very dark colour. Good balance of funk, fruitiness and coffee stout. Something a little different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
