COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned; Special
The brett hasn’t made this a sour beer, it’s rounded off, given a great aroma, with a sweet cherry pie flavour. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, prickly and very drinkable.

My Bottom Line:
Mochaccino and smoked coconut notes suffuse this well-malted Imperial Stout, as brettanomyces contributes intelligent funkiness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the brownish black.
-I was happy to see that brett was part of the whole, not the main player. Malts still reign in this one.
-These malts develop plenty of flavour and just enough body to envelop the funk thoroughly.
-Citrusy hop accents are also perceived.
-Toasted cereal flavors become longer and longer with every sip.

Bottle. Thx Ian!

Bottle. Pours black with small beige head that diminshes to nothing. The aroma is strong cocoa, roast, brett. Thick mouth chewy, light brett, wood, roast, sweet, very good.

Bottle. Pours black with no head at all or carbonation. Aroma is ash, tar, coffee, plum, raisin, cinnamon, clove and blackcurrant. Flavour is bitter, a touch sour, with a boozy, oily finish that is a little thin considering its strength. It’s hard to dislike a well brewed imperial stout, but I’ve definitely had much better ones.

Bottle from Beergium. Black with a brown head. Aroma is dry, roasted malt, chocolate and bretty. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish with warming alcohol. Oily. 220116

Csouye (57) - OLNE, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2015
Un Imperial Stout, plus que correct, avec une étrange saveur de fût de lambic due à la refermentation... UN produit surprenant, d’une rare qualité !

Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours black with a few tan bubbles. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, brett, berries, and dried fruits. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm, roasted, berry, chocolate and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat to soft.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle. A black one, topped by a dense, tan head. The aroma is rather roasted and licorice-ish, with leather, dark chocolate and coffee, cocoa and lemonish brett. Chocolate, coffee and some dried fruits in the back of the flavor, with bitterness, leathery and citrusy funk. Some alcohol. Lasting finish with lots of licorice. A nice one indeed, but a bit weird in a way. Quite complex, still not a favorite. 150711
