3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 !

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
