Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

Radek Kliber (6825) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Where and how: bottle 355ml, tasting
Aroma: strong. Clean yeast nose. Soft wrap, hint of with vanilla. Slight hint of chocolate, toasty sides.
Appearance :
Top: large tanned head, rings on glass walls.
Base: brown
Palate : medium full bodied, drinkable with long lasting finish.
Taste: coffee roast, too roasty feel for proper Baltic. Creamy backing makes it tad too soft as well. As in aroma, hints of vanilla. Alcohol well hidden adding gentle warmth.
other notes very nice imperial stout that wants to be Baltic.

STRIX918 (5) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 19, 2015 does not count
Dark brown pour with small, short-lived beige head. Aroma is mild with sweet roasted malt and some coffee and cola. Taste is more complex and amplified. Starts off slightly sweet with dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and faint licorice. Finishes bitter with an ashy, tobacco aftertaste that was the only thing I didn’t like about this beer. Smooth medium mouthfeel with low carbonation and alcohol well hidden.

500ml bottle from trade with Don. Aroma: chocolate, bourbon, woody. App: dark brown with small mocha head, little lacing. Taste and palate: full bodied, smooth, medium sweetness, medium carbonation, quite lactic, light bitter finish. Overall: well done. Quite smooth and easy to drink. A really good first beer after a 5 hours drive to a cottage in Ferme-Neuve.

En bouteille au Farmhouse Tap & Grill de Burlington et compagnie de François Moisan et Mademoiselle Irina. Comme les autres Framinghammer que j’ai eu l’occasion de déguster dans le passé, cette bière est laiteuse, crémeuse et lactée à la manière d’une milk stout. Arômes de vanille, de lactose intense (trop pour moi) et de café en grains. Nez intéressant qui manque toutefois de complexité, tant la vanille est omniprésente. Effervescence agréable et texture des plus soyeuses. L’alcool est présent et le liquide s’estompe délicatement tel un dessert sur mon palais dorloté et bordé.

Bottle. Pours black in color with a beige head. Lots of roasted malts, light campfire, coffee and fresh licorice in aroma. Nice. Coffee, sweet chocolate and dark fruityness in taste. Smooth too, with a fairly dry and warming finish.
