On draught at Bailey’s Taproom 2/15. Stout with a pleasing sour tinge on the finish and a refreshing yeast character. Adds depth to and evens out the usual stout flavors.

Bottle (375ml $6): Forgot to rate when I had it a couple days ago, but my general impression was great. Need to get again to fill in details.

On draught. Past notes.Colour...nearly black with a thin tan head. Nose...delightfully spicy and decidedly Belgian with dark chocolate and molasses. Palate...creamy, smooth and velvety with gobs of sweet holiday spice and bittersweet Belgian chocolate. The palate is full and quite oily and coating and the molasses comes back for a solid punch on the sweet and boozy finish.

Sarlacc83 (1540) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Tap at Tin Bucket A: Pure black with a creme head, lacing. N: Coaco, esters, coconut, vanilla, some roast and chair. T: Quite sweet, not cloying. M: Heavy oily body, no alcohol, soft carbonation. O: Decent Belgian Imperial Stout. Doesn’t really stand out from the crowd, which I do find surprising given the success of their IPA and saison. C’est la vie.

Wrote a review at Roscoe’s but was thinking what was I missing--the Belgian part. somehow opens up and clarifies the stout aspects of it. aromas of chocolate, roast malt, sawdust. Has a medium texture, which means light for stout, not that oaty oily you find elsewhere. Taste of roast malt, molasses and resin.

Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 26, 2013
On tap at The Stumbling Monk. Very dark brown, pretty much looks black in this sparsely-lit bar. Rich and roasty, with a distinctive yeast flavor that sets it apart from most other imperial stouts I’m used to tasting. Very enjoyable.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Draft at Cornbread Cafe, Eugene. Pours a dark brown/black, nearly opaque, decent amount of tan head. Aroma sweet yeastiness, akin to a tripel, pFriem’s house strain? Raisins, etc. body thin but sinister. Finish is huge, coffee, cherries, booze, an almost earthy roast character. Finish could last a little longer, warming is all that really lingers.

On tap at pFriem, pours a deep dark mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma bring out notes of cocoa powder, cardamom and a touch of coffee -- very light on the nose. Flavour brings out rich notes of cocoa powder, followed by subtle coffee and cardamom. There’s some Belgian yeast in there as well, making it very light and velvety. Extremely complex and smooth, masking the ABV very well. Exceptionally round and flavourful, yet remaining easily drinkable. Wonderful stuff.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle:   Black, large tannish head, creamy, very creamy, with nice lacing.   Looks like dessert!   Subtle nose, soft roasted malts, a little graham cracker.   As it warms a bit of dark pitted fruit comes out a bit.   Smooth on the tongue, malty, soft roasted malt profile, and again with some dark pitted fruit.   Almost has in much in common with a Dubbel than it does a Stout.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Backside has a lot more graham cracker, apple skin, sweet malts (only slightly roasted).   Did I mention sweet?   This one is fairly sweet, especially picks up on the backside.   Very clean too.   First time I have had a beer from pFriem, and certainly wont be the last.   Good stuff!
