finally got around to drinking this Pours black into a snifter. Pancake head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour pit fruit and chocolate aromas. Medium bodied with sweet and sour fruit upfront turning to chocolate and oak in the lasting finish

This whole rating thing new to me, but drinking beer isnít, so here we go. I can definitely make out the oak and spices in aroma with a hint of alcohol smell to it. Not an avid drinker of stouts on a regular basis, but it didnít strike me enough to want more of these either. I can taste the "Belgian" style in it which I am partial to. Certainly, not the worse Iíve ever tried, so I finished the glass.

First of itís style so a little unsure here. Aroma has a prominent oak and spice smell to it. A fairly thin body for a stout with ample sweetness. if your looking for something away from the norm, itís a nice beer. Though itís not something I would add to a regular rotation.

Poured into a tulip out of a 750ml bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown, nearly pitch black, with a decent one finger dark tan head. Pretty good head retention and lacing taking the abv into consideration. The aroma threw me off a little bit. Instead of a chocolatey, roasty, stout aroma I get hit with some perfumy, funky, Belgian notes. Almost reminds me of a Flanders red or something. Quite floral with a little bit of dark fruit. Not bad but just a little odd. This carries over into the flavor. Lots of fig and cherries along with just the slightest bit of funk. About halfway through and towards the finish, a little bit of light chocolate tries to come through but it is very faint. There are also some banana and bubblegum yeasty esters. Mouthfeel is on the thin side but also quite sticky. Overall, I really was expecting more stout characteristics with this beer. This screams Flanders red or Oud Brun more than Belgian ale. It is all just a bit rough around the edges and a bit weak.

Quite dark brown, not black but no light comes through.. Nice tan head. Very enticing cocoa aroma, rich and malty. Palate is comforting and flavors satisfying; cocoa, malty sweetness, toffee and a hint of roast. Finishes with just enough to keep me wanting more. Not the complexity one might expect from a Belgian but very nice. This is what I call a winter warmer. Nice job Sammy.

One of my top beers. This is a dark brown/red beer with a fluffy beige head. Although, thick and rich, it is clean and easy drinking. I taste caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, vanilla, some coffee, and toast. This is a very complex, pleasant stout with a lingering satisfying finish. Itís really pretty amazing.

Beerenberger (1581) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2013
An inviting aroma of dark fruit with notes of chocolate. An opaque dark brown pour with a mostly lasting foamy tan head. The taste is chiefly sweet with rich dark fruits the primary flavor. Also present are hints of chocolate, raisins, cherries - fruit cake. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Overall, I enjoyed the nice combination of flavors.

Pours dark brown-red with a big, fluffy light brown head. Aroma is dark fruit, spice, vanilla, Belgian yeast, and some surprising chocolate and coffee notes. Taste is fruity, caramel, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, spice and of course, Belgian yeast. Nice carbonation lends itself to both a lot of the aromatics and also a nice medium bodied mouth feel. Complex and expertly balanced. I was initial reluctant to try this but I am sold, This is a pretty extraordinary beer.

near black pour with thick brown head - notes of molasses in the nose - flavors are of coffee, chocolate, molasses and spice - finishes with a mix of all of those spices.

Awesome Belgian spiciness. I don't get any of the coffee notes promised on the bottle and the mouthfeel is a bit thin for an imperial IMO, but an awesome beer overall!
