Oddly-shaped 1 PT 9.4 FL OZ bottle shared by GRM, served cold in a tulip glass. 20JL12.

App.: Deep-brown-black with a fair mocha head. Aroma: Funky tartness, light wood notes, some molasses/licorice notes, coffee/chocolate notes, the funky/tartness is overpowering, faint esters. Palate: Medium body, fine, limited effervescence, powdery. Flav.: The stout notes come through a little more, still lots of funk, touches of Belgian esters, licorice and molasses, woodsy, a little better; off-dry with fair bitterness and a nice coffee/chocolate finish.

Kinda odd and didnít work for me.

Pours dark reddish brown with a thick mocha head. Slowly dissipates to a rich with minor lacing. Smell is fruity with some caramel and chocolate. The taste is sour dark fruit and molasses. There is a nice coffee/chocolate in the middle. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. Overall an interesting beer. Great flavors. Worth a try.

Dark black in color, thin tan head. Nice chocolate flavor and rich coffee follwoing. Loved the flavors rich and thick. The Belgian yeast flavors where light this was a super beer. Nice wood aged flavors and light aroma.

Big bottle, cork. Poured a dark brown with ruby tones. Full head. Aroma has dark fruits, beglium candy, yeast, orange, slight cocoa. Cocoa is alot more prominent in the taste. Medium light sweetness taste. Medium to medium heavy body. Creamy palate. Very strong belgium tones. Slight oaked flavors. Dark fruits (raisins). This is very good. Glad to to see Sam representing.

Pours an opaque dark brown with a foamy tan head, aroma is mild with a slight sourness. Not overly flavorful with some belgian yeast character and a dry roasty finish. This beer is pulling in two directions but neither really works that great. Thin feel and a bit over carbonated.

The shape of the bottle stands out on the shelf so it caught my attention. Pours a dark black with a small head that dissipates. Very aromatic chocolate , coffee. Goes down smooth with plenty of carbonation. It says on the bottle to age it for years, but I couldnít wait that long. Would try again.

Man this was bad. Iím not sure what they were trying to do but the belgian yeast and spice flavors dontí play well with the stout attempt at all. It donít make sense on the nose or the tongue.

Chocolate malts on the nose with hints of Brett and wood. Pours black with a thin off white head. Fruit upfront with spicy Brett followed by chocolate malts and oaky vanilla. Trace hints of funk in the background very nice!!

Pours thin and over carbonated. I get no oak or spices in the nose or taste. Taste is undesirable. Mostly Belgian but in the worst ways. Not a stout at all. Drain pour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
