3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thirteenth hour pours out of a very unique bottle Opaque black with hints of red. The head is a quickly disappearing mass of small bubbles mocha in color. Nose is sweet red fruit and chocolate liqueur. Thin body with some small lively bubbles. Taste is restrained red fruit with medium malt middle that has hints of bittersweet dark chocolate. I understand the rancor over this not being a typical stout. it is definitely in the belgian style. Still a good beer though.

Opaque, lasting head. Crisp, sweet, low bitterness. Dense flavor, none asserting itself pver others, avg length.

Flarra Chapter. Mycket komplex doft. Choklad kaffe samt körsbär o läder. Lätt syrlig smak av körsbär choklad o kryddor. Sen kommer kaffet o en behaglig eftersmak. Trevlig.

Bottle: Poured a dark black color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with some chocolate notes and fruity ester from the yeast is pretty awesome. Taste is a nice mix of roasted malt with loads of black chocolate notes and some residual sugar with nice fruity ester notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Pretty solid take on the Belgian style stout IMHO.

We think that this is a bad bottle as it has a sour edge to it. Pretty far from an imperial stout. Disappointed.

Not a big fan of the barrel series as a rule. This is the one exception. Pours dark burgundy with a nice fluffy head. Nice Belgian-style taste with chocolate notes and a good barrel flavor. Coffee flavor is less pronounced than advertised.
