Named in honor of the doggy denizens of Brussels, this hybrid beer is a mix of what we love best in a big, roasty stout, but fermented with a Belgian yeast, which brings out a beautiful fruity nose. We set aside a portion of the batch to age in bourbon barrels to allow the stouts chocolate and caramel flavors to marry with the woods natural vanilla and toastiness. The final blend pairs well with both savory dishes and your favorite desserts.

Pours black, lots of brown at edges, decent head fades away to a ring. Aroma lightly of molasses, a good bit of high quality prune, and some chocolate notes. Touch of faint booze. Flavor is a match, with a bit of vanilla on the finish. Pleasant beer, with less Belgian character than expected - but that is what made it worked.

22 oz bottle purchased locally poured into a shaker. Murky dark brown with a half inch khaki head. Just a small amount of lacing clung to the glass. Aroma of yeast and dark fruit. Rootbeerish flavor up front, dark fruit middle with a tangy bitterness. Light booze at the end. A bit flimsy on the palate. Not my idea of an Imperial Stout, more like a Foreign Stout. Very drinkable.

My valentines day present! Thanks Brie! This stanks like itís straight out of Belgium with a little funk and tons of raisins in the nose. The first sip is very chocolaty with soft carbonation and a nice (not too heavy) mouth-feel. The bourbon and vanilla flavors slowly creep up as it warms. The last few sips are like a chocolate bourbon... there is a nice spicy warmth from the alcohol. Yummy.

Bottle pours dark brown with reddish tint and thin brief tan head. Aroma dark fruits. Taste dark fruits, caramel, slight bourbon and a lot of oak. Had this twice - the first time the oak overpowered the flavor but the second was more subdued. Moderate palate with oaky finish.

OK beer that canít decide what it wants to be.

Bottle. Pours with a near black body, medium size retentive off brown, tan head. Aromas of licorice, marshmallow and milk chocolate, estery, dried raisins, chalky roast, mild oak and maple. Fudge. Flavors are woody, chalky, roasted nuts, bitter and ashy roast, char, barrel, mildly thin, tobacco, nutty. Mild yeast. Rustic. Honestly a bit bland and light on barrel. Quite dry, roasty, nutty coffee, medium-low body. Fuller carbonation
