3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Brasserie V. Unfiltered amber-brown body. Big off-white/beige head. Sweet raisin, dark fruit pungent aroma, quite intense, Quad-like. Brown sugar and dark fruit all the way. Pretty nice beer, maybe a little sugar forward. Funky burnt chocolate, sort of an Eastern European feel at times. Fruit and nut overload. Lacks subtlety, but makes up for it in quality and richness. Prune. Not as balanced and smooth as other Stillwater beers, but very Belgian. OK. Tastes like an Imperial Belgian Buckwheat ale.

Max’s Taphouse, Baltimore cask: I tried samples of this from tap and cask and opted for the cask, which I got poured into an imperial pint (oh my!). Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is molasses, fruits, spice, and a good bit of yeast. Alcohol is quite high, but is also quite well covered. That being said, there is certainly a bite in this. Some burnt flavor in there with the molasses. Loads of fruit. Hella lot of maltiness. I got a hangover a few hours later, but it was worth it. Good beer.
