A most unorthodox imperial stout brewed with malted rye and aggressively hopped with four U.S. varieties to develop a depth of character like no other. Notes of rye, treacle, chocolate and espresso are joined together to create a crescendo of flavor. Full-bodied and warming. With an ABV of 10.9%, you will be doing a Kalinka dance after drinking this.

procraste (304) - FRANCE - OCT 13, 2015
Deux puissances aromatiques qui se font face: Le malt torréfié face aux houblons. ça se passe plutôt bien et même de mieux en mieux à mesure que le verre se réchauffe. C’est amusant puisqu’en un sens, je trouve cette bière assez orthodoxe mais dans le bon sens ... Le seul truc un peu particulier à mon goût, ce sont des notes "vertes" sympathiques en fin de bouche, sans doute liées aux houblons. Souvent sur les stout, cela me fait penser à la cardamone, mais là non. Mystère !

Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, slight coffee, earthy, toasted malt. Taste is dark chocolate, burnt caramel, coffee, weirdly a very slight hint of stilton in the background. Overall a very decent beer but a bit on the thin side.
