COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Black Espresso Saison. Pillars Of Strength series.
Try out some spicy meatballs or foie gras for appetizers or perhaps some Gouda or Gruyere cheese varieties. For a more hearty meal a grilled ribeye steak, lamb chops, Blue cheese crusted hamburger or smoked brisket are all fantastic choices. Mounds of Grounds is a perfect companion to many deserts but we love it with Vanilla ice cream, pumpkin pie or even tiramisu. 40SRM

Black pour with a khaki head. Heavy coffee aroma, but a touch acidic. Roasted malt, a lot of dark fruit, pepper, and coriander. The spice kind of clashes with the coffee, particularly on the palate. Roasted malt and coffee flavor with a hint of chocolate. Some alcohol, pepper, coriander, and pear. Really odd combination of flavors. Doesn’t exactly work.

Loved the coffee aspect of this beer. Really had a lovely ground coffee aroma and taste to it without being bitter and burnt. On the downside the saison part was lost. Faded under the coffee.

Sampled at GABF 2013. Black with a light tan head. Coffee, roast, dark fruit, spices, herbs, light chocolate. Interesting flavor, heavy on the coffee.
