3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corked bottle and served in my NB worthy glass: Pours a deep cola brown with a fading fizzy beige head and some lace. The aroma has notes of anise and pepper, plum, toasty pumpernickel bread, herbal, dusty yeast esters, a classic Belgian sour/funk woody nose. Actually once I got used to it, it was quite nice!
The taste profile is a bit more simple with anise and peppery textures over a layer of sweet chocolate and nutty malts. These are supported by lactic twang and a herbal wildflower quality. The finish is slightly dry and woody with some smoke out and about.
The mouth feel is lively but reserved, thin to medium-bodied and the alcohol is VERY WELL HIDDEN. Shiz until I just looked I would have never guess anything close to the 9% listed. If you like Jolly Pumpkin stout then you should give this one a spin around the dance floor. This one really grew on me, got better as it warmed. But buyer beware....this is not your normal stout!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
rood/bruin met minimale kaki kraag. aroma van caramel en veel héél veel donker fruit. smaken zijn redelijk zoetig, veel donkere fruiten, wat caramel, iets koffie en geroosterde mout. Nou niet echt een typische Stout, eerder qua fruitigheid en zoetigheid neigende naar een bock maar dan één met koffie en wat geroosterde mout. er zit wel smaak in... mwah

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark ruby red beer with beige head. Does not really look and taste like a stout to me, its more like a quadrupel.
