3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet bready malty aroma, chocolate, licorice, light roast.
Pours a very dark brown almost black with small wispy off white head
Flavor starts subtle then goes into oak and licorice, some roast, bready.
Medium heavy bodied with high co2, interesting mouthfeel, fluffy and chalky, almost makes me want to chew on it or smash with my tongue, some alcohol warmth, lingering dry oaky finish.
I've never had a beer similar to this, which makes me like it. Not really complex. Well balanced, awesome mouthfeel. Surprising that it's 9% abv

Bottle, BBE 05/06/16. Pours dark brown, black with a large, latte-colored head. Aroma is light roast, dark fruitiness, crisp, sour red berries. Taste is roast, dark fruit, fermented fruit, red berries. Slight coffee and clove. Feels sour. Gone off a bit, maybe? Very strong carbonation. Not good.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a jet black beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma is malty, sweet red fruits, roasted malts and a hint of caramel. Flavor is very weird, some tarty fruits with roasted malts and acidic hints. Really weird and almost seems a bit off in my humble opinion. Some metallic notes in the aftertaste. Immensly carbonated. Weird... very weird.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a black color with a one finger off white to tan foamy head that dissipated gracefully and leaving a small cap of a head. Lacing seemed structured and clingy roaming all around the glass and spider webs nicely.
The smell starts off with dark fruits over top of some sweet Belgian sugars. Light clove slides in to spice things up a bit.
The taste was moderately sweet with a nice bitter and roasty underscore of the Belgian spices/clove. Subtle dark fruity aftertaste. Quick dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. Makes for a nice sipper. Carbonation feels good as a Belgian Stout.
Overall, not sure why its labeled as a foreign stout on here, because to me, I’d say this leans closer to a Belgian stout. Still, I’d say its good stuff for the most part.

11.2 oz bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours mostly black with a thin off white head. Aroma is very European, blackberries, minerals. The taste is minerals, dark fruits, figs, chocolatey. Body is a bit thinner than American stouts, but i kind of like that, carbonation is medium to high. Good.
