Lilja (2992) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2016
Flaska drucken p Nya Trls. Tung och lite svr hybridl. rostad, syrlig och besk. Listan p det jag saknar r lngre n den p vad jag hittar. Saknar lite frisk humle som kanske en gng funnits men nu bara lmnat beska efter sig. Saknar lite kropp och rundhet frn den rostade malten och alkoholen, saknar saisonen karaktr. Ganska fint kryddighet med lite lkerol special karaktr. Nej, Dieu du Ciel kan bttre n s hr... tack Daniel.

[ bottle ][ 6oz ][ @tasting ][ $ ? ][ snifter ][ 10.24.15 ]
jet black, thick dense tan cream head dies quick. Strong dark roast, gummy sugar anise profile but no saison notes, the roast and sweetness is all imperial stouts. Super dry, lightly barky, gummy front palate, a little root and chocolate, faint spicing / pepperiness. Heavy roast mid palate before salty roast finish, stinging with light sugar lasting long.

Bottle, Winnipeg, MB, Canada via LC. Opaque brown, dark tan head. Balanced aroma, brown sugar, cocoa, some hop resin. Smooth texture, more chocolate and then long resin and alcohol finish. Very nice.

Heather_B (252) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Strange. Pours a dark brown with some lingering off white head. Flavor is a really bizarre hoppy stout. Smells similarly - I get some old hops superimposed on a roasty stout. But the stout itself is thin.

Quack-Duck (9368) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2015
bottle, kindly donated ba jaghana - merci beaucoup! Deep black with a dense and creamy beige-brown head. Full-bodied from the start, dark, dark malts with a touch of chocolate, coffee and dried figs and raisins. Smoooth and velvety palate. Delicious!

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Vanilla, roasty coffee, smoke, chocolate, licorice, dark cherries, raisins, plum pudding and some light Christmasy spices...all to be found in this beauty. Dark and opaque, the bounteous aroma equates wonderfully to the taste of this mysterious dichotomy of a brew. Whatever it wants to be it is a fantastic brew and should be sought after by fans of Strong Belgians and Imperial Stouts alike.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is roast and peppers. Medium mouth sweet roast, toasted grain, boozy finish, good.
