"Double" (imperial) wheat stout.
This imperial really strikes back. From a strange country far, far away, comes the only Imperial Wheat Stout in the known universe. Once again, the Hand brewery - four guys brewing in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale - boldly goes where no brewery has gone before.

Inky black pour with a thin tan head that recedes and leaves nothing behind. Oily nose that full of roasty black malt and licorice and a touch of soy sauce. Smooth and slick flavor thats a touch of dark bittersweet chocolate, a lot of black malt, a little roast, and this inescapable tone of soy sauce thats almost ruining the whole thing for me. Slick and oily mouthfeel with booze covering up any stoutly chocolaty wheaty nuance. Just dark, licorice, and soy-saucy roast malt and booze.

Merci Guillaume pour le partage. Liquide peu mousseux la robe noire et peu liquoreuse. En versant le liquide, janticipe minceur et corps lger. Des armes de fume agressent mes narines avant mme que jaie pu approcher mon nez du verre. Sans quil sagisse ncessairement dune bire fume, jai la narine dj tanne. Mais ne sont-ce pas des armes typiques des impriales stout de cette rgion du monde? Oui, mais l a va un peu loin mon got. Fume agressive, malts carboniss, rglisse noire. Ouf. En bouche, le tout mest moins insupportable. Tel quanticip, le tout est mince et plutt lger. Jamais je ne ressens lalcool en bouche malgr un lger tournis qui sinstalle tranquillement. Amertume de caf froid importante en fin de palais, alors que les saveurs prsentes ont disparu depuis longtemps. Bon, cest lheure de senvoyer une Bruery Cuivre pour dgriser. Aprs tout, il est minuit et quart un mardi!

Black color, very solid brown head. Full body and smooth texture. Aromas of soy sauce and chocolate. Nice and very long staying bitterness, a little bit salty. Despite the 9% alcohol is not noticeable and its surprisingly easy to drink. Overall very good beer.
