COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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.

Bottle (500 ml), split 2-ways. Pitch black with a thick and easy to revive medium creamy brown head, good retention, leaving some lacing. Aroma is mostley chocolate forward with light smokey notes, molasses and dark fruits. Taste is semi-sweet with dark chocolate, dark/red fruits, molasses, hints of smoke, vanilla notes and light ashes notes. Medium body. Moderate-medium carbonation. Smooth and a bit oily mouthfeel. Berries and chocolate finish. Not super complex, but flavorful and enjoyable chocolate forward RIS. Lack a bit of body to be among the best of the style.

Pours a pitch black color with medium wbeige head. Aroma has roasted malts, spices, dark chocolate, coffee and wheat. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Taste follows the nose, roasted coffee and toasted malts, bitter chocolate, spices, wood, smoke and a moderate umami backbone, finishing with a slightly tartness (I guess from the wheat).

En mørk øl, og en fin smag af chokolade, og stor dybde i øllen. Lidt ristet.

piwnepodroze (541) - POLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Mam wrażenie, że z tym piwem coś jest nie tak. Zarówno w zapachu pojawiła się niepokojąca nutka, tak w smaku było nieco rozklekotane. Piwo jest mocno palone, delikatnie karmelowe, jakoby przyprawowe, ziołowe, a nad całością unosi się nuta sosu sojowego. Owoce są mocno schowane za całością, a piwo - choć ciekawe - to nie robi jakiegoś oszałamiającego wrażenia.

BeerdedDave (2010) - Beckley, USA - OCT 18, 2016
2009; described by the waiter in the Belgian café that I tried it in as a “black hole in a glass that just sucks up light”; very dark; slightly smoky alcoholic aroma; alcoholic slightly roasted malt flavor, a great dessert beer
