doublebock (558) - California, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Appearance: Dark brown cola color with healthy beige head Aroma: Hefe-like a with a slight amount of oak and caramel Taste: Chocolate and toffee with a yeasty spicy citrus finish. The body is much lighter a stout. Overall: I was hoping for some more a barrel aged or sour taste but ultimately this is more a spiced belgian ale..

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 The beer had a black color with a slight dark brown hue and a wet appearance and consistency with a very large foamy and somewhat creamy tan head with great retention, and pretty good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured some citrus fruits and spice, but also a chocolate and soft coffee tone, along with caramel and oak. The taste was had some soft chocolate and caramel tones mixed with a light bitter citrus and spice blend and a light presence of oak. It was a wet, soft beer in the mouth but had good carbonation and fizz and a slightly noticeable presence of alcohol.

750mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown / black with a tiny beige head. Nose is full of Belgian spice, some oak and slight cocoa notes. Flavour is similar, with Belgian spice and oak predominantly, with subdued cocoa notes. Almost a little metallic, but more oaky than anything. Very light-bodied for the style, but fitting due to the Belgian influence. A surprisingly strong beer from Samuel Adams.

9/17/2011. Bottle. purchased at the brewery. Pours black with a beige head. Roasted malt aromas with chocolate, licorice and Belgian yeast. Little sappy sweet from the oak, but in a nice way. Good balance.

Une autre bouteille bue lors de notre trs long souper danniversaire. Puisque cest la mode et que majoritairement du temps je bois toujours mes bires en mangeant des pogos, je garde cette concoction pour le dessert. Une fois verse, cette bire arbore une robe noire bien vivante sur laquelle japerois une petite mais belle coiffe brune. Le nez dgage rapidement des armes de fruits foncs, de rglisse et dpices. Il voque aussi des parfums de chocolat et de chne lgrement sucr. Fidle aux effluves perus lolfaction, ce stout imprial belge manifeste un bon caractre malt et rti. Il laisse aussi percevoir des houblons pics et des pointes de mlasse enrobes de rglisse. En bouche, il possde un corps souple et sa texture lgrement grasse est justement fouette par de petites bulles bien explosives. En finale, les saveurs boises sont persistantes et finissent par tre dclasses par des notes franches de rglisse rtie. Tout compte fait, dans le jeu intressant de la recherche de la familiarit molculaire, une bire au caractre fort qui se marie trs bien avec la dlicatesse des saveurs dun beau gros Jos Louis.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2013
UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 Bottle: Deep brown & dark ruby in color with a tan head that fades pretty quickly and doesnt leave any notable lacing behind. Aroma is very heavy with tons of fruity & earthy esters. Apples, grapes, sweet & malty even with a little bit of fruity tartness. Perhaps a touch of roast? But this really doesnt smell much like a stout. Mild vinous back-end. Taste is the same way, fruity & even slightly tart mid-palate. Apple skins, red grapes, sweet raisins; mild vinous & oak character plays throughout. Finish contains some sweet toffee, mild caramel, and more oak. Hint of alcohol warmth with low bitterness. Definitely not much of a "stout" but for a Belgian ale, its decent.

THis is a super fruity stout. Belgium trippel style which is a terrible combination. I really don't like this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light fruit aroma and medium palate. Might need longer in bottle. A little underwhelming. Leave your pretensions at the door.
