Nice Trois Dames specimen but I was expecting a bit more from an Imperial Stout.
A: Deep caramel color with a medium bubbled beige head when poured. Reasonable retention. Dissipates leaving some lacings around. A thin beige layer remains for some time
S: Sweet and sour (bit orange acid). Roasted malts and plums. Spicy end
T: Sweet upfront. Roasted malts. Plums. Fresh hops. A bit sour. Nice bitterness
M: Medium body and carbonation. No alcohol

Aromas of malt and coffee with not sweet scents. Pours darkdark brown with tight thick tan head, light lacing. Sharp sour bite with well balanced dry toast flavors that work well together. Oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Loooong finish. Nice SinH4 (6393) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2017
Bottle, 6.5℅, thanks derA! Brown color with beige head. Aroma is brown malts, chocolate, molasses, toffee, some liquorice. Taste is chocolate, liquorice, molasses, earthy, a bit roasted and some brown sugar. Slightly watery mouthfeel, high but soft carbonation. Not bad, but not excellent. Nickls (2608) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Thinner slightly tan head on a very dark, reddish brown color that has some orange highlights around. Some light spiciness in the aroma, some light fruit, faint hint of citrus and some yeastiness. Tastes a bit sweeter than in the aroma, but lots of flavor does show up after quite a muted aroma. Nice wintery spice, touch of fig and toast. Nicely warming. Mediumish body with vibrant carbonation. Little syrupy, but in a nice way. Really comes through with the taste.
