Got this one at the De Molen beer shop in Bodegraven.
From a 75cl bottle into a snifter
Bottled 20 September 2013
BA imperial stout with multi-culti yeast stuff going on.
APPEARANCE: A clear brown pour looks pretty thick and yields a one finger, medium looking, tan head with decent retention. Head fades to a film and ring. Clear black body with no real carbonation. A ring remains but doesn't leave anything in the form of lacing down the glass.
SMELL: Some sour cherry notes start it off with a dose of vinegar, acid and some roasted grains. Oak and alcohol with notes of light chocolate with some zesty lemon.
TASTE: Sour and tart lemon, with some roasted notes and chocolate up front as well. Cherries and more acidic sourness into a big finish of vinegar, tart cherries and lemon zest over a bed of roasted grain. A little too much acidity for me. A bit too rough.
PALATE: Medium body and lower levels of carbonation. A touch watery on the palate perhaps, goes down fine and finishes a touch dry.
OVERALL: A bit too acidic for my palate. The idea is interesting, but I'm still not convinced a stout needs to be soured, and I don't think this was the best base stout anyways. Not something I'd bother seeking out again.
Serving type: bottle
