On tap on Kulminator in Antwerp. Pours black with a small khaki head on top. Aroma is--uh oh--more infected BA stout from Struise. These guys have not had a good year with their barrels. Sour apple, funky smokey peat, roast. Flavor follows and is just unbearable. Sour smokey roast and some booze. Nothing else here. Thin body with medium carbonation. After my two infected Black Damnations and now this, I won’t be putting much money into Struise BA stouts in the future. This is a known problem and they keep selling this garbage. Will have to try this again I guess. Kind of sad.

Black, in a flute-ish glass, with a light beige head. On tap at Mikkeller in SF.

Vanilla, bourbon.

Belgian stout are all too rare. Wood's an after thought, the bourbon doesn't hit like I'd expect. Leaves something to be desired, that's a small knock, though. Still, wonderfully rich malt with the right edge. Vanilla, chocolate, malt pulled together damn near perfectly.

As smooth as they come.

2012 vintage.

Pours a deep, deep brown, with a sense tan head. Cherry, balsamic, bubblegum, and light hints of dark chocolate roast form the aroma. Highly unusual. Flavor reveals similar tart cherry and vinegar, but roast malt and dark cocoa counter and dominate. The finish is slightly roast bitter. Quite complex! Banana and roasted malt round out the profile. There's a lightly phenolic character that's offputting.
