2012 poured at Struise

Black as night with a dark brown head which disappears into a ring that holds well. Leaves dark film on the glass. Looks imposing.

Chocolate, graham cracker, wood, slight sweet touch of bourbon. Alcohol is hidden well but not absent for such a ridiculous beer. Wow. Some dark fruit. It's got some sweetness to it. Not much roast more along the big chocolate with dark fruit and roasty accompaniment.

Wow thick and smooth with more carbonation than you would think. Works great for this beer. It doesn't feel extreme heavy, but just like how a big stout should.

A lot more drinkable than I was expecting so that was great. The 8cl pour is perfect. I would love more but there are so many beers at Struise you must drink that it works.
Had a 2014 afterwards and it's definitely hotter than the 2012 but still delicious.
