look: 3.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - rocky marbled heard, poor lace, fair retention, no legs, opaque black w dull luster. foam slowly snakes its way up bottle neck.

Aroma- wow, bright flowers, dried cherry, coacoa, earth, clove, and cinnamon, anise, bitter chocolate, coffee, amazing coconut note from alcohol, salted caramel, lightly solvent at times, but overall amazing and in balance. Most notes are moderately strong.

Flavor - light notes of coffee cherry and lychee with wisps of herbal hop, washed out by a moderate cola character, with stronger clove and horehound in the finish. Dark caramel malt is muted by very good attenuation. Notes of hey, violet and dandelion , peak out of moderately strong aromatic coacoa character. Finish sneaks out quickly, with a light bitter chocolate aftertaste. Possibly detecting a trace of sulfur, and a barely detectable diacetyl. There does seem to be a light lactic acidity, though it is difficult to say in such a dark beer and basically a background component.

MF- medium-light bodied, with light alcohol, light sourness, medium-low carbonation,

Overall-Undeniabley Belgian. Undeniabley export stout. totally unique.

A- nice black color, Insane exploding head that filled the glass with a 1/4 bottle pour. thin lacing compared to the head.

S- Very sweet dark fruits, some cocoa and burnt sugars.

T- Just like the smell, very sweet up front, with some cocoas coming in softly in the end. Lots of complexity going on start to finish.

M- Medium body, medium tiny bubble carbonation, slick and smooth.

O- Really good, but to sweet for me to have more than 1 per sitting. The pour is outrageous and took about 5 min to finish, it actually foamed all over the desk like a mini volcano when I opened the bottle. Lots of complex flavors to keep you guessing, and overall a great beer.

A very unique stout. The flavor is quite complex, with char, dark dried fruits and yeast fighting for dominance. It took about 7 minutes to finsh the pour due to an explosive head even with a gentle pour. Just as a side note, there was more chunky residue at the bootom of this galss than any beer I've ever had.
