Pours dark with ruby highlights. Nice loopy lace.

Aroma is fruity belgian yeast. Less stout, more belgian.

Taste is definitely more on the belgian side, with a hint of oak and wood alongside a touch of heat. Very subtle and complex, but most certainly a sipper.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. 4/17

Pours dark brown, almost black, with thick creamy inch head that sits atop like whipped cream. Woodsy nose with raisins. Slight bourbon nose too. Whisky oak taste, boozy, but thin for a stout. Coffee, maple, plums, all kinds of flavors intertwined. Hearty carbonation. Borders on barleywine. Robust.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Dark brown, almost black. Creamy head with good retention and a few lace spots.

Mildly roasted flavor with sweet dark fruits. Assertive Brett-like tartness.

Just a hint of roasted malt suggesting dark chocolate and toasted oats. Prune and black currant sweetness. Mildly tart yeast flavor. Well balanced.

Super smooth throughout. Dense body. Plenty of tiny bubbles bring the complexities to the taste buds. Malty, yeasty texture.

Good stuff. Complex and tasty.
