750ml bottle served in a snifter.

pours a thick, jet black tone while yielding a solid 1" mocha head that fades fairly quickly. a little patchy lacing.

the nose doesn't impress me very much. it's not bad, just a bit more muted than the bold, robust aroma i was expecting. notes of chocolate, roasted malt, and alcohol. some faint elements of dark fruits in the background.

flavor is an improvement. chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruit, molasses, belgian yeast, and coffee along with a big booziness. also has a certain tartness to it. certainly interesting.

rich, full bodied mouthfeel with medium carbonation. the definition of what i'd call chewy.

overall a definite sipper, and a tasty one at that. i'm not head over heels but it is good. booze is not as well-hidden as i would like. on the plus side it's pretty reasonably priced, all things considered.

reviewed from notes on 12/30/2011.

poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: black bodied beer is a medium brown head thats almost 2 fingers thick. decen lacing on the glass.

Smell: little bit of roast, little chocolate, and some fruitiness/spicy belgian yeast notes.

Taste: this beer has a lot of the normal stout flavors including moderate chocolate sweetness and a mild roasty coffee. Some spicy fruity notes from the belgian yeast. It follows the nose to a tee.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Creamy beer really nice mouthfeel. best part of this beer.

Overall: This is a really solid beer! Belgian stouts are a nice change up from the big heavy stouts. Only had a few Belgian Imperial stouts so far, but Belgian Yeti is my favorite so far. Tiny is not far behind it though.

Ha ha, very funny Weyerbacher..."Tiny" is HUGE!

Bomber, caged and corked, it was a bitch to get the cork out and she opened with a fairly huge "POP"

Dead of night BLACK, huge dark tan head, fades slowly to a velvety fine film, thick collar and ample bands and bits of lacing.

Nose is chock full of black coffee, bitter chocolate and dark malts.

Nose flavors carry on to the palate, with lots of dark chocolate, tastes and feels like a thick bourbon milk shake, loaded with rich flavors.

Silky smooth and thickly yummy on the tongue and coating the mouth.

Fine night capper or with a rich and gooey chocolate dessert.

Alcohol well hidden somehow.

Well done, huge stout fans rejoice

I poured this alcoholic beverage into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was black as aces and poured no head whatsoever. It looked like tar sitting there in my glass. The smell was strong coffee and thats what it looked like. No Belgian taste which did not bother me at all but whew!!! What a alcohol hit. Way over the top burn. I could not even drink it like it was and had to cut it with a lager to get the expensive brew saved from the sink. I will not buy again.

2010 vintage from the cellar

A - jet black with dark mocha head, slight lacing

S - Belgian chocolate, some cherry, caramel, coffee

T - a bit sweet and definite Belgian yeast notes. Bitter coffee finish. Not super complex but decent

M - very hot still. Full bodied and great carb but man this thing burns

O - solid but unspectacular. Not as much Belgian character as I expected but I'm happy about that. I can't get over the heat though and dont plan on trying this again.
