Got this one at a beer shop in Belgium somewhere

From a bottle into a snifter

Apparently the idea was to make a low abv stout, but these guys ended up starting the boil then passing out for 6 hours. Out came a 12.8% stout.

APPEARANCE: Clear black pour yields a two finger, thicker looking, creamy, light mocha colored head with great retention. Black body with no carbonation evident. Eventually fades to a full bubbly wisp and leaves some nice lacing down the glass. Ring remains leaving some nice splotchy lacing as the glass empties.

SMELL: Bolder nose of roasted barley, sweet cream, dark chocolate and some butterscotch aromas.

TASTE: Roasted barley, dark chocolate and some toffee sweetness up front. A big and lingering finish is roasted, sweet, with vanilla cream, toffee, some light leather and a big shot of bitter, dark chocolate and coffee as well. Very flavorful and bold as well.

PALATE: Fuller body and medium-lower levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, silky as well, goes down smooth and finishes silky and sticky on the plate. Some heat lingers.

OVERALL: I guess late night brew sessions and passing out during the boil can lead to wonderful things. This is a full bodied, flavorful and interesting imperial stout with a wonderful look to boot. Something I’d be happy to drink on a regular basis if it were available. Another good black To OL beer. Give it a shot if you see it. Recommended.

Little body, too hoppy, a bit too burnt. I can feel the roastedness but not chocolate , vanila, liquorice or sweetness.
Quite disappointing, it lacks interest.
