11.2 oz brown swing-top bottle. Brewed with cane sugar, Sarawak pepper, Russian tea, and Bourbon vanilla.

It pours a dense ink black with an amazing looking dual tone caramel/tan head. There is a line going through it that separates the two different colors. It is thick and foamy with a bit of froth. It recedes decently quickly leaving just a little lacing but a nice froth atop the beer.

This beer doesn't say it is barrel aged but it kind of smells like it. It is probably form the nice bit of vanilla you get. The tea and the pepper bring a nice spice to the mix. This is above a nice chocolatey stout base.

The flavor is interesting. It is a bit too tangy than what I normally liek for the style and perhaps a bit sweet but it has a nice flavor. The sweetness levels as you go. There is a nice dose of coffee and smoke, rich sweet chocolate, spiciness some dark fruit, and residual cane sugar. The alcohol isn't completely hidden, but not a burden. The tea plays a role in the after taste with a nice dryness. This one has some amazing and interesting flavors.

It is a bit thin for an imperial stout, but the mouthfeel is still pretty decent it has a unique dryness in the finish perhaps form the tannic tea.

It is kind of a wonky beer, it looks and smells amazing, and tastes pretty good too but it is a bit on the odd side for mouthfeel.

A- Nice chocolate brown with a large two finger almond colored head. Chunky brown lacing `
S- Smell is slightly sour, malty and spicy.
T- Smooth pungent and slightly cheesy. Has a really deep flavor profile, toasted malt and vanilla, it has some smoke and sweet to it and everything just melds together.
M- The mouth feel is super smooth and thick, slides over the tongue and doesn’t coat the mouth. Little to no carbonation.
O- Really enjoyable and drinkable beer. The flavors are so different than what I’m used to for a stout. The flavors run deep and there is a lot of thought and talent behind this beer. Delightful

An interesting imp. stout brewed with pepper and tea. Aroma is lots of tea and malt. Look is nice with great tan head and awesome lacing. Taste is slight with pepper and tea and balances ok with the imperial stout flavor that you would expect. Not awesome, but very very good

This is infected. Rancid and bitter!

Tap @ Moeder Lambic.

Black color, fantastic, long lasting beige head.

Earthy aromas of black coffee, tobacco, bready malts, hints of burned toffee and even floral hops.

Flavor is defined by an unique vinous touch, which creates a little confusion on the palate at first, but notes of caramel and toffee lure into a slick, smooth experience, absorbed by bitter chocolate, black pepper and wood. Roasted malt and coffee notes lead to a long bitter finish, which gets softened by a spicy vanilla touch. Despite of all the different flavors, the beer’s body doesn’t actually remind me of an imperial stout, but has a perfect balance of all those sublte flavors, which get coated up in a very pleasant way.
