look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

poured from a cold 33cl fliptop bottle.

A- dark, but light still shines through around the edges. tan head with decent head retention.

S- dominant alcohol smell, with dry dark malt.

T- alcohol comes through a lot, along with a pretty strong acidity. Maybe funk? Or just acidity from dark malts.

M- dry for a stout this strong. high carbonation.

D- easier to drink than an oil-thick imperial stout, but for that reason I don't really enjoy it as much.

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.
