A - Pours light brown w/ a golden reddish hue. Almost like root beer. Little head which dissipates quickly, and no lacing.
S - My favorite part of this beer. Lots of sour cherry and oak aroma. There's some earth and farmhouse funk in there as well. Maybe a hint of vanilla, but no black pepper or tea aroma.
T - Sweet dark fruits up front transform to an acidic tart cherry finish. Faint hop bitterness present in the aftertaste. Can't say I taste any vanilla, black pepper, or tea.
M - Not much carbonation or body in this one. It was a 2009 bottle. I'm not sure if that had an effect on the mouthfeel.
O - This beer was not what I expected, and I feel like it's mislabeled as an Imperial Stout. However, I really like the beer itself. It reminded me a lot of a flanders red. Kinda a beginners sour beer. Enjoyed trying this beer, but I would not pay the steep price for another bottle.

very different take here, imperial stout with vanilla, tea, and pepper. have not had too much swiss beer either, so i was pumped for this. the pour is much lighter than the style norm, almost glowing red instead of black. it has a settling half inch of tan head and some really coagulated yeast bits the look rather nasty at the bottom of my wine glass. the nose smells like berries, tart ones, like cranberries, or wild yeast, definitely dont get the big bitter roasted barley here. i get vanilla in the flavor, but the contributions of the tea and pepper are less noticeable. some chocolate from the malt provides the base and a wild ale yeast cleans up a thick tart fruity finish. definitely an odd interpretation of the style, but its mostly successful, with the alcohol being well hidden and the fruit and yeast flavors being more central than they usually are in a big stout. the yeast pieces in the dregs are a little gross, but thats irrelevant in this really dynamic and delicious brew. rich and yummy, i need to try more from these guys, but man do they get expensive.
