look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

The beer pours in an almost black color with no head.

The aroma is a bit boring of some leather, some roasty notes, and a strange off chocolate. A bit of spice. Not much sweetness in there.

The flavor follows again with a lack of roasted malt, some coffee and chocolate. There's certainly some muted vanilla with a tea dryness on the end.

The body is super watery for this big of a beer and it lacked any carbonation.

A really disappointing beer and really pushes how an imperial stout can be done so very wrong.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Sure, this bottle made my jaunt to Chevy Chase a bit more expensive than I anticipated, but it just sounded so good... Anyway, this stuff pours a deep onyx topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises blackstrap molasses, roasted malts, light acrid coffee, mild anise, faint hints of various dark fruits, and a light wisp of smoke billowing around every now and again. The taste brings in more of the same, with a bit more of a fruity component (not enough to make things all that strange, though) and a new vein of what seems like tea. The body is a hefty medium, with a rather light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a very nice stout, one that makes me wanna seek out more from this brewery, despite the seemingly higher pricetags.

Poured as part of the "We Want the Funk" flight at Trappist Provisions from a 22oz bottle into a 6oz wine glass. Consumed "05/08/13." Review is from my notes.

Pours a blackened, nearly opaque color with a greyish head that immediately gives this the appearance of cold mocha brew. There's a surprising amount of bubbles that glide to the top and that remind me that this is indeed a beer, in spite of the viscous, nearly fortified wine looking appearance. Alcohol legs are huge on this one. In a way, almost looks like a puréed plum drink, if it were not for the alcohol and carbonation. Just like other beers from BFM, looks great.

The aroma is chock filled with many flavors that gives this an odd yet surprisingly fascinating profile overall. There's an immediate tinge of plums and raisins that is followed by a soured, woody, vinous profile, and then immediately melds into roasted cocoa, vanilla, light floral notes, tea, and dried leaves. The soured flavor lingers on, and with the wood resembles tobacco or a slightly leathery flavor. Very earthy overall, yet filled with a combo of ripe and faded tannins from the malts, wood, and delicate yet highly mineral-like hop profile. Very refreshing, not too explosive, and integrated to the point of holding interest in the long run.

The flavor is immediately soured plums combined with an earthy, slightly smoky flavor imparted from the wood. Then, these flavors become slightly more tarty and meld with leather, cherries, Port wine-like fortified flavors, and a crisp yet juicy dark malty bready finish. Alcohol is well hidden, but the sweetness is undeniably there. The soured juiciness of the fruits, as well as the light chocolate, black tea, and leafy flavors are all very well integrated, and allow each other space in the long run. Carbonation is good, as indicated from the very beginning. The finish is very long lasting, and while tarty, it does not induce salivation by any means. Not a chore to drink at all - very complex but well assembled.

BFM really shows here how a barrel aged soured stout should be made. Dark fruit forward, slightly roasted, tart and crisp, filled with tannins that slowly open up in a long aftertaste, and ultimately, balance that makes this drinkable for pretty much any occasion. I think this beer deserves more love than it's been getting here. This is not a style that is common by any means, but it's one that I'm starting to enjoy more as they turn out this way.

Weird beer. The bottle says it's a 2009 batch. This means the beer could possibly be four years old at this point. I don't have much experience with aging beers so I can't really comment how this really effects the beer. It mostly makes me second guess everything.

Overall I liked it. Smell is pretty sour (vinegar-ish). And the sourness comes over in taste as well, but it's clearly not a intended to be marketed like a sour. I attribute it to the tea adjuncts. Malts are strong in the after taste. The alcohol is noticeable but tasteful.

Carbonation is off. It poured odd, like water. Mouthfeel is where it's lacking. Too sticky.

Not going to buy this again, but I liked trying it. I'm a sucker for pop-top bottles.

I like to compare beer to metal bands. If this beer was a heavy metal band it would be Furze: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aMz5F3qJec

A - Dark brown-black with a thin finger of frothy off-white head. Fades quickly.

S - Chocolate and dark caramel malts, cherries and other dark fruits, coffee, vanilla, black pepper, tea, black licorice, and some booze.

T - Chocolate and dark caramel malts, cherries and other dark fruits, coffee, vanilla, tea, a bit of sourness, black licorice, molasses, and some booze.

M - Medium-minus bodied, mild carbonation. Smooth with a sweet, warming finish.

D - Interesting Imperial Stout. Flavors well balanced, but body and carbonation off.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2oz pop top bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a near pitch black color. Some good tan bubbles formed.

(S)- A very sharp whiff of a vinegar-like tobacco that quickly flows into some rich raisin, vanilla, and cocoa combo. Even hints at a black tea component which I quite like. A subtle smokiness at the end. Ever so slightly odd, but complex and inviting.

(T)- A unique beer here. Bits of bitter black tea, raisin, molasses, leather, and a subtle tart; almost acidic kick at the end. Very similar to the smell really.

(M)- A mellow carbonation level. A really different balance to it that is definitely not the norm for the style with its subtle sharp twang and almost earthy qualities, but at the same time its not necessarily as sweet as expected either. Very unique.

(O)- Definitely kind of an odd ball of a beer for the style, but somehow it just works for me as slightly weird as it is. Its not sour in the sense of the word, but there are hints behind some of its dry, earthy qualities. Had lots of enjoyment out of this nonetheless.

2009 11.2 oz bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip style glass. During the pour, the liquid comes out root beer brown (minus the carbonation). Once everything settles it looks dark brown, almost black, when it's sitting at the bottom of the glass. Small tan colored cap that dissipates quite a bit, but leaves a ring around the glass for the whole session.

Very interesting in the nose on this one. Big but not huge malt backbone here. Classic stout tones, more chocolate than coffee. Hints of vanilla and what seems like bourbon, but I don't think this was barrel aged, so maybe it's just the vanilla. Call me crazy but I think I can smell the tea it says its brewed with. Earthy pepper tone and some slight tartness, like a dry red wine.

Taste is a slight step above the smell. Plenty of roasted malt and more sweet than bitter chocolate. Some alcohol.bourbon notes, vanilla and leads into a black tea flavor. There are also some tones of some dark fruits as well. Dark and complex, not the Belgian yeast flavors I was expecting, which was nice.

Mouthfeel is good, lighter than I anticipated. Good carbonation level, well balanced and pretty smooth. The age held up very nicely. Good beer, glad I finally cracked it open. Thanks John for the recommendation.

Notched date is Jan 2014.

Huge POP from the swingtop cap as bubbles spew forth from this gusher. Dark brown body, TONS of off-white head.

Smells like an Oude Bruin, wtf? Intense, soured brown ale yeast. Weird, not good.

Taste is along the same lines: mild sourness, minimally roasted, spices galore. So strange, not particularly good. I'd never guess this was a stout base, and I wouldn't buy this myself.

Pours a one finger off-white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Deep mahogany almost black color, ton of yeast left in bottle. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Oak & molasses nose and flavor is smokey oak and burnt molasses, tart finish. Not the usual imp stout. Higher ABV is hidden. $7.99 for a flip top 330ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

This is an excellent beer that while it certainly has some qualities of an imperial stout, is entirely it's own thing.

What I really appreciate about it is the fact that you can clearly taste the adjuncts (tea, peppers) melded together with a clean sourness.

A very strange beer but well balanced and the drink ability is unreal. The 10 ish abv is not apparent at all. The bottle I had was from a recent bactch...

You can't and won't appreciate this if you go into it exclusively looking for the rich dark chocolate, roasty, coffee notes that you find in the typical Impy Stout category; but there in there in addition to the unique sourness.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Just to be clear, I am not reviewing this as an Imperial Stout because, regardless of what it says on the label, this is a strong dark sour ale, which I think is really cool.

Dark brown and not particularly opaque, decent carbonation at first, but no real head and it was spent relatively quickly, especially as this is meant to be savored.

Smell threw me for a loop - tart cider, musty blackberry. Very interested. Sips are indeed complex: noticeably of the pear that i was surprised to find on the label later - now i want to make a dark sour with pears in the secondary! Thin molasses flavor, the tea comes in and out, not sure if that's a light grassy hop or the vanilla.

Dry, remarkably drinkable for 10+. Interesting and different beer worth trying. But definitely not an imperial stout.

Pours a bright mahogany color but settles much darker, with a modest tan head. Aroma has quite a lot of raisins, with some tart red fruit and a load of dark grains. The vanilla also comes through, albeit mildly, almost like a Sees candy when coupled with the more chocolatey notes. Flavor recalls export stout more than imperial stout, with a dark bready malt profile and only a secondary roastiness. The pepper is obvious both up front and in the finish, but it remains a light accent. Surprisingly tart and fruity mid-palate with grapes, raisins and even a little citrus. The tea comes through not in flavor but in mouthfeel; it adds a vanishing dryness bordering on astringency. The vanilla is again mild --if you take a quick gulp you might get a bit of round sweetness but if you’re swishing it around looking for nuances, the other flavors overpower it. Medium body, appropriate for the flavor, with little-to-no alcohol present. Bottom line: This imperial stout is rather atypical, which makes it endearing and challenging to a palate that’s accustomed to coffee/chocolate bombs. The label calls it "Extremely Complex" and I agree. Definitely give this one a shot.

A – Dark, semi-black body with cola highlights. Fine-bubbled head is thick and creamy with nice retention and good lace.

S – Cranberry, white grape, and a huge note of granny smith apples. Slightly sour twang. Brown sugar and booze as it warms.

T – The opening is bright and acidic, but strangely salty. The center minerally and malty with a mellow fruitiness of tart pear, plum and cranberry. A tart, peppery, lingering finish is dry and loaded with tannin.

M – Over carbonated for the style. Medium body.

O – An interesting brew, but the sourness just didn't work well in this particular flavor profile.

A - Pours mocha brown, still can see through it, not much head. Not much lace.

S - Faint bitter cocoa, some sweet malt. Not much in general.

T - Thin, a bit astringent. Medicinal at end. Not going very well so far.

M - Light body, low carb, not very good balance.

D - At 10 bucks for a 12 oz beer, this on kinda is on the sucky side.

Beer bottle (33 cl., batch 2010), purchased from Clem (Nantes) and tasted in 2011. (Review #1100).

Appearance : dark red color, with tan foamy head.
Smell : roasted malt, spicy and peppery aromas.
Taste and mouthfeel : roasted malt flavours, caramel and chocolate, with vinous note in finish (rather acidic).
Drinkability : a very good beer in the style Imperial Stout . Drink at cellar temperature :-). Made with cane sugar, sarawak peper, russian tea and Bourbon vanilla (La Réunion).

Note from Clément : it's possible to find differences in taste according to the vinous brews or chocolate.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

This is an 11.2 oz swing top bottle. Batch 2009. It was $8.49 from Beer Run.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, lake water brown color with almost no head. Maybe one or two spots of lacing. Pretty pitiful appearance for an imperial stout.

Smell: Very strange. Its primarily a sweet, slightly chocolatey smell and lots of spicy tea. Swirling seems to bring out the black pepper a bit. There's a little bourbon, and also a little leather and tobacco. Very little roast. It gets points for trying, not really for succeeding.

Taste: Just weird. Lots of flavors, but weird. Almost completely devoid of any roasted malt flavors. Slight chocolate and coffee. The black pepper is quite pronounced. Tea flavor is also pretty pronounced. The label says "extremely complex." That doesn't necessarily mean good.

Mouthfeel: Its just thin and dull. Undercarbonated too.

Overall: Not bad or off putting, but a cluttered mess that in almost no way resembles an imperial stout. Can't taste the 10% abv though.

2009 vintage.

My first beer from Switzerland.

Pours a murky dark brown with a 1 inch light tan head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. Light penetrates at the bottom of the glass but not on the top near the head. Wavy lines of lacing stick to the glass on the drink down. Visible chunks of sediment are visible in the beer. Smell is of dark fruits, spiced chai tea, and some sour/funky aromas. Taste is of sour dark fruits, dark roasted malt, and some vanilla/tea flavors on the finish. These tea flavors create a mild bitterness on the palate after each sip. A pretty good carbonation level with small, crisp bubbles on the tongue and in the throat. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is somewhat different than other imperial stouts I have had before.

Wanted to give this one a shot, The description on the label sounded like it would be pretty impressive. I poured the bottle out and it was a nice deep brown color with a decent looking head on it. The lacing was light and didn't really stick too well. The had some roasted malt aromas mixed with a nice dose of herbal aromas too. The taste of the beer wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be. I found it to be a little off balance and just kind of confusing. The mouthfeel had a decent thickness to it with a light carbonation. Overall I was a little bummed by this beer. I was expecting a lot more and nothing really came out of this one for me. It's drinkable but not really memorable.

Brown glass swingtop bottle poured into Weihenstephan weissbier glass in Antwerp, Belgium. Reviewed live. Bottle label identifies the ABV as 10.276%, not 2.8% (give them a break; they're swiss).

A: Beautiful tan colour creamy thick head of seven fingers (keep in mind this is a weissiber glass) and brilliant retention. Solid black colour.

Sm: Sour lambic-esque esters. That's it. Not what I expected for the style, but it's more interesting than problematic. A moderate strength scent.

T: Sour ester hops alongside slight nut hops and a full barley body. Fairly complex but a bit off. Poorly balanced and built for the style. I detect absolutely no black pepper whatsoever. Vanilla may be present, but if so it's buried.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Complementary of the flavours of the body.

Dr: Not what's expected for the style, and not a good beer. Worth a go for lambic fans maybe, but don't expect it to be the type of imperial stout an imperial stout fan would enjoy. Overpriced as well. In fairness, it does cover its high ABV well.

Thanks to smoked for sharing.

Poured into a snifter, this brew appears a dark brown color, cloudy in appearance when held to the light. A tan cap forms and fades fairly quickly to a thin layering across the top. Some spotty lace sticks to the glass when swirled which also revives the head just slightly.

The smell of this brew is pungent with a scent of tea. There is fruity alcohol esters present along with the spice of black pepper and lemon. Very tangy brew with a completely unique nose. As it warms, more fruity scents evolve like apple with some lactic character.

The taste is mildly peppery with a tangy inclusion of alcohol coupled with a flavor of tea. Quite an unusual experience of flavors that is interesting. It is lightly lactic across the back with tangy fruity flavors. The peppery quality mixed with the seemingly tartness of this brew makes the finish crisp and unusual for a imperial stout.

This is a medium bodied brew with modest to light level of carbonation. Quite an unusual and interesting mix of ingredients and flavors here. Quite tangy for the style with a light wild aspect to it. It is worth a try but not something I could see mused drinking more than a glass of.

Decently lively pour yields a thin , fine tan head that recedes quickly into some lacing. Dark brown translucent body.

Some oak on the nose, and maybe a trace of peat. No trace that I can perceive of the pepper, vanilla, or tea (though I'm congested), so we'll see.

Definitely black pepper on the taste, right up at the front. This was served warmish, close to room temperature; should've been colder (tried it cooler, and some of the bitterness disappears). There's a bit of tannic bitterness (thanks to the tea), but the tea lends little other taste. I'm not getting the vanilla either, though there's a trace of oak... a bit vegetal.

Mouthfeel is standard, pretty par for the course, but nice.

This is an interesting one; Flemish sour plus some extra fun stuff thrown in. It wants to be refrigerated, and I could see this as versatile for food pairings; salad, pretty much any kind of cheese, even meat or fish. The label says dark chocolate, and it would probably go well with that too.

I had this one a few years back. I remember being really indifferent about it. I remember knowing it was a stout but seemed to have very few stout charactertistics. So we'll see if several years will have changed my opinion on it. Poured into a tulip. This one pours a dark cola brown and sits with about a finger of tan head on top. It settles down to a thin layer of foam with sticky lace.

The bottle says it's brewed with black pepper, vanilla beans and vanilla. That being said I definatly get vanilla in this. And lots of it. It's got a little bit of an zesty orange aroma to it, which is something that seems a bit off. I immagine it's coming from the tea. This has a little bit of a fudgey aroma but I'd say this can't seem to get a focus together on the aroma.

Kind of a bitter flavor on this. It's really lacking the roasty flavor that I would expect from an imperial stout. It seems a bit fruity too. Again I would immagine it's from the tea.

This body on this is kind of light. Especially for the style. Fair enough carbonation.

When beers add stuff like pepper and tea I really wonder what they add. I wonder if the beer would be good without those bells and whistles. This is an example of one that I think would be if it was more straight forward. Maybe a vanilla stout. I've had worse beers but when it comes down to it, I'll be pouring this down the drain.

2008 vintage. This was a random grab from the back in the cooler. My name is Al so I had no problem with opening a beer with the name Cuvee Alex Le Rouge. It poured a little light for the style, a dark brown with a light beige head. The aromas were very surprising. The label said it contained tea, pepper, and vanilla beans yet the nose was almost all citrus fruits. It was heavy on the oranges and grapefruits before becoming a very leafy tea. The flavors were an interesting blend of bitter chocolate, funk, grass, major tea leaves, and a nice black pepper finish. It was really interesting how the pepper took a back seat until the aftertaste too. It drank a little light for the style, but pretty smooth overall. I thought this beer was interesting and that's what I was aiming for so I'll mark this random selection as a success.

On cask at the BBT in Palm Bay. Pours a dark brown/black with a thin tan head that leaves little to no lacing.

Nose is dark fruit with some sour cherry and alcohol

Taste is dark fruits, sour cherry, vanilla some pepper and alcohol.

Not a lot of carbonation, with a very light mouthfeel for a stout. Alcohol, while present is pretty well hidden for 10.3%

A very good beer, not what you are expecting from an Imp Stout, though.

11.2 oz swing top into a Duvel tulip. Batch 2009, "Extremely Complex."

A: An aggressive pour yields a fine, tan head that settles relatively quickly into a collar with a few islands of bubbles remaining. The body is hazy--I like the yeast--but pretty clearly a deep, dark red-brown, rather than the expected pitch black. Pretty, but more in line with a dubbel or quad.

S: An excellent nose--bourbon and vanilla are definitely prominent. I'm not sure if I'm imagining some of the pepper the bottle indicates they used, but there's something slightly zippy going on. A hint of floral note might be the tea.

T: It actually tastes more stout-like than it looks, but not by much. There is a distinct coffee note, and the tart, tangy notes remind me of a great cup of fresh Intelligentsia or somesuch coffee, if a little stronger than that. There is a slight tingle of pepper. I wish the bourbon vanilla came through more in the taste. Overall, it tastes great, but this isn't an Imperial stout. I am torn.

M: Low carbonation, and not really enough unfermentable carbs to give that characteristic chew and opaque body. Like a dubbel/quad, but undercarbonated. Booze is utterly invisible on the tongue, which is nice.

O: Overall, I really like this beer. But if I'm to judge it to style, it's way off base. It is, as advertised, "complex;" I don't know if I'd qualify it as "extremely" so, but it's certainly nice. At 7.49 for the bottle, it's worth it as a one-off, but certainly not an every day drinker. Worth it if you're into interesting additions or experiments; not worth it at all if you're a stout person. I really can't judge this well.
