Listed as a sour at Pangaea in Sacramento . Understandable that it is hard to categorize this one but a stout it is not . Interesting to try once but I would not go back to this well again .

Poured an almost black color, probably dark brown, with minimal head and lace. Spicy, roasted malt aroma dominates my nose and there is a little bit of sweetness.
Medium bodied, smooth, almost chewy at times,, there is a vanilla like sweetness to beer while maintaining a roasted, almost coffee dry malt base and that spiciness and flavor profile which must be the tea leaves (assuming they brewed with actual tea leaves). Finishes with a spicy edge and crispness that belies the heaviness and booziness of beer.

Look: Opaque, black, even against sunlight. Bright head that just lasts in the glass until you took the last sip.

Smell: Surprised to smell floral aromas. Reminds me more of an IPA than a stout. Chocolate and malt.

Taste: IPAish, floral taste with a lot of dark chocolate and malt kicking in soon after. Lovely bitterness.

Feel: Nice carbonation, but mouth feel could be improved.

Overall: An interesting, deep Imperial Stout that should please the IPA as well as the Stouts connaisseur alike.

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

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.
