BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Barrel of Monks Brewing
Florida, United States

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Parade of Souls is a thick and rich black beer with the roasted flavors of a stout but the unique flavors created by Belgian yeast. It is the heaviest in body of our beers and meant to be drunk slowly while appreciating the complex flavors created by a complex malt bill and long maturation times.

This is an excellent dark beer full of flavor, the Vanilla Coconut variation is even better!

Received this in a trade last year. Finally getting around to sharing this with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark black with a one finger mocha head that fades to leave thin wisps and a thick halo.

S - Aromas of dark fruits tons of Belgian esters, really faint chocolate. The esters and yeast though and a little bit of phenols.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Massive Belgian sugars and yeast. The chocolate is somehow fainter than on the nose. Little bakers chocolate. The finish is very Belgian yeast and ester forward.

M - Mouthfeel is brightly carbonated, almost distractingly so. The alcohol is really hidden though.

O - Overall this was somewhat underwhelming. I'm not sure they wanted this level of carbonation and such as the bottle almost gushed.

Thanks to rudzud
Big fizzy foamy 1 finger head fades fairly quickly, pitch black, fair lacing

Nose fudgey chocolate, dark fruits plum fig but almost sour tart slight infected like, fig paste burnt sugar fruit thing, maybe phenols

Taste brings sweet candy very sweet and syrupy and candi sugar, thick toffee, butterscotch, fudge, little cocoa, caramel all over, Belgian yeast with phenols that are a bit icky, fruity fig paste, dulce de leche and sugar daddy candy, little booze tingle and alcohol flavor, little bitterness, yeasty and Belgian phenol like finish

Mouth is med bod not too thick, a bit syrupy, tons of tingly carbonation

Overall mixed, something was off about the yeast, and over carbonation, I think it continued fermenting in the bottle, but some promising characters

Had this beer during a visit to the brewery over the holidays. Drank from a 4 ounce snifter, part of a sampling flight. This was my favorite beer I had that day. I typically am not a huge fan of big stouts, but this beer hides the alcohol very well. It is not super thick in body, and the carbonation makes it one that is easy drinking. I wish they bottled this beer I would have happily bought a bottle or 4!
