This is the first belgian ale I've had and the name makes sense. It has the roasty stout notes, but also has the characteristics of a begian beer. The yeast they use gives it the smell and some tast of a belgian trippel. I imagine if you mixed an expedition stout with final absolution, it would taste similar to this. Not my favorite style of stout, but if you like belgian beers you'll probably love it.

Black, heavy and thick looking. Aroma is malt,coffee,and what seems to be fruit and the alcohol is noticable. Despite high abv and being able to clearly taste it they seem to have still hidden it fairly well as it doesn't take away from the rest of the elements. This is sort of a dark ale meets stout and it really works well,I will definitely look for this again. Far from a session beer but perfect after dinner and a long busy day as it kind of requires you to sit and savor it

Deep, dark brown/black color. Just looks thick. Smell is chocolaty coffee. You can taste the alcohol; which usually bothers me, but in this case works. Almost like rum in chocolate milk. Feels thick and smooth, but a little burny on the way down. Overall a good beer. I will have one to kick off the night and then switch to something a little lighter.

Pours a lovely velvety chocolate black with a head of beige, 1 finger. It fades fast due to the alcohol content.

Smells like a chocolate covered banana with some Rum Liqeur nearby. Mouth-watering.

The Weyerbacher "nail polish" element is there but kept in check very well; I emphasize on this because that's always the main thing I worry about with their stouts. Flavors include torched bananas, caramel, chocolate, toffee, torched figs, and some light coffee ground to balance things out.

Feel is burning, all the way down. Light a match down my throat baby! Some light-handed carbonation that lends prickly stabs here and there but mostly contributes to a velvety feel overall.

Tiny is a great Belgian Stout you should pick up if you can. Rich, dark fruits meet bright fruits and toffee-coffee richness.

So. Belgian imperial stout. Looks like a stout. No head. No lacing. Coffee black. Smells of fruit with hints of coffee. Yeah fruit. Belgian remember. Bananas. Taste again is fruity up front but has coffee notes in back. Almost a bread you taste on the very back hand. Feel is really nice. Full bodied. Nice. Overall a nice beer that I've 3 more to put away. Abv you can feel. It's hidden pretty well but it sneaks up on ya. Look out!

Edit* Bumped up the taste do to the pairing of a pork chop. Really brings out the beer!

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with light red hues close to the bottom of the beer. A slim concave off white head dissipated and left some light messy lacing. The smell started off with a light Belgian-esque spice (muted clove - seems slightly cooked). It then opens up with light chocolate tones and then an earthy sort of raisin. The taste has the same sort of "cooked clove" more or less running into the chocolate tones to be semi-sweet but remain slightly spicy. Light raisin becomes subtle. The aftertaste is only about the "cooked clove." On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sipping quality about it. Carbonation runs low to allow the ABV to take the lead on my tongue - its not too "boozy hot" but one can tell it is there. Overall, imperial stout - yes! With a Belgian twist - yes again. Would I have this again, most likely.

A good, solid imperial stout. Lightly carbonated, but not flat. Very flavorful, without an overabundance of hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Looks like coffee in the glass. No head, no lacing - but with the high ABV, that's somewhat to be expected. Good flavors - earthy, hints of mocha, a bit of acridness, but not in a bad way.

I've had this ale before, and I will definitely buy it again.

Look: Nice deep motor oil color. Brown head that dissipates quickly. Lots of carbonation present.

Smell: Wow amazing smell. Grilled meats... like a BBQ smell. Tobacco, chocolate, toffee, booze. Has a roasty aroma I've never quite experienced before. Excellent.

Taste: Rich tobacco, toffee, roasted malts, Belgian influence is evident. Dark fruits and alcohol taste. Very good taste for almost a 12% beer. Smooth and sweet. Summer night sipper.

Feel: Smooth

Overall: Very good. First of the style I've had and I bet i'll be buying this again at some point. Going to cellar a bottle for a while too. 8/10.
