A - Pours not as thick as a stout should be. Black body with no head to speak of with an aggressive pour.

S - Chocolate, licorice, belgian yeast strains & oak. Odd combo in my opinion.

T - Dark, slightly tart fruits that develops into some malts with dark chocolate, bitter finish.

M - Light body and very low carbonation.

O - Funky, kind of tart stout. Odd mix of flavors that just don't mesh well for me.

Poured from a 2011 vintage 750 ml corked and caged bottle into a Weyerbacher branded tulip glass

Pours an opaque black with a dark brown one and half finger fizzy head. The head quickly disspates, no lacing. Earthiness, some dark fruit, Belgian yeast, a hint of roastiness and boozy alcohol on the nose. Opens with dark fruit joined by yeasty esters and finishes with alcohol and even more alcohol. Wow, is this hot and it even has a year on it. Fairly thin for an imperial stout, medium bodied slick with a bit of creaminess. It seems that most of the imperial stout qualities except for the contribution of some dark fruit flavors is overwhelmed by the Belgian yeast and the entire brew is overwhelmed by the ever-present strong alcohol. With the exception of the nose this brew seems to lack balance all the way through. Unfortunately, the marriage of Belgian yeast and other qualities and an imperial stout is an unhappy one here.

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged bottle into a goblet

A: Pours a completely opaque chocolate colored black. There is a decent tan head which fades to a thin, oily cap and ring of foam.

S: Some notes of Belgian yeast, clove and estery alcohol soar over a deep, roasted malt aroma. A little bit of fruit mixes in with the dark malt scents.

T: An interesting combination of flavors. The roasted flavors are more prominent than the Belgian flavors; the opposite of the aroma. Bittersweet chocolate, plum and fig. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, even as it warms. Finish moves from stout to Belgian spices which linger.

M: Smooth and creamy. A little sticky and next to no alcohol heat.

O: Great beer. Pretty much the best of an imperial stout and Belgian ale. Well hidden alcohol makes for a surprisingly potent drink.
