Notes: Light bodied but intensely rich, Vexed challenges the concept of a traditional stout. Unconventionally combining the refreshing qualities of a Saison with an Imperial Stout aged on coffee, cacao, vanilla, cinnamon, and oak. Highly controversial and much debated, vexed will leave your thoughts in turmoil.

A well executed take on a Mexican stout / saison hybrid

750 bottle poured into surly darkness snifter glass..a bit of a gusher on the initial pour
Look: Super dark.. a black hole
Smell: roasty chocolate leads the way, some dark fruits on the back end
Taste: bitter chocolate, smokiness , figs
Feel: medium body, not too heavy, more carbination than I'd want from a stout, but otherwise easy drinking. Whatever the ABV is, it's well hidden..a soild beer from these new brewers out of Queens..looking forward to see what they release next

Very impressed with this new brewery!

A fantastic imperial stout that packs a punch with it's ABV. Has an awesome nose of coffee, chocolate and vanilla and a great chewy mouthfeel once it warms up. Looking forward to further offerings from Iconyc!

The beer comes in a dark black color with a big fluffy medium brown head.

The aroma offers sweet chocolate, vanilla, sweet dark fruit, dried dates, raisin, some peppery spice.

The flavor hits with that Belgian quality with light peppery spice, covered with dried bitter raisin, shriveled plums, sweet chocolate, vanilla, bitter cacao, onto a finish with some roasted coffee and lingering toffee sweetness.

The mouthfeel is medium plus with a creamy mouthfeel, and slightly dry tannic finish.
