Intro: A 750ml bottle, 2015 vintage, bottled on 20th May 2015. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A cloudy dark golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had decent retention while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart and sour, raspberry, wheat, barnyard funk, oak with hints of lime.
Taste: Sour, tart, raspberry, cranberry-apple, wheat, lemon-lime and Belgian yeast with only a hint of oak and funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was ok, but not quite as much raspberry as I hoped for. I was surprised by the higher than expected ABV though, as the alcohol was well hidden.

Intro: A 750ml bottle, batch #315, bottled on 2nd May 2016. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: Dark dark brown in colour with an almost two finger dark mocha head that had pretty good retention and left some lacing.
Aroma: Dark roast coffee, dark fruit plum and raisins, molasses and dark chocolate.
Taste: Dark fruited chocolate, cherry and plum sweetness, molasses, booze. Only light coffee notes along with hints of caramel.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied with light carbonation and a hint of alcohol.
Overall: The coffee flavours were not as strong as I would have expected. To be fair, it has been almost one year since bottling, but there are many examples of Coffee Stouts, where the coffee has held up really well. Having said that, this bottle is still tasty and really easy to drink, and whereas some Imperial Stouts I can sip for hours, I have pretty much finished this 750ml bottle in less than an hour, which is really fast for me, for a beer with double digit ABV%.
