Review: Podge Belgian Imperial Stout

Podge Belgian Imperial Stout from Picobrouwerij Alvinne
Rating B+

Appearance: Very deep brown color, slightly cloudy. Moderate head, some lacing.

Smell: Served far too cold, aroma was very closed. After warming it my hands for a good ten minutes, cocoa powder, coffee, dark fruit, and light Belgian phenols emerged.

Taste: Caramel, cocoa, roast. No coffee on the palate. Somewhat boozy finish, unsurprising considering the 10.5% abv. A little reminiscent of a whiskey aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation. Slightly slick.

Drinkability: Nice Belgian stout. Looking forward to trying more from this brewery.
