Pours black, small tanned head fades fast. Scent is surprisingly sharp, roasty, very mild booze, notes (hidden) of coconut. Taste is medium intense, roasty, sweet, caramel, no real almonds ( macaroon) which is a relief. Coconut is very mild, but it's not chemical, which is something I sometimes get in that. Body is medium thick, carbonation is medium to medium high.

I can't put my finger on it, but I miss some 'smoothness'. It's very 'clinical' and even that sounds chemical, that's not the case here. More than decent Imperial stout for sure, i might not fully be entertained due to the expectations by it's name and it's given result though.

15/IV/21 - 33cl can from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte), shared @ home, BB: VIII/2022 (2021-290)

Pretty cloudy light to bright yellow beer, small creamy dense white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty fruity, citrus, pineapple, some tropical fruits, apricots, bit spicy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty acidic, lots of grapefruit, some orange peels, pretty bitter, lemony, dry. Aftertaste: fruity, some orange peel, spicy, dry bitter finish.

pours clear blonde . Small white head fades fast. Scent is fairly mild. hints of its tart base, but not so much of its fruit. Taste is fairly light. Medium tartness (lactic) bit unfresh though. Fruits don't really work with the beer for me. Bit 'sweaty' almost (but not in the way I usually mean that ) .. Have had far better from Totem.

Clear warm golden colour, white dissipating bubbly head. Citrus aroma, blood orange, hops, grapefruit, tangerines, sweet malt note. Light sour and salty flavour, malts, tropical fruits. Bit thicker texture from salt, light sour and malty finish. Very nice and refreshing!
