Brouwerij Frontaal Billiard (10.1%)

This, my friends, is something very special.
Billiard is an Oatmeal Coffee Imperial Stout that wipes the floor with every other beer of its style.
The malting is round and rich and creamy, vanilla ice cream, treacle tart and Tiramisu lie at the beer’s heart.
Then there’s the most deliciously dry and woody black coffee and lip smackingly bitter dark chocolate, while the aroma is round and juicy with plums and pears drenched in brandy.
You also find some seriously pithy and resinous redwood bark, tobacco and leaf litter from the hops as you head towards the rum and raisin, damp oak and freshly lacquered fence posts of the finish.
I want a barrel of this.
