Jurassian Imperial Stout (Cuvée Alex Le Rouge)

Oh dear. Relatively new addition to the Atlanta market, luckily for me I didn’t buy one, rather Dave popped a research bottle at The Brick Store this past Friday afternoon.
Small bottle (11.2oz perhaps), Grolsch flip top presentation with an ABV given to THREE decimal places – that’s the Swiss for you! Label is red and white with gives the impression of some Communist, Eastern Bloc origin!
Pour is black with little or no head – fair enough, considering the ABV that matches. Very slight, thin mocha ring around the surface.
Nose and tastes reveal the dark, roasted malts, but this beer has a nasty, lactose-like acidity and is thin beyond belief considering the (claimed) style and the ABV.
Extremely poor, avoid IMO.
