2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brune foncée, limite noire, peu de mousse. Nez de malts grillés et de chocolat. Bouche sur le chocolat, acidité importante et plutôt désagréable, amertume prononcée également. Peu de corps. Je trouve que la bière est un peu ratée, manque d’équilibre, on retrouve l’acidité du lactose, et l’amertume du chocolat, mais, en contrepartie, l’arôme du chocolat est trop peu présent à mon goût.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere
Pours dark brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of chocolate malts, artificial vanilla, cocoa and some roastiness. Taste is smooth, sweetish and slightly roasty with some dark chocolate and cocoa notes. Finish is smooth, slightly lactic and roasty with some dark chocolate notes. Feels a bit off.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light roasted malt and some coffee, light (milk) chocolate. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, light roasted malt and coffee. Finish is average, malty - lightly oaty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light roasted malt with light coffee and faint (milk) chocolate, faint alcohol. I do not get so much milk here. OK lightly roasted stout anyway - not overly too sweet (due to 8%).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from saveur-biere.com. Deep brown, almost black colour, with an impressive beige head. Sweet chocolate nose. Full-bodied, malty-sweet start with aromatic chocolate - not artificial but really, really good dark chocolate. Hints of vanilla. Smooth carbonation, very pleasant and easy-drinking. The 8% abv is very, very well hidden. Delicious dark delight.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with late awakening, average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma, notes of cocoa and milk chocolate, cocoa butter. Taste is roasty dark malty, subtle hints of cocoa, a touch of nougat; sadly with a slightly unpleasant bitter note of burnt rubber throughout. Not completely a felicitous fusion.
