3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown brew with a heavy red hue, big ass bubbly brown head that leaves my glass filthy. Coffee and berry sweetness on the nose first, that dirty filter / cigarette aroma - yea, down to style but I really am not a fan period. Slightly nutty with the smell of a variety bag of mixed and dried fruits. Chocolate and vanilla as well. The taste is alright - coffee, vanilla, nut, cream, light hop and citrus, hard roast - really can’t complain about this brew all that much as this is quite balanced and well put together. Fairly smooth with light, biting carbonation, mild to medium hop bit for the style and it is kept under control. Long stiff roast finish with hop hints. Well put together despite not being a beer that I really enjoy based on style.. aaaag..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours near black with a low creamy tan head, decent lacing. A light milk coffee aroma, gentle chocolate and light caramel. Smooth dark malt flavour, chocolate sweetness, a tinge of coffee. Really easy drinking, a creamy texture, coats the tongue, light-medium body, low bitterness. A beer that’s so smooth and not assertive that it glides by, nice gentle flavour, easy to down a few in one session.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nez assez frais de café et de notes légèrement fumées, avec un fond de verdure, d’un léger houblonnage assez fruité et herbace.
La bouche est légère, corps timide, attaque plutôt caramel qui se porte vite sur le café et une superbe longueur fumée et un houblonnage semi agrumes semi herbace et floral.
Joli bière, assez aqueuse mais qui propose des choses.
