Silver medal at Soleure’s extreme beer fest 2007. An extreme black beer whose nose goes toward pepper, vanilla, ashes, tobacco and fresh hops. It reaches the palate all in softness, but quickly becomes intensely bitter, though not very dry. Long and satisfying finish.
This Cuvée was created in the honor of the Jurrassian revolutionist Alex Le Rouge. Enjoy this wonderful Cuvée at about 10°-12° Celsius (50°-53°F), with a crunch of bitter Chocolate or a Cigar. Cuvée Alex Le Rouge can be sequestrated for a few years in a cellar. Ingredients: water, barley malts, hops, cane sugar, yeast, Serawak pepper, Russia tea, Bourbon vanilla.

An unusual stout in that it has a lot of malt character. Not much head or aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lilja (2006) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2015
Ölföreningen 2015. Smak och doft av humle, svarta vinbär, rostad malt, peppar, tobak och lakrits. Lagom sötma, stor beska med smak av grapefrukt.

11.15 oz bottle. Poured an opaque black with yeast sedimentation and a tan head that dissipated in about a minute. Taste of dark chocolate, vanilla, boozy, with a dry bitter finish. Average carbonation, medium body. Not bad for my first beer from Switzerland.

Vignale (2383) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier drucken med ölföreningen. Någonstans mellan IS och IBIPA. Jäst och fenoler, svarta vinbär, beskt kärv utan att bli svår, aska, peppar, lakrits och tabak. Trevlig och lite annorlunda smakbild med en hel del karaktär. Kanske aningen astringent.

Strange fruity tart kind of porter. Maroon pour with OK head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Only a hint of roast. The pepper makes for a vegetable sourness but doesn’t leave much spiciness. Cask at Churchkey.

gegwilson (1801) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Drinks of the World, Geneva. Pours mahogany with a cream head. A surprisingly fruity aroma with pineapple and coffee. The taste starts sweet with resinous pine notes and light spice before roasted malt flavours come in on the much more bitter finish. Coffee and chocolate in there. I’d say this was verging on being a black IPA, which is no criticism. Very tasty.

Draft at the one mile house NYC after battling through Chinatown. Deep black color with nice hoppy malty taste. Very good

scirtes (80) - POLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Batch 2014, bottle (33 cl). Brownish black, with beige head. Aromas of rosted malts, chocolate and some fruits. Medium sweet, medium to high bitterness. Long, pleasant finish. Enjoyable beer.

guzgorog (413) - FRANCE - FEB 5, 2015
Brune foncée presque noir, fine mousse noisette. Nez de bois, de vanille, d’épices, poivre, cuir, houblons résineux, très très complexe. La bouche est également très complexe sur le café le choclat, les épices, la vanille, le pin. Presque trop complexe, c’est un peu le bordel et la foire aux gouts. Très bon et très interssant malgré tout. Forte amertume, bonne carbo, corps interessant.
