COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Mandragore, 8 %vol. est notre bière noire d’hiver brassée avec de l’épeautre jurassien et un mélange de malts très complexe. Sa robe est noire brillante, sa mousse café au lait très serrée, au nez, elle révèle des notes poivrées (houblon Golding), fumées et torréfiées, en bouche elle est crémeuse, douce et corsée avec une longue finale sur une amertume moyenne

Bottle from Salt Horse. Pours black with a thick beige head. Aromas of liquorice, faint honey, light roast and dark fruit. Taste has a stronger coffee hit, more dark fruit. Clean finish. Bit of a sipper.

Bebum (702) - USA - APR 20, 2016
Dark copper, tan head, avg lace. Full body, intense flavor on attack but subsiding in the middle, lean and very hot mouthfeel, lingering and tasty palate. Very bitter but not dry, except in the finish. Intense roast flavors, coffee, dried cherries, raisins. Very nice stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nonshaugen (370) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
33 cl, bottle conditioned fliptop, Almost exploding at the opening, ruined almost everyting at my desk area. It was really waiting to get out of the bottle. Very dark beer, thin tan coloured head. Low aroma level, but the coffee, chocolate and roasted notes are there. Palate is really challenged here, lots of flavours and carbonation going on. Flavour is malty, lots of coffee and dark fruits. For me, this is a somehow weird mix of the stout and abbey styles, it’s none of them and both at the same time. Will I buy it again? I don’t think so....

ej (1209) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2015
Bottle. Gusher. Pours a large, fizzy, dark tanned head. Aroma of roasted malts, wood, liquorice and hints of dried fruit. Taste is moderate roasty with loads of fruityness. Dates and raisins, but also a light sour touch brings the taste towards liquorice and leather. Close to full bodied with a creamy texture and almost lively carbonation.
