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

anstei (447) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle at Café des Amis. Nice roast aroma, mostly coffee, and lots of it. Good balance of bitterness, coffee, and a slightly sweet backbone. Well-balanced and smooth.

Benzai (11038) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle [from trade with CH-303, thanks!] @ home. Dark brown color with a huge and wite long lasting beige to light brown head. Aroma is malts, sweetish and brown sugar. Tastes about the same, especially the brown malts and brown sugar are dominant. A little too sweet for me to really like it. Decent body, soft carbonation.

gegwilson (2247) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Drinks of the World, Geneva. Pours mahogany with a fading cream head. Sweet red fruit aroma. The taste is pretty sweet and fruity too with some liquorice in the finish. Moderate spice also. Prehaps a little thin and over carbonated, but pretty good otherwise.
