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

Finn (4141) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Sving-topp flaske. Åpner uten smell men med litt røyk. Tendenser til gushing. Kullsort med et høyt mokkafarget skum som varer lenge. Aroma av jordbær & krydder. Smaken er svakt røstet malt med bær & krydder. Lett-drikkelig - og alkoholen merkes ikke.

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Dark brown to black. Low beige head, quickly shrinking to ring of tiny bubbles. Mild chocolate, nuts and marzipan to the nose. Hint of an orange-like fruitiness. Slick mouthfeel. Medium full. Soft malt body. Rounded roast, chocolate-accented with a certain fruitiness below. Light peppery and earthy bitternes throughout. Unusual and tasty. [From a 0,33 l swing-top bottle]

kathouse (997) - Nevada, USA - JUN 16, 2014
From the cask. Pours black with a light tan foam. Aroma of toast, coffee, and slight smoke. Decent body and mouthfeel despite the lack of carbonation. Tastes like an Irish Stout but not as dry. Some light flavors of sweetness combined with roasted malts linger on the palate.

berlinoise2go (608) - NORWAY - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle (33cl). Black/very dark brown colour. Finger-thick beige head that reduces quite fast, but leaves a stable bubbly film. Aroma is malty/roasted, fruity and vegetal. Medium body, soft carbonation. Semi-sweet malty-tangy taste, leaning towards the acidic. Tongue-drying finish with a mild bitterness and an acidity akin to dry white wine, like it’s been aged in wine barrels. Not immediately impressive, but quite complex, and likely a grower.

Meilby (7386) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle 330ml @ Haand Ølfestival 2014
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and licorice. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long smooth roasted and chocolate finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

solidfunk (3889) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Better than the ratings say it is. Pours black with OK head and lacing. Roast and a little booze. Some caramel and dark chocolate. Spekt makes for interesting aroma but not sure it adds much here. Light bitter and sweet finish. Tap at pizzeria paradiso.
