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

dnicolaescu (945) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 6, 2014
SWING-TOP 33 CL from CH-303. Look: almost opaque black, mocha creamy head. Aroma: starts with some roast and a prominent spicy sour/funky note, which goes away rather fast. Still some belgian spice remains, along with some soap. Taste: the flavour has many different components and all are quite strong: roasty, almost sugary sweetness and a strong pungent bitter finish. Some soapy and fresh cut zucchini notes as well.

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2014
Zutaten: Wasser, Gerstenmalz, Dinkel, Zucker, Hopfen Hefe. Tiefschwarz im Glas mit beigem Schaum und einem malzig-frischen Geruch, schwer und schwarz. Der Antrunk ist dickflüssig und frisch-fruchtig zugleich. Nur ganz leichte alkoholische Töne spürbar. Zum Hauppteil wird das Bier frischer, leicht backpflaumig, schwer, etwas säuerlich und malzaromatisch. Leicht rauchig-aromatisch. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr lang anhaltend, angenehm abgestimmt herb-malzig, Süße dunkler Trockenfrüchte, alkoholische Wärme.
→ Ein sehr leckeres und interessantes Bier! 13/12/14/14

EvilCat (87) - FRANCE - OCT 3, 2014
Bouteille. Paris Saint Bière. Robe noire coiffée d’une belle et dense mousse beige. Nez de levure et de pain noir grillées. Bouche souple et acidulée, marquée par le malt torréfié et le chocolat noir. La finale est legerement astringente et fruitée, avec des notes de bois humide et de mûrs. Sympa.

Finn (4402) - 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 (4802) - 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 (1106) - 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 (626) - 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.
