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 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.

Aroma of chocolate and coffee with a nice malt note. Black brown with a light brown quick dissipating head, light lacing. Complex very Belgian taste with leather, salted-licorice and nice bitter coffee. Tons of things going on and a long finish. I like it a lot.

Ernest (6515) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Draft at Sergio’s, Louisville KY. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with notes of black cherry, oak, vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. A sourish rendition, almost like a splash of wild Flemish sour was added. Fun but ultimately kind of hard to drink much of.
