La Torpille, bière brune 7.5% vol. est une bière au bouquet subtil partagé entre des notes épicées, caramel et fruitées rappelant les arômes de vieux vins des Côtes-Rôties. En bouche, l’impression est partagée entre la douceur de l’alcool , la finale est moyennement amère et la rétronasale épicée

Bottle from Salt Horse. Pours clear red - brown with a thin demerara sugar coloured head. Aromas of caramel and clove. Taste is more of the same. Sweet finish.

Bawelt (410) - Lyon, FRANCE - APR 29, 2016
En soi, bonne mais très déséquilibrée. Bouquet très fort et assez riche : caramel, banane, pomme, cannelle. La bouche est plus amère, assez éthylique mais timide dans les arômes. On retrouve timidement le bouquet. En revanche : je l’ai goûtée après une bouchée de panzerotti au citron : la PERFECTION !!!

anstei (932) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle. Caramelized dark brown. Caramel is present throughout, but rather of the bitter kind. Pleasantly malty. The ABV doesn’t really show, just slightly on swallowing. Nice.

Nonshaugen (337) - Fetsund, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
33 cl flip-top, bottle conditioned. Very dark ruby brown-red, loads of floating sediments, thin tan head. Aroma is very spicy and sweet. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation, bitter aftertaste. Flavour is very spicy, lots of clove, chilli heatness, peppers, dark fruits and alcohol. All in all this beer features a lot of impressions. It’s complex and impossible to ignore. Well put together, but I don’t think I will buy another one.

SlackerMads (2673) - DENMARK - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown with a medium sized beige head. Spicy nose with some wood and brown sugar also. Spices also come through in the flavour along with wood, coffee, brown sugar, dark bread, nuts, cloves, mild chili like heat. Medium body, soft and filling with soft carbonation. Some sweetness, mild bitterness. Soft and pleasant, a bit too muche cloves for my taste.

I drank this beer yesterday in the Simplon coffee in Lausanne. Overall it is a good product. This beer is brown troubled with a thin foam and medium-low carbonation. The first sensation is in the mouth nice and not simple and well balanced. We could smell a side of caramel, some spices, malt and few hop and there is a small side of coffee. If I compare this with the brunette of boxer, I can say that it is a real dark with character.

Vignale (3043) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from Etre Gourmete. Brown liquid with a firm offwhite head. Probably an infected bottle (again). Sour, bretty with herbal and grassy bouquet, some spices, cloves, odd bananas and cellar. Mildly sour, cloves and fermented bananas. Drinkable but not nice.
