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

Colour of dark tea, cloudy, with a beautiful foam. Aroma of herbs, flowers, tobacco and spices. Few flavour, light bitternesss, quite long herbal aftertaste. It has an interesting aroma but an unpleasant bitterness.

Una belgian strong ale, davvero diversa, che ha il suo potere alcolico, ma mascherato con una morbidezza inaspettata e molto piacevole.

Flaska på Stallyktan, Örebro. Brunmurken vätska med liten beigebrun skumkrona. Rejäla bitar i bottensatsen som jag nog inte borde hällt upp. Sötsyrlig doft med rågiga och bäriga toner. Körsbär, vingummi, madeira, något kryddig. Medelstor kropp. Söta kolatoner jämte lite mer torra och rostade inslag av råg och pumpernickel. Ganska tydlig beska och bittra inslag.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2016
0.33l swingtop bottle. On my way from the kitchen to my living room it wanted out of the bottle. No gush, but a slow stream. The beer itself is a deep dark brown one with a little reddish hue and a small dark grey/brown top. A bit low on the nose perhaps. I get a good amount of sweetness here. Sugary dark knekk sweetness with chocolate, sour red currants and some yeast. It has a soft oily almost gliding mouthfeel and the carbonation is soft to average. Tastes alright. I have no idea what genre this is, but that doesn’t really matter. Light chocolaty, nesquick, cardboard and a dry feeling in the mountains have. It’s a bit too sweet to be called balanced. Drinks alright, but a tad to far out there on the sweet side for being true sessionabble. 19.10.2013

Bawelt (577) - 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 (1229) - 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.
