COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed at Jandrain-Jandrenouille for NovaBirra in Braine L’Alleud by Emanuele Corazzini of NovaBirra. Big Mama Stout La Big Mama est un stout de 6,2% alc. Les malts utilisés lors de son brassage lui confèrent sa couleur noire intense et de délicieux arômes de café et de chocolat. En bouche, elle développe une douceur maltée balancée par une amertume délicate. Bière au goût évolutif, elle se bonifiera au cours de la première année de garde en cave. Elle accompagnera à merveille un moelleux au chocolat et coeur de fruits rouges.

Brewed by Jandrain-Jandrenouille? That I expect very high quality stuff. And indeed this turned out great. Not extreme in any way but still full of chocolate, classic herbal yet very present hops, just enough supporting toffee sweetness. I wouldn’t leave this laying around but drink it with the hop presence, it really makes the beer. Very tasty and indeed as expected of high quality, very well developed. (75cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

Inbreak (2073) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 10.08.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is rich, dark malts, licorice, cocoa, chocolate, caramel, rubber, broth, dark sugar, vanilla. Taste is slightly dry and grassy, dark malts, grass, licorice powder, cocoa, green soap, hay. Medium bitterness, thin mouthfeel. Fair enough, a little boring when it comes to taste.

Leighton (10891) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Birthday Celebration of Jack & Leighton - many thanks to Matteo for this one! Pours black-brown with a large, dark tan foam head. Lightly tangy dark malt nose, lightly floral, with notes of citrus. Moderately tangy flavor, light to medium sweet, with a bit of ash and burnt toast. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly tangy dark malt finish with more ashy roast. Decent.
