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.

bartlebier (2230) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2012
75cl bottle, Geers - Surprisingly light and dry chocolate stout with only 6ABV - drinkable and pleasant with light toasted notes. Could be a bit more full-bodied and rounder, but the chocolate bitterness is a nice touch for a stout this light. In the same category but: finer than the Dupont Monk Stout and not as luxurious & fullfilling as the JeanChris No. 2.

75cl bottle and a very lively one at that. Pours jet black with a foaming tan head. Chocolate and roast malts as expected, some dark fruit and whisky flavours, alcoholic warmth and a dry bitter finish. Great stuff
