COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stout Moka. L’Exploité rappelle l’époque où les bières noires et sucrées ravitaillaient les travailleurs du port de Londres, qui déchargeaient, à la sueur de leur front, des sacs de café moka et de cacao. L’Exploité est brassée avec ces ingrédients et offre des notes de torréfactions complexes, légèrement vanillées. On y goûte des saveurs de café alcoolisé, de chocolat et de malt rôti, équilibrées par l’amertume et les sucres résiduels. (Contient du lactose.) English: L’Exploité recalls a time when dark and sweet beers were the staple beers of the London Harbour porters who worked very hard unloading bags of mocha coffee and cocoa beans. L’Exploité is brewed with these ingredients and presents complex torrefied notes with subtle hints of vanilla. We find tastes of alchoolized coffee, chocolate and roasted malts balanced with the bitterness and the residual sugars. (Contains lactose.)

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkles fast schwarzes Bier mit schöner cremigen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, süß schokoladig, Kaffee. Geschmack süß schokoladig, Kaffee, leicht bitter röstmalzig.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
My Bottom Line :
A massive coffee presence overwhelms most chocolate malt flavors in this unrefined but nonetheless flavorful Coffee Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A flimsy head of foam dives into the darkness.
-Lactose adds to the impression of sweetness.
-The high intensity of the coffee flavor, coupled with quite high residual sugar perception, make this feel much heavier than your average 6.5% brew.
-A vegetal, roasty angle is found alongside earth and pepper in the finish.
-This is an obvious nod to huge Coffee Stouts like Péché Mortel, so if you’re in the mood for such a brew, it will surely satisfy you... until you find a bottle of the real deal.

Bottle.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2011
2011-10-30. Black body, head fades. 3+ Asken roast in the aroma, dry roasty cold cofee. 6+ Flavour is similar, dry and roasty cold coffee over sweet dark malt. Some sugary touches around the edges. Smooth medium to full bodied palate. A decent beer but one that is very much not to my taste. Coffee drinkers will like it better. Cask Days 2011, Toronto

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2013
Bouteille 341ml, Bottled on 04/2013. Brune foncée quasi noire, col crémeux-moka. Arôme présente un signature certaine des malts. Ces derniers donnent complexité oscillant entre moka et grillé sur un léger café-torréfié. Le tout s’accompagne par une amertume des houblons (mais aussi du malt) qui reste en retrait. Un bouquet subtile lactose s’immisce entre tout cela adoucissant les malts. Palais est malté, caramel, léger grillé-moka, le tout restant assez léger au palais. Finde bouche est sec avec une petite amertume chocolatée et qcq note de sucre brun suivi de suite par un sucré lactose. Bière reste corsée pour juste 6.5%, sec avec pour moi, une fin de bouche offrant un léger profil anisé. L’amertume arrive en fin de bouche pour un houblonné léger citronné et herbacé.
