COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once a "Ghost Bottle" that we only made for ourselves, Brooklyn Cuvée Noire finally journeys beyond our walls. A stout-like blend of German and British pale and dark malts, this beer fermented with Belgian yeast and then spends more than six months in Kentucky bourbon barrels. Dry, brisk, and complex, showing notes of chocolate, coffee, citrus, vanilla and coconut, Cuvée Noire is refermented in this bottle of Champagne yeast. It is a most excellent accompaniment means to dinner.

75cl bottle from the Kings Arms, London. It pours a deep brown color with ruby edges and a large off-white head. Aroma is spicy and yeasty, with notes of burnt wood, caramel, espresso, ashy smoke, dark chocolate, red wine, pepper. Taste is drier and lightly sweet with notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel, bread dough, burnt wood and port wine. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, really really tasty

Xebbe (93) - - DEC 4, 2014
Luktar som julmust och rödvin. Liten hint av saltkola. Mycket kolsyra. Smaken är speciell. En sötma, bourbon vanilj, som försvinner i kolsyran, den slår sönder den. Kvar blir en lätt fadd alkoholsmak. Lite choklad. Som att det finns smaker som jag aldrig får känna. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
