3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A close relative of their Tournay de Noël, this is even darker and more roasted and thus qualifies as a stout. Almost black colour, deep beige head; dark fruits, oily mouthfeel, bitter chocolate, yeasty notes, full roasted coffee-like bitterness in the finish, mouth-filling. More than decent.
