COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Objectively … the best stout in the world! Savour it with your dessert - with an ice cream and spéculoos, for example - and close your eyes: it’s like entering a torrefaction workshop … This beer is the favourite of the brewer, who has always adored stout. “But I mean real Stout, not oversweet gassy liquids!”. With an aim of finding a fairly marked coffee after-taste, we have chosen to use the most torrefied barley malt that can be found on the market - Black malt at 1400 EBC. As this malt is a bit acrid, we have “corrected” it by using another slightly caramelized malt (150 EBC), and some brown sugar. So that the hops can exist alongside these strong caramelized and torrefied malt flavours, we have mainly opted for the strong American hop, Tomahawk."

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2016
154 Cazeau Tournay Noire Ar - 7 Ap - 5 Fl - 7 P - 3 O - 15 Rate – 3.7 Very dark brown in color. BIG tight bubbled light tan head. Aromas of toasted to roasted malt with a backdrop of citric hops. Nice lace. Quite light in feel and the carbonation is light enough to ensure it is not fizzy. Hints of toasted malt sweetness in the front that dries out into the finish and linger to a wisp of ash and touch of charcoal. If you wait long enough a hint of caramel and roasted malt returns. A easy enough brew to quaff. A black brew for a hot day, this would work. 5/10

carac (5) - Cuesmes, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2016 does not count
Au nez, d’emblée le malt torréfié, chokotoff. Elle est noire! Visuellement, comme un expresso, la mousse est celle de la pression façon machine italienne. (pas café crème) D’ailleurs elle retombe vite, trop vite, et le verre ne ressemble plus qu’à du coca. En bouche, un gout fort de torréfaction, du caramel grillé, une pointe résineuse et du pain noir grillé. La finale se fait plus sur le bonbon à la réglisse et la sauce soja.

Bottle from the Beer Emporium, Bristol. Poured a deep mahogany brown with a small but lasting off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, malt and coffee. Medium sweetness, with moderate roasted bitterness. Full body, thick texture, average carbonation with initially fizzy mouthfeel. Finish is stronger on coffee. with a lingering coffee tia-maria like sweetness.

Butelka, warka do 08/2017. Bardzo ladna i dosc trwala jasnobezowa piana na ciemnobrazowym piwie. aromaty ciemnych owocow w duzej roznorodnosci, nieco kawowe, nieco drozdzowe, czekoladowe, o dziwo wszystko w takiej rownowadze, ze zapach sprawia wrazenie kwaskowatego. sa tez dziwne i ciekawe nutki - cos a la delikatny ser plesniowy. W ustach bardzo fajna, puszysta faktura, nieco kwaskowate, dosc wytrwane, z posmakami gorzkiej czekolady. bardzo dobre
