Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of smoke, roasted malt, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, , and smoke, leading to a dry roasted finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottle from La Fine Mousse, Paris. Black with a small, creamy beige head. Malty aroma, chocolate, dark fruit, alcohol. Good rich chocolate, more than hints of marcipane and some fruit. A late-night treat for sure.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
33cl bottle from La Cave ŕ Bulles in Paris. Pours a black body with a thin, creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is hard roasts, licorice, currant dark fruits, dark chocolates, and a decent amount of citruses. Flavor is similar. A good amount of citrusy hops with some hard roasts, licorice, dark fruits, dark chocolates, and coffee. Finishes dry, roasty, and pretty bitter with a good amount of licorice before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Fuller, smooth body and a flat, lighter carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid imperial stout. Roasty and hoppy, but a bit flat on the carbonation. Good beer.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Citrusy hops and roasted, nearly burnt malts are transported by intense bubbling, and somewhat bothered by picklish notes in the nose.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the dark brown-hued blackness.
-Citrusy hops and intensely roasted malts aren’t exactly harmonious.
-Flavor profile is a lot more engaging than the aroma.
-Dark chocolate and coffee beans appear here and there.
-The intense carbonation and light vinegar touches in the aroma are probably signs of arising problems...

Countbeer (4393) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle: Medium sized brown head, changes slowly into a closed lacing on top of a pitch black beer. Thick smell of liquorice, cream, burned malts, roasted barley malts, light tar, some dark dark chocolate. Very good deep and promising smell. Taste loads of liquorice/bay leaf and bitters with some tar chocolate, bitter fruit and herbs, dark spices, dark fruits and dak chocolate. Aftertaste is bitter, roasted malts and roasted grains, tar and dark chocolate. Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy oily and thick texture. I don’t know how many French imperial stouts I have had, but this one might be the best so far.
