2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a good beer. Drinkable at best. Aroma was very weak. Dirt and heavy roasted coffee which was very faint. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a 3 finger tan head that left in a minute. Taste was boring, bland and weak. The huge biting carbonation (which was great) drowned out most of the flavor and left the mouth tingling. There was faint coffee and chocolate flavors, but they were very distant. The mouth was left bitter and wet. Was a chore to finish this bottle

Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter. ABV 5.2%
Totally black pour with two fingers of beige head, thick, with great retention.. Heavy lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of light roasted malts, milky chocolate, hops too.
Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, fruity as well, pears, hops. Very bitter aftertaste.
Medium body, fizzy carbonation. Dry on the palate.
Overall: Very good, I was expecting a generic stout but this turned out to be much more.

Bu à la pression en 25cl, couleur noire et belle mousse blanche, hormis l’arrière goût de grain, cette bière n’est pas fantastique en bouche peu d’intérêt...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Belle couleur noire avec une mousse beige foncé. Bue à la pression, dans son verre (très joli il faut le signaler). Arômes de café et de chocolat bien présent mais un gros manque de corpulence m'a déçu. Le faible degré d'alcool explique peut être aussi cette impression.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is smoky with some toffee, caramel and chocolate. Taste is rich maltiness paired with some bitterness. The rich malt flavor does finish somewhat flat though. Appearance is a black body with beige head that retains moderately
