Bouteille 33cl, BB 01/2015. Brune foncée, épais crémeux moka. Arôme malté entre chocolaté et torréfié. Pointe de fruits noirs? Houblons restent assez modérés avec qcq notes de citrons le tout oscillant plus sur le neutre de part l’effet des malts qui dominent. Le bouquet semble, sauf erreur de ma part, donner une très fine note d’acétique-levure. Palais est épais axé sur les malts. Le tout reste néanmoins assez faible pour une bière tirant 11%. Malt grillé, profil restant sec et poussiéreux avec ce fini de vieux café. Pétillance est faible avec une amertume des houblons restituant un côté citronné sur pointe de pamplemousse qui peine à percer. Je note également une petite note aigre en toute fin de bouche. Probablement du à la levure.

Maakun (319) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle. Black color with almost no head. Lots of hoppy notes, tropical, pine. Big coffee and strongly roasted notes. Taste is quite bitter with light sweetness, later light sourness. Medium body, light carbonation. Ok beer but a bit one dimensional.

SteveBennet (10) - Paris, FRANCE - JAN 6, 2014
On tap at la fine mousse. Pours dark, beige head with large bubbles. Aromas of heavy roast, dark chocolate, molasses. Taste is sweet, caramel, with hints of ripe fruits. Finish is syrupy (over roasted) espresso. High alcohol is well hidden.

jaghana (3491) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a deep dark beer almost without head. Nose is heavy on roasted notes with dark coffee and soy sauce touch. Aroma is sweet with dark coffee, dark chocolate, roasted notes on an oily body, off course long roasted aftertaste, expresso. Fruit yeast notes on apricot and peach, sweet vanilla, touch of licorice, quite strong roasted beer for a French brewery, but very pleasant.

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2013
(Draught at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels, 23 Oct 2013) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, cocoa and creamy coffee. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, black rye bread and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Quite well balanced, with alcohol well hidden behind everything else. Very nice.

erickok (3161) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 18, 2013
Deep dark body with light brown, stable head. Lots of milk chocolate, forest malts, brown sugar and herbal hops. Not fresh like an America ipa. Taste is funky, light bitter and sour. Very interesting yet probably not as intended. I like it though. However the super high abv doesn’t seen necessary. Please bring that done and it’s a very recommandable beer. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

CraftBeerNick (748) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle at home, 29th June 2013. This pours deep black, aroma is musky hops and malt, some chocolate. Fairly light for the ABV and drinks below this, not bad, but maybe overkill, the bitterness really lingers, not overalls sweet because of this, reasonably balanced, not bad
