sebletitje (6592) - Enghien, - JUL 15, 2013
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.

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting a at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Vova. Black with a light brown head. Aroma of heavy roast, coffee, a piney hops note and a smoky note. Bittersweet flavor, very roasty, burnt, with coffee and a bitter finish with a smoky note. Quite full-bodied. Very nice, although not too hoppy.

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2014
Bottled. A brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma has notes of vinegar, roasted malt, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, chocolatel, and a bit of vinegar, leading to a dry finish.

Marheb (1967) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Un nez de pain grillés aux bananes avec café. Le corps est moyen, un brin sirupeux avec une amertume évanouie.

Maakun (509) - 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 (12) - 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 (3739) - 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 (6044) - 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.
