Arve_Christian (4806) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2014
On bottle from Beermerchant a while back. Pitch black color, massive offwhite foam ( and it had been standing still for weeks)- high carbonation. Aromas of coffee, leather, licorice and malt- lighter dried fruits; medium aroma intensity. Good bitterness and balance. Very enjoyable

7/IX/14 - 33cl bottle from 5de Gents Bierfestival @ home - BB: 12/VI/14, bottled: 12/VI/13 (2014-971)

Clear dark brown to black beer, huge creamy beige head, very stable, adhesive. Aroma: fruity, hops, bit soapy, sweet, some caramel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, some caramel, roasted, mocha, sweet touch, but also fruity bitter hops, citrus, bit floral. Aftertaste: mocha, coffee, hops, citrus, little sour, bit grassy, could pass as a Black IPA, I think, though the kind of BIPA that leans more towards stout than towards IPA.

bartlebier (3425) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle pour@10e Arch’en Bières 08/2014. Pours a thinner opaque dark brown, well-carbed head. Tangy nose composed of roast going into charred wood and some mineral brine. Lighter mouthfeel than expected, making the mineral and char notes dominate over cocoa powder and coffee grounds, which enter in the aftertaste. Overall well-composed, light, enjoyable.

poech73 (369) - Braine, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle @10th Archenbières Festival. Stout doux malté et houblonné avec finesse.
Avec un nez peu avenant, je m’attendais à du lourd: fortes senteurs torréfiées de café fraîchement moulu, sirop de malt quelques effluves lactées, de la levure, pas d’amertume. En bouche, c’est la surprise : aucune lourdeur. C’est en fait une dégustation en deux temps: d’abord, je reçois à l’avant les saveurs torréfiées, le caramel avec une belle rondeur mais plutôt timorrées; ce n’est qu’en retrait que je goût des arômes de café à la réglisse accompagné de cette levure épicée sur des notes poivrées. La finale est finement amère, à la fois minérales et herbacées sur une longueur moyenne. En retro, le goût de café revient avec des saveurs de pain d’épice. Bien balancée, même si elle manque de virilité à mon goût. A siroper au coin du feu lors de longues soirées d’hiver!
