Une bouteille de la série Nietzsche. Un liquide brun foncée. Un nez qui m’a semblé dur à percer avec cet iode. Une bouche agréable par sa texture avec des notes de chocolats et de vanille.

Dark brown with a good brown head. Aroma is green bell pepper, vegetables, hint of coffee. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, slightly vegetal on the palate. Flavour is green bell pepper, some dark fruit.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is roasted nuts, dark chocolate, and wood. Thin mouthfeel with light roast, coffee bean, dark chocolate and lingering bitterness. Good.

Nov 2013 bottle thanks to my local group for sharing. Opaque black pour with very little head. Aromas are vanilla, roasted coffee, chocolate syrup, cinnamon, and tobacco. Smooth taste. Mostly coffee and vanilla with hints of spices and cocoa. Very nice porter.

Sampled under less than ideal circumstances No head left on fully opaque brown beer; Sweetish-roasted nose; wafts of spices - mainly cinnamon - and black chocolate. Sweet-bitterish chocolate, and very dry. Not much impact from the spices, not even the cinnamon, though the dry bitterness hints effectively at barkspices. Dried berries, velvet. Hints of vanilla in the finish. Medium bodied, very slick & dry, nearly oily. Carbonation gone in the sample. The subdued spices are a bad and a plus: restraint is good, but there’s also a bit lack of character. Many thanks to Mathieu!< /I>

50 cl avec la date suivante : 11/2013. La robe est bien brune. La petite tête se transforme rapidement en anneau plutôt chétif. Le nez est plutôt épicé et complexe. Outre la cannelle, voici des parfums de piment ou de poivron. La base maltée noire apporte des effluves de chocolat. Une pointe de vanille s’affirme davantage lorsque le liquide se tempère. Les saveurs sont plutôt douces et mélangent chocolat au lait, épices, caramel et acidité des grains rôtis. En bouche, le liquide est plutôt mince et sa texture est à la limite crémeuse. En finale, la cannelle picote ma langue qui reste longuement sucrée. Merci à czar pour la bouteille.

With the crew and paired with BoT. Big nice aroma with roasty malt and bittersweet coffee. Perfect aroma score. Other than an ipa the aroma has never gotten a 10 from me I don’t think. Complex and smooth. Another seriously complex and subtle beer here.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Rec’d in a trade and shared with the crew. Nice vanilla, subtle coffee, robust malt character, a bit spicy from the cinnamon. All in all this is just a really well crafted beer. Nothing was overpowering and superbly balanced throughout.
