Countbeer (5605) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle: Many thanks to the brewer from La Franche! Vintage 2012: Served in a Chouffe glass: Creamy beige long lasting head. Almost pitch black beer. Aromas of bay leaf, laurel, some sweet roast, hints of mocha, raisin and sweet roast, prunes, tobacco, toast... Flavours of liquorice, roast, bitters, bay leaf, laurel, some malt and herbal roast, dried leaves, some raisin and prunes, hints of alcohol, coffee and some dried roasty grains... Aftertaste is bitter, herbal roast, some bay leaf and laurel, some malt roast and coffee tints. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied. Nice beer!

Superbe imperial stout ! Belle couleur, belle mousse, rondeur, belle corpulence sans attaquer trop sur l’alcool. Une belle réussite pour cette brasserie.

freretoc (1288) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 29, 2013
Si tu fais une soirée IS; c’est l’idéal pour commencer, très amère mais douce, encore une tuerie de la Franche. C’est même la meilleure bière franc comtoise !

Bottle 75 cl #426/672. A dark beer with huge copper head. Aroma is very roasted and dark chocolate like, lot of bitter hops too, strong body, not too sweet or dry, oily with high carbonation, light licorice. Bit sharp on bitterness, long grassy and orange zest finish.
