Old bottle, bb 02/2009
Beautiful red-amber color, with generous, compact head. Dusty aroma of roasted malts. Correct body, the mouthfeel is rather dry; quite pleasant flavor of roasted malt and chocolate, mild, but also light sourness, and very low bitterness (this must be because of the age). Still ok.

Bottled. A hazy red beer with a huge lazing orangey head. the aroma has notes of brettanomyces, wood, malt, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, as well as a bit of brettanomyces leading to a lightly tart finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 8, 2010
Bouteille 33 cl de L’Empire du Malt à Clermont-Ferrand (F). Brune orange foncée à courte mousse. Nez de chocolat noir, café, tabac. Le goût aussi est grillé, terreux, avec des notes de toast, biscuit et chocolat. Amertume de torréfaction. Finale douce-amère, végétale.

TimE (5081) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2009
A bit past its prime (like almost two years old) when we had it. Had an interesting nose of tobacco and molasses, but the mouth was very vegetal with some chocolate notes. Austure would be an understatement. Not bad, but would need to try fresh.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2008
75 cl bottle from La Cave a Bulles. Deep ruby-amber coloured beer with a thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is of caramelly burnt sugar, light herbal aromatics, black licorice and even a hint of black pepper. A very faint smokiness as well. There is a lightly tart characteristic in the flavour that I’m not really a fan of. Flavour is lightly sweet up front with a prominent earthy/herbal character and a lingering earthy spiciness. It comes across like a UK-style porter with a bit less roastiness. A bit of cocoaish character on the finish as well. Fairly unique brew with some interesting components but it never really comes together for me.
