La Sous les Pavés : bière noire titrant 5,5% d’alc/vol, elle vous surprendra par son coté désaltérant! Une fois les premières gorgées où le torréfié est mis en valeur, elle révèle son coté aromatique au fur et à mesure que vous la dégustez ; de préférence au dessus de 10°c

erickok (3548) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 7, 2013
Dark brown bodied beer worth big foamy, big bubbly head. Clear mocha aromas, some dry stout notes, pecan nut, Belgian yeast and nutmeg. Interesting mix, I would almost call it a Belgian stout (as variation on Belgian IPA’s) with its sweaty yeast character on top of the raw hop. However it’s never a very full beer in terms of mouth feel and richness of taste. The carbonation and essentially low malt backbone give a bit of a watery feeling, even though it’s rich enough for the abv. Drinking so many awesome (thick, imperial) stouts makes you spoiled, I suppose. To be fair, it’s well made and tasty and I’d drink it more often, certainly. Especially nice aftertaste with more pronounced hops. At 5,5% it’s a great drinkable dark ale. Recommended. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

rand (1300) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 23, 2011
Brune foncée à haute mousse beige à grosses bulles. Nez discret de rôti, chocolat. Attaque torréfiée, arômes de café et chocolat. La bouche est ample mais souple et désaltérante. Pas d’épices, notes de miel et fumé, café moka. Bière équilibrée, légère, goûtue mais trop saturée.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2011
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, bread, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of matl, caramel, and bread, as well as a lighter note of soy sauce, leading to a dry finish, where the bread note lingers.
