3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very interesting beer with pronounced bitterness. Loaded with buckwheat. Very strong flavor despite its 4.5 abv. Not really a stout for me. Moreover french are able to make more interesting stout (Bercloise Stout, Fleurac noire, Noire de Slack...). Interesting anyway

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks Naam, pours reddish black with a huge tan head that stays forever, aroma of toffee, caramel, nuts, vanilla and butter, flavor is like a malt beer with some strong nutty, toffee flavors, roasted malt and cola, quite unique, more towards the baltic porter, medium bodied round mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown. Sweet and light roasted malt bouquet. The carbonation lightens mouth feel. A touch of bitterness with a hint of fruitiness. This beer is more like a brown beer than a stout, but not bad.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown colour, with a thin white head. Real malty coffee aroma, coffee comes through in the taste, and with a smooth sweet finish.

Bottle from Cave a Bulles. The aroma has coffee, blackcurrant and roast. Black coloured beer with a lasting, beige head. The taste is sweet with the roasty coffee malts and fruitiness. Medium bodied, some carbonation. Dry finish. Okay.

Very nice beer anyway.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bon Marche in Paris. Pours dark cola with a decent light tan head. Roasted coffee aroma. Medium body with sharp carbonation; thins a bit as the carbonation leaves. Flavor of coffee and near burnt malt. Quite dry. Stout it is, and except for the thin body in the finish, a very excellent one. A standout stout.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Dark body, thick beige head. Distrubring aroma of dish washing liquid, lemon flavour. No, it’s not the glass. Taste better though, coffee and very dry. Interesting but not my favourite. Very thick.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in Paris, 2006.
Is it a stout? It seems to contain buckwheat. Very dark brown, close to black. A large light brown head, slowly settling down. Strong of wheat malt, yeast, fruit and spice. Slightly roasted feel, but also a bit smoky.
Good roasted flavor. The roasted barley dominates, but is it the buckwheat that is a nice, refreshing addition? Very creamy, some coffee, chocolate, cookieish. Very complex. Like a stout with a weizen twist. Relatively dry finish, with lots of roasted malt. This is a fantastic and original beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Extremely lively, dark ruby coloured beer with a very thick creamy white head. Toasted malts and quite a strong bitterness is allied with a spicy and rather tart taste that I quite like. One of the better Brittany beers.
