La Swordfish est une brune hybride aux céréales d’une bière anglaise et à la levure belge, ce qui lui donne un goût à la fois malté et léger. Les goûts de caramel et de chocolat sont prédominants, alors qu’une touche d’épices reste en bouche.

500ml bottle served in a snifter around 10 degrees: This is the first beer produced by the brewery Le Naufrageur I come upon and I have to give credit for the artwork I find very nice. Dense brown pour with a certain opcacity topped by two fingers of hazel foam. The nose is roasted, sweet and appealing. The taste is very interesting pairing a nice blend of roasted malts and dark chocolate. A good contribution of the hops pushes up the flavours to a higher intensity. It finishes long, sweet and hoppy and the mouthfeel is dense and a bit oily. Pretty good product overall and a very satisfying brew you could pair with strong cheeses and grilled meats.

RexTalionis (2861) - FINLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy brown in color with a tan head. There’s some sweet malty notes, brown sugar and notes of dark fruits in aroma. Throw in some notes of garden earthyness and you’re nearly there. Dark fruits in taste too, bit of some spicyness mixed with bready malty notes later on. Green herbs and bit of sweetness in the end. Okay, this brew was a bit different one somehow.

Biere brune de bonne qualité avec bonne teneur en alcool. New Castle plus forte et surtout avec du gaz un peu.

Idiosynkrasie (4460) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing dark brown colour with average to huge, frothy, effervescent, then rapidly diminishing, minimally lacing, ochre head. Fruity, malty aroma has notes of dark berries, bramble, blueberry, black currant, chocolately background, cautious yeasty overtones. Taste is dry dark malty, minimally roasty, slightly bitter hoppy, slightly fruity, slightly herbal, less explicit hints of dark berries, more earthy, woody, mossy, some peppery yeasty spiciness. Resembles a British Premium Bitter in many areas, especially in its fruit profile, has additionally a Belgian yeasty twist. A nice one.
