Deep burnt malt taste with a very nice balance between the hops and malt. Pleasant but with some subtle flavours hidden within.

Draft. They even threw in a marshmallow very strange concept but it works. Pours a black body with a dark tan head. Malty and cordial like in terms of sweetness. Creme de caco, coco, mint chocolate notes. Coffee liquors, sweet dry stout with nice vanilla and whiskey notes. Delicious beers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une pinte sur place. Bière noire, très foncée presque opaque. La mousse est brune même si elle est très mince. Le nez dégage des arômes sucrés, de la torréfaction et du café rôtie. En bouche elle est sucrée, elle a une bonne tenue et une bon équilibre entre le malt et les houblons. agréable.
