COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière d’un noir intense, coiffée d’une mousse moka laissant de riches traces de dentelle sur le verre. Nez généreux de café chocolat et de houblons herbacés. Ronde et crémeuse en bouche, l’amertume est soulignée par un trait anisé qui s’efface sèchement dans une douceur de sucre candi.

shoulderbroken (2850) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2015
Tap at Moeder Lambic St Gilles. Surprisingly light. Cola element. Maybe a little fruity, bit spritzy. Light roast, little choc. Seems more carbonated than i would have expected,

Ferris (8154) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Draft - Nice roasty notes. Jet black with a rich brown head. Dark bitter sweet roast and a odd almost sweet bitter sour note. Dry finish, but not enough to roast in the flavour.

UXO (871) - CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours clear brown with two fat fingers of medium dense tan head, good retention, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is roasty malts, chocolate, coffee, herbal, slight smoke. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Full creamy body, moderate to low carbonation, clean dry finish. (4/5) Quite a nice dry Irish stout. Slightly smoky notes add an interesting complexity. I’d really like to try this on tap (or nitro) - I bet it would set up a nicer head and creamier body. (16/20)

2015-06-03 - Stout noire au gout de café, de chocolat et de houblon. L’amertume assez présente laisse quand même un léger goût sucrée
