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.

Le liquide est noir comme la nuit dans les bois,sa mousse est beige,son col épais et sa dentelle s’agrippe aux parois de mon verre.Au nez c’est le café noir,le chocolat noir,le rôtis et le fumé.Au goût,( la texture est plutôt huileuse),le café noir avec une très légère amertume et une final malté-rôtis.

Medium, dense cream-beige head over pitch-black beer. Very nice & intriguing nose with stout features, aromatic herbs & flowers, rosewater, straw, immortelles, liquorice, roasted and sweet; Fascinating! Dry, roasted to burnt. Sweet and bitter(ish) chocolate. Roasted grains, black bread. Creamy MF, seemingly well-carbonated, but not very well-bodied, even slightly watery. Pleasing stout.

600ml bottled 06/2014, date exp.06/2015ish from Mondial de la Bière Mulhouse 2014. - does all it says on the label and promises as an Irish dry stout, with an unmistakeable New World hop freshness: bayleaf-spiked Wiener Nescafe, damp nettle and dried orange rind in aroma, more powdery bitter chocolate in taste, some milk chocolate cream and more bayleaf herbalistics joining hazelnut malts. Great mouthfeel and dryness, quite full for its abv, with few watery pockets. Nevertheless holds it own with genuine IRL Porterhouse Wrasslers Stout.

shoulderbroken (2884) - 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 (8461) - 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.
