2012-11-28, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 6-4-8-4-14=36
Black color, with creamy head. Very mild aroma, some alcohol, light roasted malts. Good body strength, with round mouthfeel; very good flavor of roasted malts and dark chocolate, with strong bitterness and warming alcohol; some late liquorice too, and light salty feeling.
Excellent flavor, not so much the aroma.
2006-12-23, Draught at Flying Saucer, San Antonio, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Dark brown color. Some aroma of roasted malt. Good body strength, with a good mix of caramel, roasted malt and coffee, with a light liquorice touch. Warming alcohol.
Dark amber color, too simple aroma; taste of malt, caramel, too much alcohol, high bitterness, quite good.
2003-11-15, bottle, 6-3-8-4-14=35
Dark amber color. Simple roasted malt aroma, sweet; phenol and liquorice. Strong mouthfeel, oily, with some phenol; a lot of malt, caramel, roasted malt, nuts. Well hopped. Nothing special.
