Robe noire et opaque avec une belle mousse beige. Arômes résineux, herbal, agrumes et fumé. Goût café, chocolat, résine. Le résineux reste en bouche. Texture plutôt fluide. Une très bonne bière.

Ne au fond torréfié, fumé, un peu de boisé léger, de l’herbe sèche, quelques agrumes. Bouche plutôt légère, aqueuse. Attaque pas trop timide, amertume sèche et franche, un peu de torréfaction, pas mal de verdure, les agrumes s’effacent derrière le côté herbal. On trouve une petite rondeur de caramel fumé en fond. Longueur très sèche, amère. Le gros plus : on a quand même du goût, des arômes, le tout pour très peu d’alcool ! Pas la bière de l’année mais franchement buvable.

Bottle at home bought from a bottle shop in Lausanne Switzerland. Black / dark brown with reddy hues coloured pour with a big rocky light cream head. Aroma is initially pretty juicy tropical fruits, with melon and peach, with hints of singed pine and some dry roast, Flavour is composed of toasted nutty malts, dry roast, fruity peach melba, mango hop, little pine, dry roast finish with a little charred earth. Palate is a little bitty, dry, highish carbonation. Packs in good flavour for 3.5%. In fact i can scarcely believe it is 3.5%. Can we have a session BIPA category please?

Bue avec Emilien, François, Pap en accompagnement d’un gâteau au chocolat. Bière noire et relativement légère (en bouche, elle fait plus que ses 3,5%). Bol col de mousse qui tient quasi indéfiniment. Arôme de pamplemousse très poussé (on croirait qu’il y en a dedans) et d’orange (moins évident). Amertume assez franche en final et goût café mais bien estompée par le gâteau au chocolat, ce qui laisse un peu de place aux côtés fruités des agrumes. Belle découverte bien que ce ne soit vraiment pas notre style de bière.

Bottle, 33cL. Home. Traded with @erickok (#1). Thank you ! A black beer witha medium beige creamy head ; medium retention. Fruity aroma (red berries like blackberry or blackcurrant, tropical fruits), pepper, toast, herbs, chocolate. Light sweet, medium dry bitter, light lasting spicy. Light body, average texture, average texture, fruity peppery bitter finish. Overall, delicious, nice fruity bitterness with this spicy touch :)

330ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a dark brown color forming a medium and creamy tan head with good retention and lots of thin lacings formed and left in the glass. Aroma is mainly made of roasted malts, coffee, grassy and piny hops. Taste is mainly roasted, grassy and piny. Light body and good medium carbonation. Roasted and grassy aftertaste. Good and persistent bitterness. Nice black IPA. Just another great Salève brew.

On tap at Haand Festival. An almost clear, brown beer topped by a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma has oranges, some pine cones and cocoa, coffee and roasted malts. It’s dry and medium to thin bodied with a nice carbonation level. The flavor has a lovely blend of roasted malts and hops, leading to a lasting finish where the roasted malts and hops blend nicely. Some oranges, pine cones and cocoa too. Definitely a well brewed session BIPA. 140524
