hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
From tap at moeder lambic Saint-Gilles. Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is peaty, phenol, smoke. Smells like someone poured Laphroaig in my glass. Taste has light sweetness, some bitterness, roasted and smoked flavours and again a very strong peaty taste. Really strange brew. Not sure if I like it or hate it. But that’s my problem with Islay whisky too. At least unique, intense and bold.

CraftBeerNick (1054) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle at home 8th September 2013. Quite a smokey little number, little too much iodine, aroma is smoke and bacon. Taste is smoke, quite nice, palate a little thin and some heavier carbonation. A little like Buxton, smokey and the bandaid, but not as good

deusax (455) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from La Bulle Grenobloise Dark coffe-like black, with smoked aroma and taste. Not too strong though, but enjoyable. Mt Saleve Brewery is clearly at the top regarding the french brewing scene

Elle surprend ! Noire d’encre, cette biere surprend par ses aromes lorsque l’on est pas habitué. La force du fumé et du cuir est déroutante que ce soit au nez ou en bouche. C’est loin d’etre une biere de tous les jours mais c’est agreable et merite d’etre decouvert.

Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Rubber band and smoke aromas. Thick with bacon and smoke front to back turning dry and thin in the lasting toasted pit fruit finish.

Bouteille 33cl, BB 05/2014. Props for the cool retro label, I dig the design. Brune foncée, col épais café au lait, crémeux. Arôme de tourbe léger avec une pointe de réglisse très subtile. Le houblonné reste discret et donne une fine note citronnée au bouquet. Le côté fumé est agréable et en parfaite harmonie avec le profil léger de la bière. Palais de tourbe et fumé agréable. Malt type caramel-pâle avec ici aussi un clin d’oeil de réglisse subtile. Le tout est accompagné par un houblonné bien balancé qui ajoute un léger fruité citronné. Facile à boire, complexe et se développant au fur et à mesure de la dégustation. Mont Salève est facilement une de mes brasseries françaises qui montent et continue à me combler avec ses bières.
