VDuquerroux (608) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 13, 2015
On tap, 25cL. @La Fine Mousse, Paris. A pitch black beer with a good beige foamy head ; medium retention ; good lacing. Aroma of coffee (intense), roast, toast, herbal note. Medium lasting sweet, herbal bitter note. Light body, thin smooth texture, average to soft carbonation, sweet finish, herbal acid note. Overall, a pleasant smooth beer with strong coffee aroma. I would have loved if this beer was a bit warmer and thicker. Taste is deceiving : ok it’s pleasant but we are far from a "gourmandise".

erickok (4251) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - FEB 7, 2014
Dark bodied, bubbly frothy light tan head. Aroma is not concentrated but still aromatic and rich, with rye bread, light but apparent coffee, cheesy yeast, some barn even and some leather. Pleasant mouth feel, nice roasted taste, a bit smoked, a bit of leather. Modern hop profile to support. Almost too easy to drink for its own good, I finished it before making my notes! (33cl bottle from La Cave à Bulles)

Bottle at Le Supercoin. Black with a rich offwhite head. Complex roasted and smoked malts. A bit salty in the mouth together with hints of licorice. Interesting.

Alphadelic (1906) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2013
An excellent porter texture and robust malt character lead into a mix of chocolate and roasty bitterness in the finish. The vanilla is very restrained. I could drink this in a heartbeat.

mansquito (4069) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Brought back from France by me girlfriend: Pours something close to black with a light brown head. Aroma is burnt chocolate, roasted malts, and toast. Taste is more complex than expected. Somewhat bitter, with barely any sweetness. Nice sustained aftertaste with some astringency. Body is nice and creamy; correct consistency. Very drinkable.
