des bonne notes de caramel toffe et grillés qui se balance bien avec l’alcool, une réussite de cette brasserie

Black color with a light beige head with short duration. Aroma slightly notes of coffee and licorice with roasted malts. Flavor is light coffee and roasty. Some oxidation in the final.

L’appellation "porter" est inscrite sur la bouteille... mais on dirait plutôt une imperial stout. Au nez, on trouve de jolis arômes caramélisés. En bouche, la bière est beaucoup plus agressive. Une amertume genre chocolat à plus de 80%. On peut trouver des fruits confits assez forts qui peuvent être intéressants ou dérangeants selon le goût.

SkillsFactory (222) - ITALY - APR 16, 2015
Nera, limpida, schiuma color caramello non molto persistente. Aroma di malti tostati, cacao e caramello. Al palato, prevalgono note di cacao e caramello, retrogusto di malti tostati, corpo medio-leggero.

harrisoni (15649) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Black beer with thick tan head. Some dark syrup flavour. Some molasses, bit oily, some dryness on the finish. Lots of dark syrup flavour. Oddish but ok.

cagou007 (591) - FRANCE - NOV 30, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Pours a deep dark color with a small tan head. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, liquorice, sour fruits, earth. Strange acid and mettalic aftertaste. Really not my favourite beer from Ninkasi.

Bozo_skeleton (783) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUN 21, 2013
Robe noire (brunea la lumiere), col leger, limpide. Aromes leger de cafe. Un final sur la torréfaction, assez ronde. Pas mal du tout

erickok (4340) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
Dark bodied with small light brown lace. Sweet licorice, bay leave, funky, even fig and sour compote. Drinkable body, normal carbonation. Definitely a sour funky taste, unusual and not sure if it’s supposed like to this. I like it myself, but it’ll certainly not be everyone’s taste. (33cl bottle from Au Nom De La Bière)

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - SEP 30, 2012
Noire (Black in French). Indeed, this pours deep black with a beige foam head. Nose is soft, with chocolate and caramelized notes. Mouth is sweet, a bit acid and metallic, not dry enough to be a stout, not strong enough to be a Belgian Brown, something inbetween without style nor depth. It is not a bad beer, but not a great beer either.
