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

harrisoni (14460) - 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 (354) - 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 (648) - 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 (4005) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - 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.

Bov (10060) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 28, 2012
from Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - hazy dark brown beer under a long lasting beige foam; nice lacework; aroma of black chocolate, cocoa and apple; medium to full-bodied; pretty velvety palate, low bitterness, long aftertaste of licorice and chocolate

tkrjukoff (4153) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle 33 cl, from the bar. Pours dark brown black with a great tanned head leaving plenty of lace. Aroma is bready, slightly roasted malty, vanilla, chocolate, some coffee and bready. Flavor is acidy fruity in front, sweetness and roastiness with fruits comes more dominant in the middle finishing with sweet bitter aftertaste.

jaghana (4342) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle 33cl from Mondial de la Bière. A dark beer with medium head, nose is on caramel and soy sauce. Aroma is on spices and burnt caramel, watery with some dusty bitterness, not really nice, ashes and paint product notes.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 8, 2011
330ml bottle at the brewpub, 17th Nov 2010. Deep, deep brown with a beige head. Excellent chocolatey caramel taste. Similar nose. Smooth and soft in the mouth. Nice dark beer for the sweet-toothed. Best beer of the evening.
