4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
De loins la meilleure de la série, café, mélasse, figues fraiches, chocolat, fudge et alcool bien sûr mais beaucoup plus en harmonie avec le reste du profil.

Shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks a lot, Brad!
The beer is dark brown and viscous with just a slight, wispy, dark beige head. The head offers little retention and no lacing.
The aroma offers malt, roast, and sweet booze.
Though the beer is indeed sweet, it is very well done. Syrupy and viscous with low carbonation. This drinks like a sweet imperial stout. Very interesting. The reviews are all over the place on this one, but I rather enjoyed it. A small serving is ample, but I would certainly have this again.

Full-bodied, perfect, taste lasts for a long time, suitably carbonated, textbook-like, not so distinctive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark brown color, dark brown small head. Sweet, coffee, solvents, alcohol scent. very sweet, malty, sugary, coffee taste. sWeet and coffee, some of Creme Brulee aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
I don’t like my beers sweet and this is over the top for me.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
250ml bottle. Ruby brown with no head. Anise, alcohol, bit of prune, light molasses, toffee, mild chocolate. Diabetes sweet, low carbnonation, moderate body, booze, syrupy. Found this one to be a bit of a mess to be honest.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aged a couple years. Definitely more mild. Some burnt coffee notes followed by intense sweetness. Touches of chocolate and dark fruit. Overall, too sweet to be really great

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gloopy dark brown pour with no head. Massive syrupy sweetness with raisin, truffle, brownie, and fig abounding. Sugary chocolate dark fruit prevails throughout. Sticky sweet syrupy body with a smacking finish. One dimensional and far too cloying for me.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
THOUGHTS: Tons of coffee. Layer upon layer of it really. And plenty of alcohol. Overly sweet, though. I had hoped two years of aging would have dried it out a little. Just glad I didn’t try it fresh. This could probably age for another 10 years. It went nicely with peanut butter.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was opaque black in the glass with virtually no head, but what little was there was light brown and left only a slight ring where the beer met the glass. The aroma had heavy SUGAR and both mild and strong coffee; hints of chocolate; licorice; and alcohol. The initial flavor was heavily sweet; while the finish was harshly sweet and alcoholic with a long duration. There was all sorts of coffee including coffee liqueur, sugar, cream, a little dark fruit, alcohol, coffee, candy and chocolate. The medium to full body was very oily with rather soft carbonation and a slightly metallic and moderate to heavily alcoholic finish.

Aroma has sweet licorice and dark coffee and chocolate, syrup. Black with no head. Taste is really sweet, full body, soft, velvet feel, no carbonation, sweet finish, bit sherry flavor here. Oh yeah, oh hell yeah. Alcohol is well hidden. Recommended.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is SUPER sweet with coffee, licorice, burnt malt, and maple syrup. The appearance is still with no head and black in color. The taste is like the aroma and cloyingly sweet to the point of absurdity. The palate is uncarbonated and thick. The beer has a novelty appeal but not one of the greats.
