En un temps lointain dans le Valois, alors que la bataille faisait rage, un incendie ravagea le grenier à grains de la ferme St. Rieul, détruisant ainsi les récoltes et réduisant les villageois à la famine. Des ruines fumantes, il ne resta que l’orge grillé, qui, lorsque la pluie arriva, se transforma en une boisson surprenante. D’un grand malheur nacquit un délicieux nectar, la Stout St. Rieul, cet elixir au goût prononcé et à la mousse onctueuse...

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2013
33cl bottle from La Cave à Bulles in Paris. Pours a deep brown colored body with a slight ruby hue. Finger-width, fizzy, brown head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet, bready caramel malts with some raisin dark fruits, touches of roast, a bit of a yeasty spice, and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is similar. Light chocolate notes with some raisin dark fruits up front as well as a slightly sweet and bready caramel malt. A light yeasty note with a solid roastiness comes out towards the end as this finishes dry, lightly bitter, roasty, raisiny, and slightly sweet. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium, smooth body and a somewhat active, medium-high carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. Well roasted and pleasantly sweet with a nice, dry finish and raisin dark fruit note. Good one.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2009
330 ml bottle. Dark brown and slightly hazy. Tall light beige head. Crisp papery aroma with a note of yeast. Fruity and ashy. Dark milk chocolate. Nicely balanced, but there is something iffy about this beer as there is quite a bit of yeast and ash. Very high carbonation level. Feels light and refreshing because of this. Surprisingly drinkable in the end.
