3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle at home. Very dark brown with a small off-white soapy head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice bitterness with some sweet tones. Hops, dark chocolate, pine, brown sugar, caramel, coffee and herbs. A tad too watery, but still a very nice tasty brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
AROMA : strong chocolate, toffee and coffee, med vanilla subtil nuts, roasty raisin from the malt part / floral, citric, lemongrass and subtil orange peel and pine from the hops part. some smokey leather and woody notes.
APPEARANCE : Strong dark/black with subtil foam line. Not its strongest asset.
TASTE : is well balaced, dry sweet with strong bitterness and little coffee/chocolate acidity.
PALATE is a bit disapointing for the density, but goes with the style. medium body, thin and oily feel, soft carbonation, but long finish that makes room for more toffee, curaçao and spicy gingerbread.
OVERALL : Great approach of the stout style. Big fan of Black IPA so... Served in Tulip glass from 33cl refrigerated bottle. Got better with the temperature rising.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong floral hop aroma. First in the mouth with powerful roasted malt. Light ABV but still tasteful. On the coffee side of the tongue.

I still find fascinating the fact that the aroma is different when tested from the bottle and from the glass. Here we have a mix of coffee and hops.
To sum up, this is a light stout with hops.
Great beer easely drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Goût très puissant de torréfaction, puis le houblon arrive. Bière légère qui se boit facilement. Ils osent mettre la couleur et l’alcool dans un même graphique sans abscisse défini. Ça fait mal à la tête

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very nice dark brown colour. Nice nose full of coffee but the taste is very weak, the level of alcohol is too low and the result is a quit unbalanced beer which is more appealing on paper than in reality... For a coffee brown beer, I would suggest a 3Ter by La Goutte d’Or brewery in Paris...

Black with dark brown head, strong aromas of coffee with some chocolate, pronounced bitterness, nice creamy texture, very good but don’t drink it if you don’t like coffee
