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.

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

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2015
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

Butelka.
Wygląd: Ciemnobrunatne, prawie czarne. Piana beżowa, średnioobfita, lekko znaczy szkło.
Aromat: Intensywny aromat jak piwa domowego, piwniczny, mysi (pachnie fementorem) i lekki alkohol (co dziwne). Jakby lekko dziki, wiśniowy. Prawie nie ma paloności w aromacie.
Smak: W smaku zdecydowanie bardziej palone, lekko estrowe, niska palona goryczka. Lekko kwaśne.
Odczucie: nasycenie CO2 średnie-, ciało niskie.
Całość: Smakuje jak domowe, średniej jakości ciemne lekko piwo.
