3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2013 Tap at Moeder Lambic, Brussels. Pours dark, black-brown with a creamy, tan head. Has a dark roast aroma with some burnt sugar and definite citrus poking through. Nice flavor if slightly thin. Lightly sweet with some roast, light plastic, burnt cocoa, and some burnt citrus rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Burnt roast malt finish, with some wood, scorched earth, cocoa, mild citrus and grass. Pretty solid. (3.6)
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London. Pours dark brown with a fine, tan cream head. Moderate roast in the nose, some burnt toast. Light sweet flavor with dry and toasty bread, hints of cocoa. Light in body with average carbonation. Somewhat dry to finish with more cocoa and earthy bitterness. Kind of bland this time around. (3.1)

Bière noire. Mousse brune très épaisse et onctueuse. Bonne persistance. Nez fruité, fruits rouges. Entrée de bouche à l’opposée de l’odeur, bien torréfiée et arrière goût de café très agréable. Fin de bouche sèche. Bière surprenante et très bonne.

Tasted at Richement Bière 2014. Pours a dark brown / light black colour with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and hops. Soft carbonation and thin body, more watery than I was thinking. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, quite dry. Overall, a nice beer. Not very remarkable, though.

33cl bottle. Pours near black with a dark brown head. Lots of chocolate, cocoa at first, some roastedness and maybe some oatmeal. Inviting aroma really. Taste then, quite similar with chocolate being most evident, espresso notes as it warms up a little. Roasted and dry finish. Can’t really detect the Citra here, but you sure know it is well hopped. For this abv, this is quite marvellous. Thumbs up!
