Cyril Fonchy, brewer : For my first batch as a pro, I wanted to create a beer which resemble me, but could also please everybody. As a gourmet chef, I have been looking for original raw materials. I played on texture and aromas for this Imperial Stout. My aim was to obtain a creamy product with a rather light level of alcohol. Without pretention, I first wanted to prove to the beer world that we can play with texture and aromas without raising the level of alcohol. To do so, I realized a beer using specific malts and I decided to associate with an original hopping of the Japanese Sorachi Ace. And I’m not done! It is subtly balanced by an infusion of vanilla sticks I deliberately aged in bourbon whiskey".

Als erstes schießt das Bier aus der Flasche, schade 1/3 des Bieres sind hinüber! Trottz 2 Monate langer Lagerung. Geruch röstmalzig schokolodig milchig süß, minimal alkoholisch. Geschmack mild schokoladig mit viel CO2, dazu röstmalzig, Kaffee.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
18.11.13 Bottled 330ml Saveur. A bit gushing bottle - not too much. Dark opaque black color, good beige-brown head. Aroma has cocoa, toasted malts, vanilla, sweet bourbon and caramel. Medium to full bodied, active carbonation. Sweetish bourbon flavors over the cocoa toasted maltyness. Some lingering whisky-like alcohol in the finish. Interesting. Maybe less yeast to get less carbonation and bottle conditioning? Otherwise quite nice French beer.
