erickok (5451) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2016
Flimsy head, nice dark body. Very harsh toasted aroma, but quite weak. Bit watery tbh. Good bitterness, lasting. Ups and downs. I like it, but I don’t consider it very good. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

sir__v (2133) - Lille, FRANCE - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: dark black beer with no carbonation and small brown head. Smell: roasted malt, black bread, and mocha with coffee notes. Superb balance. Taste: medium body with roasted malt and caramel notes, balanced with superb mocha taste coffee domination. Good attenuation and super drinkable. Aftertaste: black chocolate and chocolate beans. Amazing !

330ml bottle. Sweet and smoky taste - quite ’moreish’ and you can tell the ingredients are fresh and of good quality. Nice mouthfeel too.
