Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris
lot 330, bottled 28/09/12, bb 04/2014

Dark brown color, almost black, with generous creamy head. Mild aroma of cacao and light aroma of roasted malts; a bit dusty. The mouthfeel is dry, but smooth, there is some roasted malt and some chocolate; also a light astringency, from the yeast maybe; the final is drier and weaker.
An average Stout, with a chocolate hint, but without vibe.

Vignale (2852) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2016
Drucken på fat på Malmö Brewings franska ölfestival. Tydlig doft av cacao men i smaken är cacao inte särskilt påtaglig, lätt srlig, lite klorofyllig, torkad ingefära, blombukett. Oväntat lite rostade aromer och smaker. Annorlunda. Trevlig.

oh6gdx (23917) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottled. Brownish black colour with a minor brown head, which disappears quite fast. Aroma is chocolate, some cookies, mild toffee and some ashes and roasted malts. Flavour is roasted malts, some chocolate, ashes and some ripe fruits to it. Surprisingly watery and thin for being 6.5 %.

Brune au grué de cacao, avec épices, d’un niveau abv de 6,5 %, coproduite avec la pâtisserie Vandewalle à Dunkerque. Couleur noir d’encre, à l’opacité quasi totale. Texture tout à fait plate, sans mousse, qui fait immédiatement penser à un café bien tassé. Arômes de malt torréfié, café, chocolat fin, ganache, cacao. 1ère bouche souple et lisse, à l’entame malt torréfié, café et chocolat (comme le nez). Arrière-bouche douce, précieuse, longue. 2ème avec une précision du goût, comme du chocolat liquide et froid. Arrière-bouche fine, délicate. 3ème à la finesse incroyable. Arrière-bouche comme un nectar. Longueur pleine de nuances, et toujours ce côté lisse qui unit tout. Jambes parfaitement lisses. Levure simple, droite, belle ligne pour ce breuvage. Alcool bien, il soutient l’ensemble au parfait niveau requis. Finale qui est un vrai régal. CONCLUSION : cette bière est exactement comme un distillat, une sorte d’infusion profonde du malt et du cacao. On passe par toutes les nuances au palais et la finale est un régal (ça rime … comme le tempo du cacao !!)

rikstar (1765) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2015
0,33l fles uit Lille meegebracht. Kleur chocolade bruin met eem bescheiden crème kraag. Geur is cacao en bastogne. Smaak is zwak beetje cacao en geroosterde mout. Dun en waterig mondgevoel, in de afdronk een klein dropje. Mwah komt tekort om echt overtuigen
