COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
C’est ma version d’une porter avec un houblonnage renforcé: 50 IBU pour « seulement » 5,2-5,5 % d’alcool. Elle contient pratiquement la teneur en houblon d’une IPA, mais sa couleur brun-noir provient des malts rôtis. Je la brasse une ou deux fois par an.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear brown colour with average, frothy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Minimally sourish, malty and fruity aroma with hints of cherries and grapes. Taste is moderately sweet malty, fruity, a touch of cherries and grapes, herbal hop notes, a dry touch of fruit parings, hints of roast; lasting dry finish. Slightly stray from what I think to be a typical Black IPA.

Kristall-König (2187) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2013
Weinartiger Geruch, säuerlich-malzig. Startmalzig. Mitte moderat schokoladenmalzig, leichte Weinnote. Abgang samtig, trockenbitter, schokoladenmalzig. Gut.

thb (671) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 22, 2013
Dark, dark brown, 2 inches of pillowy head. Aroma is chocolate, resin, tropical fruits. Taste is true to description - sturdy brown ale plus serious bitterness and hops. Bit of an odd vegetal character.

mcberko (5917) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2013
330mL bottle, pours an amber-tinged dark brown with a humungous foaming off-white head (seems the bottle was disturbed). Aroma of toasted nuts, a little roast, citrus hops, and some rather unpleasant burnt rubbery notes. Flavour of burnt roasted malts, toasted nuts, harsh citrus hops, and leather / rubber. Finishes on an astringent note of harsh hops and again with the leather. Carbonation is absurdly high, destroying the mouthfeel, not that the flavours were that great to start with. Not too impressive.

Gerbeer (1662) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with huge head. Aromas of lightly roasted malts, fresh plums, and yeast. Flavors of golden raisins, light brown sugar, and toasted malts. Bitter mid to finish. Tasty for a relatively light ABV.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Thin head, dark brown with lots of chunky sediment. Faint scent of roasted malt and sour milk. Taste is roasted malt, sour, mild bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation. This could be borderline skunked. I’ve had skunked beer before and it was undrinkable, this is still drinkable but not enjoyable.

LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Blah. A boring bland beer that probably didn’t get a fair chance being that it probably sat on a shelf for a very long time in the store I got it in. Aroma was light and weak. Grass, mud and a hint of roasted malt. A weird mix. Pour was a murky medium brown with a off white ring for a head. Taste was very odd. Not terrible, but close. Terpentine, Listerine and a slight hoppiness. There’s some roasted caramel in there but the off flavors are just too overpowering. Little carbonation. Drain pour.

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
Bouteille de 33cl. Belle bière brune avec une couche de mousse beige foncée. Au nez il y a des effluves de grains rôtis, de noix, noisette. La bouche est soyeuse, facile et sucrée. Les saveurs de chocolat côtoient celle des houblons herbeux. L’amertume est bien présente en fin de bouche de moyenne qualité qui est facile à boire tout de même. Via IPB.
