3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Thanks to Boutip for the bottle.. Smells hoppy, a little musky. Pours brown like the label promises. There’s some roast malt here and a little floral hoppiness. Good carbonation, some lacing, some head. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy dark brown body with a good beige foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and woody hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries malty and some roasted cereals notes. Ends with a decent bitter/grainy finish. Enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of deep caramelized malt with strong earthy hops that don’t really mesh with the malt notes. Taste is also a bit off balance between some strongly caramelized malt with quite a lot of residual sugars and some earthy with light pine notes that don’t really holds against the huge malt backbone. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Weird one and not something I would seek again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line :
Chestnuts and roasted malts meet wooden, earthy hop resins in this bitter Brown IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the blackened brown.
-Body is lean and effervescence soft.
-Drinkability is rather high.
-Nose is deficient; either the hops are tired in this bottle, or it was a poor hop choice for these malts.
-Nascent fruity acidity isn’t too fitting.
