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.

Fatehunter (1179) - 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.

AgentAle (648) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Aroma is roasty malts, caramel and some chocolate. Taste and some rich sweet malts with chocolate, nuts, and mocha. Appearance is a dark body woh a beige /pearl creamy head that retains fairly well.

Case (239) - GERMANY - JUN 8, 2014
Pours ruby red-brown with big thick head. Aroma is roasty, coffee. Taste is sharp bitterness, followed by caramel and fruit. Ends dry. A hophead’s delight.

kermis (4977) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle sampled at Festival der Bierkulturen, Koln. Pours hazy brown with a thick off white head. Aroma ofbran flakes, malt, caramel and bread. Flavour is moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Grassy hops coming out in the palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

bartlebier (1659) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle pour@FdB Köln 2014. Pours a solid bodacious brown with dark cherry inflections. Mild impressionistic nose, dry woody malts and maybe some berries. Taste delivers: a confident piney hop bitterness accompanied with Alt-quality malt wood, roast and caramel. Lingering earthy, leafy bitterness, carried and offset by a round body. True to the substyle in asfar as expressivity here are converted into "brown" shades of caramel, earth and wood and another beautiful Trois Dame exercise in cross-pollenating styles to achieve heightened subtlety.

pintbypint (2593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
330ml brown bottle. Medium brown pour, pretty clear. Very full and creamy off white cap that is long lasting. Glass coating lacing. Nose has caramel and nut and some light chocolate, light hops. Taste has earthy malts, dark chocolate and some roasted notes. Coffee beans and roast malt at the end with some bitterness. Dry. Interesting beer, a bit light for what I expect from a black ipa.

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear deep dark ruby brown, slight hue, foamy tan head mostly lasts. Aroma of dark roasted malt. Sweet richer dark roast taste, some caramel, herbal earthy floral hop bitterness, faint citrus. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, moderately hopped. Hint of chocolate and coffee near the finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle@Home. Funk aroma but in a good way. Brown, beige head, good lace. Sweetish, malty, bitter, funky, chocolate, harsh bitter finish. Too much going on, unbalanced.
