When you get to that time of day when that cup of hot coffee is no longer the answer, and you need something with a little extra kick, plait your bear, stick on your eye patch and grab a Black Perle. This milk stout is chock full of roasty malts, milk sugar, hopped with hand full’s of perle plundered from the unsuspecting and aged on a chest full of Zamorana coffee beans.

Butelka 500ml. Kolor czarny z klarownymi, ciemnobrazowymi przeblyskami. Piana bardzo gesta, bardzo ladnie zdobi szklo. Aromat znikomy, bardzo slaba won kawy. W smaku troche lepiej: na piwerwszym panie kawa, i w sumie tylko kawa... Po lekkim ogrzaniu pojawiaja sie lekkie nuty gorzkiej czekolady. Slodycz praktycznie zerowa. Bardzo malo laktozy co jest dosyc dziwne jak na coffe milk stouta. Goryczka znikoma, raczej od slodow palonych. Na jezyku pozostaje specyficzna dla coffe stoutow kwaskowosc. Piwo dosyc przecietne.

Pudding (227) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
500ml, bottle-conditioned. Pours very dark brown, with thick lasting tan head. Taste is ash, milk, coffee. Mouthfeel is prolonged, thick. Overall: competent milk stout with good mouthfeel for the gravity.

Drank with Thijs 24-1-2016 while Malou was in the Netherlands for the weekend. For a beer with such a low ABV, this ber has a lot of taste. Milky and especially coffee is dominant. Very good beer.

shoulderbroken (3538) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 11, 2016
Tap at Craft Clerkenwell. Strong filter coffee grounds type aroma. Totally dominates. Taste is similar, initial coffee smash, but this is some caramel and dairy afterwards. Mars bar elements. Finish is mostly sweet, but the coffee occasionally rears its head. Lots of taste for the strength.

(Weird Beard Black Perle) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 3.8% Dark brown, almost totally black colour on the body, huge dark beige head, with great retention. Aroma has lots of coffee, basically covering everything else, some light roasted malts, coffee grounds. Taste is not as sweet as I expected but rather balanced, plenty of coffee again, light roasted malts, hints of dark, bitter chocolate on the finish. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side. Nice.
