There are tones of caramel,tea,ahorn sirop,roasted malts and a fine touch of dried plums.This beer is medium sweet with a fine freshness and a good balance. pivo (2691) - GERMANY - MAR 18, 2003
Excellent! Maybe one of most famous beers that no one knows about. :-) But seriously - this is fantastic. Go out of your way to acquire it. Light nose - not much there initially - leans towards sour milk at times, but overall pleasant. Dark, dark black-brown color and a light frothy head. Slow start with a rather long taste profile -> moves from caramel to choco/coffee to roasted malt and to a peaty finish. Earthy wood tones and charcoal at times too. Varied and interesting taste profile. Maybe a little thinner than desired, but given its complexity, this is well-balanced. Can't explain why I was so drawn to this beer. Definitely one of the best - if not THE best - French beers I've ever had. YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Great and very interesting beer: Malty nose, almost chocolate - melted. Black with a little head layer. Chocolate milk taste, like whipped cream added in a dark cacao - but also smokey. Medium lasting fullmouth finish. Weired but excellent from my´point of view. Bov (14988) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 14, 2000

This had a weird, grayish head, though it wasn't really bad looking, surprisingly. A bit better tasting than regular, and has a better mouthfeel. More robust, complex, but still very unique and interesting. I don't know how to rate this, I've nothing to compare it to.
