500ml bottle: Pours a dark brown with thin tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. Medium bitterness, medium light bodied and medium light carbonation. Overall the roasted malts give the beer a more bitter note and then finishes quite dry. mieszal92 (406) - Gliwice, POLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle 500ml (its appearence deserves separate excitation)
Note: I do not understand the sense of this style and I am afraid I underappreciate it, but I’ll try to have my rate fair.
Firstly, it is not my first nor second beer by Bernard to present extensive gushing, this time I was prepared and haven’t lost much:)
POURS dark ruby-brown (similar to coca-cola), beige head dessipates quickly. Large bubbles.
NOSE is malty, but not too much. Little hints of weathered hop. Cartboard.
MOUTH is malty, low and short bitterness (malty, not hopy), a little caramel.
PALATE: moderate carbonation, watery, drinkable. Low-bodied
OVERALL: Neither of the sensations is strong/remarkable. These are the properties of the style, however it’s not what I search for.

Appearance: black, opalescent, with big beige head.
Aroma: rather weak, sweet, bread with dark chocolate
Taste: simple, sweet, some chocolate like notes, and rather low, nice bitterness
The beer was watery and easy to drink. Nothing much happens in it, but one should remebenr that it’s only 12 degrees Plato.
