COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Silver medal at Soleure’s extreme beer fest 2007. An extreme black beer whose nose goes toward pepper, vanilla, ashes, tobacco and fresh hops. It reaches the palate all in softness, but quickly becomes intensely bitter, though not very dry. Long and satisfying finish.
This Cuvée was created in the honor of the Jurrassian revolutionist Alex Le Rouge. Enjoy this wonderful Cuvée at about 10°-12° Celsius (50°-53°F), with a crunch of bitter Chocolate or a Cigar. Cuvée Alex Le Rouge can be sequestrated for a few years in a cellar. Ingredients: water, barley malts, hops, cane sugar, yeast, Serawak pepper, Russia tea, Bourbon vanilla.

Bottled, thanks Bov! Near black, rich but brief head. Intricate tobacco aroma. Medium sweet with full body and clean mouthfeel. Concentrated flavours where salty aniseed meets orange and smoke. No flavour really takes control making it complex, although a bit disaorganized. As always from BFM it’s an unusual but very tasty beer.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2007 Bottled. Thanks to omhper...and bov for this gem. Pours out in dark brown colour with a low grey foam. Deep and quite wild aroma of anise, bread crusts, grass, pine-needles, spices, toffee and sweet Arabic coffee. Full and certainly malty flavour of dark chocolate, anise, bark and surprisingly menthol. Long spicy and warming finish of dark coffee, nuts, anise, spices and alcohol. Original and tasty.

Bov (13330) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 1, 2007
draught at the Solothurner Biertage 2007 - very dark brown, almost black coloured; firm and stable beige foam; roasted, almost smokey with notes of tea, vanilla, pepper and chocolate; oily and full-bodied; rather low carbonation; a late and solid bitterness; aftertaste of vanilla and licorice with a warming alcohol touch - very complex and deeply pleasant
