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.

33 cL bottle. Pours murky dark brown with a little diminished off-white head. Light chemical aroma, roasted malt aroma and slight chocolate note. Flavour is peppery, spiced and quite hardroasted malt base. Finish is solid bitter and roasted malty with a quite strong herbal note.

Ungstrup (38587) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2008
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of roasted malt, which also lends it a slight acidic edge. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel, and chocolate.

Roasted aroma of fruits, spices, caramel and hops..
Roasted flavour of pepper, liquorice, fruits and hops.
Roasted and dry hoppy finish.
Very caronated.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2009
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Deep brown colour, mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is caramel malts, sourness, wooden burnt notes as well as some slight coffeeishness. Flavour is roasted malts, alcohol, some spices and herbs. Quite complex, but a bit too burnt and sticky sweet for my taste.

This beer is proof that good things can come in small packages - lots of potential here. Almost black and completely devoid of head or lacing. Aroma suggests cafe au lait and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is very smooth, tastes slightly of oak, faint sourness. Hints of black pepper and vanilla, with an edge of scotch. Finishes with licorice. Very complex. Would like to see it after laying down for a couple of years.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton. Opaque dark brown beer with a small pale tan head. Palate is minerally crisp. Flemish red sourness with dark fruits and a little lactose. Light finish. Didn’t pick up the extra additives here.

2014. Vanilla now obvious if still not dominant. Smooth but not smacking anything out of the park.

omhper (25808) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2007
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.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of Bov. Hazy, dark brown with a tint of red and a dense, retentive, beige head. Interesting, spicy, peppery nose. Rather sweet with burned malt accents and some spiciness. Fairly burned, bitter finish. A very different but also very excellent Imperial Stout. 110108
