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.

Grovlam (4253) - Copenhagen, - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle. [Great two day tasting session @ Papsoe] Huge light brown thick and creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Muddy black like color. Aroma of light sweet chocolate and coffee. Light fruit. Over the palate some wood, roasted malt, dried fruit. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation and somewhat alcoholic and thick texture. Moderated to heavy sweet flavor with some bitter notes. Roasted malt and light chocolate finish.

Batch 2016 bottle from the duty-free shop (hah!) at Basel airport. Near-black with a fine tan foam and a sweet treacle and creamy-yeasty nose reminiscent almost of Hefeweizen if it weren't for the faintly drying note of alcohol. Rich and sweet, yet with a creamy-dry overlay. Notes of cocoa, tar, vanilla and burnt treacle, with hints of pepper and bitter chocolate in the finish. Lovely!

Aromă medie, mult malț ușor prăjit, cereale prăjite, lemn ușor ars, cafea măcinată învechită, ceva fructe negre. Gust mediu dulce de zahăr siropos ușor ars, mult malț prăjit, puțin malț ars, amăreală arsă, puțină cafea și lemn ars. Bună, cu multă arsură plăcută, dar cu un gust dulce artificial.

Herbata mocno. Pieprz tez. Ris niemocno, ciala niewiele. Herbata a la taniny. Ufo, ale raczej sympatyczne, mimo, ze nie pod moj gust. Ciekawe

Almost like a smoky biscuit. Vanilla and pepper definitely come through; otherwise, flavours of malt, smoke, chocolate, and nuts. Smells of potpourri, but in an appealing way, not your grandma’s-foyer-sort of way. Like most BFM beers, perhaps not to everyone’s taste and definitely not your typical imp stout, but I’m a huge fan

Bottle. Cloudy dark brown, good foam. Aroma: malt, coffee, caramel, dried fruits, a little ash. Taste: sweet, wild, aspirin, caramel, prunes,dried apples, bitterness, very strange.

Pours with a dark brown body with a thin head with some lacing. It’s smokey with sweet malt notes and a little roast. Medium bodied and smooth.

Fizzy pour. Light body and not intensely black. Light. Very light bodied for the abv. Big creamy head. Malty spikey roasty spicy caramel coffee nose. Seems a growing trend for this lightish spritzy Euro stouts with high ABV. Definitely unique and individual but could do with more density for me.

Spicy coffee-y smell. Attack a bit light but develops a very contained pepper aroma and a too subtle vanilla note, that I won’t have found if I hadn’t read the ingredients. Couldn’t find the russian tea anywhere. Body is definitely not heavy enough for an imperial stout. No finish at all except a very small bitterness and a bit of warmness after 30s, probably due to the spice.
