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 (4208) - 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.

Keg. Pours dark brown. Aroma of roast malts, burnt wood, vanilla and dark chocolate. Moderate sweet and bitter. A little thinner than I’d prefer in an imp stout but enjoyable.

ThreeCats (850) - ISRAEL - NOV 26, 2016
Very bark clear brown with tan head. Aroma is interesting, chocolate and pepper, some red wine, unusual for an imperial stout. Taste has a lot of roast, chocolate, and coffee, but the dominating wine notes seem to distract from that. As a classic imperial stout, it’s not very good. As a cuvee, it is interesting, but the combination of chocolate, coffee, ash, and sour notes is not the best. It’s obviously a beer of a very particular niche, and I’m not sure how many people would truly enjoy it. I prefer a classic example myself...

Bawelt (628) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 29, 2016
Inattendue mais pas aussi bonne que ce à quoi je m’attendais. Le nez est déjà surprenant, plein de levures, assez houblonné (on dirait une black IPA), notes boisées (genre chêne), quelques agrumes, un fond café. La bouche est surprenante également : attaque boisée, légèrement acide, pas mal de levures vites soutenues par les houblons verts et agrumes. Peu de vraie torréfaction mais une certaine amertume noire. Assez surprenante.

Keg @Salt Horse, Edinburgh. [Ratings Backlog:May] Pours brown, slight red tinge, off white head. Nose is sweet, dark sugar, toffee and fruity, the taste is along the same lines.

johndoughty (5090) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2016
Bottle. Rating number 5K and what an experience. Bought from the wonderful Cotteridge Wines.Shopping here is an out of the world experience. The owners Jaz and Kal are gentlemen in the true sense of the word and have helped me expand my beer horizons like nobody else has. This beer comes in a swing top bottle. Lovely black appearance with a massive head that took time to dissipate. Lovely creamy flavour with a floral background. Very smooth without the sharp bitterness that beers of this style can have. Very easy to drink considering its strength. A monumental beer. Thanks again Jaz and Kal.

dimeon (60) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 9, 2016
A: Pours dark blackish red with a very faint head. Some sediment floating around. Hints of marmite and oak on the nose. T: Dark roasted malts, with berry-like fruitiness and a grip from the oak influence. Other fruits, such as peach and guava are also in the background. P: Long finish of fruits and dark malts, with very little discernible bitterness. Excellent beer. The dark fruits and summer fruits don’t always match up perfectly, however.
