Huge, greige head leaving fine lace; completely opaque black-brown beer. Roasted malts, dark aromatic malts, bitter chocolate, hazelnuts - but nothing very outspoken, subdued. Nice sourish-vegetable taste (rhubarb?), mint, liquorice ("jap"), woody, bitter chocolate - and very good balance! Medium bodied, "false" texture by the dark malts, long bitter sourish aftertaste. That’s a good one. Nice balance - maybe just a touch too persistent sour, but a very good try. Thanks Alex! madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2004
Bottled: Dark brown coloured. Brownish medium head. Roastyness, chocolate and some coffee in the nose. Liquorice, chocolate and some fruitnotes in the flavour. Ends up pretty bitter. Nice one. Ungstrup (38381) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2004
A black beer with a chocolate brown head. It is very explosive. It doesn’t have much aroma only hints of chocolate and coffee. The flavor is slightly sour with notes of chocolate and coffee. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2004
Dark brown coloured. Aroma of hops, wood and malt. Coffee flavour. Roasty malt bitterness. Some acidic notes. fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2004
Brown color; big creamy head, brownish. Very nice aroma, sour, woody; reminds the forests and the cellars, the crust of a hard cheese… Medium body strength, astringent in the front; a good mix of caramel and malt, sourness and bitterness, light liquorice and very light roasted malts. Really an original and interesting beer, from Switzerland. Thanks Philippe (Bov)!

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2004 Bottled. Reddish black with lively head. Acidic black cherry aroma. Medium bodied, Clean maltiness, with some roasty coffee and near lambic-ish notes. Bitterish finish. As always with BFM their beers are interesting and very unusual. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Thanks to Bov for this one. The Cuvee pours medium bodied, dark brown with a meringue-like tan head. Its head is very effervescent. it's very dry & bitter. It's a nice dry stout. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 2, 2003
very dark in colour, the head is giant and creamy with a beautiful lacing, the aroma shows roasted coffee, prune and some flowery notes, it is smooth with a very strong bitterness, the finish is very long, dry and very bitter with reminiscence of coffee - a wonderful beer; not for the average Swiss ...
