COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Make sure to enter the rating according to the abv but also to the distinct labels.

Big Mama Stout is brewed from 5 types of barley malt and some rye malt in combination with Summit and Willamette whole flower hops. It is then “dry-hopped” with American hops and cocoa nibs from Madagascar. Our Belgian dark beer will improve during the first year of aging by developing delicate aromas of chocolate balanced by a moderate bitterness. We recommend tasting it at cellar temperature.

Big Mama Stout est brassée à partir de 5 sortes de malt d’orge et une partie de malt de seigle en combinaison avec des fleurs de houblon Summit et Willamette. Elle est ensuite infusée à froid avec des houblons américains et du grué de cacao originaire de Madagascar. Notre bière sombre se bonifiera au cours de la première année de garde en développant des arômes délicats de chocolat balancés par une amertume moderée. Nous recommandons de la déguster à température de cave.

Fortement carboné pour un stout. Amertume prononcée. Légère pour un stout, plutôt un porter. Gout de cacao,torréfaction.

VDuquerroux (1719) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - APR 9, 2017
Bottle, 75cL. Home. @Naintré, France. Shared with my dad. A sparkling black beer with a big beige foamy head ; good retention. Red berries (blackberry, blackcurrant), roast, light black chocolate notes, toast, light herb. Medium round sweet, medium dry lasting bitter refreshing. Medium good body, light silky texture, good carbonation, fruity bitter lasting finish. Overall, good !

NordicV (2356) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2017

4.1
Ysok02 (1630) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2017
Un très beau Stout à la robe presque noire, mousse crémeuse beige, le nez allie des notes de café au chocolat noir, du malt torréfié, une pointe houblonnée. Bouche alliant ampleur et tension, bulle onctueuse, de la longueur et une finale acidulée et amère. Idéal sur le fondant au chocolat.
