VDuquerroux (1398) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - SEP 29, 2015
Bottle, 33cL. 2.5 years old. 10C. Home. A shining black beer with a small beige head ; poor retention. Landscape of coffee (++), chocolate, roast, toast, sugar, alcohol ; no fruit. Light to medium sweet, medium dry bitter ; warming background. Medium to full body, thin oily texture, flat, lasting bittersweet coffee finish, warming note. Overall, delicious, looks like a coffee, nice coffee aroma with good bitterness. I understand people who expects more taste depth but honestly I dont care right now.
