Arve_Christian (4937) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2014
On bottle from Beermerchant a while back. Pitch black color, massive offwhite foam ( and it had been standing still for weeks)- high carbonation. Aromas of coffee, leather, licorice and malt- lighter dried fruits; medium aroma intensity. Good bitterness and balance. Very enjoyable

7/IX/14 - 33cl bottle from 5de Gents Bierfestival @ home - BB: 12/VI/14, bottled: 12/VI/13 (2014-971)

Clear dark brown to black beer, huge creamy beige head, very stable, adhesive. Aroma: fruity, hops, bit soapy, sweet, some caramel. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, some caramel, roasted, mocha, sweet touch, but also fruity bitter hops, citrus, bit floral. Aftertaste: mocha, coffee, hops, citrus, little sour, bit grassy, could pass as a Black IPA, I think, though the kind of BIPA that leans more towards stout than towards IPA.

bartlebier (3630) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle [email protected] Archen Bires 08/2014. Pours a thinner opaque dark brown, well-carbed head. Tangy nose composed of roast going into charred wood and some mineral brine. Lighter mouthfeel than expected, making the mineral and char notes dominate over cocoa powder and coffee grounds, which enter in the aftertaste. Overall well-composed, light, enjoyable.

poech73 (378) - Braine, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle @10th Archenbires Festival. Stout doux malt et houblonn avec finesse.
Avec un nez peu avenant, je mattendais du lourd: fortes senteurs torrfies de caf frachement moulu, sirop de malt quelques effluves lactes, de la levure, pas damertume. En bouche, cest la surprise : aucune lourdeur. Cest en fait une dgustation en deux temps: dabord, je reois lavant les saveurs torrfies, le caramel avec une belle rondeur mais plutt timorres; ce nest quen retrait que je got des armes de caf la rglisse accompagn de cette levure pice sur des notes poivres. La finale est finement amre, la fois minrales et herbaces sur une longueur moyenne. En retro, le got de caf revient avec des saveurs de pain dpice. Bien balance, mme si elle manque de virilit mon got. A siroper au coin du feu lors de longues soires dhiver!
