3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big darkish brown head. Opaque black body. Roasty toffee and wild
berry aroma with chewing gum notes. Dry roasty chocolatey taste with
blueberry notes. Mid-bodied, maybe a little on the thin side. Flat,
mealy mouthfeel. Dryish roasty chewing gum and dark chocolate
aftertaste with mineraly sooty notes. It’s nice. A bit odd, but
nice. (0.33l bottle, from a shop in Montpellier, France.)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep brown body and bubbly brown head. Sweet hot chocolate, chilli, raisin, figs, sweaty and dry cacao. Taste is sweaty yeast, bit dry, chocolate cake. Well developed, flavourful brew. Obviously richer and thicker than the 3.9% alcohol version and at 6.6% this is quite rich. Bit sticky, bit warming. Nothing too extreme but very well made. Very tasty and a bit underrated I think. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with Deanso. After a terrible gush over my dinner it poured a rather nice, but too small black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and a little whiskey. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice enough, but what’s the point in a beer that you can’t drink because most of it ends up on the floor.. Low overall rating for the extreme gush

Super gusher :-( I’m marking it down for that. Not much left to taste.
Ok, tan head. Clear black pour. Lovely rich taste. Pity about the bad gushing
