Zarrach76 (163) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 25, 2016
Bičre bien noire avec une mousse ivoire ŕ bulles trčs fines persistante sur quelques millimčtres. Le nez est sur les céréales, avec une pointe de mélasse, de caramel, de levures... Odeurs de cave, de champignons. Pas terrible tout ça. Bičre un peu flotteuse, carbonatation faible, la premičre gorgée révčle les houblons, des céréales torréfiés qui donnent dans le sarrasin et c’est ŕ peu prčs tout. Texture un peu huileuse. Trčs franchement, on dirait de l’eau sale. Le bas du panier en matičre de brunes Allemandes. J’arrive ŕ peine ŕ la finir, et pourtant je me force car par principe on ne jette pas une bičre ! Ou alors juste pour la tambouille, et encore... Bouteille 50cl, V&B Grenoble.

MelvinKalksma (1297) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2016

Slight aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, bread and roasted malts.

Turbid/opaque ruby/black beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts, caramel and dark fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread and roasted malts.

This beer is rather balanced, but lacks intensity and complexity. Really drinkable and tastes decent, but lacks so much.
