cask. Dark black pour. Boozy and sweet, with bourbon on top of coffee and chocolate. Was a little flat, maybe just this particular cask? Otherwise good.

Dark brown/black. The nose is really loaded with ripe dark fruit, cooked plums and rum/brandy back notes. Rich and fruity with some dark malt and a lot of plum and rich cocoa. Has an almost Belgian malt note - touches of vineous yeast and a hint of booziness. Damn tasty beer.

Bonne bière foncée, mais sans plus. Je n’ai rien trouvé d’extraordinaire. Ni bonne ni mauvaise...

THANK YOU! Draft glass @ Original Moeder. Black with a BIG mocha head. Nose is big umami & chocolate soaked in spirit, boozy mocha, mocha coated in spirit. Body is fizzy, interesting taste of huge coffee beans, mocha, chocolate coated in spirit, grains, vanilla,… low roast. Interesting beer, fizzy, coffee beans taste is huge, as well as sweet mocha chocolate soaked in strong spirit let us say rum. Rich, intriguing, a bit weird & maybe a touch too fizzy. At the end of the day, interesting & quickly enough to please.
