COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière d’un noir intense, coiffée d’une mousse moka laissant de riches traces de dentelle sur le verre. Nez généreux de café chocolat et de houblons herbacés. Ronde et crémeuse en bouche, l’amertume est soulignée par un trait anisé qui s’efface sèchement dans une douceur de sucre candi.

the sauger (33) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2017
Bouteille de 375 ml. Couleur noire avec un joli col foncé. Arôme de chocolat, de café et de houblon fleural. Goût de café, de pain grillé et de fleur. La finale est sèche et agréable. En gros, c’est une bonne bière.

AssKicker (307) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - DEC 30, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2016 Bue à la pression. Couleur noire intense, mousse beige qui a de l?endurance, nez qui semble être sur le whisky de prime abord. Ça se remet à mousser en bouche avec des notes de moka/praline, puis chocolat en fin de bouche. Pas mon genre, moi qui n?aime pas le café, mais ça passe.

Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Appearance is a blackish brown with a huge tan head that retains exceptionally well. Taste is coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, earth. Palate is medium-thin with a dry and roasty finish. Overall- Well balanced and quite drinkable.

Diogène (1203) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2016
Bouteille. Bière noire opaque surmontée d’une épaisse mousse moka assez touffue qui tient bien la route. Au nez elle offre des arômes de café, de chocolat noir et de grains torréfiés avec une légère touche fruitée avec cassonade. En bouche les mêmes saveurs sont présentes avec une amertume modérée en finale et un corps léger mais légèrement crémeux.

Klares dunkles rotbraun mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Röstmalzig, etwas Kaffee, Mokka, dunkle Schokolade, etwas Vanille, leicht würzig.

Lore (2382) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 28, 2016
dark brown, almost black colour, moderate sized beige-ish head; aroma of cocoa powder, dark chocolate, ash, some dried plum and sour cherry, as well as peated notes; taste is the same with considerably less intensity; a bit watery, which is fully acceptable taking into account that it is "only" a dry stout

Werckmeister (2512) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 9, 2016
0,375l bottle at home bought from Firmabier (I think). Bottle says 130215, which I guess means bottled on. There was another label on the bottle which seems to have been torn off. black color, medium big coffee-colored head. smells milky, earthy, light yoghurt, spices, some licorice, light parfumy. decent smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes lightly sweet, some licorice, earthy, light yoghurt, spices. finishes lightly sweet with notes of licorice, some yoghurt and spices. still ok, but seems to be rather old.

gunnar (8430) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2016
On tap at Cirkus, Stavanger. Pours black with a small head. Aroma of caramel, weak roast and new roasted coffee. Taste is moderate sweet, dark roasted malts, coffee. Soft carbonated. Lingering roast and coffee.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Opaque black with a nice head definition. The 1 finger head is light brown and creamy, lasting around 10-15 minutes, but making no legs. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, smoked salmon and bacon, faint molasses, herbal spices. Creamy light body with a strong intensity. Lacks a little freshness being dry and bitter, with a present sugary feel. Ends with an earthy smoked bacon aftertaste. A mix between a dry stout and a rauchbier. Overall decent craft: the flavors are nice but the feel is a little off, can be a little harsh, too oily and too thin.
