Una bella birra scura dietro a una bella etichetta. profumo intenso e corposo; uva passa, caffe e una punta inacidita. Gusto ottimo. Caffe a profusione. Ottimo corpo. Ottimo tutto insomma.

Bottle from Bignens Vins. I bought a few random bottles from this brewery with pretty much zero expectations. All the others tried so far have exceeded expectations through being solid. This was actually really good. Dark black colour with a thick slightly off-white foam. Strong roasty flavours, coffee, treacle. None of the bitterness of a stout. Perhaps the tiniest hint of butter, but I wouldnt call that a flaw here. Drank clean and hid the alcohol very well, was amazed to see its more than 6%. Splendid stuff.

Pours an almost black beer with a small beige head. Nose of caramel malts, coffee and toast. Taste of roasted malts, coffee and sweet licorice. Full bodied with medium carbonation. A sweet and salty finish with hints of blueberries. Quite good!

330ml bottle from Drinks of the World, Basel (2.90 CHF):
Very nice & 1 of the better Swiss beers Ive tried. Good roasted malts & dark fruits alongside sugars & chocolate flavours plus a touch of smoke towards the end; great stuff & very much a beer that I wouldnt mind having again at some point.
