Koelschtrinker (23070) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 1, 2016
Intensiv röstig-malziger Antrunk, passende starke Hopfigkeit. Deutlich Kaffee im Mittelteil, gepaart mit grasig-süßen und leicht bitteren Noten. Vollmundig, geringe Spuren von Alkohol. Voluminöser und sehr langer Nachhall, weich röstig, sehr bitter, was aber gut eingebunden wird, frisch hopfig. Bisher das beste französiche Bier das ich kenne! 11/13/13/14/12/13

Fin (11341) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle from Village De La Bière, Strasbourg consumed at Fischers Fritz Camping, Kirchner, Nr Zurich, Switzerland, Friday 24th June 2016. Pours black with a slim light beige head, a little black treacle and hops combine, hops linger longer though. Of all the Matten beers I’ve had so far this wins out. Good fruity black IPA, enjoying this. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Maakun (7234) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle shared. Black with enormous beige head, hard to pour this one. Roasted malts, light chocolate, all kinds of tropical fruits with passion fruits, pineapple. Some lychee and dried peach. Underneath the hops there’s some coffee and light tart dried berries. Light sweet, medium bitter and a light sour kick at the end. Medium bodied with quite some fizzy but soft carbonation.

jaghana (6482) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle 33cl, a dark beer with huge copper head and proper lace work. Nose is on licorice, brown caramel and hop resin. Aroma is intense on dry licorice, coffee, green vegetables, exotic fruits, very bitter, espresso notes, lot of roasted notes at the finish. Body is oily, grassy / licorice notes, bit too much bittering hops versus aromatic hops on my point of view. Still pleasant and robust beer.

sjogro (5534) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle shared by Maakun at ExABC. Flowery hoppy dandelion. Roasted chocolate malts. Sweet with strong herbal bitter. Light sweet, very fresh hoppy bitterness. Medium fat body and medium carbo. Like!

Calisky (3325) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JAN 2, 2016
Enorme gushing et mousse.. la moitié de la bouteille! Couleur noire, bonne mousse beige. Nez houblonné et tannique, malt caramel et résineux. Gout café, tannique, malt noir, réglisse, fruité et exotique. Bon corps. Fin de bouche amère, fruitée, grillée. Plus sur le black et grillé que l’ipa, mais c’est vraiment pas mal!
