VDuquerroux (2040) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - JAN 17, 2018
Tuesday, January 16, 2018. Bottle, 33cL. 4.5%. Purchase (Chez Alain, @Rennes, FR). Home. A sparkling black beer with a big beige foamy head ; good retention ; good lacing. Roasted, black chocolate, rustic cereal, toasted notes, red berries notes. Light to medium dry bitter refreshing, light sweet, salty (yes once I read it, I think this beer gets more "thirst-quencher" than really "refreshing"). Medium body, light oily texture, soft gaseous, dry roasted sweet finish. Overall, really good ! Lubiere (14432) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2017

Noire, petit collet persistant.
Aromes pas tres intense, chocolat amere, reglisse.
La pointe de sel est perceptible mais reste tres legere. La carbo de fines bulles donne un aspect rond a cette biere titrant seulement a 4.5. Les saveurs torrrefies tapissent bien le palais.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Couleur marron/Noir. Effervescence moyenne. Chocolat amer et pointe salée. Bien faite Alengrin (6087) - BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2016
Salted porter from what is probably France’s most internationally oriented brewery of the moment, tasted from tap at Moeder Lambic Original. Very thick and frothy, regularly shaped, pale yellowish beige, very dense head, blackish robe but still largely translucent under bright light, with burgundy hue. Aroma of coffee grounds, toasted hazelnuts, leather, dried seaweed, black olive, dry tea leaves, fig, hard butterscotch candy, some vanilla and milk sugar. Restrained dry fruitiness, only subduedly sweetish with hints of dried fig and raisin, vague baked banana aspect, followed by a thick but ’dry’ umami edge, somewhat reminiscent of dried seaweed (I guess this represents the salty factor) or dried mushrooms, caramelly and deeply nutty, toasted malt bittersweetness in the middle, ending in lots of burnt toast, all the while effectuating a sharpish carbonation which impairs the mouthfeel a bit and does not seem entirely fit for the style. Ends dry and bitter, but softly so, remaining creamy and rounded, wiht peppery hops and lingering coffeeish roasted bitterness. Decent but a bit ’generic’, I expected the saltiness to come through more clearly as well, but in relation to the rest of French brewing, this is more daring and outspoken than usual. yespr (49519) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2016
