VDuquerroux (2112) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - APR 23, 2018
Monday, April 23, 2018. Bottle, 12 fl.oz. Bottled 2 years ago. Purchase ("Bier Market", @Nantes, FR). Home. A sparkling black beer with a beige foamy head ; good retention ; good lacing. Light caramel, candied fruits, prune notes, black chocolate, red berries. Medium round sweet, medium dry bitter refreshing. Good body, oily texture, soft gaseous, sweet roasted fruity dry finish. Overall, delicious ! Yes, I loved the fruity caramel chocolate character ; balanced and highly "drinkable" :) I didn't get coffee aroma.

I bought this along with a single of Old Plowshare (organic), and liked this just a bit better...but not really sure. They seemed very similar in style, but this one was a little more robust and darker in appearance. Besides that not much of a difference, flavor is almost the same. This is less money too (non-organic), so that is a plus. I still like Lost Coast 8-ball Stout over any of these though.

seanos (9) - IRELAND - FEB 11, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 Roasted malts and chocolate on the nose. Pours with a decent head, little creamy. Roasted malt flavour, dark chocolate and a little nutty. Shame it’s not a tad creamier, but excellent stout for an autumn evening
