(bottle, 33cl) Black coloured hue with a beige and tall foamy head. Moderately sweet, earthy and slightly leathery roast-malty aroma with hints of cacao and bubblegum. Mildly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry and roasty malt-character, again with earthy and leathery notes; dry, also a bit slim roasty malty finish. Light but pleasant. 11.I.12 brnandersen (4184) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2012

Bottle: abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2011
Big vast fluffy light brown to tan head on top of a black beer.
Smell vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, hints of coal, smoke and dark fruits.
Taste is a watery mix of coffee, roasted malts, light liquorice, light coal, hint of spices and a hint of earth.
A good bitter aftertaste with slight hints of coffee and herbs.
Low to medium carbo, soft light tingly mouthfeel, watery body and texture.
If the body was thicker and more towards creamy oily, this would be a very good stout. Nonetheless still ok.
Big bottle kindly shared by Sigmund. Label says Christophe Noyon Bière Noire de Slack. Once this beer was opened it was eager to leave the bottle, even before we started pouring. Clear, deep ruby body with a creamy, inch thick, light brown head. Spicy, roasted, yeasty and light sour aroma. Light sweet, light acidic and light bitter flavors with notes of ash and fruits along with roasted tones. Medium body. A tad watery, but smooth, Dry tongue.

A deep dark brown stout with a thick frothy brown head. In aroma, a herbaceous chocolate, with warming alcohol, peaty, a bit strange. In mouth, a light peaty chocolate with a nice smoky attack, burned wood, herbal, not bad. Bottle from Paris, bought in May 2011. Shared with probstk, Aug. 21 2011.
