Noir c’est Noir !
Une stout au noir intense et a la belle mousse persistante. Les aromes traditionnels de cafe et de chocolat montent vite au nez et se retrouvent egalement sur le final. Une belle rondeur et un equilibre bien travaille. Elle sent "la mer" cette belle Stout des 2 Caps ! cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 31, 2008

Irish blackness meets Bambergian smokiness at the French Côte d’Opale. sir__v (2618) - FRANCE - APR 5, 2015

<i>Bottled. </i> Dark ruby/black, rich firm beige head. Aroma of coffee and dusty fruit salad. Very dry with light body and rounded mouthfeel. There’s chocolatey with some toffee, fairly low bitterness. A velvetty very drinkable dry stout! oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2010
Bottled. Very deep brown, close to black with mediumsized foamy/fluffy head. Aroma is liquorice, some mild old coffeelike sourness as well as some slight grassy and floral notes. Flavour is roasted malts, liquorice, coffee, ashes and some caramel/toffeelike notes. Actually a very pleasant Stout.

Strong coffee aroma with a hint of chocolate. Black, light brown head, good lace. Sweetish, light bitter, malty, lots of coffee, licorice wood, hint of vanilla. Flavourful, easy, balanced.
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. humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - MAR 30, 2012
(33 cl bottle from Brdr. D; Batch 211; BBD: December 31st 2013) Pours black with medium, creamy, toffee head. Good lace and retention. A pleasant aroma that is mostly roasted malt with perhaps some coffee notes. Creamy texture, medium carbonation, medium body with a roasted finish. Flavour is balanced and relatively dry. Neither bitter nor sweet. A pleasant and quite drinkable stout for the ABV.
