Bottle at home, pouring total black opaque with a firm brown head. The aroma is full and fatty, nearly breathtaking, pàààff! Lot of elements in the nose, including wood, licorice, dark malts, choco. Taste is very alcoholic and fullbodied; medium sweet and light to medium bitter, light coffee notes. OK carbonation, soft oily/velvety mouthfeel. This is great! Very rich and nice RIS.

Batch: 027028. BB: 05-2018. Bois et épices. Notes rôties derrière le duo sec de caramel et de chocolat. Touche fruitée. Texture mousseuse en bouche. Définitivement une contamination. Herbes? Le houblonnage n’est certainement de type américain. Douteux. Mes papilles ne se trompent pas: maladif liquide.
