COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich and chocolatey A proper imperial stout brewed with chocolate & caramel malts, and dark roasted barley. The flavour is immediately rich and chocolatey, giving way to espresso notes. It finishes with a great waft of citrus from a generous blend of our favourite hops.

Bouteille à 7 mois avant sa date, versée brune tirant sur le noir, opaque, avec une mousse dense carrément marron, rappelant un peu la St-Ambroise de McAuslan... Le nez est fort intéressant en ceci qu’il est une combinaison assez réussie entre un Stout et une IPA avec de très belles notes d’agrumes (citron, pamplemousse). On retrouve avec bonheur le cacao, le café, le caramel légèrement brûlé, le marron, le pain d’épice, le pain noir, du pruneau, de la noisette, un peu de mûre et de pêche de vigne... Quelle élégance et quelle fraicheur ! La bouche est d’une richesse incroyable en terme en corps, on dirait vraiment qu’on mange plus qu’on ne boit cette bière à l’instar d’une Guinness (en plus épais encore, c’est dire...) ! L’alcool est au niveau de ses 6%, sans trop de force non plus, l’amertume est légère mais longue et parfaitement équilibrée, les levures sont douces, la texture veloutée. Les malts torréfiés sont délicieux, les sucres résiduels jamais écœurants avec une belle douceur, le final est sur l’amertume avec ses agrumes en fond de bouche exclusivement et ces superbes notes cacao/café sur le pourtour. Ce Stout n’est pas d’une grand complexité mais d’un équilibre et d’une texture superbes ! Un alcool plus costaud avec des esters plus expressifs et on avait un Imperial Stout de très haute volée ! Mais ici, nous nous contenterons de ce que le Stout peut nous offrir de meilleur, rien que ça... Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

Butelka 330ml. Czarny kolor bez refleksow. Piana bezowa,srednia o drobnych pecherzach,opada dosc szybko do obreczy. W zapachu dominuja palone nuty,czekolada,lukrecja i ciemne owoce. Calkiem niezle nagazowane. W smaku dosc chmielowe ,palone nuty czekoladowe i kawy dodaja goryczki.,karmel i ciemne owoce ze sliwka i czarna porzeczka. Niezle piwo z dobrze uwydatniona czekolada.

6%ABV. Stout. Poured out black. 40SRM. Nose is sweet, malty and beery. Hints of coffee and liniment or Chinese medicine. Mouthfeel is cold coffee. Palate has roasty flavors of burnt multigrain toast, black bread. Other flavors are coffee, ripe dark fruit with plums and honey prunes being most obvious. Hops are noble and add length to the woody, burnt log bitter flavor. Finishes medium with a burnt twig bitter. Overall a pretty nicely rounded out stout. Not too watery, pronounced carbonation with a solid palate of roasty, bready flavors without being sweet and with a hint of fruitiness finishing well.

330ml bottle. A lovely dark, creamy coffee centred beer that effervescences in the mouth. Subtle tones of clove. A well rounded drink that slips down very easy!

TBone (18099) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 4, 2017
Tap at Black Door, Helsinki. Opaque black, creamy beige head. Minty, toasted aroma. Medium-bodied. Minty hoppyness, licorice, toasted malts, cold coffee. Short finish. Empty. Feels overrated.

SinH4 (6124) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle, many thanks minutemat! Black color with big dark beige head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, and a surprising amount of grassy hops with some citrus. Taste is light, a bit tart, with liquorice, grassy and piney hop oils, then more dark malts with coffee, some ash. Dry finish with liquorice, citrus-earthy hops and a hint of chalk. Soft silky mouthfeel. Very flavourful for this strength, and yet quite elegant in its lightness. Very good!

3.6
uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Pours black, opaque. Brown head. Aroma has cloves. Citrus flavors on the finish. Reminds me a of a cloved orange. Full body, maybe a little chalky. Quite decent.
