COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En un temps lointain dans le Valois, alors que la bataille faisait rage, un incendie ravagea le grenier grains de la ferme St. Rieul, dtruisant ainsi les rcoltes et rduisant les villageois la famine. Des ruines fumantes, il ne resta que lorge grill, qui, lorsque la pluie arriva, se transforma en une boisson surprenante. Dun grand malheur nacquit un dlicieux nectar, la Stout St. Rieul, cet elixir au got prononc et la mousse onctueuse...

yeastforbrains (3) - FRANCE - JAN 17, 2014 does not count
Appearance: Dark brown, near black. No head, just spots of white froth on surface Nose: Intense chocolate, creamy, rich, roasty coffee, and ripe strawberry/raspberry dessert. Sweet and fruity stouty. No hop. Flavour: Imperial Stout. Softly carbonated. Medium to full body, sweet, malty chocolate, coffee, vanilla and dried fruit, perfectly balanced by neutral hop bitterness. Final words: Every sip is a delight. "Brune" is an understatement. Nothing "brown ale" about it. This really is a rich, roasty, creamy, full-flavoured, Imperial Stout.
