Bottle at Le Supercoin, Paris on 29th November 2014. Deep red-black with pale tan head and almost no lacing. Roasty aroma with spices and hint of smoke. Richly spicy, herby and roasty in-mouth with sweet malts. Fruity finish with caramel and roast malts. Zingy mouthfeel and medium body. 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.
