Une petite bouteille produite le 3 janvier 2013. Une bire presque noire avec une mousse beige. Un nez simple de caf, de chocolat et de tabac. Une bouche crmeuse avec des saveurs se raprochant du nez. Facile et agrable sans tre trop complexe.

Un mince voile, qui ne recouvre pas la surface au complet et qui contient une multitude de grumeaux en suspension dans ce liquide noir. Le caf du matin ressemble a, o de le mlasse et de lanis ne seraient pas trs loin de la carafe. Le pain au levain, ou un bon pumpernickel, auquel on retrouve une certaine acidit et une amertume qui sapparente au caf noir, aprs y avoir ajout un petit contenant de crme, sont les principales particularits gustatives. On a parfois limpression que le pain commence griller. (Embouteille le 3 jan 2013) (792-240813)

My Bottom Line:
Caramel and chocolate chips lead to a fruity second half in this effervescent Extra Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the brown-edged blackness.
-This doesnt feel like 8% at all.
-The nose isnt too exciting for the style.
-Light roastiness is occasionally tasted.
-This was great with steak on the grill.

Bottle.

Une petite bouteille ne le 3 janvier 2013. Une bire presque noire. De nombreux sdiments en suspension. Un col beige de bonne dimension. Une dentelle qui tente de sorganiser. Pour moi, un nez qui offre un mlange de caramel et de caf chocolat avec des parfums de tabac pipe. Pour mes papilles, un mlange de notes chocolates, de fruits foncs, dpices et de caf. Pour mon palais, un corps plutt dans la normalit avec un ptillement relch et une texture lgrement crmeuse. Pour la finale, une situation plus ou moins asschante car touche par une douceur caramlise et mme chocolate.

Pours a dark brownish-blackish-ruby-hued when held up to the light sorta color. The head is rocky and large with lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is complicated & interesting... it comes right away with some chocolate, then some smoke, gives way to to some dark fruit & odd banana esters, theres some charred wood in there... gracious. I sort of love it, but then I sort of think the banana stuff brings it down a notch. What a delightfully odd smelling beer.

The flavor is similarly strange and somehow delightful, the chocolate flavor is hardly reminiscent of sweet chocolate at all, its more like the 80%+ end bitter chocolate, which pretty much is awesome. The beer is far from "dry" though, its got a light caramel sweetness to it that makes some of the more bitter and bold flavors work better than maybe they could on their own devices. There is certainly a good lot of roastiness going on here, ashy... espresso like, strong, stark, roastiness. Some of that fruity phenol thing come through but not to the degree that it does in the aroma.
sa thinker this one.

Bottle. Dark brown color. Taste is coffee, chocolate and more hoppy than most stouts. Aroma is coffee.
