50cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff.
Brune foncée, beige/moka.
Arôme malté grillé, note de tabac et fumé, malt léger pale et ambre.En bouche, une bière aux proportions maltées généreuses, superbement brin grillée et torréfiée avec très belle note de café laissant un relent d’expresso, crémeuse avec des notes de café au lait. Une note de houblon vient rajouter une modeste note d’amertume. Un vrai régal et facile à boire à 5.5% Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2011
(Bottle) Pours dark brown with a light brown head. The aroma holds coffee powder, dark bread and grains up front. Undertones of salty soy, burned cookies, resin, hard roasted nuts, salt, liquorice root, crisp bread, old cigar, old wood house, wet ashtray and wet earth. Just a touch of hops in the background – resin, spices and herbs. I am a malt head so this beer is right up my alley. The flavor is light sweet to dry, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic in the finish. Tones of burned coffee, soy, crisp bread, earthy hops, cigar smoke, ashtray, roots burned cookies and hard roasted nuts. The mouthfeel is round, soft and light velvety with a light tom medium carbonation. Burned coffee, dark bread and balanced hoppy finish lingers. Medium bodied. Really good.
