Aroma: prunes and caramel.Taste: sweet molasses, subtle bitterness of dark chocolate and pine flavour. Not as creamy as expected, but a great beer!

Pitch black with ruby reflections and small brown head. Sme?l is cocoa and roasted coffee. So is the taste plus smoked wood, by it feels like it lacks something in the mouth, which makes it a bit lightweight.

Stout en version crème, c’est un peu comme le café crème …, d’un niveau abv de 6,5 %. Brassé avec un blend de 5 malts locaux, dont orge et blé. Houblonnage en challenger, fuggles et progress. Rappelons que la source locale qui approvisionne la brasserie date de quelques 700 ans, ceci fait plaisir !! Mon exemplaire était à 5 mois avant sa date. Couleur noir intense, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse en nappage soyeux brun foncé. Arômes de chocolat, café, moka, pointe de cappuccino. 1ère bouche très souple, à la superbe entame café/chocolat/malt torréfié. Arrière-bouche très fine, avec un petit feu de brindilles. 2ème sur un complexe chocolat/café/chicorée. Arrière-bouche avec ganache, fève de cacao. 3ème avec café et chicorée très élégants. Arrière-bouche avec pointe de stracciatella. Longueur avec du tabac brun, écorce de chêne. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool bien, il gère les saveurs sur la longueur. Finale aux très grandes nuances. CONCLUSION : la source de 700 ans a produit tout son effet de douceur sur cette bière … Le brasseur a quand même eu la bonne idée d’y ajouter 6,5 % d’abv, ce qui n’est pas monnaie courante en Angleterre, et nous en lui en savons gré .. En plus de cela, le souvenir de "cream" pour les bons blueseux, et nous une totale savoureuse. Un très beau stout, et vive cream ...

Pours almost black with nice reddish hints. Low mocha head, decent retention and hints of lacing. Aroma is soft milk coffee and vanilla with the slightest dusty hint. It’s rather simple but clean and quite intense. Taste has a sweet foundation, milk coffee and the slightest hint of roasted malts, again vanilla and maybe a hint of berries. Overall medium sweet and light to medium bitter, with a touch of burnt caramel in the finish. Medium bodied with very low carbonation, slightly creamy. Goes down easy and feels ok, not much else.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2017 Bottle from Systembolaget (6,5%). Dark with small beige crown. Aroma is fruit, chocolate and coffee. Taste is a bit chokolate-like. Bitter tail. Overall tasty.
