Superbe brune black Ipa belge qui rappelle un bon porter ou une impérial stout houblonnée ! Caramel café et amertume belge, un mélange idéal ?

Very dark brown color, average sized off white head. Aroma is very fruity, malty, touch of licorice, slightly herby. Taste is also very fruity, licorice, coffee, caramel, roast, nuts, malty, not much bitterness but still lovely hoppy finish. Slightly dry. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Alcohol is nicely hidden. Great stuff.

poech73 (420) - Braine, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2015
From l’Amère à Boire. Bière brune forte bien de chez nous sucrée, caramélisée avec des relents de levure. Son nez fort aromatique, à la fois fleuri et fruité, annonce un corps robuste. En bouche, je perçois un grain fort torréfié aux arômes de cacao un peu acre ccompagné d’une saveurs de fruits rouges acidulés comme la prune, la mûre et se termine avec beaucoup de saveurs sur une sensation lactée de levures argileuse. Mon bémol: cette bière tire un peu dans tous les sens: très maltée, caramélisée, fruitée et aromatique avec un alcool tenace qui coupe les jambes, et puis la trop forte amérisation laisse le palais visqueux mais en surpassant ce beau maltage, c’est dommage.

eManu (552) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2015
From a 33cl, pours a dark brown body with a nice creamy light beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, hints of chocolates and spices. Flavors are great, roasted malts, herbs, chocolates, hops and spices. hints off cookie and bread and caramels. Texture is creamy and yet dry, nice full body with a nice smooth bitterness. I love this balance and mixed of great strong flavors. Wonderful.

Sample at SBWF 2015. Black body with a minor head. Roasted notes, chocolate and some citrus.

Bottle at the lowlander in drury lane. Stale vegetable aroma which is none too pleasing, but a pleasant coffee roasted malt flavour, astringent in character. Bitter chocolate malt finish, quite impressive.

3.9
ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2015
Bottle at Gents Bierfestival. Weard I never tried this before. Roast, light bitterness, quite sweet and malty. I would’ve liked more tropical fruits, and American hops in this. Maybe it wasn’t as fresh as it should’ve been? Decent enough.

charlotte (5414) - rødovre, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle.Dark brown colour with medium head.Aroma of cocoa and dark dried fruits,mild coffee and brown sugar nice malty with smooth note of syrup and caramel.

3.4
Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 18, 2015
from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier - very dark brown beer under a solid long lasting beige foam; nice lace-work; licorice and black cherries dominate the nose; full-bodied and quite sweet; fairly bitter, some residual sweetness in a long hoppy finish showing notes of prunes, black cherries and licorice - quite simplistic and lacking a bit of dimension
