Brasseurs du Monde est décevant ces temps-ci. Ils tentent de jongler avec le marcher qui évolue trop vite pour eux en sortant une tonne de nouveaux produits qui ne sont pas à la hauteur. Ils ont déjà été dans mes favoris, il y a quelques années...

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a medium size brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of star anise with light roasted malt/black chocolate notes and some residual sugar notes. Taste is a great mix between some black chocolates notes with loads of star anise notes and some residual sugar notes. Body is about average with good c carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I am not the biggest fan of the brewery and the previous ratings are quite bad but I actually really enjoyed this one.

341ml bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Black with about half a finger of tan head. The head disappears quickly and leaves some spiderweb-like foam on the surface with a slightly thicker ring around the edge of the glass. Pretty much what I'd expect from a beer this high in alcohol.

S: The bottle says that this one would age well and could take up port wine notes over the years. To me it already smells quite a lot like port! There is plenty of dark fruit here and it is pretty light on the roastiness. I get a hint of vanilla as well. It basically smells like an amped-down port (but still strong for a beer). Very nice.

T: Raisin and other dark fruit mostly. Quite a bit of licorice too. Again, I don't really get much chocolate, coffee, or roasty flavour. Surprisingly smooth for 11.5%, although it does leave a pretty boozey aftertaste.

M: I'd say it has a medium-plus body. It's pretty low in carbonation.

O: Enjoyable, and one to suggest to a red wine lover. The fruity flavours coming from the yeast definitely dominate. I quite like these flavours but I wouldn't mind if they were toned back a little bit to allow some other flavours to be noticed.

Thanks to TC for this one. Poured into Nonic. Poured an almost solid black, just a very light bit of brown translucence on the edges, with zero head. In fact the whole beer is very still, just a few light bubbles.

The aroma was a bit on the weak side, not much malt, very light roast, and a very light (but very enjoyable) hint of chocolate. There was a noticeable alcohol scent, not surprising for a 11.5% abv brew. On the tongue, The malt and roast were even more subdued, but the chocolate was a bit bolder. Somewhat surprisingly, the alcohol was barely noticeable on the palate.

The body was OK, but certainly on the thin side of what I look for in the style. Drinkability is decent, considering the overall lack of personality. Overall, not a bad brew, but not one that jumps out at you either. Probably worth a shot if you see it.
