1.69/5  rDev -24.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.75

dark reddish color, almost opaque, not very firm head

smell is somewhat chemical, strong malts and some barley as well

taste is can be best described as pepsi crossed with orange juice with the add of some plain alcohol: sticky artificial sweetness and citric acids .... in a blind tasting I highly doubt I would have considered this being any kind of beer ...

really not sure why this brew gets exported ....

Very sweet black beer, no evidence of any roast grains. As mentioned previously, like "A rum and coke" gone flat. Mouthfeel is light/watery, not much lingering aftertaste. Aroma also is overly sweet (sugary).

Modest starting head that settles to rim bubbles. A couple of spots for lace. The color is brown where light can pass--definitely not black.

Very mild smell of dark and dry malts.

The taste is far sweeter, almost as if there were corn syrup added. I find this distracting and disappointing. However, it is better than most offerings in France. Full bodied and low carbonation. The lingering aftertaste is cloy and sweet, like the aftermath of having a hard candy.

Pours dark brown beer with ordinary 2-finger golden head. Not very good aroma: too liquory, caramel and cardboard. Taste is sweet and repulsive, like weak alcohol was mixed with synthetic ingredients, neither good malts, nor hints of real hops. Rather low carbonation, absolutely failed beer.
