Had this one on tap at The Frog & The Rosbif in Paris.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful dark black with a half inch head. Curious light white setiment around the middle of the glass.
Smell: Incrediably faint, so much so that it was hard to make anything out of it.
Taste: Smooth but tasteless front with a nice balanced grainy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but turns watery quickly.

Overall: Didn't live up to the beautiful exterior, rather bland and watery. As a warning though each Frog brewery brews their own beers so experiences may vary from pub to pub.

Serving type: on-tap

Tried on nitro-tap at the Frog & Rosbif in Paris.

Pours a deep, but fluid black-brown. Body is fairly lightweight, but the nitro covers that up. Head is a beautiful creamy beige crest that leaves fine, sheeting lace. Pour came with some good reverse cascade. Bubbling is powdery but very light. Looks good.

Nose is a bit light: faint, mild toastyness a slim roasted character with some clean malt at its base. Some slight coppery tones come through as well. It's not bad.

Taste is much better. Thin roasty entry that blossoms into a full chocolate basis. Sweet body, roasty but without any harshness: it works really well with the feel from the nitro. Smooth, brown maltiness towards the back and a little lingering cherry on the finish, which blends nicely.

Feel is quite light and a little thin, but very, very smooth.

Overall, this is a very drinkable English stout. Tasty, and easy and easily taken in pints. Nice stuff, and the best beer I had the the Frog.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of dry hop, sweet malt, and slight roasted malt. Fits the style of an American Stout. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong dry hop, roasted malt, sweet malt, and slight caramel malt. Overall, good appearance and blend, but aroma and body are muted.

Draught beer (33cl.), tasted in 2004.

Appearance : black color, with tan foamy head. Like a stout : first served only as a foam, she hurried to leave a crown of dense cream.
Smell : roasted malt aromas.
Taste and mouthfeel : malted, roasted and bitter, soft consistency. It leaves an aftertaste of burned bitter taste.
Drinkability : a good beer in the style English stout.

Serving type: on-tap

From a sampler at the St. Denis location. Pours almost black with a medium thin and foamy beige head. Next to no lacing. The aroma is both roasty and metallic. Kind of thin for a Stout, with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate and foam rubber. The finish falls a little short too. Disappointing considering this was the only French Stout I got to try on my trip.

I've learned to love stouts and, Dark the triomphe- with a stylish name in itself- is quite a stout.

Pours a dark and totally opaque black tone with a draught medium creamy tan head (see: guinness) that remains for most of the time and leaves lacing that descends anyways.

The smell, strong chocolaty and with some hops to it was discrete and at the smoke-stinking bar it was rather hard to perceive. The taste, even more bitter than a regular guinness is very strong with different perceivable flavours ranging through some coffee, hops, and wheat, making it a strong but flavour full stout.
