3.61/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: It has a nice deep hazy ruby red color to it. It has a nice thick creamy beige head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of toasty/biscuity malts, some caramel, a funky metallic note and earthy hops.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a biscuity malts, some nutiness, faint caramel, an earthy bitterness and a slight metallic taste.

Mouthfeel: It has a med/high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

The beer is brown in color or very dark red if you prefer. The head is thin, beige. The beer is quite dark since I can't see through it. The aroma has some hazelnut notes with vanilla and caramel. Very sweet and good on the smell. On the taste, it's surprising in a good way. Caramel, slightly roasted caramel too. Roasted nuts. Sweet. Medium body. Bitterness is shy, but present. Well balanced. A good beer overall. Would love to try this one on tap!

Easy to drink, its a well done session beer.

Chronique - Le Trèfle Noir. Got it in a bar.

So the look of it: About a finger of beige head. Médium carbonation, Red orange color to it.

The smell of it: The smell if not there for me. You have some caramel malt, some biscuit malt also but thats it.

The taste of it: Much much better than the smell, the caramel and some biscuit is there. it goes down really easily. Feels a bit watery. Some bitterness on the aftertaste. Really nice overall.

So overall would I recommend it ? Sure I mean if you can get it at a good price go for it. Me I paid 8,5 $ in a bar for a bottle so if you can get a 6 pack for a bit more go for it.
