Beer: Trèfle Noir

Brewer: Le Trèfle Noir

Stout, 5.8%

Bought it because I`m currently having a torrid love affair with this brewery, and as always, I love stouts.

 

 

This is the colour of like, you know when you make a pot of coffee, have a cup, and then leave the pot on the burner for like half a day and it gets super dark? It`s like that. So opaque. Much dark. It has a fine layer of cream coloured foam once poured, which lingers.

It smells like all the good comforting things I love. Sweet yet bitter coffee aroma, something toasted, just yum. Very fragrant.

Ooooh first sip is fairly hoppy, but balanced off nicely by the other flavours. I like the bitterness as it`s not overpowering. The coffee is very evident in every sip, as well as a slightly burnt toast in the background. A brief flash of dark chocolate shows up in the aftertaste.

Very little carbonation, as a good stout should have, I`d definitely call this a success. I am definitely putting this in my “comfort food & drinks” list. So nice. Much good.

Very affordable, as most this brewery`s beers are.

A bit light as far as stouts go, at 5.8%. Hey, that only means you get to have more!
