Smells like sorghum. Looks like it too. This beer smells familiar. Familiar like malt, wheat, and an abused college bar at 10AM Sunday morning. But less familiar are the notes of caramel, burnt sorghum (which is already burnt I think) and almost tries to make me think there was a barrel nearby. And those scents and aromas follow all the way to the palate bringing with it no surprises. Bise Noire means black kiss, translated by my wife told me, she claims to speak French. She read the rest of what’s written on the bottle and said that there isn’t any smoke in this beer and told me to quit drinkin, so this will be my last beer until she goes to bed. Overall happiness metric = 3.5 smokestacks out of a total possible score of 7 smokestacks. ABV = 7.2 and I’m feeling it.
