Bottle from Embrouille - thank you so much! Opens with a deafening plop and pours hazy very dark amber with stable beige head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, cinnamon and fruit. Sweet, malty and fruity flavour, with notes of cloves and cinnamon. Discernible but unobtrusive alcohol presence. Sweetish, fruity finish, with bitter notes of alcohol. Well-balanced and agreeable. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. The beer is clear with a deep reddish brown color and is topped with a light beige, medium head. The beer has an aroma of dried fruit, Belgian yeast, oak, leather, licorice and a little alcohol, woods and spices reminiscent of nutmeg. A highly interesting aroma. The taste is different, but with more sweet and compact. In addition, the taste of chocolate and roasted malt. Mouth feel is smooth and has a light to medium bitterness. A really complex and tasty beer.
