from Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - pours a cloudy brown beer under a modest beige foam left; aroma of wood, licorice, malt and brown sugars; full-bodied and very sweet; a light corny tartness; short and quite dry malty finish with notes of licorice and a lingering bitterness - a bit werid but not without interest

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Cheers Scopey for sharing this rarity. Clear dark amber beer. Good pale tan - cream head. Palate is smooth, semi dry and has fine carbonation. Good caramel - toffee malt with some lacto. Sweet! Finishes dry with mildly bitter dried fruits. Hides the alcohol well.

Bottle (purchased at Delirium Rio), consumed at Chriso’s Easter tasting 2012. It pours deep amber, with a decent beige head. The nose is toffee, hot cross bun, caramel, Horlicks and beef jerky. The taste is cola, toffee, plum, prune, grape, chocolate, spice, sugar and caramel, with a dry, fruity finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad, but perhaps a bit too sweet.
