Rated 1 hour after drinking it, doesn’t remember the aroma. Similar as the brewery’s blond version. Doesn’t taste as real bear.

Spiced? Would have said brown ale...a very good one. As a spiced beer not so much. Nuttiness is dominant. No finish.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma - nice aroma is caramel, nutty, and some vanilla
Appearance - body is amber; the beer really wants to shoot out the bottle, the head sets up fast at about 3/4" off-white head, but quickly ends up at nothing; there is a very small bit of nucleation
Taste - the beer is sweet; there is a caramel malt quality; a very subtle nuttiness; and some suggestion of vanilla -> but that comes off more as caramel
Palate - body is slightly above light; the texture somewhat of a slick syrupy quality; the carbonation is between average and flat; the finish is somewhat sweet and last for a short period
I really enjoyed Bourganel’s Nougat, I was hoping this would blow me away as well. It was ok, but very forgettable. If it tasted as good as it smelled it would have been a great beer.
