2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
The color is dark brown and the head is nice, but quickly disappearing, leaving a nice lace. The aroma is hoppy, malty and the mouthfeel is rather smooth and dry. the flavour is sweet and malty, with roasted malt. It has notes of candy sugar, coffee, port wine, dark, ripe fruits and the sweetness is sticky and cloying - far too much. The finish has light citrus, that helps a bit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille(Merci, Monsieur professeur!):Copper coloured, very clear, big rocky off-white head, mild bisquity-fruity nose that is accompanied by a citric touch; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and pretty soft; sweetish citrussy-bisquity finish. Nothing wrong with - or very good by french standards…

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. L4317. BB 22/3/08. Thanks to Semi!
This is a quite daring experiment as the BB date was 5 years ago. The colour is dark reddish brown almost black with small tan head. Looks pretty good. The aroma is very malty and rather sweet. It’s actually quite close to a Doppelbock or a Barley Wine. The flavour is quite the same. Sweet sugary flavour with lots of malt. Also some Coke notes there. As Pinball pointed out this one doesn’t age very well.
