PapaVillum (511) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2014
75 cl, flaske, 11,0 % ABV, serveret ved 15-16 grader, gave fra Handschuh hjembragt fra Normandiet - stor tak! 25. oktober 2014. Kastanjefarvet fransk ufiltreret "Traditionel Ale" med stor moccafarvet og rå skumtop på 5 cm. Store bobler, men brygget er roligt i glasset. Skummet svinder ind til et "groft" klippelandskab. God og spændende aroma af ukendt antal krydderurter, men salvie og timian fornemmes. Derudover noget lakrids/fennikel. Smagen er let til middel bitter, let sød og middel krydret med en ekstra bitter og krydret eftersmag. Fin balance, men ikke alle vil finde den krydrede bitterhed lige charmerende, tænker jeg. Ingen fornemmelse for den kraftige alkohol i smagen. Kroppen er mellem fyldig, og konsistensen er overraskende tynd grænsende til glat/slick. Øllet er karboneret på et medium niveau. Uden at være erfaren øldrikker i fransk ølkunst fristes jeg alligevel til postulatet: typisk fransk "strong" ale med den lidt anderledes krydring. En øl, der kræver lidt tilvænning smagsmæssigt, men med god kant. Noget befriende let drikkeligt over denne stærke Ale. En extra stjerne for etiket-designet, som er sjovt, humoristisk og historie relateret.

Beertobealive (302) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2014
Short beigish white head with citrus and spices aromas. Clear copper body. Light Fennel taste but alcohol is well hidden. Best before 2035!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

manuelMTL (164) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2014
33 cl bottle in tulip glass. Pours a hazy amber with a frothy white head. Nose is fruity with citrus, orange, and floral notes. A light Cinzano aroma. A bit soapy. Taste is dry with orange and grapefruit flavors. Light sweetness. Medium bitterness lingering for a while. 11 ABV is barely recognizable. Interesting beer but lacks a bit of complexity!

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2014
Appearance: Hazy dark amber with 2 finger thick beige head. Aroma: Muskiness, earthy, mineral, candied orange peel, bready, spice, hint of spiritous alcohol and light dried fruit. Taste: Low sweetness, medium bitter and sourness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, abrupt bready, fruity finish. Comments: Good, but fairly ordinary. Glass lace. No hint that this is 11%.

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bouteille 33 cl de La Cave à Bulles - Paris (F). Rousse à mousse crème. Nez herbacé, malt rôti, réglisse, fruité. La bouche est ronde, puissante, maltée herbacée avec du fruit confituré, abricot-datte. Pétille sur la langue ce qui semble alléger l’alcool. Fruits secs, caramel, cuir, réglisse-mélasse.

JK (4615) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle, purchased at La Cave a Bulles, and carried home for a tasting. Great complex aroma. Leather, cardamom, and light spice. Dry malt flavor with an herbal finish. Heavily carbonated, this was a huge gusher. Considerable amount of sediment in this beer.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle - thanks John! Slightly hazy orange pour. Huge gusher. Fruitcake, leather, and some toffee. A bit musky. Good!

BeerCast_Rich (1894) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 4, 2013
[750ml bottle] Big gusher, flumes out of the bottle even having been carefully vented. Angry and historic Norman ale. Slightly tart, nutty aroma on the opaque medium-brown beer. Touch of the old blanket. Borderline, but gets away with it. Chestnut fizz. Doesn’t taste 11% at all [21062013]

Bottle. Cloudy amber with off white head. Spiced caramel apple aroma, little funk. Taste is spicy and musty with caramel and toffee. Little sweet and a little tangy. Ok
