3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice head on a dark mahogany/maroon beer. Crisp alcohol smell with some malty scents. The beer is a little out of balance. Heavy on the alcohol but not a ton of flavor. Decent amount of malt but theres just not enough there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the February 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy orange-tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish and tart Pez and mixed fruits. The flavor was sweet cherry, berry and lemon with a light malty presence and touches of tart Pez and chalk. Medium length chalk, lemon, berry and Pez finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper colored pour with an off-white head. Strange tartness on the nose. A bit of toffee and cardboard, some toasted bread, and very mild dark fruit notes. Flavor is sweet and malty with toffee, bread, and toast notes. Some fruit, a light floral hop quality, and a bit of cardboard. Mildly boozy, too. Not much of a fan of this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On m’avait vanté cette petite brasserie, spécialement cette bouteille. Sucre à la crème, caramel, chocolat blanc, abricots séchés dans un corps assez svelte pour une si grosse bière. Vraiment robuste en saveurs mais délicat en bouche.
