erickok (3161) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 10, 2012
Very dark brown body and big espresso coloured head. Whole fat milk, chocolate, figs, walnut. Delicate rather than expressive or challenging. Sharp alcohol burst, fermented fruit. Don’t really get the barrel ageing in terms of wood bit I don’t mind that at all. It is full bodied en well developed instead. Low carbonation. Very flavourful, powerful even. Well worth the ABV. Sticky body, which fits the beer well. Quality brew for sure. (33cl bottle, bought at the brewer)
