4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml . corked ; Drank from a La Chouffe tulip. a strange and captivating fucken beer , i bought it for the strange! .. Bready, floral , funky nose , with just a whisper of chillies and chocolate accents ; Bright amber - I would intuitively assume a Belgian beer called Chocolat would be darker than this shit .. it could be a fucken APA . But lets get real , this is unorthodox ...the first few chugs are rich ,bready, citrusy ,textbook saison , right ?. the finish explodes like i had hoped, with legit chilli pepper heat -it waxes the palate and beats it up . a coco powder chocolate texture dances with the chilli . A pretty damn ingenious beer .
