3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I wasn’t sure what to expect here, and like those who loved it, it’s pretty good. It can’t be compared to others and needs to eb addressed on it’s own qualities. Nice rich golden color with creamy head, aroma of wood and toffee, taste of caramel, peat, butterand wood. Smooth and oily texture, this is really different French beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light amber color. Small head with good carbonation. Copper aroma. Taste is pretty mild. Scotchy finish from the peat-smoked malt. Finish is great, but the sweet caramel is too overpowering.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Clear deep golden. Aroma has some whiskey, a bit smoked, a bit of honey and some graininess. Sickly sweet flavor with lots of honey, some graininess and a hint of whiskey in the finish. Light to medium-bodied.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle sampled at clockwork’s December 8th, 2012 tasting. Pours a golden hazy body with no head. Aroma is shit-disgusting booze. Pretty horrendous. Mouthfeel is barely drinkable with notes of horrific alcohol, artificial sweetener, stale gum and malts. Stay away from this brutally horrific malt liquor.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Fra flaske på Les Destillieries Idéales, Nice 14 Okt 12. Gyldenbrun. OK luftig skum som varer en stund. Bra, litt søtlig whiskyaroma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er papp med en kvalmende søt ettersmak. Like dårlig som forventet.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can at home. Clear dark golden body, low creamy head. Smells of sugar, hay and metal. Sweet taste, honey, with a sharp corn taste. Feels powdery in the mouth like mashed (no pun intened) beans. Some hop bitterness notable here, but it’s completely overshadowed by the sweet sugary taste. I’d rather not have another.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled. Amber colored beer with minimal white head. Aroma of old malt, some wood, earthy notes. Sweet lemonade taste with sugar, caramel malt, hints of lemon. Sweetness overlapped all other aspects of this drink. Blah.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin head. Weird peat smoked malts, toffee, and sweet fruity notes. Odd, but not really in a good way.

Bottle shared by Paul at tasting at my house. Pours gold with off white head - very small. Nose/taste of smoked apple juice, smoked apple candy and light peat. Taste is watery with smoked apple. Lighter bodied.
