3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The flavor is toasted malt, with some nuttiness and dark fruit. There are also some underlying bitter grassy hop notes. The finish is slightly sweet and dry. There’s a lingering finish that’s not quite clean and a bit slick. The 7.4% ABV gives a bit of a warmth and is readily apparent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I bought this beer at the grain d’orges in Crissier. I drank it relax at home. It is an interesting beer, the body is brown and black, thin foam. Like almost all the flying dog, you have this touch of American hop, decent bitterness with a nice touch of caramel, it is closer to a strong ale than a winter ale.The taste is powerful.
