Nydelig søtlig lukt. Tykk gyllen farge uten å kunne kalles grumset. Preget eikesmak. Noe tørr på smak.

from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier - hazy reddish-brown beer with a poor foam left; woody aroma with notes of cognac and apples; full-bodied, tasty and with a solid yet subtle carbonation; some sweetness, low bitterness; long woody aftertaste of old apples, caramel and cognac - pretty dry

500 mL at the Ship in Wokingham into a pint glass. Radiant orange-brown, fizzy, very short-lived head. Fruity, rich, smooth and boozy. Lovely fruity, light cognac aroma. Warming mouthfeel, almost sherry beer. Tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pale reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity nose with distinct cognac aromas, ripe pears, oak wood, apricots, orange, treacle and herbs. Fruity taste with notes of oak wood, brown sugar, dried apricots, orange peel, cognac, chestnut honey, a touch of chocolate and a bitter-sweet finish with a slight alcohol glow. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Lots of wood character, quite tasty. Nice one.

Very nice special ale. Color deep orange-dark red but not too much on the black side. Aroma of cognac and a hint of orange and alcohol. The foam lasts only a bit. Taste of cognac with a sweet caramel finish and a bit of alcohol too. Full body that fills the mouth and just enough CO2 to be there but not sting. Very nice beer.

Gravity Dispense at Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival 2012.
Slightly obscured dark brown with a thin off white head that soon clears to the edges.
Nose comprises caramel, dark fruits, toffee, cognac, a little wood.
Taste follows nose, the alcohol is well disguised, cognac a little more prominent in the taste.
Fuller end of medium body with very fine carbonation and a great smooth feel.
Excellent beer !
