appearance is mostly unclouded ruby, quite striking. head reduces to and remains a film quickly. aroma is lightly crunchy toffee brittle. mouthfeel is totally unexpected, very soft and pillowy. more caramel in taste along with nutty notes not unlike a dopplebock.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
For the price, I should’ve liked this beer better than I did. Started off well with a foamy off-white head and a clear dark copper colour, and nicely carbonated to boot. (Another one that looked like a Pepsi!). Aroma was almost absent but for an inkling of malt, but that’s all. Taste was pleasant but all I could detect was maybe some coffee? Odd beer, probably ideal for washing down one’s Freedom Fries.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl Bottle from a gift pack. Clear deep amber colour, creamy off white head. Aroma of a thick sweetness, light toasted malts, honey and caramel. Flavour is sweet at first, honey and caramel, very malty, followed by a dry and light spicy bitter finish. Medium bodied, syrupy mouthfeel. Although a bit on the sweet side, a nice offering. Reminded me (especially the nose) of Paulaner Salvator.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle, 8%. Weak phenolic aroma, band aid. Nice clear dark chestnut colour. Good stable light brown head. The flavour is also phenolic, and worse than the aroma. Band aid, chemical, strange liquorice. Genuine Choulette quality :/

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with emacgee. A classic BdG, here. Biscuit, earth, bread, and malt highlight the nose. The flavor is a bit more sweet and caramelly but has a nice belgian-like yeast finish that rounds it out. ALcohol hidden very well.

Tasted with turdferguson. Pours a copper orange with some haze. Head is two fingers thick creamy and offwhite. The aroma is earthy, bready, malty, mild basementy character, more of a Belgian yeast feel than I was expecting. The flavor was sweet, candyish, mildly spicy, yeasty, earthy. Palate is smooth with a nice carbonation.
