2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Old BA rate - tap)
Pours a tawny brown color with little to no head; what is left is a thin lightly tan film across the top.
Light malty sweetness in the nose; dark grains and some yeastiness in the aroma; touch of grape as well. The dark grapes show up in the taste as well. Hints of light spices in the flavor as well, is that nutmeg? Pretty weak in the flavor, but lots of yeastiness sneaks in in an unpleasant way. MF is a bit thin and very faint carbonation. Not an awful brew, and one of the better ones from Les Brasseurs. Still nothing too interesting.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at the brewpub
Muddy brown color. Light roasted malt aroma. Medium body structure, caramel and dusty chocolate flavor; very yeasty. Either the bottom of the tank, or a very unprofessional brew.
