3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark amber color with red hue; small creamy head. Some aroma of caramel and fudge. Good body structure, round mouthfeel, good flavor of dark caramel some fudge, light saltiness.
Salted butter caramel is a specialty of Brittany; indeed this beer reminds a bit of that caramel. Pleasant.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
WEIRD. Amber colored pour, light head. Ok at first the taste of caramel is interesting. But as you get into the beer further its artificial, plastic, flavors of caramel, peat, overripe fruit. ODD.

Good choice for a cask. Some sweaty salty caramel. Nothing complicated, howoever break from the hops and the like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy copper, golden highlights, lacy off-white head. Sweet butterscotch malt, fruity nuances. A little sweet and simple, but not bad. No peat or smoke at all, but thatís a non-issue for me. I had this after Eel River Porter, and maybe that was a mistake because the sweetness really seemed amped up in this brew. I donít know. it was good, but didnít blow me away.
