2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, bb 25.09.2014
Dark brown color, with fizzy pour, and small frothy head. Mild aroma of roasted malts, dry chocolate and light chemicals. The mouthfeel is very dry for this gravity, there is some roasted malt flavor, light chemicals, some yeast presence, and mild but annoying liquorice in the end; also, there is a light alcohol warmth and metallic feeling.
It doesn’t seem right.

I’d been eyeing this one for awhile at Cave à Bulles, and now it was time to give it a go as they say across the channel. Pours with a dark black-ruby clear body and a big antique white head. The aroma is your typical spicy barley, coriander and roasted barley I’d reckon, not that there’s anything wrong with that. The taste is a watery barley with a sharp hoppy finish. Watery mouthfeel, again, a common problem in French brews. Kind of in the middle somewhere.
