On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Amber color, ok foam. Medium/high aroma intensity; some immediate off flavours in this one also some eucalyptus, malt, dried fruits- strong yeast influence. Medium body & complexity. Basically a ruined beer.

Bottle. Pours a deep bronze-hued clear body with a small white head. Nose is oxidized wet paper and raisiny tones, caramel, harsh fat, molasses, vegetable broth and hints of grains and candi sugar. Taste is oxidized raisin and wet paper tones, caramel, grains and hints of brown sugar. Medium body and carbonation. Bad stuff, hopefully just one bottle and not the entire batch.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
