COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark and heavy ale - the strongest that the brewery has ever produced - in which three varieties of malt and two spices are utilised. It is brewed "in honour of" the Burgundian Babble Belt, a well known web-site on the Internet, where beer lovers can exchange all sorts of information.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2003 Dark orange. Slight white head. Vinegary nose, spicey, malts & honey-like (strange, no honey added on this). Sweet taste. With a punch - a good one. The aftertaste is peppery-spicey - but whether this IS valerian and lemon balm, I don't drink enough pharmaceutical concoctions to decide that. This is nice, anyway. Very rich mouthfeel. Spicyness keeps going on. Amazing, interesting, but the bed has to be near.

I very much enjoyed this beer. It has a sweet, caramel aroma with a hint of smokiness and malt. The appearance is quite nice with a hazy, amber color. There are small particles evident and virtually no lacing. The beer is quite flavorful. While it finishes with a smokey aftertaste, the beer itself is a bit acidic with a sweetness that masks the alcohol content very well. Highly recommended - a great surprise at the tasting.

cloudy dirty brown colour, absolutely no foam, chaotic aroma of malt, potatoes and perfume, sweet, oily and medium-bodied, bitter plumy finish - urgh ?
