Well I guess I’ll be the second to rate this. Bottled. POurs a murky dark brown color with a huge tan head. Aromas of dark fruits and some yeast. Lively spice to the taste with licorice notes. Lively carbonation as well. Malty with raisins and plums. Alcohol is a little big. This is a very good beer, but I drank it side by side with Trois Pistoles (i had heard they were the same beer) and it fell short of it. (what wouldn’t?)
