3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to whomever the rater that sent me this beer is! It has been so long that I have forgotten!
A redish chestnut colored body sits beneath a faint wispy tan head. The aroma is largely nutty with notes of toasted honey wheat bread. The flavor is just that… sweet with honey and maple syrup, almonds and big suggestions of cashew are prominent. The malts are powerful and fruity. There is a hint of the higher alcohol on the right
middle of each sip. A light citrus peel bitterness hits in the finish. Another beer that is leaving my lips sticky and my belly warm.

A sublte bock with a very malty taste. Alcohol is hidden but the beer brings forth a smooth warm feeling. Copper color with an excellent aroma. Creamy and frothy poor with a smooth finish. Great with voodoo shrimp!

My favorite new beer (for me at least). Strong and hoppy, with a manly 8.2% alcohol, it has a happy flavor, though it may be better in the fall and spring than the heat of summer.

pours a dark copper brown color w/ a small off white head. Smells of a light carmel malt some yeast and a light figs. Palate is well carbonated decent mouth feel good creaminess. Tastes of carmel brown sugar some light roastiness in it and some dark fruits plums and figs I think. Overall some pretty good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at le Mondial de la bière 2005. Reddish amber pour with a thin offwhite head. Mild aroma of malt and dark fruits. Fortunately the flavor is more powerfull and assertive, there’s rich malt with dark fruit, the finish is bitter and roasty. The body is medium with a creamy texture and the carbonation is moderate.

Not much in the aroma dept. had a woody smell to it. Nice rich head that faded decently and laced well. A clear dark amber had a full mouth to it. It was good but thought it needed a little more to it. A good drinker I liked it just thought it was missing something.
