4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
very dark, deep black color, shades of red and brown shine slightly through when held up to the light. smells faintly of cloves, plums; that character of the yeast i smelled in the trois pistoles. tastes the same, clove, plum, raisin, with a sour note that comes in later. I taste a little coriander, but much more in balance than the coriander bomb that was la fin du monde (for me). hidden alcohol that warms the throat slightly. overall a very good beer, something i wouldn’t mind buying again.
