3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 33cL. @La Rochelle, Académie de la Bière. Poured cold... A sparkling clear brown beer with mahogany hues ; small beige head ; poor retention ; no bubbly. Roasty aroma, light caramel, chocolate at the end of the tasting. Light body, light dry warming, bitter note. Light to medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, medium roasty lasting finish. Overall, pleasant dark ale ; this beer clearly comes to live when T°C gets higher.
