Bottle 750ml. Pours burgundy with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of wine, dark fruits, red fruits, some bread, malt. Taste is of fruits, acidity, some malts, sugar. Palate: Medium body. Light-medium carbonation. Overall: Not lots of cognac features detected. Fairly good. Not intimidating.

bottle shared by mathieuc, many thanks bro! pours unclear dark brown with a small light beige cap, minimal retention and lacing. raspberries, cherries - citric fruits with an acetic touch, never overwhelming - balsamic figs; very spicy, chocolate powder, loads of tannins. light carbonation, light-medium acidity; light body; tingling, very tannic and grassy-spicy finish. nice but CS and anchorage alone do better..

mathieuc (3777) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
Thanks to nate321 for this bottle! Pours a dark red with a small beige rim on top that leaves somewhat good lacing. Nose is of light acetone, oak, wine, moderate vinegar and light cheese. Taste is of balsamic vinegar like it should but also incredibly oaky. Grapes, cherries and light spirits (must be the cognac) make up the rest of the flavors. Both body and carbonation were medium and acidity level is moderate and refreshing. Easy drinking enough. Overall a good but not great Flanders-style ale.
