COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

I don’t really sense any of the following bitterness described in the Brewer’s Blurb™, but it’s a solid BSA although I could perhaps do with a smidgen less diluted flavor

Belle tête crémeuse, forte mais agréable et onctueuse au palet ! Un régal qui porte bien son nom

3.5
exeter (531) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
Poured out a dark brown with a tan head.The taste was caramel lightly spiced and overly sweet with a moderate bitterness. You wouldn’t know it was high alc. Worth trying once but probably wouldn’t buy again.

carlom (48) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
colore ambrato scuro, schiuma compatta e persistente, aroma poco presente con sentori di lievito, pera, coriandolo e pepe. Al palato malto tostato, iniziale leggero sapore ferroso lascia il campo alle spezie e al luppolo, birra equilibrata secca con finale amaro.
