3.03/5 rDev -14.6%
Opaque, barely lighter than cola but more reddish brown. rising carbonation is only visible right at the top but there's a huge soda 3 finger head.
Plasticy yeast, chocolate soda (when i used to put quik powder into sprite as a kid), nostril dilating yeast. Artificial strawberry. An odd smell.
A lot like my childhood recipe of chocolate soda, perhaps with a bit of coffee candy. Only a moderate sweetness. Certainly odd flavor for beer.
A hair astringent, otherwise like a mild soda.
An odd one, but certainly drinkable.

3.9/5 rDev +9.9%
Pours cloudy chestnut brown, foamy tan head which settles to a nice covering.
Smells boozy, fruity, toasted.
On the palate, sweet malt dominates, rounded out by subtle hop bitterness. It tastes mildly nutty, with a slight tang that provokes the mouth to water. Carbonation is low, but lends a nice mouthfeel with the otherwise heavy flavor profile.
This is fine example of the French ambrée style, full of flavor, but nice and cloudy and a little rough around the edges. One of several fine offerings from this brewer. Definitely grab one if you can.
