Smuggled into the country by a friend of a friend, thanks for sharing Rob!
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a thick off white head that quickly dissipates to stray bubbles on the top. The aroma is very malty with lots of dark sugars and caramel. Sweet candy hints of light sweet fruit and some earthy and herbal hops round out the nose nicely. The flavor is malty up front with a lot of the sweetness from the aroma. The sweet is cut with a spicy earthy hop bite as well as a bit of a mineral type flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly sharp mineral mouthfeel. This smells great! The flavor is a bit harsher with a mineral water thing going on that is slightly unpleasant.

Amber brown colour, mild white head with some lace left behind. Smell is malty with notes of caramel, sweet notes, lightly nutty and slight bitterness as well. Taste is all malt, caramel, sweet in the finish, lots of malt in finish and aftertaste as well. Mouthfeel is syrupy, big feel to this brew, nice medium carbonation. Pretty good, not fantastic for the style but still quite good.

Pours dark red with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows sweet caramel, toasty and nutty malt, soft earth and resinous hops and some golden syrup.
Flavours are also mainly malty, lots of toasty and nutty malt transfers through as well as some subtle caramel. Finishes with a bold bitterness, much drier than the aroma suggests.
Carbonation is a bit full-on.

The beer color is brown with some reddish note. One could say it is acajou in color. Nice head on top of it. Sticky too. Dieu du Ciel amaze me in their head quality... Love that sticky stuff.

Aroma shows note of malt with some nuts. The aroma has a light intensity.

Taste wise I get some hazelnut with malts... Light bitterness at the end. Resinous.

Medium body. So easy to drink. A session beer. A good one too. Very accessible.

A decent beer, but not so alty. Pours a bit dark looking with three-quarters of an inch foamy head. Malty aromas which is the taste, it is a smooth drinker. A tad thin mouthfeel. On the sweet side, some bitterness and black pepper in the finish.
Thanks Fred.
