Pours a dark ashy russet color with a middling cocoa head. Aromas of copper and molasses, maple syrup, bread crusts, and cheap chocolate. Sort of schwartzbier-ish in a way. This beer is kinda bizarre; not bizarre like Dogfish Head’s upcoming insect cocoon-aged series, but just rather unexpected. Despite hailing from France, this beer is clearly trying to emulate a Belgian style. The label features a monastic title and imagery, there’s a swath of yeast at the bottom of the bottle, and the commercial description mentions "triple fermentation." But the beer tastes like wort, a grain soup bathed in maple syrup and cola, betraying the basic Belgian principle of attenuation. As if they forgot to do any of the three fermentations boasted. The finish is short, but the body is so sweet, reminding me of certain Sam Adams styles. Pour this beer over pancakes or grapefruit. The empty bottle smells like cheap wafer chocolate. I’m THIS CLOSE to believing that they dumped candi sugar into the bottle instead of fresh yeast.
