Pours a rust brown red with a very voluminous, bubble pocked head. Great lacing. Smells deceptively malty in the glass. Lots of raisin and fig. Taste is a giant wave of bitter. Slight caramel/vanilla malt taste followed by a bum rush of bittering hops. You almost feel like your tounge is shrinking from fluids being extracted from it. It's that bitter. Moderately strong body. It lives up to the style but it's not my thing.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap, malty and hoppy nose, rather well blended. A good herbal bitter with cloves? and roasted bicuits. The finish is long, accompanied by a definition of english hop bitterness. Better than the bottle as usual with La Barberie, but definitely nothing to throw me off my bench. A bit too carbonated to my liking too.

A dark red colour with a lovely beige head of foam. The aromas are sweet and malty, and dry and hoppy as well. This bitter is balacned very, very well. The taste is awesomely malty up front with a distinctive hop flavor in the middle and an awesome, dry hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and the drinkability is very, very good. I wonder if this brew is as good in the bottle?
