I had to fight ot get head, but it proved to be dense and creamy, in spite of being thin. The body is of a nice amber color. The smell shows very nice notes of red fruits with a wooden character. Sweet, yeasry, and slightly citric. The taste is overpoweringly of yeast, raisins and wood, with some subtle notes of chocolate and deep, thick and almost chewy notes of hops. You feel the 8% abv, quite warming. Quite winy, almost mouth puckering. The mouthfeel is quite round, but not overly smooth, just ok. Interesting, but you can’t have too many of these, the Beast of the Vosges will kill you. This cheesy comment was written to try to equal the cheesiness of this beer’s name. Sorry. (688 characters)

Very hazy pale brown, kind of dull color. Head is medium-bubbled and light in color. Necklace-like lacing on the glass. Aroma is all malt, caramel with some maple syrup sense. Carbonation is on the lower side, hops are minimal, malts are showcased by the set-up. Honeyish, some sense of cashew nuttiness, slight yeast vibrancy. Bitter comes on slighlty near the end, a trace of an alcoholic sense catches up on further sips. Decent brew, a little thick for quaffability, but no real flavor problems to my tongue...

The Beast of Vosges is a French amber that has a wonderful aroma and flavor. It pours a light amber / brown. The big aroma is of dark cherries and malt. The flavor is malty smooth with just a hint of flowery hop at the end. Although when you think of France you think of wine, they do make some mighty fine beer. For example check Yeti and belzibuth. (350 characters)
