look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Definitely one of my all time favorite beers and I had plenty of it while I was in France.
Deep brown in color with amber, orange, and caramel hues with a thick creamy head in both texture and color.
Smell; caramel, wheat, brown sugar, slight hints of pepper.
Taste; quite sweet overall with the apparent and forefront flavors of caramel, brown sugar, wheat, rye grains, and black pepper accompanied by plum and prune flavors, slight hits of cinnamon and cloves, with orange and whiskey hints on occasional sips making the level of alcohol present as a reminder, very complex all in all.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy with the same density as water but with medium carbonation giving it a slightly prickly sensation on the tongue.
Drinkability: The flavor of this bier allows it to easily slip over the drinker's taste buds and down the throat I could easily drain several of these, but the level of alcohol in this brew deters that idea quite a bit.
All in all truly an excellently brewed BIER!
