3.73/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Beer bottle (33 cl.) purchased from Clem (Nantes), and tasted in 2011.

Appearance : amber color, with white foam head (not persistent).
Smell : malty aroma.
Taste and mouthfeel : malty and hoppy flavours with spicy notes, and huge alcohol presence.
Drinkability : a good beer in the style Barley Wine, but too expensive.

A- typical deep orange/amber brown slickness. has thick consistency, very oily

S- lovely currant, grapey, caramel, a bit woody

T- a little overly phenolic for my taste but still a lovely example of the style. nice roasty caramel sweetness and hop bitterness

M- slick, oily, thick, resiny, liquid caramel

O- an excellent example of the style. Brews like this get me really psyched on what lies ahead in the French beer future.
