Beer: La Grivoise de Noël

Brewer: Le Trou du Diable

Strong Christmas Beer (brown), 7.5%

Bought it because the Season is upon us, and I love brown ales, and the label was all artsy and pretty.

 

 

This is a nice rusty brown colour, slightly cloudy. It had a creamy beige foam when I poured it, but it`s pretty much gone now.

This smells so goddamn yummy. It smells like candied oranges and I cheated ad looked at the label, because I couldn’t put my finger on the other thing I was smelling, but it’s licorice. I hate licorice, but this just smells amazing.

Oh what the hell is this. New experience! OMG. This is an explosion of so many things I can’t wrap  my head around it. Whaaaat. I can taste the licorice, but it’s not bothering me. It mostly lingers in the aftertaste. The label says it has some cardamon, smoked peppers and a touch of caramel, but seriously I cannot for the life of me tell them apart.

All I know is that this tastes awesome. And yes, definitely Christmassy. Super tasty, and not tooth-rotting sweet, but sweet enough that I wouldn`t drink this with dessert.

Not super pricey for the size and alcohol content. A good deal!
