Vapeur Cochonne — Brasserie à Vapeur

A huge complicated beer.  Both the nose and taste display big juicy fruits, sugary sweet rum like qualities, and some spiciness.  Quite a mouthful, and as interesting warmer at the end of the glass, as cooler at the start. Style: Strong Dark Ale ABV: 9% Price: $8.41
