resinous, wood, caramel and licorice; sticky, full-bodied, strong sweetness, partially balanced by a late and fair bitterness; long warming finish with more notes of caramel and pine needles - has definitely improved with age but it is not as good as a 7 years old Samichlaus from Hürlimann (4/8/7/4/16)

2003 vintage sampled in february 2004 - clear pale amber colour (each new vintage looks paler than the precedent !), almost no foam, strong aroma of plum with some alcohol notes, incredibly sweet and thick, oily, long warming alcohol finish - much better than other young vintages
(3/6/6/3/13)

2002 vintage sampled january 2004 - clear amber colour (strangely pale indeed in comparison with other vintages), no foam, strong nose of malt, alcohol and prune, the whole thing remembers me of soy sauce, very sweet and very oily, sirupy with a powerfull malt, alcohol and cognac-like finish - brutal and chaotic, not at maturation
(5/3/4/2/7)

2001 vintage sampled may 2003 - clear reddish-brown colour, almost no foam, bready, alcohol and dark fruits aroma, immensely sweet, very oily and heavy, explosive alcoholic, sugary and sirupy finish, chaotic and unbalanced - should have a "best after" instead of a "best before" date; wait at least 3 more years with this vintage
(6/3/4/2/7)

2000 vintage sampled in december 2000 - I hope Oakes will not be too much disappointed ...I tasted it blind together with a 1996 Samichlaus from Hurlimann. The difference is enormous and I understand now better why young vintages from this beer are not really loved (since 8 years, it was the first time I tried a vintage younger than 3 years).The colour of this one is much lighter and not so intense. Its aroma is the only interesting side: it has a molasses nose with a hint of strawberry (the 1996 is more complex). The flavour is quite disgusting: much too sweet, siruppy, astringent, aggressive with an acid aftertaste.So please: don’t touch this beer until it is aged minimum 3 years !

hazy red colour with an unregular pink head, strong aroma of cherry syrup, very sweet with some sourness, reasonable body, dry cherry aftertaste - basically perfect for children but somehow I find it quite drinkable courtesy of Martin Dröser - very hazy reddish-brown beer with a persistent beige foam; light yeasty, hoppy aroma of dark fruits, hints of molasses and tea; low carbonation, creamy palate and solidly bitter; some earthy notes and more dark fruits in the finish; light oily It has an horrible cloudy, dirty, brown colour with absolutely no foam. It has a strong aroma of cocoa mixed with slime, stagnant water and subtle notes of dog's shit. Ok, this was for the better part of this beer... The flavour ? the first impression is: overcarbonated, but this fact does not matter for long because what comes just after is inhuman: it has an horrible, artificial sweeties and perfume-like taste with a too long aftertaste of sewer. Awful and revolting. Defining the characteristics of this stuff is a real challenge because every sip is a torture.

The bottom of this bottle contains solid chocolate and I’m not talking about traces: it was about 1/3 of the content. Appearance? ever seen a container full of shit? then it is exactly what it looks like. So incredible that my friend Laurent Mousson catched his camera to immortalize this unique moment. This made the fact that this beer has the fastest disappearing head ever, a ridiculous anectode.

It took us about 10 minutes to stop laughing, taking pictures and then worked up the courage to sniff and take a sip of this incredible mixture. It has a terrible lactic and acidic nose which succeed to put the chocolate in the background; medium-bodied and very acidic (how the fuck can you spoil a 10% beer that bad ?!?) this stuff goes beyond any description and it’s not possible for me to taste more.

If you think you have tasted the worst beer in the world, forget about it and try this one (but check your life insurance first).

My deepest thanks go to the Brasseurs Savoyards for this unforgettable moment.
