This, my predigree chum, is La Rulles Brune by Brasserie Artisanale de Rulles standing at only 6.5%, feels like it’s been awhile since I’ve had anything less than 8%.
And it’s okay.
Fine. This seems to be the last stout I have for this advent calendar, but unfortunately it is very mellow, in all senses. Which surprised me reguarding the colour being quite dark, thought it would have more going on. The smell first reminded me of a lot of average stouts I have had at several ale festivals. Strange thing to say but it is like the drink glides over the first half of your tongue and only then the taste appears, followed by a very simular, if not forgotful aftertaste. I guess an upside is that it is very very easy to drink. It is very light and smooth. Ever slightly more malty than what you would expect from a stout, otherwise not a lot else for me.
