Gayroche Fermentation Haute - France 19-3-11
Oh God it tastes so strong. The bottle claims 8.5% but I'm certain It is much more than this. due to the outrageous head that escaped the bottle when I opened it, I'd even hazard a guess that it further ferments in the bottle.
It has a remarkable flavour, somewhere between ethanol and mowed grass, with malty overtones, and a slightly burning chestnut finish.
The label claims this is french strong beer, and I didn't believe it given the labels stamp with a paperboy on it. Now I know what Strong beer - Fermentation Haute means, (It means top fermented) and this beer is strong in every aspect.
Gayroche means Gay Rock, and that's quite interesting.
Deceptive. That paperboy doesn't not look like he could drink this beer.
Doesn't really refresh, but at the same time doesn't provide comfort factor. It's somewhere in the middle.
It really tastes of alcohol and a few other things too, some of them nice.
Alcohol Content: 9/10
8.5% claimed. 35% perceived. This could kill a small mammal.
$6.95. Considering you can use it to sterilise a hospital. It's not terrible, but you probably shouldn't pay someone to give you this.
The paint stripper of the beer world. This beast lulls you into a false sense of security. Drink it when you have to get drunk so fast that your memories are erased, like at a Justin Bieber concert.
