Gayroche Fermentation Haute - France 19-3-11

The Low Down:
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.

Packaging: 4/10
Deceptive. That paperboy doesn't not look like he could drink this beer.
Refreshment: 3/10
Doesn't really refresh, but at the same time doesn't provide comfort factor. It's somewhere in the middle.
Flavour 3/10:
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.
Price: 3/10
$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.
Total: 22/50

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.
