Route Des Épices (Ale Rousse Au Poivre)

A dark brown, reddish hue to the brew in the Brasserie de l’Abbaye des Rocs Chalice. Small head that fades to give a spotty film. A small amount of lace.
It’s difficult for me to remember a beer where the tastes match the ingredients so well. Rye upfront very obviously AND the finish, well it’s 100% peppercorns – dramatic!! The pepper is STRONG too – really strong! Look out if this is not your thing.
That sums it up – there’s LITERALLY nothing else required to describe the beer! Perhaps some caramel malt in the finish. This is going to be best paired with food and there are LOTS of options.
