COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong & dark beer, inspired by the Alfred bog, is our very first seasonal offering. Featuring bog myrtle, or sweet gale, harvested from the wilds of northern Quebec. This ancient herb was used in brewing hundreds of years ago and offers bitterness, a sweet aroma and herbal spicy notes.

Ambrée, presque orange avec un petit col beige qui reste longtemps. L’arôme du malt, du myrte, et un peu du caramel. Le goût est d’abord du malt légèrement sucré puis un goût terreux. Du myrte, j’imagine. Le goût terreux est pas mal fort. Très unique.

bottle. Poured hazy brown with a beige diminishing head. Aroma of sweet fruity malt with an herbal note. Medium body, prickly carbonation with a tart finish. Flavour of caramel malts with a vegetal hoppiness, notes of yeast and peppery spice. Alcohol well hidden.

cargo150 (948) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Couleur brune ambrée completement opaque avec un mince col qui se dissipe rapidement. Aromes de fruits acre, de caramel, d’herbe, très terreux. Mal balancé... Désagréable a boire...

Johnsense (944) - - AUG 25, 2014
Brownish pour, decent sized head. Muted aroma, carael, herbs, (myrtle?). Roasted malt, caramel, herbs and spice, lemon, actually quite different, if not complex. Medium body. Definitely unique.

Tessic (919) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
This one poured a cloudy amber colour with a nice creamy head. Some lacing. Scents include salon perm solution, very ripe fruit and apricot. First swig was creamy with light carbonation. Flavours of ripe fruit and a little caramel. Finish was a little bitter with that ripe fruit flavour lingering.

Growler from the brewery. Pours dark brown, slightly red. Very little head, a little flat. Big smoky aroma, taste is sweet, hints of raisin, prunes, and roasted malt finish. Good stuff!

Clear mid-brown with just a little head. The main reaction we had was "weird". The beer backbone is solid - a funky/caramelly/raisiny thing - but nothing particularly intense, to give room for the bog myrtle to come through. And come through it does! It sneaks in subtly with its vegetal/seaweed character, but by the finish it’s the headliner. So whether or not you like bog myrtle is going to go a long way in determining whether or not you like this. And I found it a little too vegetal, too mouth-puckering. And really odd.

SuperTiti33 (744) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Ambrée. Sucré. Florale/herbacé. Très Fruité. Baie, probablement la myrte. Épicé. Fine amertume végétale. Légère trame de caramel de l'entré à la finale. Très intéressante.

You’re not gonna win a lot of friends brewing beer with bog weed. And that’s what I like about this brew. Pours busted nose brown with a luscious one finger cap. Flavour is unlike anything I’ve had before. Down side is a coppery, pennies in water aftertaste. A true herbal offering, almost jarring in the way it presents itself. Clearly not a session beer, this is one to sip on & shake your head about. Like hearing a Grateful Dead song at a hip hop show. Recommended.

600ml bottle not bad for a spiced beer it would do in a pinch Beaus is really hit and miss I am afraid sort of like nickelbrook
