COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Torpille, bière brune 7.5% vol. est une bière au bouquet subtil partagé entre des notes épicées, caramel et fruitées rappelant les arômes de vieux vins des Côtes-Rôties. En bouche, l’impression est partagée entre la douceur de l’alcool , la finale est moyennement amère et la rétronasale épicée

tom10101 (3407) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
On tap @ Le Saint-Bock.

Appearance: Slightly hazy bright dark amber/golden-ish with a medium fully lasting tan head and good lacing.

Aroma: Christmas spices, caramel, alcohol and red fruits.

Taste: Moderate to medium sweetness. Christmas spices are dominants along with a strong caramel/malt presence, toasted notes, red fruits and very mild acidity.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. Moderate spicy finish with a bit of alcohol warmth.

Overall: A bit unbalanced and too spicy for my liking, but it’s an interesting spiced Belgian Ale. Tasty.

rodenbach99 (3397) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Bue en fût au Saint-Bock. Une bière brune avec des notes de chocolat et d’épice. Il y a aussi du café. La bouche est mince, piquante avec des notes épicées à la manière d’une dubbe. Correct 6+

Aromas of nuts raisins and alcohol some malt. Pours a deep opaque brown with a thin off-white head. Fizzy palate with a lingering tart finish. Really well-made with balance and not a ton of alcohol flavors but still real heft.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelbraune Farbe mit einem kupfernen Einstich, ist trüb mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist säuerlich, holzig, sehr nussig, mit etwas Hagebutte in der Nase. Der Geschmack ist anfangs vollmundig, samtig, hefig, mit einer rindigen Note, etwas überreife Feige und einem minimalen alkoholischen Einstich. Der Abgang ist fast erdig aber spritzig.

SinH4 (564) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Brown color, small white head. Bready, malty, spicy yeasts, tart. Very typical BFM I?d say. Birnbrot, yes. Malty, spicy taste, mild bitterness, the tartness is always present, but not overpowering. Lots of bready malts, nice fruity tartness. Nice carbonation, refreshing for its darkness. Good, I like it!

mario_giri (122) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Trübes braunrot, beig-fester Schaum. Würziger Geruch, Birnbrot oder Zwetschgen. Malzig, frisch und leicht säuerlich zu Beginn mit leichter Bittere, hält sich alles bis zum Schluss, birne/zwetsche bleibt auch. Wenig Co2, genau gut. Alk kaum fühlbar, guttrinkig. Vollmundig, malzigsüss/fruchtigsauer bleibt bis zum Abgang. Sehr feines Bier. BFM!
