Bouteille 341 ml. Mousse abondante au début qui diminue mais qui reste jusqu’à la fin. La bière est de couleur rubis profond, semblable à une scotch ale. Au nez des effluves de toffee, caramel brulé, beurre, fruit confis, canne à sucre et raisin sont présents.En bouche la bière est ronde et moelleuse. Elle possède un goût de beurre caramélisée et de fruits rouges confits. On découvre aussi des notes boisés. J’ai bu cette bière après la date de péremption et elle est vraiment meilleur que lorsqu’elle était plus jeune. cette bière me fait pensée un peu à une scotch ale. Bravo Boréale

Amber color with a medium size head. Malty and sweet. Taste of caramel coffee and small fruits. Not really spicy. A little bit roasty. Nice - sort of dry- finish. That’s one of Boréale’s best ...

Bouteille. Couleur brune-ambrée, mousse très mince, pesistente. Arôme de réglisse, de malt torréfié. Goût épicé et sucré, fruits confits, bel équilibre, présence d’alcool peu perceptible, amertume en finale, Corps moyen, effervescence moyen-faible. Très bonne. Bon 20e Boréale !

Nice beige head toping a dark purple/brown liquid. Wow. Great nose full of spices, caramel, plum and licorice. The taste is a great continuity of the aromas. Toffeeness, chocolate, dry fruits with a touch of rhum and anis. Tasted it several time at the DRAGON ROUGE, ( Lajeunesse Str., Mtl ) and at home,before, after and almost a year after the peremption date and it’s better as it’s getting older.
