Brune belge / Dubbel

Les moines trappistes, avec leur rigueur et leur savoir-faire, ont probablement le plus contribué au développement des traditions brassicoles. Étant prêts à tout pour offrir une boisson des plus délectables, les moines firent de multiples essais et certains allèrent même jusqu’à offrir le pardon à des fidèles en échange de leurs recettes de bière. Il ne reste aujourd’hui que sept abbayes trappistes qui produisent de la bière. C’est en leur honneur et à la mémoire des nombreux moines qui ont développé et aimé ces bières au fil des siècles que nous avons créé ce divin nectar. L’Assoiffé – 8 est une bière de type double belge aux notes maltées de fruits secs, agrémentées d’un soupçon subtil de mélasse et de noisettes grillées, le tout se terminant sur une finale douce, légèrement sucrée et peu amère.

Through their knowledge and rigor, Trappist monks made great contributions to the development of modern brewing traditions . Driven by their desire for a more delectable beverage, the monks worked continuously to improve their methods and some even went so far as to offer forgiveness to the faithful in exchange for beer recipes . There are now only seven Trappist monasteries producing beer. It is in their honor and in memory of the many monks who developed and enjoyed these types of beer over the centuries that we have created this divine nectar. Assoifé – 8 is a Belgian-style Dubbel that presents malted notes of dried fruit, accented with a subtle hint of molasses and toasted hazelnuts, ending with a slightly sweet and slightly bitter finish.

we may have waited too long to open this one up, but it didn’t age well for 10 months time. kind of dull and unassertive. a bit flat in flavor. i’ll definitely try it once again and not wait so long to open it.

lesifflebiere (1670) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Brune avec des reflets orangés, elle possède un film de mousse couleur crème. Odeurs de boisé, de sucre cuit, de cassonade. En bouche, caramel, un peu d'anis, elle est plutôt mince et légèrement aqueuse. Petite amertume en finale. Une bonne dubbel qui représente bien le style, mais qui aurait plus être plus fonceuse, plus franche. Néanmoins, elle demeure bien agréable.

BiereLuc (1259) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Bière brune aux reflets cuivrés avec un mince col de mousse. Nez de sucre cuit avec un peu de fruits rouges en profondeur. En bouche, la bière est plus pétillante qu’escompté, avec un goût de grains grillés (qui confère une amertume) et de cassonade (qui vient adoucir le portrait final).

Alpha10 (615) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2013
2013/07/01 - Pours a dark amber brown colour with a creamy khaki head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, toffee, molasses and dark fruits. Taste is similar to nose with a bitter coffee start and a sweet caramel aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with smooth and creamy carbonation. Taste is a little more subdued than expected given the aroma, but still a very drinkable dubbel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reebtogi (5681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2012
341ml bottle pours a dark amber color with a finger of light beige head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasant with some dark fruits and roasted grains. Taste is a dark fruity and malty sweetness with a roasted grain and light hop bitterness. Body is a little thin for the style, but carbonation is acceptable. Not the best dubbel out there, but certainly worth a try.
