Metalchopz (2404) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
Purchased a mixed 12-pack of "Les Connaisseurs" beers from this brewery. Pours a clean copper colour with a huge fomay tanned head that stays very long and with wavy-soapy lace. The nose is quite mild with raisins and notes of rust from the hop. Oily mouthfeel and medium-bodied. Dark fruit flavours with a light grassy background. Starts sweet but does not get overly syrupy. Just a tad too mild overall, which makes this Dubbel a little forgetting compared to other Quebec brews of the same style. Also, a bit light for a Dubbel.

Minderbinder (2015) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours brown/red, with good beige head, diminishing. Aroma is of fruits, malt, molasses. Taste is of fruits, malt, sweet. Somewhat acid, more than expected. An OK beer.

Lukaduke (2373) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 25, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a ruby brown with a big gaseous head that grew out of the glass. The aromas are faint but whiffs of raisins and cherry. Its taste very similar to some flemish reds, a little sweet burnt sugar and a touch of sour cherry. Nice undertones of cola, fig and hazelnuts. Pleasant Surprise!

presario (4709) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle. Label says "8" rather than "6" but style and ABV are the same. Huge 80% head that required waiting a while to try. Lasting yellow-brown foam on crisp copper. Aroma has some sweetness and dark malt. Nice body. Dark malt is tasty with hints of chocolate and plums, although there is an underlying sourness that seems out of place and slows you down. A hint of saltiness.

In mouth, a herbaceous malt with light grassy extract, Belgian yeast, coriander, oily mouthfeel, light alcohol warmth. Tasted at Bières des Neiges et Vins d’Hiver, Fev. 17 2012.

probstblueribbon (3062) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2012
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Very deep mahogany with a nice orange-tan foam. Aroma: Slightly tangy fruits, brown sugar, warm spices, almost a touch of smoke, a wee bit of funk, dark dried fruits, vinous, hints of vanilla and wood, some darker-roasted malt notes, nice. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full, rounded effervescence. Flav.: Boozy dark dried fruits, fruit cake, brown sugar, some light tangy/bright fruit notes, sour cherries, warm spice notes, some root beer herbal notes, good; dry with limited bitterness and a slightly thin (for style) finish with fruits and a little brown sugar.

Not perfect, but certainly decent.

UM02 (313) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2012
Nice roasty malt tasting brune. Burnt malt, a subtle not overpowering sweetness, some hazelnut flavour. Not enough subtle or hidden flavours to be a great beer of this style but still solid. As in many of its beers (its stout being the exception) this brewery seems to be aiming to brew a standard beer of this style with nothing too risky or offputting for the non-beer connaisseur. Unlike many of the breweries who are aiming at a less specialized market they are still able to brew a good beer while doing this. Not going to be on any top ten lists but still a pleasant and enjoyable beer. The only complaints can be about what is not there (more subtle, varied flavours) not what is there.
