COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

tom10101 (4798) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle (341 ml). Brown with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is light with some fruits, brown sugar and malt. Taste is about the same with a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel is watery and acid. Body is thin. So far, I’m not impressed by the "Assoiffé series"...

LBarouf (116) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
341ml bottle
Appearance : Clear dark amber with medium head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Light belgian yeast with light caramel. Light nutty notes. Some red fruits. Interesting fruits. Light hops too. A bit spicy
Taste : Yeast with red fruits. Some brown sugar. Spicy and nutty.
Palate Finish is spicy with notes of cinnamon. Light bitterness, not much sugar. Carbonation quite soft which isn’t exactly to style. Well maybe not soft but is starts pickly and quickly fades. Not sure this is bottle conditioned. Light banana bread on finish...
Overall : Not bad. Nose slightly better than taste. Would have liked a little bit more residual sugar and a fluffier carbonation. Quite drinkable and rather complex especially considering the low abv. Quite clean and well brewed. I think finish is a bit too bitter for the style (probably due to the lack of residual sweetness).

solidfunk (6791) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Smells sweet, malty. Pours mahogany. Some decent lacing and head. Tastes just sweet without much interesting palate. A little roast malt and smoked in the aroma as well. Bottle from Delires du terroir.

rarbring (2105) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2012
Aroma: Smelling roasted barley, burnt rubber, blackcurrant leaves.
Appearance: A clear brownish read beer with a warm off-white head, little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Starting with brown toast, toffee, fruits, grape-fruit peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, soft and sticky, big body.
Overall: A malt dominated brew. Rather bland.
Note: Bottle 341 ml, thx to KM. Reviewed 2012-08-25.

Frothmeister (695) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy dark brown with red hues, and a huge beige head of fine bubbles. The aroma has strong mineral notes, with dates, bitter red fruit, alcohol, bread crust, coffee, earthy notes, and dough. As for taste, it’s very sour (under-ripe plum), with a little butter, woodyness, dried fruits, rotten red fruit, molasses, coffee, green beans, and a bitter finish. It’s weird. I wouldn’t recommend it, but I don’t fully dislike it either. I can’t say that I’ve ever tasted a beer like this, and it’s kind of growing on me the more I have. Beware I guess...

Ratman197 (12570) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of coriander, carmel, cocoa, fruittiness and light molasses. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, toffee, cola, fruittiness, coriander and light spice with a crisp lingering toffee/coriander finish.

Ric_Olie (7) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012 does not count
Bottle. I am not a pro in Dubbel, but this one seems to be pretty near the style (according to what I read) The smell of the beer is very yeasty, but fruity too. In the mouth, the beer is very heavy. Good, but heavy. It is a fruity beer, very sweet. The color of the beer is Ruby Red. Hazy, but not totally cloudy. The finish of this beer is lightly bitter, almost sour. Very complex, but definitly for degustation, not for drinking on a patio.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2012
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur brune foncée et voilée. Nez de malt sucré genre sucre brun et caramel (notes de butterscotch), de levures fruitées (raisins, notes de prunes, traces de bananes) légèrement épicées avec des notes de chocolat , de houblon herbeux, d’alcool et de noix. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux petites notes crémeuses. Goût de levures fruitées (prunes, moyen de raisins, traces de figues et de bananes) et légèrement épicées (poivre doux, traces de cannelle) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel butterscotch avec notes de toffee rôti, un léger goût de sucre brun et de pain grillé puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant accompagné d’une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes florales. Post-goût moyen-long, léger-moyen amer d’alcool doux, de houblon herbeux avec un goût de levures fruitées (pelures de prunes, traces de moût de raisins) avec des notes de noix grillées.

Metalchopz (2964) - 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 (3157) - 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.
