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.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This Dubbel is the setting for the synergistic relationship of earthy cocoa, candied fruit and peppery hop flavors, all evolving in a frothy mouthfeel perfect to showcase pleasant intricacies.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A beautiful head of foam recedes into the ruby red (colour is thus a tad lighter than the usual Dubbel).
-Flavor intensity is delicate, which is perfect for this highly drinkable brew.
-This might not be earth-shattering within its category, but it is highly harmonious and enjoyable throughout.
-The nose is more singular than the flavor profile.
-Leafy hops accompany earthy cocoa impressions into the finish.
-Flavor profile is balanced from beginning to end.
-Body is lean (not too sweet, yeah!) and the residual sugars are well levelled with the carbonation’s medium-high intensity.
-There aren’t enough dark malt flavors for my personal tastes in the style.

solidfunk (7610) - 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.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2011
Draught at Bistro L’Autre Oeil, Aylmer. Pours a hazy orange-copper with an average size mostly-lasting fluffy off-white head. Yeasty aroma along with some light candi sugar, caramel malt, fruit and floral notes. Flavour of Belgian yeast, caramel malt, light spices, some alcohol, candi sugar, fruit and light hops. Lightly bitter, slightly harsh, dry finish. Medium bodied. Nothing great, just a good Dubbel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar and fruity ester is quite charming. Taste is a nice balance mix between some candi sugar notes with some fruity ester and solid malt backbone with light dry fruits. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with nice drinkability/complexity level.

reebtogi (5676) - 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.
