Lager Brune

Dès leur arrivée en Bavière, les bières brassées à Einbeck furent très prisées. Avec l’accent bavarois « Einbeck bier! » devint « Eine bock bier! » (Une bière bock!). Ce genre de lager forte et maltée s’appropria le nom bock. Le bouc (bock en allemand) en devint le symbole. L’Entêté est inspirée des dunkel bocks traditionnelles et plus foncées de Bavière. Ses notes bien senties de malt grillé et un accent légèrement caramélisé donnent à L’Entêté une bonne présence en bouche qui satisfera l’amateur de bières maltées. Ses houblons continentaux nobles équilibrent ses saveurs sans apporter d’amertume prononcée. Prost!

Since its arrival in Bavaria, beers brewed in the Lower Saxony city of Einbeck were highly prized by beer drinkers. With a Bavarian accent “Einbeck bier! ” sounded like ” Eine bock bier! ” Gradually this linguistic difference gave name to a distinctively strong, malty lager beer with a goat (“bock” in German) as its symbol. L’Entêté is inspired by traditional Bavarian dunkel bocks. Its prominent “toasted biscuit” malty notes and slightly caramelized touch give L’Entêté a pleasing mouthfeel that will satisfy the malt aficionado. Continental noble hops balance the flavor without bringing much bitterness. Prost!

Bière brune de 6 % d’alcool. Petit col au versement, légèrement pétillante. Elle possède un odorat d’Okeefe. On goûte une grosse amertume en bouche avec un goût métallique en finale. Léger goût de torréfaction et un coup la bière à la température pièce, on goûte un peu le caramel crémeux. Correcte !

Pours a murky brown, with a big beige head. Incredibly malty nose. Big notes of sweet grains, caramels, and fresh bread with some dry hay, and grassy hops. Good carb, mouth feel is viscous. Finish is sweet, but not cloying. Big bread notes, loads of sweet grains. This borders on doppelbock.

Beardbeerman (311) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a deep amber topped by two fingers of creamy beige head showing a rough structure, great retention and nice chunky lacing. Vivid microcarbonation is spotted underneath the porous layer that the head leaves. The nose is toffee, raisins, toasted/nutty malts giving off hints of almonds and some spice (savory and nutmeg). The taste follows the same profile with a nice balance between the nutty and the sweet. The brew feels medium bodied, a bit liquorish with a slight fluid aspect. The bitterness is just right and sets the finish on a long nutty road. I would pair this Dunkel with a hearty beef stew, brisket or a chocolate dessert. Cheers!

Passe un peu dans le beurre; manque de caractère mais se boit tout de même bien sans détruire trop les papilles.

HippyHop (583) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Pour is a muddy reddish-brown with no head/lacing/retention, as expected. Nose is toffee, prunes, raisins and spice - basically mincemeat, come to think of it. There’s a bit of nuttiness as well. Taste is toffee, prunes, hazelnuts, and the aforementioned mincemeat. Body is medium, texture is oily, and a touch watery, with just a touch of bitterness to go with the fruit/caramel/alcohol that linger a bit on the finish. This brewery rarely wows me, but they also rarely disappoint.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4173) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2014
On tap at the brewery. The brewery’s first lager. A stone fruit or fruitcake bready aroma. Toasted malts, sweetly balanced and medium-thin bodied but possibly thin for the style in my opinion.

Spab (3180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
500 ml bottle from Drummondville Metro. Pours a clear dark copper colour with moderate-sized eggshell-coloured head. Aroma is fruity with some nuts, roast and an odd spiciness. Flavour is lightly roasty, sweet caramel, banana and other fruitiness, light nutiness and an underwhelming spicy note. Average body. Ok.

vadie (1184) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Un couleur du caramel opaque avec un petit tête beige. L’arôme est du malt sucré avec un peu de caramel et sucre brun. Le goût est un peu sucré et très malté avec une peu du, peut-être, fruit noir comme les pruneaux. Carbonatation moyenne avec une finition assez sec.
