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!

Cette lager brune de type dunkel bock a une belle couleur brune et une mousse blanche généreuse. Au nez, des notes de raisins secs, de petits fruits confits, des notes vineuses et de chocolat noir de même que de caramel sont présentes. En bouche, un bon goût de malt arrive avec des notes de caramel, de mélasse et des notes de chocolat noir. Surprenant. Je recommande. Bon produit et excellente présence en bouche. Cheers!

500mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours a clearish dark brown with a medium beige head, and the aroma is a very solid rendition of the style. Prunes, dark bread, herbal hops, rich maltiness, everything is spot on. Flavour-wise it also delivers on all these notes, with a slightly oily, fuller mouth-feel. The rich sweetness has some balance in the finish from dry, herbal hops. I quite enjoyed this one, and it’s a solid example of a Dunkler Bock.

Beardbeerman (339) - 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!

Pours a dark brown with a velvet beige top. Aroma is chocolate and dark caramel malts. Taste is a strong slightly bitter toasted and toffee in the malt profile. A little chocolate to finish.

robinvboyer (4143) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2016
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.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
Bière cristalline, d’un cuivre profond et coiffée d’un fin col laissant une légère dentelle au verre. Des arômes de noix, de caramel roux et de pain frais. Amertume décente, avec très peu de sucre résiduel et une infime minéralité. C’est une bière à la texture moelleuse, à l’effervescence moyenne et à la finale ronde et aromatique.

A wonderful golden red liquid. Now that’s a really appealing brew. Nice munich malt notes. I am sold on munich malt, and maybe it’s the lack of Bock around here, but this brew gave me great fun. Might be a 3 if i’d rate in Deustchland, but here in Saint-Eustache, it’s all good malt.
