Bottle. Pours amber brown, with a tan head that disappates slowly. Medium bodied, low carbonation, fine bubbles. Aroma is strong caramel, dark soy sauce. Taste is malt, sweet, caramel, slight clove & spice. Palate is slightly drying, thick and sweet. Finish is short, sweet, slightly drying with burnt malt. Very nice simple taste, with a good palate and finish.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Canette de 500 ml. Dégustée le 25 septembre 2011 (shaker). Bière limpide rousse. Col mince blanc crème, peu persistant. Très effervescente, bulles moyennes. Douce, peu sucrée, assez amère. Saveur un peu âcre de noix huileuses, plutôt sèche en finale. Manque de punch, plutôt fade.
