Moderate to full, malty and sweet aroma, caramel and some fruitiness and herbal hoppyness, some alcohol, Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some fruitiness and caramel, some alcohol with herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and faint fruitiness, some herbal hoppyness, alcohol. Too sweet and too much alcohol - herbal hopppyness just do not work here.

Bottle, 4x341ml for 9,99$, this is so cheap the massive malted barley attack and deep herbal hoppiness in this beer. A little harsh and pretty alchoolic, even boozy, but with a lot of pleasant fruity and slightly citrusy flavors, with hints of sweetness and honey. Long dry and warming aftertaste. Another mostly pleasant offering in that momentum serie. Without the help of god, it is call magic. With Its help, as this brewer name suggests, it’s called a miracle, and here’s yet another small one.

Bouteille 341 ml. 8.5%. Couleur jaune foncé presque ambrée. Mousse blanche. Arôme de céréales, houblon et un peu de citrus. En bouche, crémeuse, herbes, malt, agrumes et un peu de de caramel. Finale en amertume et un peu de sucré. Excellente. Merci encore Dieu du Ciel.

JulienHuxley (5506) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle. Clear copper pour, thin white head. Nice aroma of german hops, quite grassy, some malty pumpkin-like presence too. Taste is full of hoppy bitterness, residual sugars, fruity alcohol. Palate is nice, med bodied, good carbonation, nice finish. Probably one of the best imperial pilsners I’ve had.

(Rating numéro 800, 341 ml) Le liquide a une robe dorée passablement foncée. La petite tête blanche se retire après quelques minutes. Une dentelle se dessine sur le verre. Le nez est un échange harmonieux entre des céréales mielleuses et des parfums de foin et de fleurs des champs. Des arômes fruités réussissent à s’affirmer. Les saveurs sont très intéressantes : des houblons amérisants et aromatiques viennent appuyer des notes maltées légèrement sucrées. En bouche, le liquide prend un bel espace. Son pétillement modéré honore les saveurs. Sa texture est épaisse, huileuse à souhait. La finale est marquée par une amertume de houblons bien poivrés.

Metalchopz (3016) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2011
Originally rated November 2008. Enjoyed at the brewpub itself. Poured a golden-copper colour with a small white head that left a ring of lace. Hardly any carbonation. The nose was quite hoppy with some grain malts in the background. Watery mouthfeel. The taste had this very bitter hop resulting in some dryness in the back of the throat, and some wetness at the tip of the tongue. Overall, quite a kick of hoppy flavours. Very interesting style, that I am trying for the first time. Probably, could not enjoy two in a row of these though.

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Amber pour with a tight creamy white head. The aroma is nicely zesty and a little bit floral over a nice sweet pilsner malt base. There is a bit of vanilla and a bit of creaminess to the aroma. The flavour is bright and fresh with a lot of noble hop character. Lemon peel and a bit of herbal hoppiness. Long lingering bitter finish. Fresh and herbal with a nice lingering peppery character.

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2010
Clear golden with a thin head. Aroma is sweet malt, herbs, honey floral notes and fruits (mostly citrus). Flavor is floral with sweet malt, honey, alcohol, citrus and a bitter sweet aftertaste. Oily mouthfeel.

lefossoyeur (563) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2010
Clear blonde with a thin white head. Some herbal hops on the nose but it’s dominated by warm alcoholic notes. Medium to thin body, very warm, almost burning alcohool mouthfeel, slight bitterness in the mid palate that quickly dissapear behind the heavy alcoholic notes again. Unbalanced to me.

Un verre sur place, belle bière dorée-cuivrée, peu de mousse, goût frais malgré l’alcool, ample en bouche, bonne amertume, produit réussie.
