cfrancis (2154) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2011
Pours an amber gold with a thin white top. Aroma is malt and a nice floral hop. Taste is a bold blast of floral hops backed with a great caramel malt flavour. Excellent beer.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, pours a clear bronze with a small white head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citrus and a bit of candied sugar. Flavour of candied sugar, potent grassy hops and some bready malts to back. Borders the line between an imperial pilsner and imperial IPA. Full-bodied for the style and very flavourful. Excellent.

Bottle (341 ml). Completely clear golden with a medium mostly diminishing white head and huge lacing. Aroma is grassy and mineral with notes of caramel and alcohol. Taste is grassy with booze, noble hops and caramel. Mouthfeel is oily. Impressive body for a pilsner. This beer is greatly balanced, quite complex and fairly drinkable for is 8.5% abv. Massive Imperial Pilsner. Another wonderful beer by DDC!

dandeman (451) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2012
Aroma: Alcohol is sticking out at first with notes of cereal. After we get the malted notes of sugar cane, caramel and cherry and blackcurrant that are coating it all. Kind of a good complex nose that is sticking out just right. Appearance: Creamy average head, sticking to glass and leaving a fair lacing. Gold color and average sparkling. Taste: Delicacy and ’’finesse’’ would be the words to describe the attack, with notes of caramel, cherry and blackcurrant. Very malty attack. This would be the perfect example of a full creamy body. Notes of cereal like barley and oatmeal are also present. Finish is subtly hoppy which makes it a characteristic superior quality pilsner.

Gethinbeer (2070) - Musky, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Interesting fruit, peach floral aroma. Frothy white head and lace clinging to the glass. Crisp, fruit wine gum flavour. Bitter malt finish. Tangy, spicy beer. Oily texture.

coldbrewky (1411) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle courtesy of MartinT. Merci! Robust from the get-go. Nose of rich sweet malt supported by light piney hops. Nose translates directly to large body. Overall short lived on tongue. Desire for more easily outweighs the mere 341 ml bottle. A beautiful deep golden brass in glass. Steady carbonation yields decent head. Biscuit in finish. MMMmmm.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Hop/malt in the aroma, orange, with a small vanilla custard head. Highly malted flavour, strong presence of hops, fruity. Full bodied, well balanced, very good bitterness. Wonderful!

TaktikMTL (5546) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2005
Verre de dégustation (provenant d’un fût) au Mondial de la Bière 2005 (Montréal, QC). Arôme: Odeurs de céréales et de citron. Apparence: Couleur blonde légèrement voilée. Mince col crémeux. Aucune bulle. Fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’agrumes, de céréales avec une légère touche d’alcool. Court arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Arrière goût de céréales. (Rating #173)

SlovakSniper (2811) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2011
(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.

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.
