2012-12-31. Black body with a nice foamy brown head. Fruity with a mild wine influence, modest dark malt character. 7+ Flavour is lovely, rich dark malt, modest fruity character throughout, light wine, very light roast note. Smooth rich palate with light carbonation. More nuanced than I have described here, lovely stuff. Very very good. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

À la brasserie pour l’anniversaire: Un mariage réussi entre les malt rôtis, les tanins et la pointe vineuse. Derrière la scène, des accents plus complexes de fruits rouges, fudge et noisettes affluent sans relâche. Excellent liquide de dégustation.

On tap at the DDC 13th anniversity party. Deep brown in colour with an off white coloured head. The aroma is slight sweet, some dark fruits, light wine. The flavour has some light roast, some caramel sweetness, wood and grape skins. Finishes long, some light sweetness, woody and warm.

12oz bottle from BD Camden during tap takeover. It pours a hazy apricot color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is fruity, funky, zesty, tangy, very nice. Taste has notes, of red wine, funk, hay, lemon, wood, orange zest, vanilla. Finishes acidic with notes of citrus and mango. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, great beer, delicious

On cask at 12th anniversary party of DDC. Dark pour. Aroma of roasted malts, saison-ish and a lot of grapes combine very well together into a complex well woven fresh winey strong beer aroma. Taste is quite enjoyable, I like the saison caracter and the pinot really comes out more than the oak/wood flavors which is nice. Palate was very good for a cask conditioned ale, lightly carbonated and creamy. A real win.

Tap. Yes, I had this, that’s all I’m gonna say. Was told this involves brett, but details were not forthcoming beyond that. Hazy orange, fairly bright, with a decent-sized lasting creamy off-white head. Lovely funky aroma, smells like aromatherapy orange oil, citrus zest and 2-yr-old Orval with a hint of oak, plus some sweet nutty malt character. The taste is more dominated by the oak, some vanilla along with the resin, but it’s a lot like a wine-barrel aged citrus cantillon - not boozy, but definitely strong - fantastic, really, what more to say? Average body, slick, slightly astringent mouthfeel, mild carbonation, with a bit of an acidic linger - smooth and balanced, takes its time, leaves a dry aftertaste - lovely, loved it, well done DdC, let’s see more experiments like this one!

Whatup14 (801) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2012
En fût au 14e anniversaire de DDC. Couleur noire opaque, mousse moka assez dense. Arôme boisé, de fruits, de malt rôti, un peu floral. Goût boisé, de malt torréfié, de café, avec une finale un peu florale. Texture assez riche et un peu huileuse, carbonation moyenne.

[4221-20111231] Bottle. Sweet roasted nut grain aroma has a bit of chocolate cocoa. Black body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Cocoa roasted wood nut flavour has a long bitter coffee finish. Full body is bitterly balanced. Delicious, impressive. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0

Draft with Andrew pouring at The Festival in MA. Pours a dark, murky brown body with thin ring of lacing. Aroma is wine, molasses, sweet dark fruit and light hop. Mouthfeel is medium and oily with notes of wine, dark fruit, oak, molasses, and some sweet flavors towards the end.

(Bouteille 341ml du release du 6e anniversaire) - Bière noire à la mousse moka. Nez de café frais et de chocolat. En bouche, les notes boisées se mélangent parfaitement à l’amertume d’une torréfaction juste et soignée. Tout est dosé quelque part entre l’intensité et la retenue. Une belle acidité vient compléter le portrait alors qu’en bouche, il ne reste que les épaves d’une belle levure. Mes souvenirs de la version du Mondial il y a deux ans étaient plus grandioses, mais ça demeure un foutu de bon produit à s’offrir
