4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from latest vintage (2012). Thanks to me. Intense malty/red fruity aromas emanate from this deep brown brew. It is topped by a small but persistent head that leaves some heavy lacing. Taste-wise is it malty but not cloyingly so. Flavors of plums, malt, chocolate and bread make the experience so complete. This is a world league quad, one that should be respected and I echo the brewers’ wish that it should be aged for at least six months as I just experienced empirically!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bien équilibrée et intense, sucré et maltée accent sur le caramel. Légere amertume et de fruit. Malgré le niveau d’alcool élevé on ne récent pas une chaleur trop prononcée. Tel que mentionné cette biere d’inspiration Belge mais je n’y retrouve pas le goût de la levure Belge dont certaines bieres québécoises ont réussirent a obtenir.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
March 31, 2016. Bottle, bottled November 2, 2015.
Deep ruby red with a small frothy tan head that quickly dissipates into a small ring around the edge. Aroma is sweet brown sugar, baked pear, notes of prunes, dark berries, roasted malt and alcohol.
Taste is sweet, slight boozy, soft bitter. Finish is sweet toffee, dark bread, light notes of burnt sugar, dried fruits, dark berries and lasting warming alcohol. Medium bodied, very fine, slightly fizzy carbonation.
Good but a bit hot at the moment, five months since bottling so I guess it would benefit with more time.
