COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

yourilevesque (1071) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2015
En bouteille au Farmhouse Tap & Grill de Burlington et compagnie de François Moisan et Mademoiselle Irina. Comme les autres Framinghammer que j’ai eu l’occasion de déguster dans le passé, cette bière est laiteuse, crémeuse et lactée à la manière d’une milk stout. Arômes de vanille, de lactose intense (trop pour moi) et de café en grains. Nez intéressant qui manque toutefois de complexité, tant la vanille est omniprésente. Effervescence agréable et texture des plus soyeuses. L’alcool est présent et le liquide s’estompe délicatement tel un dessert sur mon palais dorloté et bordé.

Bottle. Pours black in color with a beige head. Lots of roasted malts, light campfire, coffee and fresh licorice in aroma. Nice. Coffee, sweet chocolate and dark fruityness in taste. Smooth too, with a fairly dry and warming finish.

Palate was full bodied and soft with medium carbonation. Flavours were chocolate, sweetness, burnt malts, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste had dark chocolate, coffee and bitterness. A very well done roasty brew.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark black with a puffy tan head. Big aroma of roasted chocolate and coffee malts. Come hints of dark fruits as well. Definitely get a big mouthful of roasted coffee at the start with a nice and creamy chocolate and roasted malt middle. Lightly bitter on the finish.
