COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
energetic and full-bodied taste with sweetish pronounced tone, brown copper color and with a creamy foam of beige tonality, bouquet harmonious and elegant. Category "Belgian Strong Dark Ale", style "brown ale", this beer is produced with the method of the triple fermentation, means that it has three doses of malt more than the quantity used for other beers, added in three different phases of workmanship, like the last phase where the malt is directly put in the bottle or the keg.

lesifflebiere (1332) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Un peu trouble, cette brune épaisse aux accents olfactifs rappelant une dubbel d’abbaye émet des notes de prunes, de raisins rouges et de cassonade. La bouche est très fruitée, surtout du raisin ; des saveurs très franches, mais également accessibles, dans un accord bien fait où l’alcool se fait discret. Une bien bonne bière, plus simple que plusieurs de son style, mais riche et enivrante.

Bendrixian (1162) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Part of a 6 pack at the LCBO. Pours a murky brown colour with a really effervescent white head. Esters and toffee like aroma with a hint of dark berries and bready. Sweet palate, has a boozy alcohol burn and tons of stewed fruit. Very nice beer.

Fashawn (168) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 21, 2014
Schiuma marroncina densa ed intensa corposa e grossa ma non troppo persistente, non compatta ed aderente, che scompare gradualmente lasciando in vista il bel colore marrone scuro, quasi coca cola, della birra. Si sente l’orzo torrefatto, accompagnato da un pizzico di caffè che non è propriamente presente ma percettibile grazie anche all’impatto visivo. Un pizzico di caramello, per un aroma molto persistente. Alla bocca invece rende sapori di frutta secca ed appaga il palato con la sua corposità, accompagnato dal caramello.

Een heel lekker biertje dat vol van smaak is maar toch vlot weg drinkt. Dit was een meevaller!

Lele (143) - Padova, ITALY - JUN 28, 2014
Ottima birra, dal corpo strutturato. All’aroma è piacevolissima: si percepisce chiaramente il maltato e il caramello, ma inaspettatamente anche un lieve aroma di luppolo. In bocca è molto interessante: chiare note di frutta essiccata, soprattutto prugne, sentori caramellati, ma sempre quel leggero gusto luppolato di fondo che bilancia il maltato e la rende una birra non estremamente dolce, quanto più che altro abboccata. Gusto rotondo e deciso, alcool presente ma non esagerato.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2014 Bottle 33cl. Brussel. Aroma is malts and dark fruit. The taste was fruity with some caramel sweetness. Very drinkable.

Kosmokrator (504) - ITALY - JUN 2, 2014
Denso color marrone scuro con riflessi rubino in controluce ed un massiccio cappello di soffice schiuma beige. Aroma dolciastro, fruttato e caramellato; gusto anch’esso dolciastro con note di toffee, frutta sciroppata e un retrogusto leggermente tostato e più amarognolo. Corpo medio, struttura parzialmente liquorosa, effervescenza vivace.

Icedwarf (394) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2014
Bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zuur en bitter, caramel, chokolade en citroen. Goed bier, blijft niet lang hangen.

Bottle 33 CL. Pours brown with some red and a persistent creamy fan head. Aroma is fruity perhaps notes of banana. Taste is sweet caramel. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. High drinkability though high ABV.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bouteille de 330 ml achetée à la LCBO Rideau à Ottawa. Dégustée le 7 décembre (Tulip). Bière brune foncée opaque. Mousse beaucoup, col épais beige crème, grossier et durable. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de crème, de levure et de café. Goût de noisettes, de noix de Grenoble. La meilleure des 3 bières du Boucanier essayées jusqu’à maintenant mais n’a pas le raffinement des meilleures belges.
