On tap (12 oz) at L’Amère à Boire. Clear dark copper with a small off-white head leaving good lacing. Aroma is of fresh bread and fresh cereals along chocolatey notes, caramel, mild fruitiness and earthy notes. Taste is also fresh bread and fresh cereals along chocolate, nutty notes, mild fruitiness, caramel and minereal/earthy notes. Light to medium body. Medium to good carbonation. Rather dry finish. Short aftertaste. Nice malt depth despite the low abv and light-ish body. Extremely easy drinking and quenching while quite flavorful.

Superbe arome de cereales fraichement broyés et de chocolat, vraiment frais et élégant pour une si petite bière. Ça se poursuit en bouche avec une agréable torréfaction et même une membrane houblonnée. Belle petite bête.

Une robe acajou. Une belle tête mousseuse. Une dentelle collante. Un nez étonnant. Du bon pain grillé. Des grains entiers. Une touche de houblons. Un accent chocolaté. Des saveurs qui suivent les arômes. Des céréales qui rappellent les pains slaves. Des houblons et des malts foncés qui présentent un profil plutôt asséchant. Une lointaine touche fruitée. Un corps moyen avec un juste pétillement. Une texture qui me rappelle la petite crème. Une finale qui permet l’émergence d’une fine amertume.

Une pinte sur place. 3,6% alc /vol. Bière brune foncée avec une belle mousse. Nez de houblon, léger, frais. Bouche agréable, rôtie, torréfaction légère, fraîche. Beaucoup de goût pour une bière avec si peu d’alcool. Surprenante et très agréable.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2010
Draught at L’Amère à Boire. Pours a deep amber-brown with a small creamy tan head. Nice aroma, it’s roasty along with some coffee, chocolate, caramel and a bit of cream. Flavour, Wow, it’s a touch watery but this is really flavourful for a 3.6% beer -- well done! Malty, chocolaty and a bit roasty. Average bodied. Great stuff, kudos for such a great Mild beer.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2010
Draught - April 23, 2009 - at LAmère à Boire. Pulled from the elephant at the bar (sadly, not out of the elephant’s ass ...). Holy crap this is a dark, opaque beer for well under 4% - pretty much solid black, with some red around the edges - and a solid creamy beige or darker head. Has a really interesting aroma - long-dried wildflowers and very dry roast cocoa malt with a hint of dairy cream - not at all sweet - frankly, this seemed more a mild, but either way, roasty, no alcohol, appealing, and dry. The taste follows, but it’s even more like a mild - less cocoa, still not sweet, and it has an almost scorched fresh dry grain taste too it - sessionable and outstanding either way. Light-bodied, softly carbonated, absolutely no alcohol at all (I could drink buckets of this), and a nice dry, slightly bitter linger. Wonderful light beer.

rederic (3256) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2010
Dark brown color, with a thick tan head, leaving some laces, nice light smooth chocolatey, cocoa, roasted, toasted malt nose with some hints chocolate praline, raw maltiness, and some light burnt fruitcake notes in the aroma follows through on a light-bodied palate with a mild roasted, chocolate, toasted malt, mochaish, chocolatey praline character with some faint dark dried fruit, black coffee flavors and a hint of molasses, leading towards a soft roasted, chocolatey, lingering bitterness finish.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2010
Drank on tap (20 oz) at the brewpub, March 28, 2010. Dark nut brown, average pale beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, plenty of raw grains and nuts. Taste of sweet malt coffee, slightly bitter, an aftertaste of bittersweet chocolate. Quite tasty and enjoyable for a -4%!

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2010
A deep dark reddish brown ale with a thin lacing dark moka head. An herbaceous grainy nutty malt aroma, a bit wild and off. In mouth, a smooth nutty and herbal malt, a bit ligt in body, served cask temperature. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 12 2010.

Diogène (1145) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Dark black with a thin head. Average retention. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, coffee and herbal notes. Flavor is Coffee, chocolate, cereals and some bitterness. Thin to medium body. I am amazed at the amount of flavor for a 3,5% abv beer. This is dangerously drinkable with a solid flavor profile. Very well done!
