3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Verre de 20 oz, d’un fût au Pub Brouhaha. Arômes de bacon fumé et salé. Robe rousse et claire, très belle mousse et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, le malt fumé (bacon, bbq) est bien présent et accompagné d’un filet de caramel. Le corps est plutôt mince, mais accentue le côté désaltérant de la bière. Finale plutôt douce, avec une très légère amertume.

On tap at the Brouhaha, amber-orangeish color, with a white head, ashen, smoked malt nose, with a peaish vegetable accent, hints of smoked ham and mussels, with a faint floral hop leafy aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a toasted, peaish smoked malt character, with a faint mussel smokiness accent, and some flowery hop leafy notes, leading towards a smoky, lingering hop bitterness finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2009-06-06. Dark amber body is essentially headless. Smokey pulled pork and bbq aroma. Flavour is fairly mild, touch of smokey undertones that have a subtle layer that I am not fully appreciating. Average palate. Average beer that is lost on me with the smokey character. Meh. On tap at Mondial 2009, Montreal

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head. Very pleasant aroma of smoked malt that leaves an image of smoked ham in my mind. Very good flavor of smoked ham, there’s a strong malt presence in there and mild hops. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20 oz imperial pint on tap at Vices et Versa in Montreal. Aroma is a touch sour, acetic with some definite smoked malts present. Bacon aromas, etc that lead this beer to be quite quaffable. Attractive transparent amber-copper body with a frothy off-white head and nice lacing present. Smoked malty, chewy start which becomes a bit acidic and astringent. Finishes with a nice bitter, grassy, hoppiness. Very late, burnt, roasted maltiness. A very solid rauchbier.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clearish copper coloured lager with intense carbonation feeding a mostly lasting off-white head. Earthy, woody, shyless aroma where smoke is the dominating turn point, but does not hinder the approaching berries and soft esters. Soft flowery, leafy hops do not bother with procuring much bitterness as the beer was never too sweet to begin with. Placid smoke never bends and the only hindrance might be the metallic element initially perceived from the nose and confirmed in the finish. The malts/yeast had a little acidity to them, though I would still call it fresh and presume this is related to the fact that this came from the bottom of the keg.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The look: clear amber body topped by a large off-white head
The style: Classic german-style Smoked
The stuff: First thing first I should specify that I got the end of a keg. The pint I requested turned-out to be 2/3 pint despite all the efforts of the waiter. Nose has medium intensity smoke with a definite meaty element to it (pork?). The beer had a full thick body but it might be because it was the end of the keg and I got all the meat. I got a doughy cheesy yeast sensation and the malt profile had a slight bagels feel to it. The whole think ended-up feeling like a meaty smoked cheese-cake! Not much fruitiness, spices or whatever else and it was just fine like that. Whether it’s a relationship or a Trou Du Diable beer I’m always looking forward for the consummation.
The how: On tap at Vices & Versa
The conclusion: Fulfilling meaty Smoked, I Really liked it. Need to have it again to make sure my end-of-keg glass was or wasn’t what it’s supposed to be.
