Bought it at Wine-O. What a wonderful beer! Pours a deep brown color with a nice tan head. Light bodied, well balanced, sweet bread at the beginning, but a nice dry ending due to the hops/

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at St-Hubert pub (this is their most "exotic", which is at least an effort from this popular chain restaurant to offer something a little different than Molson Export and Rickard’s Red), and many times in bottle, 12,69$ the six-pack in grocery stores in the Montréal region. For the price, it’s quite interesting. Never been overwhelmed neither disappointed. Fruity and sweet, refreshing and easily drinkable, only slightly bitter finish, not very hoppy, all in all maybe a little dull to me, maybe because I have been overwhelmed by Le Naufrageur’s new Swordfish (Peluso, pay the 18,99$ for 64 oz, it’s worth it), which was a little alike but with more pronounced malt flavors and an amazing abundant hop finish.

Bottle from Montreal. Very dark copper with a very big lasting brown head and lacing. Strong dark malt aroma with hints of candy sugar and yeast. Dark malt, brown sugar, plum and apple flavour. I found it too sweet to really enjoy though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber almost black colour and a small white foam. Has a weak spicey smell. The taste is a bit metallic and mildly spiced. A bit weak in the taste. Not as good as the Blonde.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 mL Bottle. Pours a deep brown / ruby with a 3-finger pale beige head that does take longer than average to settle to a thin foamy film but lasts and seems to want to leave ample lace on the sides. The aroma is malt and grains, a bit of toasted malt, an accent of spices, and an innuendo of citrus and yeast. The taste is rich malt and toffee with an aftertaste of sweet toasted malt followed by a lingering toffee-like finish. Delicious! As you can see, I’m a sucker for those full-bodied dark beers and the Belgians scored big again on my roster with this one. That mouth-feel just makes me want to have another. For a cool summer evening by the camp fire, this is it!

En mustig öl som sprider sig i munnen likt ringar pĺ vattnet. Smakerna avlöser varandra, nyanseras allt eftersom. Den avslutande upplevelsen av mörk choklad är mycket behaglig. Lite jämnntjock dock.

it has been a long time coming reviewing this one, aroma is a nice toffee with some herbs and spice. Appearence is ruby brown with a thin but lingering head that coats the glass with lacing. Flavour is initial sugary sweetness that develops to more caramel with a long cloyingly sweet finish with great bitterness inbetweent. If only all macros were this nice!!
