Au Québec, disponible seulement en fut.
Un goût de malt roti et plain de saveur sucré, mais qui ne tombe pas sur le coeur. Un arome riche et chaleureux.

330 ml Bottle, 6.5% a/v
Very rich in color with a large off white, almost light brown head. Smells of wood and malt. Nice spicy taste with a mildly hoppy aftertaste. This is a damn fine beer.
Then again i always was a sucker for Brunnettes!

10-oz glass at Hopleaf in Chicago. Dark mahogany with a lasting touch of creamy head...rich, deep malty nose with lots of sweet caramel and plum...body more plummy, slightly peppery-alcoholic (nicely warming, not harsh), moderately sweet and lightly yeasty-musty. Really nice, just a solid simple pleasant-drinking beer to go with the excellent rustic rabbit I was eating.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A bit of dark sugary malt presence, long bitter hops, and decent body... overall not that bad, far better than most universally available pub choices.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2005 13 November 2005 on tap at Belgian Beer Café, Perth:
Near black in appearance, although not opaque, creamy brown tinged head, very good rings of lacing. Quite a bitter taste with roasted type flavours of coffee, brown sugar, licorice and light spices. Also a touch of alcohol. Mouthfeel was a little powdery and even thin. Overall a decent beer, but not particularly a favourite of mine.
