Wow, this IS good! Smells slightly of chocolate and berries, sweetly of malt and wood aromas. Quite dark, Very good head, pretty good lacing. Tastes smokey at first, as it goes down the flavour profile changes A LOT! First it is dark and cool, maybe too cold for the proper flavours to come out, then there is the sweetness of the malt and then it somehow combines the sweetness and the smoke flavour on the end palate so as you swallow it all warms up in your mouth and the flavour REALLY comes out. Fantasitic!

Tap. 8.7% ABV. Exceptional beer. Aromas of burnt caramel, toffee, chocolate, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, and long lasting. Palate is creamy, with a medium-to-full body. Dark brown, with a frothy white head.

Les Trois Mousquetaires Microbrassuers is a Canadian brewery located in in Brossard, Quebec. The Doppelbock comes in at 8% and is described as a strong beer. The brewer describes it as a "dark, extra full bodied lager after the best Bavarian tradition." Now for the tasting: dark brown colour head is foamy and creamy. Almost a meal by itself. nice bouquet sweet and rich taste, one for the lovers of trappiste beers (which includes me) This is one little cracker that hides it’s alcohol very well.

THOUGHTS: Whoa. Lots o’ sweetness here. Maybe a little too much. Rather high ABV for the style, but it hid the alcohol, which should be noticeable, a little too much. When I tried this a month and a half ago I was getting a bit sick of rating beers and took a little break from rating until I caught up with inputting my back reviews. I’m finally getting that done today. This was very good, if a little sweet. It all came together as it warmed. Very nice in the end. It was nice with Lindor chocolate truffles. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark, amber, brown that was nearly black in the glass, but red when backlit. It had a large, foamy, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma was moderate chocolate and chocolate syrup; ever so slight coffee; light spicy yeast; raisin, prune, cherry, port and alcohol. The initial flavor was rather sweet and somewhat acidic; while the finish was heavily sweet. There was cherry, raisin, alcoho, chocolate syrup, slight coffee, other dark fruit, lots of caramel, a little roasted malt, chocolate, molasses, a little yeast and red wine. It was all slightly watered down. The medium body was rather oily, but a bit creamy and sticky on the lips with soft yet tingly carbonation and a dry and light to moderately alcoholic finish.

Really outstanding. Poured with a huge tan thick foamy frothy head that slowly settles down and some lace. Color is a clear (?) very dark cherry wood. Aroma is excellent with roast malt licorice pipe tobacco caramel rye. Flavor is like aroma plus even more: cocoa nutmeats. I like the sweetness of it pretty much as that’s according to style; however, it is perhaps just a tad too sweet. Body is superb and so is carbonation just according to style. Finish is like flavor and again perhaps a tad sweet, but still great. Proly not session.

Bottle served in a mug. Foggy brown color. Thin white head, okay retention. Tastes like chocolate and caramel a whole lot, then come in the field berry flavors. Very good, thick texture, average level of carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden beneath the chocolate, caramel and fruits. Quite possibly the best beer I’ve had this season.

A - dark, slightly opaque when held to the light. A thick, tan head that dissolves quickly S - ripe fruit, and malts with slight alcohol undertones T - sweet, ripe fruit. Hints of chocolate as well. A little more alcohol towards the bottle of the bottle. Ridiculous complexity. M - medium feel. Aftertaste is long but pleasant. O - hides the 9.5 well. Easier to drink than you would think. A fantastic beer

Le corps est plein, les malts sont puissants avec les fruits confits, le caramel rôti. C’est un profil semblable aux barley wine anglais.

750ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours dark brown with red highlights. Aroma is complex...and delightful! Loads of caramel malt, [somehow] milk chocolate, toffee, dried fruits, and a little bit of vanilla if I’m not wrong. Taste is heavy on the sugary side, very lightly sour and bitterness is practically nonexistent. Body is full with a slick texture. Carbonation is very soft, near-flat. Finish is medium-long and lightly bitter. Overall, I have to say that this was a surprise. I’ve known Trois Mousquetaires for quite a while, but I had never tried their doppelbock...! A really, really good brew. Its good when cold, improves when it warms up a bit, but personally I would avoid letting it warm too much as the presence of alcohol will reveal itself a little too much and will prevail on other aromas. I tested this one over some time and when it came around 17C its profile changed in a way that made me like it a little less. Personal preference.
