Minderbinder (1584) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle 500ml. [9%abv] Pours brown with huge beige head. Pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, roasted malt, pot, sugar. Taste is of roasted malt, alcohol, pine (strong conifer here), bitternes, sugar, resin. Palate: Medium-full bodied, soft to medium carbonation. Good balance. Overall: Pretty good. Just a tiny tad too sweet (there is plenty of hops), but good as it is. More and more piny as it warms up. Nothing off here, seems like good brewing to me.

(bouteille 500ml) - Bière brunâtre aux reflets rubis avec une mousse modérée en guise de coiffe. Le nez est simple et fruité. En bouche, une dominante houblonnée fait la loi alors qu’un reflet plus malté s’efface en douceur. L’amertume demeure en vie pendant de longues minutes alors que je prends ces notes insignifiantes. Deuxième produit embouteillé par Noire & Blanche; deuxième succès!

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
Dégustée en fût au Brasseur de Montréal. De couleur brune et voilée. Nez de noix grillées, moyen de malt légèrement rôti et caramélisé avec des traces terreuses, léger de pain, de houblon herbeux (notes citriques, résineuses et florales) et de biscuits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture légèrement crémeuse aux notes huileuses. Goût asséchant de noix grillées avec une légère amertume de houblon herbeux (discrètement présente en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de malt rôti aux faibles notes terreuses avec un léger goût de caramel et quelques traces de cacao et de pain puis en finale une l’amertume de houblon se veut plus résineuse. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux, et très légèrement résineux avec un léger goût de noix et des notes d’alcool très doux. (1er décembre 2011)

Quevillon (2407) - Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
Drank on tap (10 oz) at the brewpub on October 19, 2012. Red brown, medium head. Aroma of plum, raisin and licorice notes malted barley. A similar taste but more dry because of alcohol, a little sweet, bitter alcohol. So why the name (and the taste), you would need to see the brewer!!!

robinvboyer (2877) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2012
Nutty aroma, light cereals. Subtle piney hops, with some fresh cut grass and floral herbs. Solid body, solid carb. Mineral flavor with more roasty nuts. Light breads, and cereals, with a clean grassy finish.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012
Enjoyed on tap with Yan the brewer, at the brewpub. A decent brown ale, with chocolate and above average roasting. Akin to a dry stout. Yes, critics will note the lower abv, and the brewer claims it as a strong ale because of ageing and taste, however it best belongs to this category from my limited knowledge. Creamy mouthfeel. WIll have to follow this brewer at new digs.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
In short: A sweet nutty cookie in a pint. Decent.
How: Tap directly at the brewery restaurant
The look: Mahogany body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is very nutty and a bit sweet, it smells like a brownies. Taste has a lot of cookies, lots of toasted nuts, toasted brown sugar, a toasted pastry (croissant), crunchy brownies. No hops to speak of. A pleasant sweet nutty malt backbone that could make for a very good beer if there was more hops to oppose the malts. Still, this is so far the ‘best’ beer I’ve had from this brewery, and I used the term ‘best’ very loosely. This beer wasn’t bad but the problem with Brasseur De Montréal is that 99% of their beers give the rest a bad name.

rederic (2883) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
On tap at Brouhaha the regular version, dark brown color, with a tan head, sweet toasted, caramel, biscuity, roasted malt, nutty, cookie dough, toffee nose with a mild floral lime, lemon peel citrusy, leafy, grassy, cedary hop note, and a faint cereal bran muffin accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a nice toasted, dark, roasted, caramel, biscuity malt, flowery leafy, piney, cedary hoppy character with a dark bitter chocolate, minty leafiness, toffee, nutty flavors, with a lemon, lime rind, faint candied lemon marmalade backbone, leading towards a roasty maltiness, nutty, leafy, piney, cedary hop bitterness finish.

JulienHuxley (2515) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2012
On tap, described as barrel-aged brown ale. Dark brown pour with an off white foam. Aroma is quite laden with different things. I mainly pick up cherry, cinnamon, cocoa, anise and some oak. The barrel-aging appears really well done on this beer, mild bourbony notes in the aroma and flavor but not overpowering. Flavor is mellow and sweet. Fine winter warmer.
