Bière brune au goût de noisette, cette «Brown Ale» américaine présente un léger goût de café, enrichie de généreux houblons américains.

Pours a really dark brown with a offwhite head that leaves really good lacing. Aroma is a mix of piny hops and roasted coffee/malt. It even feels fresh and spicy a little. Taste must be a little sweet but it is crushed by a medium-high amount of bitterness. Taste is nutty, roasty with a lot of hop oils flavors. These hop flavors don’t necessarily stand out, unfortunately, it’s a bit muddled to me in the end. Body is medium, carbonation too. Not bad at all but I’d tweak the hops schedule just a little bit for more flavor!

Couleur Brune avec un col blanc. Au nez, Malt, Caramel, Noix. En bouche les mêmes arômes qu’au nez avec une bonne amertume qui n’est pas déplaisante. Très bonne bière. La meilleure de cette microbrasserie que j’ai dégusté pour l’instant.

Sammy (9442) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Unique brown ale, fresh bottle from Veux-Tu. Pours mid-brown color with lots of retained head, and leaving a lace sheet.Happy and woody aroma. Lots of roast, tobacco finish, a little cascade hop. Sediment is citrus concentrated hops. This is somewhat of a black IPA reborn in a wood barreled ale.Lots going on.

In short: A very hoppy nutty brown ale, cranked-up the American way. Excellent.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed fresh one week after purchase.
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: Nose is roasted hazelnuts, fresh tobacco leafs, pecan pie, notes of hashish resin. Taste is rich nutty malts (hazelnuts and pecans swimming in caramel), a strong toasted sensation, peanut butter cookies, a generous hopping, a spicy-peppery edge to the hops. Bitterness sensation is medium and with a mild resinous character. A beer that could have been excellent but unfortunately the carbonation was excessive and made the beer less tasty than it really was. I loved that beer, and honestly I’m not sure I would be comfortable doing what I do to beer bottles I love if “bière” in french wasn’t a feminine word.

Cette bière se présente en un brun rougeâtre, avec une mousse couleur crème, qui reste longtemps en place, tout en s’accrochant aux parois du verre sous une apparence d’écume. Ça sent le grain rôti, à la limite brûlé, avec des vapeurs de sucre d’orge, se mêlant à des arômes boisés ou encore de sous-bois printanier. Au travers tout ça, des émanations mentholées sont détectées. Le liquide en bouche, avec sa texture veloutée, brouille un peu les cartes. C’est d’une amertume surprenante, entre l’agréable et l’inattendu. Des saveurs de résine et de noix crues diverses caressent le palais. (537-180213)

Eructoblaster (3336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Dark brown body with ruby glints and an average beige foamy/creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with nutty and woody hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries grainy and woody notes. Ends with a good bitter/grainy finish. Enjoyable.

BiereLuc (1122) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
Brune foncée avec des reflets rougeâtres. Nez de houblon et de grains rôtis qui rappellent le café. En bouche, une bonne amertume mène le bal avec des notes grillées (café, pain cuit) qui ajoutent à la rondeur. L’arrière-goût est caractérisé le houblon qui nous offre un rappel de quelques secondes.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Clearish chestnut ale wearing an irregular, rather heterogeneous light beige foam. Frank, hop forward nose combining vigorous citrus fruits and toasty as well as roasted grains venturing into both chocolate and coffee spheres. The roast and acidity manage to keep away from each other’s throats and no flavour clash occurs there between those two sensitive partners. The hop/roast alliance rather reorients toward earthy, nutty, leafy, tobacco flavour currents. Fairly straightforward, but efficient, packed with flavors and bright, clean aromas. Very strong, impactful bitterness though so it’s really a hophead brown ale, but not a gimmicky one where malt is completely neglected. Perhaps a bit weaker in the texture department if anywhere; its carbo nation feeling a bit forced and accentuating the acidity where it was not necessary.

Pours a dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is nutty, earthy hop and dark malts. Taste is rich with nutty hazelnut and dark roasted malts. Nice earthy hop bitterness.
