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.

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.

500 ml bottle. Pours a deep chestnut brown with a large but short-lived mocha head. Roasty, sweet chocolate, and smoke on the nose. Taste is roasty malts, dry and bitter coffee. Long bitter finish. I would have put this into the elite 4.0+ category with a little bit less dryness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bouteille 500ml. De couleur brune et voilée. Nez de malt moyennement rôti et légèrement sucré, moyen de houblon herbeux et légèrement résineux, léger de caramel terreux et de café avec des notes de noix et des traces de chocolat. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Goût de noix, de malt rôti doux, légèrement sucré et terreux lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de biscuit avec des notes de chocolat et quelques traces de caramel. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux, moyennement résineux et aux notes terreuses jusqu’en finale, où l’on retrouve également un léger goût de café avec de faibles notes épicées (poivre doux). Post-goût longue et un peu sec, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux et résineux avec un léger goût rôti aux notes terreuses ainsi qu’avec des notes de chocolat et quelques traces de café.

Bottle (500 ml). Brown with a medium persistent brown head and good lacing. Aroma if of pine/spruce, hazelnut, roasted malt, caramel and slight spices. Taste is moderately sweet and bitter with hazelnut, pine/spruce, caramel and slight spices again. Medium body. Moderately dry. Very good balance between sweetness and bitterness. I’m always afraid to drink an hazelnut Brown Ale since the accident (ie drinking the awful Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown), but this one is pretty good!

pours hazy brown with a very nice light beige head, excellent retention and lacing. piney, sprucey, spicy and nutty malts, dry caramel malts, herbal-grassy, leafy green and citrus, earty, peppery, grainy. soft carbonation, medium body, nice grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. hoppy browns are not my favs - not that refreshing of a brew, but very nicely done!

500mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours a mostly clear brownish red, with a very small beige head. The aroma is fantastic, a solid Brown Ale base with some noticeable hop character bursting from the glass, and definitely American hop character. Flavour is also quite pleasing but the hop aspects are far more integrated into the whole show rather than taking centre stage like in the aroma. Again, an awesome Brown Ale base, with some piney hops in the finish perfectly balanced by mildly rich malty sweetness, and bitterness in the background. Feels fuller on the palate and the carbonation is mild. This wasn’t cheap, but I would definitely buy it again. One of the best Brown Ales/Quebecois beers I’ve had in a while.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear, yet very dark reddish brown with a resilient beige head. Smells like hazelnut, milk chocolate, coffee, roast. Flavor is very coffee-ish, mocha, hazelnut, roasted grains and a nice, subtle touch of chocolate. Finish is slightly fruity, with a good coffee bitterness. Not too pushy, which goes perfectly with the style. Lingering hazelnut and coffee notes. Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Medium carbonation, bordering on weak. Superb offering.

Bouteille 500ml. Couleur acajou foncé avec des reflets rougeâtres, mousse couleur café au lait aérienne laissant une dentelle mousseuse. Arôme de malt grillé, beaucoup de houblon résineux, fumée légère, caramel. Goût de houblon résineux, pain grillé, noisette, caramel, amertume en fin de bouche et café en arrière-goût. Carbonation moyenne, corps moyen-dense, un peu huileuse et collante.
