Ode aux malts fumés. Sa spirale maltée sucrée, où s’entrecroisent caramel, tire d’érable et soupçon de mélasse, est fidèlement soutenue par l’apport de la fumée du bois d’hêtre. FORMERLY CALLED ’FUMÉE MASSIVE’

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Bottle at dinner in Montreal. Thin dark brown pour with low khaki head. Great aroma blend of dark chocolate, meat, and soy sauce. Flavor is sweet, savory, and smoky. Dark chocolate and sausage blending really well together. Finish is a bit earthy with soft smoky finish. Really good!

It was a strong, thick 8.6% smokey experience, not quite SCHLENKERLA or SPEZIAL smokey, but rauchy/peaty nonetheless. The smoke was also dominant in the flavor, along with a bit of a medicinal phenolic note, but nothing too detracting. The full bodied flavor rounded out as it was sipped down.

Nouvelle version de la "Fumée Massive" du même brasseur. Liquide très noir, petite effervescence qui ne dure pas mais qui laisse un mince col de mousse couleur cassonade. Les fruits confits et la fumée remontent du verre. En bouche, grains torréfiés, fruits foncés confits et fumée, sur une finale en chocolat. Savoureuse, mais se fondant tranquillement en une chute aqueuse, l’alcool est perceptible, quoique difficilement, au nez. Mais malgré ces impairs, elle est excellente, surtout en la couplant avec quelque hors-d’oeuvre.

Bouteille de 341ml, robe d’un brun assez foncé et opaque, arôme de sucre et de fumée, goût de cassonade, de tir st-Catherine et de fumée!

Je pars avec un préjugé défavorable envers les bières fumées. Celle-ci est d’un noir opaque, surmontée par une mousse brune qui se résorbe rapidement en laissant une dentelle obligée. Par contre, en secouant le verre, elle reprend vie et c’est beau à voir. Ça sent la fumée et ce, de façon assez prononcée, qui n’est pas sans rappeler le poisson fumé; saumon, doré, hareng, etc., ou encore, quelque chose d’assaisonné au barbecue. En bouche, le goût de fumée est moins prononcé, mais constitue néanmoins l’attribut principal du produit. J’en suis néanmoins satisfait. Ce n’est pas très costaud, malgré son degré d’alcool. Peut-être que, tranquillement, je m’habitue à ce goût, ou encore, ce produit est bien réussi? (441-051112)

12oz Bottle, purchased at Depanneur Peluso - Montreal, QC. Inviting coy nose that draws you in with a wisp of campfire and smoked fish and then turns ever so slightly acrid and sharp. Flavor, unfortunately, reflects the acrid turn more than the alluring wisps of refined birch smoke, with a strong, ashy, and lightly burnt plastic edge to the smoke flavor. Interesting that the flavor, not the intensity, is the overwhelming issue here. Usually, it’s the lack of intensity that makes smoked beers mediocre for me. Instead, this carries a sharp, charred log and artificial flavor that sends the beer in a decidedly sharp and tough to work through direction. Too bad too, because I think the structure otherwise is very well set up.

Aroma: Smoke, smoke, smoke all over with a tiny bit of caramel Appearance: Pitch black with small head, average lasting and a bit of lacing. Taste: Also very smoky but warm and round because of it’s 8.6% alcohol. We can find a bit of caramel also but smoke is killing all other flavors. It’s name is telling everything. Massive smoke. Not my favorite.

Bottle. Deep brown-black pour with a thin tan head. The aroma is a little bit sweet and sticky. A roasted dark malt character along with a touch of sweet smokiness and some rich bittersweet chocolate character. There is a heavy earthy bitterness along with the roast and smoke. Great balance of soft roast and smoke with a soft cocoaish sweetness through the middle of the palate. Oily and rich and very tasty. I’m a fan.

341mL bottle, pours a dark brown / black with a thick, foamy tan head. Aroma is very massively smoky (duh), with some ashtray notes and a bit of bonfire. Flavour is intensely smoky as well, with lots of ashtray, firepit and cigarette butt. Extremely intense carbonation with destroys the drinkability even more, though the ABV is well-concealed. I suppose if you like this style, you’ll enjoy this, but this isn’t a success in my books.
