COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I didn’t know this was a Smoked Ale until I cracked open the bottle, smelled it and drank it. Definitely smokey; has that campfire smell to it. Figs, prunes, nuts, and caramel join the smoke scent. The pour is a dark murky brown color with a ultra thin head on top with most of it fading away. The flavors are, again, smokey, with bacon, wood, maple, a little dark fruit, and caramel. Interesting. And pretty good too.

tom10101 (2726) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle 341 ml. Dark brown with a medium long lasting light brown head and fair lacing. Nose of smoke, wood and slight notes of chocolate. Flavor is sweet with smoked malt, caramel and slight notes of chocolate. Smooth but long lasting smoked aftertaste. Alcohol really well hidden. A very good Smoked, but not in the same ballpark as Schlenkerla in term of complexity, balance and drinkability.

BenH (2259) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle at craig’s. Dark brown with red highlights and a tan head. Smoke dominates the aroma, predicably, quite a nice smoke, not kippers, like a burning log. Taste is similar, little toffee. Bitter. Not bad

cfrancis (2331) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2012
Pours a dark brown almost black with a dark brown frothy head. Aroma is heavily smoked campfire with a small amount of smoked deli meats. Taste is big smoke with the oilyness of deli meat. Man I have troubles with this style.

[4141-20111124] 341mL bottle. Charred smoky roast malt aroma. Black brown body with a quick creamy light tan head. Quite charred roasted bread grain flavour has a light fish scale note. Full body. Odd roasty notes, smokiness brings out interesting malt characteristics. (7/3/6/3/13) 3.2

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Nov. 2011. Pours a very dark brown, quite bubbly, with a small frothy diminishing beige head. Nice aroma, super smoky along with sweet roasted malt, bbq’ed meat, burnt wood and a hint of coffee. Flavour of roasted malt, lots of smoke (though less then in the aroma), some chocolate and a touch of coffee. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Great stuff, I loved it.
