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. FORMERLY CALLED ’FUMÉE MASSIVE’

Very engaging aroma evokes childhood memories of water-soaked campfires. Opaque brown body is topped by a fine bubbled brown head that sticks to the sides of the glass in sheets. Never mind lace, this is just about full coverage. Huge smoke atop a quite sweet and chocolatey base beer - perhaps just a bit too sweet but that smoke flavour is very nice. A touch more bitterness might offer a pleasant contrast. Full bodied with gentle carbonation. This feels almost like a perfect digestif but that the carbonation awakens the palate and leaves me wanting something more. Fullbodied with expansive soft bubbled effervescence. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle.

Thanks to Aaron for sharing - sweet baby Jesus this beer smells fucking amazing! - hefty, meaty campfire smoke, roasted marshmallow, peat, whiskey, chocolate - a tiny bit of astringency keeps it out of 10 territory - flavor is semi-dry, nutty, with chocolate, bitterness, char - intensely smoky, but despite this, only a mild bit of astringency creeps in (the one downfall of a good smoked beer) - some peaty/whiskey notes - very dry finish, with long-lingering smoke - love it.

Very dark brown coloured body with a lighter amber brown tint near the top when held up to a light - with a thin light brown-head. Aroma of rubbing alcohol, smoked peat, smoked nuts and smoked salmon with a touch of Worcestershire sauce as well. Medium-bodied; Pungent smokey flavour with a lot of meaty and mushroomy earthiness with a little sweetness, a lot of roastiness and more alcohol and smokey flavour at the end - potent. Aftertaste is quite complex with the smoke, alcohol and roastiness coming strong afterwards, with the strongest in the smoke flavour. Overall, a nice smoked beer with a lot of complexity and a pungent flavour. Great if you like the style and a bit too much smoke if you like it a bit lighter. I sampled this 341 mL bottle purchased from Marche des Saveurs in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 04-December-2010 sampled at home a few hours before leaving for Montreal again, in Washington on 27-June-2011.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Thanks to Aaron for this 12oz bottle. Pours dark, dark chestnut brown with hints of ruby around the edges. The head is small and leaves a thin collar throughout. Aroma is really inviting with smoked malts mixing with caramel, peat and some hickory. It’s definitely got some molasses sweetness that balances out the smoke. The taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma as the smoke starts to take on a bitter character that’s not wholly unpleasant but it’s not as well integrated as the nose. There is a more prominent scotch/peat kick up front with the sweetness not really balancing things as well as I was hoping. The mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth with nice, soft carbonation. Te nose on this beer really had me excited but the taste didn’t live up to the expectations. I’m a big smoked beer fan and I like this one...would have been a fantastic beer if the taste matched the nose.

Pours dark black with off white head, thanks Aaron! Aroma has big notes of smoke, medicinal, bandaid notes, some slight chocolate, coffee, tons of campfire, smoke notes. Taste is really smoky and chocolate-y smore notes, with some slight sweet toffee, biscuit notes, finishing touch of smoke and dry notes. Really tasty for a super smoky beer.
