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.

Wow! Une digne représentante du style, dans la lignée des classiques tel la Calumet! Ça prends une place en permanence dans mon frigo!

Une bière dont le goût fumée est très explosif. Un gout de caramel et de malt grillé.

341ml bottle. Deep brown in colour with a thin but long lasting tan head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of smoke, roasted malts, campfire. The flavour is lightly smoked, some sweetness, chocolate and a bit of caramel, toasted and roasted malts. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, smoky with a sweetness at the end.

bunget (785) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2016
341ml bottle. Dark chocolate head, small light brown head with average to poor retention. Intense and light aroma of smoked prunes, peat, leather, molasses, black currant jam, good tobacco. Taste of hot smoked prunes, burned caramel, leather and a touch of ash. Oily and a tad flat. Sweet but still great.

Bottle shared. Quite smokey with a wood edge and salty notes, maple syrup, burnt caramel, tobacco, a little boozy on the finish. A bit too woody for me, but may get interesting with rich food pairing.

341ml bottle. Black with a thin foamy tan head. Flavors are charred wood, smoked meat, olives, roasted cereals, molasses and chocolate with fruity and ashy notes. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, creamy texture. While smokey tones are dominating aroma-wise, sweet and rich malty flavors are in the forefront in mouth.

Premièrement, je dois dénoncer la fausse représentation; cette bière n’est fumée d’AUCUNE façon. Zéro boucane. RIEN! Le feu est mort. Les cendres sont parties au vent. Et maintenant que le sarcasme est exhumé de mon corps, parlons des vraies choses. Cette bière est surprenante. Elle offre le même fumé que le bacon. Il y a quelque chose de sublime là-dedans. Comment un produit aussi végé (de l’eau, des céréales...) peut-il être aussi «viandeux»? Et l’alcool – qui plafonne presque à 9% – a de quoi soutenir les saveurs qui pourraient, autrement, être unidimensionnelles. C’est boisé et très malté (un peu caramel, TRÈS fumé). Sérieusement, je trouve que c’est excellent dans le style.

341 ml bottle. Very dark brown color with small red reflections. Average brown head. smell is of course smoke, wood, treacle and roasted malts. the taste is very smoky!! a bit ticky, this feels like an imperial stout. tobacco, maple wood, caramelised malts and a good bitter aftertaste. the malts might be too present for it’s own good I think. a bit less malts with that same woody smoke flavor would’ve been awesome I think. Really good but could get improved. Cheers

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Noire quasi opaque avec un mince col de mousse brune. Odeur de caramel, mélasse et de fumée que j’associe généralement au poisson fumé. Au goût c’est la fumée qui domine, mais pas à l’exclusions des autres saveurs ( malt, caramel, mélasse .. érable, pas sûr) et on sent les vapeurs d’alcool remonter un brin en fin de bouche. Le tout est assez agréable et je recommande en accompagnement à des mets (charcuteries, fromages .. ) très goûteux, une excellente rauchbier.
