Flip top bottle thanks to craig. Pours out cola brown topped with a small head. nose is lots of sweetness corn roast and tons of sweetness. Taste is more of the heavy sweetness. Not that bad at all.

Boutip (5464) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with no carbonation. Aroma of sweet caramelized malt notes with some toffee and light warming alcohol notes. Taste is a mix of residual sugar. Caramelized malt with some toffee notes. Some notes of molasses and cookie can also be detected. Body is quite full with some warming alcohol that can be detected. Definitely the type of beer that needs to be share amongst many people and overall I would say this is a positive experiment.

My Bottom Line:
Dried dates, cooked fruit, molasses and soy-like edges wade within this massively sweet fireside treat.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is no foam atop the dark brown.
-This bottle needs to be shared with MANY people.
-The lack of carbonation increases the impression of heaviness.
-Alcohol warms up the finish, although surprisingly discreetly.
-This is not as complex as Xyauyu or other creations from Teo Musso in the same family, but it remains competently executed and deserves to be shared.
-This is NOT a malt liquor in the traditional, drink-under-a-bridge sense.

Sample (1 oz) @ Saint-Houblon.

Appearance: Deep clear copper with no head and nice legs.

Aroma: Strong malty presence, booze, toasted notes, oak, vanilla, raisins and toffee.

Taste: Huge malty presence here again with medium to heavy sweetness that is balance rather well by the boozy presence. Oak, vanilla, toffee, raisins and light acidity.

Palate: Full bodied. Still. Liquorous mouthfeel. Strong warming (but not burning) presence. Long lasting toffee flavor.

Overall: Quite tasty, but 1oz was more than enough for me. It should definitely not be classified as a "Malt liquor" and it’s certainly higher in abv than the listed 11.9 %. Good sipper.

Sample from a bottle at Saint Houblon. Flat copper pour, clear. Aroma is malty, a ton of barley candy, boozy, raisins, caramel. Taste is sweet, really malty, nice maltiness, warming alcohol finish. Palate is rich, full bodied.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 Bottle, birthday gift from dad. Aroma: nuts, cherry, oak, vanilla. App: amber-brown, minimal head not lasting. Taste and palate: full body, medium sweetness in mouth that lasts until the finish. We can?t really feel the alcohol going down. Overall: really enjoyed it. No idea if on style or not but it definitely seems well done.

Olfactif très alcoolisé avec notes de cerises au marasquin, de réglisse rouge, de crème brulée et de friandises sucrées. Grande puissance et bon maintient. Visuel brun et clair, aux reflets de cuivre et sans mousse. Au gustatif, l’alcool est en interaction constante avec les fruits sucrés et les déclinaisons de caramel. Les notes de sucre sont très complexes. On y retrouve du caramel, de la cassonade, des accents de mélasse, de la réglisse et des dattes. En bouche, elle est très réchauffante et présente une texture visqueuse. L’effervescence est nulle et l’équilibre penche totalement du coté du sucre et de l’alcool. Une vrai liqueur. Excellent digestif.
