Patiemment au froid depuis plus de 14 mois, nous l’avons laissé atteindre sa maturité en laissant le temps aux saveurs de fraterniser et de former un ensemble puissamment harmonieux. D’une personnalité hybride bière/tawny/cognac, la S offre une palette de saveurs illimitées; fruits confits, cerises, dattes, caramels, le tout présenté avec équilibre et chaleur. Une gâterie à partager avec l’être cher.

Note from the brewer: this is not made to be an American Strong Ale or anything else. It’s made to be a kind of barley-based port-like brew with very little carbonation, just enough to protect it against oxydation.

garthicus (2591) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 4, 2012
My 2000th rating! Kindly shared by HogTownHarry and drank with him. Appearance: Pitch black, brown leather tan head. Aroma: Malty, lots of coffee and figs, raisins, plums, leather and wood. Flavour: Initially quite malty but soon making way to figs and raisins, cherry, quite tangy and a little sour, alcohol is present but certainly not overpowering, red wine and port notes with a definite wood flavour, very warming, glad to have shared this as I reckon a bottle would take an age to drink. A hint of molasses in the finish with a lingering cherry finish. Thanks to Harry for sharing, Paul for suggesting it and both of them for all of their generosity along with the rest of the Toronto crew. x x x

500ml swing-top bottle shared with garthicus for his 2000th rating. Thin looking ruby-black with an average diminishing head. Smells fruity, oily, roasty, with hints of fruitcake, molasses and alcohol. Taste follows, but sweeter. Slightly thin body, a bit boozy, quite sticky .... I liked it, but tgis would never be a "pint please!" brew for me.

robinvboyer (2876) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2012
500ml bottle. Very dark brown pour, small white head. Interesting aroma, quite smoky, roasted malt, cognac, dark dark boozy fruit, fresh ground pepper, nuts, and caramel. Carb is low but expected, and enjoyable, slick mouthfeel. The malt really comes forward with the pepper, and dark fruit in the end. The finish is medium bittersweet, with a solid roasted maltiness, and touches of smoke. Incredibly complex beer, make sure to share this one.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with an orange tint. Dark beige head disappears after a few seconds. Smells of burnt caramel. Taste is very fruity, cherries, figs, dates, very little bitterness. Alcohol is felt very clearly as it goes down. Body is average to strong, texture is very sticky. Excellent beer, yet I’d recommend sharing the bottle, it gets quite heavy after a while.

AlainG (1035) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
Beau liquide de couleur cola, sans effervescence. Des odeurs de chinotto, d’herbes, de sucre et de bonbon à la bergamote se rendent joyeusement aux narines. Goût sucré, d’herbes et de fruits quelconques, accompagné de notes alcoolisées. Un point de moins pour une étiquette pompeuse. (131-101211)

Fred82 (2093) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Sample at the Laval "Chevalier de Colomb" meeting that they disguised as a Beer Festival.
Appearance : Clear dark amber with small head.
Aroma : Light chocolate, light brown sugar. Liquor-y sweetness. Nice malt. Very rich.
Taste : Roasted malt with sweet honey and light chocolate. Some wood. Warm and sweet finish.
Overall : Quite rich and complex. Felt a bit young and sweet at the time but the bottled samples I’ve had since were better. Rather well balanced. Nice beer.
