Merci à Boutip pour la bouteille! Au nez : sucre/ cannelle / alcool. Bière forte, donc pour amateurs du style! Je ne suis pas un de ceux là, donc je ne peux avoir une opinion neutre sur cete bière.

Selon mes critères, elle contient relativement bien son alcool mais ne présente aucun trait réellement intéressant. En d’autres mots : je ne suis pas en amour. Et y a-t-il un critère plus important que celui-ci?

Metalchopz (2837) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
2012 edition. Pours a copper colour with ruby highlights, lots of particles floating all over, a frothy beige head and great retention for a brew with such a high alcohol content. 3mm coats the brew and seems to stay there. Big molasses aromas with dark fruits (plum, dates). The alcohol is very well-hidden with a wet mouthfeel and no burning, nor warming at all. Starts on a rusty hop taste, but this seems to balance itself. Roasted and caramel malts, spices, hints of anise and beautiful hops. A very nice winter warmer as it breathes.

rodenbach99 (3775) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Bouteille de type biberon de 330ml de la version 2012. Meilleure avant le 21 septembre 2015. Une bière brune foncée avec une mousse beige pâle. Un nez sucré de fruits séchés comme les dates, raisins et figues. La levure apporte des épices à ces fruits. Une bouche tout aussi sucrée que le nez. La texture est ronde et sirupeuse. Une vrai bière d’hiver, réconfortante et chaleureuse.

mathieuc (2655) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
Pours a deep brown with a medium beige head that leaves impressive lacing. Aroma is fruity and sweet with some molasse and spices. Taste follows suit with a medium level of sweetness but it is balanced out by some appreciated bitterness and some light alcohol notes. Flavors of chocolate, caramel and raisins. Tastes a bit like a quad but without the body. Speaking of which, body feels medium. Texture is smooth but carbonation is a touch too high for my liking. A good belgian!

KyotoLefty (8492) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle from ABC. black with a tall, fine head. Nose of chocolate, licorice, vegetables, spice, coffee. Sweet, fruity flavor, chocolate, cocoa, nice tangy citrus. Rather thin and weak compared to the General, though. soft crisp bubbles are nice, but this beer could be much richer and better.

TimE (4547) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2013
Cloudy brown color, light brown head. Lactic, a bit of milk chocolate, but fairly one dimensional nose. Full bodied, chocolate, malty, really boring and goes no where fast. Kinda like playing chopsticks on the piano. Boring.

Boutip (5468) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle: Poured a dark color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of caramelized malt with dry figs and raisins notes with light fruity ester. Taste is also dominated by light fruity ester with some caramelized notes with some dry fruits notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This is a well-balanced effort without too much residual sugar showing up.

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours a deep amber to black in color with a small off white head. In the aroma, a light spice and dry caramel. In the taste, a mix of fig and raisin juice. Quite quad like, with notes of Christmas spices. A spice bite, but mellow, and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry spice in the aftertaste.
