Boutip (6567) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle: Poured a dark copper color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of caramelized malt with dry grainy whiskey notes is pretty interesting. Taste is also dominated by caramelized notes with light toffee notes discernable with some dry grainy whiskey notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and light warming alcohol notes. Well brewed thought barrel-aging takes a sizeable amount of the flavour profile with this one.

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours dark brown with a small beige wisp. Aroma is peat, and smoke from the barrel, caramel malts. Taste is a small caramel, oak, smoke and a hint of peat. Well done but I would like the barrel treatment just to be a hair more.

No apparent hops.flavours of, butterscotch, caramel, nuts, smoke, raisin,and a leathery aftertaste. Yummy delicious complexity with a low carbonation and a big full body.
