COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stout au moka

L’Exploité est un stout au moka, robuste et sucré. C’est au XVIIIe siècle que le nom « stout » fait son entrée pour de bon dans l’univers de la bière. Il aurait été utilisé pour identifier les porters plus forts, plus goûteux et souvent plus secs. À cette époque, ces bières noires passablement sucrées et faibles en alcool étaient souvent consommées par les « porteurs » de colis desservant la gare et le port de Londres. C’était les débardeurs du temps. Exploités par les négociants et les importateurs, payés à la pièce, ils travaillaient fort et ne prenaient guère de pause pour manger, préférant boire rapidement une pinte ou deux de bière noire et sucrée et surtout, la moins chère, d’où son appellation bière des porteurs ou, en anglais, porter’s beer. C’est aussi à cette époque que le café et le cacao firent leur entrée en Angleterre et il n’était pas rare que les porteurs aient à en transporter de lourdes poches pour des commerçants qui faisaient fortune à transformer ces grains. Le premier café, de type arabica, provenait presque exclusivement de la ville portuaire de Moka, au Yémen, et avait des arômes subtils de chocolat. Pour reconnaître le travail de ces exploités qui ont transporté des milliers de poches de café sur leur dos courbé, nous en ajoutons à notre stout. Et comme dans certaines régions du monde le mot moka est associé à un mélange de saveurs de café et de chocolat, et que les porteurs ont sûrement dû en transporter nombre de poches aussi, nous ajoutons des fèves de cacao transformées ici même, à Saint-Hyacinthe. Cette bière contient aussi un peu de lactose. L’Exploité offre des notes suaves de torréfactions complexes allant des noix grillées au caramel brûlé, en passant par le café moka et le chocolat doux. L’amertume et la pointe d’alcool sont enrobées des sucres résiduels, ce qui équilibre et adoucit les saveurs en bouche.

L’Exploité is a mellow and sweet moka stout. The word “stout” first emerged during the 18th century, apparently used to differentiate stronger porters that were typically tastier and drier than usual. During this period, semi-sweet and low alcohol dark beers were often consumed by Londons dock workers, who were also known as “Porters.” Exploited by merchants and importers, paid per unit carried, Porters worked hard, barely stopping to have a full meal, preferring instead to drink a sweet, low alcohol beer, often the cheapest one, which came to be known “Porter’s beer”. Coffee and cocoa beans began appearing in England during this era. Porters frequently had to carry heavy bags of these products for merchants who were making a fortune processing these beans. The first coffee, an arabica variety, was primarily imported from the port city of Mocha in Yemen and had a subtle cocoa aroma. In tribute to these exploited porters who carried thousands of coffee bags on their broken backs, coffee was included in this beer. As in many parts of the world, the word mocha is associated with a flavor combination of coffee and chocolate, so we added some locally processed cocoa beans as well, since porters must have surely carried their share of these cocoa bean bags too. A bit of lactose and a touch of vanilla have also been added to complement these flavours. L’Exploité presents mellow and complex notes of torrefaction ranging from roasted nuts to burnt caramel, incorporating Mocha coffee and sweet dark chocolate. The low bitterness and alcohol bite are wrapped in the residual sugars, which balances and smoothes the flavors in your mouth.

L’Exploite was served as a Montreal style cream ale(meaning a Nitro pour) at the brewery. It has a great roasty chocolate/coffee totally mocha aroma. Incredibly smooth and satisfying stout - a double prize winner WBC gold and WBA gold. Which it totally deserved, this was a well-nigh spot on stout.
