Brown color and minimal head. Nutty aroma and taste. A perfect beer in it’s style. Tricker (413) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Bière brune, 5 % d’alcool, très bon goût en bouche. Aucun goût amer, très agréable. Une bonne petite bière d’avant souper ! jejosephine (5) - USA - AUG 20, 2010 does not count
Ma bière favorite de l’été. Belle couleur mais peu de mousse. caramel, cereal, amber, clear, minimal head, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, Separatix (16) - CANADA - MAY 19, 2007
Très appétissante bière rousse. mousse un peu faible.
Arômes de caramel et noix. En bouche, des saveurs douces de caramel et de noisettes. Petite amertume très fidèle au genre. La meilleure brown ale au Québec. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 Unfiltered first batchesLots of sediments punctuate the almost opaque brownish garnet hue. Large and slowly diminishing ivory head. Highly fruity nose contains a good dose of esters and an inherent spiciness that hints at oregano and mint though the very soft (perhaps too much so) hops. Lightest orange and lime leaves hints shows up toward the finish. Competent carbonation, rather low, but easy-going. Soft light-medium body, juicy and grapey. Lots of dunkel character, yet with spicy yeastiness. Original, if not mindblowing.

Bottle (341ml). Shared with tupalev, his bottle. Poured a cloudy deep walnut with a decent creamy off-white head. Rich and sweet aroma of nougat, chocolate toffee, very nutty and yeasty, light roast character. Taste is also quite sweet, very nutty, almost to the point of bitterness, there’s also some bitter chocolate and even a hint of dry hops in the quick finish - taste is quite bold and roastier than the aroma. Only average body, but not a problem, this is a drinker not a thinker - very sticky/syrupy mouthfeel, nicely carbonated - very refreshing brown ale, easy to drink, a malty treat.

Bouteille de 341 ml. Couleur noisette avec un moyen collet. Arome intéressant de malte de caramel, avec un soupson de whisky. Goût légé de malte rich, peu impossant de caramel et de noix. bedainedebiere (537) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2009
Recent ratings are lower than many previous ones. It is still a good beer, with a powerful roasted malt taste, distant notes of sweetness, and a hoppiness I first thought boring but that I came to appreciate its fruityness and persistant slighlty-tingling mouthfeel. j12601 (11162) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2011
On tap at Vice et Versa. Pours a clear brown with a thin white head. Nutty malt, toast. Nutty with some nice crisp malt notes. Clear and crisp with a nutty bitterness on the finish. Easy drinking. rederic (3335) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2006
Dark amber color, with a frothy beige head, toasty malty nose, caramelized malt and some toffeeish notes, with a sweet chocolate candy bar accent, hint of nuttiness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet caramel nalt character, nutty accent, brown sugar, toffee note, nutmeg spiciness, cookie dough, leading towards an earhty grainy malt finish.
