Bouteille. Couleur ambre fonce, mousse gnreuse et compacte, voile. Arme dautolyse, dalcool, de houblons, et de terre. Got terreux, minral, amertume prsente en finale. Corps plein, mais savonneux, effervescence moyenne faible. Ok next.

Beardbeerman (341) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
500ml bottle served around 12 degrees in a snifter glass: Pours an opaque brown robe showing a caramel spread color if held to the light. Airy tanned foam develops overhead with a good retention capability and large spotted lacing. The nose is subtle, sweet and inviting with notes of caramel, dattes and coriander. On the tongue, youre first hit by a fruity/floral hoppy attack delivering an aggressive bitterness that rams to the back of the palate. The brew finishes dry with very little aftertaste. It feels full-bodied but also very acidic. The malts seem to get lost with all that grassy hop forefront so you end wondering if youre drinking a weird IPA or a strong ale. Overall this dark ale disappointed me in a sense because the list of ingredients shows the same ones (and in the same order) than their Christmas Ale. This lack of originality shows in the taste since the hoppy bitterness is quite similar and therefore makes you wonder if youre dealing with a diluted version of the Christmas Ale. It is very bitter and not so satisfying.

on tap at brewpub. as per previous ratings, no defect in this brew - probably a bottling process problem. cloudy medium dark brown with a decent light beige head, little retention, no lacing. caramel malts, some yeast and spices, fruitiness, some light grassiness. average carbonation, light body - some oilyness, short finish. not very good brew but clearly better than bottled version.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Bouteille 500 ml. 7.5%. Couleur brune opaque, mousse ABONDANTE, crmeuse beige. Arme de malt, herbes. En bouche, un peu sre, malt, levure, fruits. Pas top...brasserie douteuse.

belandzio (20) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
Au dpart, cela sannonait bien. Belle couleur brune, opaque, brumeuse, avec un joli col. Nez pas si mal, un peu fruit, mais un petit quelque chose trange... Cest en y gotant que cela se gte. Elle est cre, acide et avec un got pas agrable du tout. Dommage pour cette brasserie artisanale du coin de Kamouraska qui exprimente des bires plus naturelles.

Huge rocky head. Gushy. Deep amber pour underneath the never-ending head. Lots of dried fruit, fruit leather and plums. Figgy and slight spicy as well. Rye and a touch of yeastiness as well. A little bit of light metallic flavour that isnt all that good. Starts to take on a funky sourness as it starts to warm up - its not the worst thing Ive had from Breughel - but thats faint praise.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 2, 2010
Very lively beer when poured. Beware of the overflow. Rich aroma of berries and syrup. Cloudy brown appearance with a big frothy white head. Looks promising but unfortunately is a let down. Sour flavour. Not much body. Metallic texture. Sour ale.

Wow there guys brewsome awful beers! This one is a sour, funk filled mess. There Are some decent fruit notes but the odd lactic sourness is overpowering. And it finishes with a very strong and very unpleasant bitterness. Wow this is a train wreck!

Bottle shared by my friends Erin and Chris- Thanks to the both of you! A deep chestnut liquid poured from the bottle. A dense fluffy cap of beige froth sat atop. The aroma was malty,funky fruit which was not all that unpleasant. Also in the nose, some caramel paired up with an off-putting lactic milky note. Tasted of sweet dark pit fruits alongside caramel malts, with an earthy sour funk and lactose. Sweet, drawn out sour finish. Not nearly as bad as some others have mentioned, so I suspect we got a "good" bottle.
