godofsky (274) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2011
750ml bottle from Le Gobelet. dition 2009. aged 1 year at cellar temperature. pours a beautiful dark caramel brown with the lovliest thick, creamy tanned head that leaves incredible lacing on the goblet. aroma is dominated by dark fruits, but has hints of chocolate and vanilla in there as well. in the mouth there is a lot of spices going on, and then some sweet caramel in the finish. a lingering flavour of intense spices prevails. mouthfeel is full bodied, with lots of carbonation. the alcohol is definately there, but doesnt disturb this beers drinkability. cant wait to try the Lupulus! i paired this one with a 5 year aged wine smoked cheddar and a Cendrillon goat cheese. a match made in heaven. nothing beats a good Quebec craft beer and Quebec artisanal cheese pairing!

750ml green bottle served around 15 degrees in a snifter: This seasonal ale pours a dense foggy black coat covered by a finger or so of fine tanned head. Retention is moderate and lacing properties are excellent. The complex nose delivers lots of spice with notes of cilantro, cinnamon, peppermint, paprika and another fresh herb I could not identify for sure. Very enjoyable. On the tongue, this fine brew gives out dark fruits, subtle notes of honey, caramel and a touch of smoke from the paprika. The mouthfeel is oily and very dense adding more enjoyable aspects to the tasting. Overall, this is a robust and complex winter ale that had a great spice backbone. It is full-bodied and very satisfying. Ive got a 2012 in the cellar and Im pretty sure you can let this one age a good 5 years. Excellent product!

If Jagermeister was made as a beer, the 2009 would be it. Great herbal/floral with orange, syrupy and a nice long finish. One of the best Ive tasted.

750mL bottle from LCBO. Powerful beer with a flavour and aftertaste that doesnt betray its alcohol. Nice but mild aroma. Pours really foamy, but settles into a nice amber head. Medium to full palate, perfectly carbonated for the style. Has a sweet, caramelly flavour - a little sweet for my personal taste, but a wonderful example of the style.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 Bire brune fonc aux reflets rubis, bien brouille dune multitudes de particules en suspension, bonne effervescence, et surmonte dun col bruntre pas tellement large et moyennement dense, mais bien persistant. Armes principalement malt, pain grill et beaucoup de caramel, avec galement beaucoup de fruits foncs bien mrs voire confit (raisin, cerise, prune/pruneau, datte) et un peu de noix de Grenoble. Aussi, on note galement quelques effluves de malt fume, de tourbe, de terre, de bois et de feuilles mortes, ainsi que dagrables armes lis la fermentation, de plaisantes notes alcoolises, de la banane bien mre et des phnols pics (poivre, clou de girofle, vanille). Enfin, dautres pices chaudes (piment de la Jamaque, muscade) semblent tre galement prsentes dans ce merveilleux nez dune profonde complexit et dune intensit trs leve. En bouche, ptillement modr sur la langue, avec onctuosit leve au palais, cest velout et soyeux, mais aussi liquoreux et thylique. Au got, le pain grill, le caramel et les fruits foncs dominent, avec des noix de Grenoble et un alcool significativement plus prsent quau nez mais qui est trs agrable et fort bien intgr. Aussi, lgres saveurs de terre, bois et feuille morte. On note galement une bonne dose de banane bien mre, voire flambe et caramlise, mais les pices se font quant eux plus subtils en bouche quau nez. Enfin, on dcle une pointe herbace en fin de bouche, peut-tre le houblon, ou une autre saveur lie aux phnols. Lamertume est minimale voire inexistante, la finale tant principalement alcoolise avec notes de banane et de caramel. Bire chaleureuse et plutt sucre (mais pas trop, en tout cas pour moi, elle est parfaite!), excellente intgration des diffrentes saveurs, complexit et intensit trs leve en bouche. Excellente bire! /// On dit que cette bire a un excellent potentiel de vieillissement, et jai laiss vieillir une bouteille plus de 3 ans. Wow! Explosion des saveurs maltes, intgration parfaite des saveurs lies la fermentation (banane, phnols pics), douceur incroyable, alcool qui nest plus du tout perceptible, ni au got, ni au palais, mais on perd la pointe herbace (qui venait donc du houblon). Et absolument aucune trace doxydation! Cette dgustation est jouissive et je monte donc encore un peu les notes dj excellentes de la bire. Zut!! Pourquoi nai-je laiss vieillir quune bouteille?

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
Beauty and personality so exquisite sadly and rarely come together with such unexceptionable results. Charlevoix has cooked up a heavyweight champion of a beer, conjuring up what Christmas in Belgium must taste like in a liquid format. This rouge madame hardly seems 10% ABV from a taste perspective but her muscles are flexed when it comes to machinating any thoughts worth thinking. After but several sips, flavours of figs, cherries, red wine, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar and subtle leather are gladly all I can perceive. At 15CND per bottle, this is well worth every grueling moment spent doing unimaginative work from which to earn those fifteen clams.

This beer is tremendous. Aroma is complex and delicious. Tons of baking spices, but none overpower or dominate the lightly sweet, delicious flavor. Thanks a million Dany.

claudeius (17) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2011 dition 2009 vieillie un an, dune couleur rubis ple et une mousse gnreuse, on dcle immdiatement les armes dpices, de fruits sauvage, le pain dpice et le caramel. Trs gnreuse en bouche avec une succession de saveurs allant du caramel pic aux fruits confits ... des touches de coriandre et de miel de fleurs sauvage... difficile cerner exactement! Sucre abondant et devenant de plus en plus prsent au fur et mesure que la bire se tempre, mais nenlevant toutefois rien la rondeur quasi-parfaite (selon mes gots) de cette petite merveille.
