godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2011
750ml bottle from Le Gobelet. Édition 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 doesn’t disturb this beer’s drinkability. can’t 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!
