Draught at DDC. Interesting one, long smokey notes with some herbal weedy character, soft mouthfeel, touch of salt, gentle dry finish.Surprisingly enjoyable one, may not drink pints of it but spot on with its promising deScription. rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2005
Ambebrown hue, with a white head, floral hops, caramel malt, shy smoked malt, aroma follows through on a medium-bodied smoked palate, flowery hops, here with hamp, with a nice smoked flavor coming in second, with a earthy smoked malt accent, leading towards a dry hoppy finish. muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Pint at the brewpub in the company of Olivier_MTL and ClarkVV. Clear amber, smooth-creamy moderately lasting head...sedate smoky-herbal character in the nose, lightly sweet and malty with little hop presence, a bit floral...body is lightly sweet, creamy and luscious with hints of bitterness late, touch oily and the smokiness is very restrained throughout. Very much a session smoked, quite enjoyable but not really mindblowing as I’d hoped. ClarkVV (6961) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2005
On draught at DdC, 11/5/05 with Muzzlehatch and Olivier. Clear, but with just a slight waviness to the liquid, as most DdC draught beers have. Amber-beige, with no visible carbonation and a neatly retained, off-white colored head. Aroma of light toffee, soft yeast and a bit raisins and light date notes. Don’t get much, if any, smoke from the nose at this point. The flavor, however, brings smoke right away. Full and flavorful, but not your salty, bacon fat sort of smoke. Rather, a dry wood smoke with some nutty hemp and light yeast hanging on the edges. Quite fruity, with a chewy raisin-toffee flavor in the background. As it warms, I do pick up some soft, sweet smoke in the aroma. In the flavor, the palate adjusts quickly to the smoke, and supported by a truly smooth, fluid texture, the beer goes down easily and flavorfully. Light tanginess from the smoke, on the fnish, after warming, along with some earthy notes and more sweet toffee lingering. No alcohol apparency, moderately acidic and a gentle carbonation. Yes, can you believe it, DdC has done a session smoked beer. Quevillon (3196) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2015
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the Montreal brewpub on October 8, 2015. Dark amber, small head. Sweet smoky malt aroma, notes of green hemp. Raw smoky hemp taste, notes of dry citrus, nice bitterness. Its has been a long time since my last hemp ale and it was worth the wait!

Minutious smoke lifts from the earth. Alt-like caramel maltiness joins pomegranate fruitiness. Subtle, well-made, not too threatening.
Smoking earth and caramel dew. Tiny, prickly bubbles pinch the palate through the fruity, peachy maltiness. Faint wooden dryness appears in the end. This is so approachable and well-made, it could replace their regular hemp ale, Fumisterie.
Applying the first colours on your painting.
Black pour. Aroma is moderate smoke, porter notes. Chocolate, caramel, light roast and hops. Rich smoke flavor, well balanced.
