En ft la brasserie. Je suis heureux de dguster cette bire dont jignorais lexistence. Ambre et mousseuse, la jolie mousse tient vigoureusement mon verre. Un nez trs complexe et intressant o se mlent une dose importante de houblons rsineux, un alcool des carabes et une base malte des plus pertinentes. Wow! Crmeuse, rchauffe et rchauffante dun alcool brun mais jamais agressif, la bire est parfaitement houblonne et pleine de vie. Je sens ici de la noisette, des fleurs violettes, des cnes de houblon, une rsine enveloppante... Douce, sans arrire-got, savoureuse et facile boire. Un important coup de coeur!

Nez faible avec une robe fonce. En bouche, cest amertume lgre vs. saveurs malts. Pas grand chose dautre qui ressort, cest finalement assez moyen.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel.The color is a hazy amber with a thick head.This beer lands a real puch.The aroma is sweet and hoppy.The taste is of hops,malt,sweet candy,caramael and the 8% alcohol is very present.The aftertaste leaves a bitter taste of berries mixed with the hops. Nice finish.

Tap at Dieu Du Ciel - 03/03/12. (labelled as India Cream Ale Imperial) Pours a hazy amber colour with a decent near white head. Sweet sugars, candy floss, fruit on the nose. Sweet caramel flavour with background hops, a little desert style fruit in the mix. Medium to full in body, very creamy feel and finish. Not really my bag!

In short: A heavy and very resignous/bitter cream ale. Good
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dark amber body topped by a medium beige head with good retention
In long: Nose is moderately hoppy with resinous citrusy hops. The attack has a lot of sweetness and with the creamy fluffy mouthfeel you start with a crme caramel taste. Then the potent resinous bitterness take over with also a condensed citrus fruits juice flavor. The bitterness is of medium-high intensity and this makes it one of the most bitter nitro beer Ive ever had. Nothing aggressive, everything is smooth and with no sharp edges. However I thought the beer was a bit heavy with a big thick doughy mouthfeel. I love the beer so much at Dieu Du Ciel that I cant stop at just one, and I end up spending half my evening going from my table to the bathroom, oh man, Id give a kidney to have more control on my bladder.

Dark amber-copper color, with a creamy thick white head, light floral fruity, zesty lemon rind english hop nose with some faint earthy toasted, caramel malt notes, with a subtle toffee accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a smooth flowery earthy leafy, grassy, zesty citrusy hop character, with some lemon, grapefruit rind, faint lemon pie flavors, with a fruity toasty, caramel maltiness undertone, leading towards a mild zesty lemon, lime, leafy, grassy hop bittering finish.

Un verre Montral. De lazote travers un corps cuivr. Une mousse crmeuse, videment. Un bouquet fruit travers des malts doux. Une levure qui me rappelle les bires anglaises. Une bouche fruite. Des fruits du verger, essentiellement. Une prsence des houblons qui nest pas ngligeable. Un profil amrisant qui saccompagne dun alcool goteux. Une belle exprience sur les papilles. Un corps transform par les bulles. Une texture crmeuse souhait. Une finale qui propose de bonnes notes amres. Une autre ingnieuse proposition dun brasseur mrite.

Style et rsum: Imperial Cream Ale gazifi lazote.
Comment: Un verre de dgustation sur la rue Laurier.
Description: Une bire dore cuivre avec une mousse crmeuse par lutilisation de lazote. Le nez est bien fruit par lutilisation il me semble dune levure britannique, il y a un lger houblon sous ce malt. La bouche est aussi fruite, elle est ronde et amre. Les agrumes sont forts agrables. Il y a ce quil me semble un alcool amer.
Note: 6/10

Lubiere (13548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
A hazed dark amber ale with a thin creamy lacing Nitro mocha head. In aroma, a smooth grassy floral hops, with caramel malt and butterscotch. In mouth, an oily sweet nutty caramel with lingering metallic hops, butterscotch, and strawberry notes, a bit cloying. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 24 2012.

glennmastrange (2804) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Tap, nitro charged. Moderate malt and hop notes of roasted, caramel and cooked orange, light dough for the yeast, with hints of date, peach and dark honey. Head is average size, but full and cascading, creamy, off-white with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy orange/red. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately bittersweet. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy, with an almost flat carbonation and a lightly alcoholic, sticky/chewy and drying finish. This American Strong Ale is enjoyable on so many levels, the texture, the aroma, the flavor and just the sight of it. It screams "Drink me!"
