A golden amber lager with a thin lacing creamy off white head. A light smokey bacon aroma with fusel notes. In mouth, a light smoked lager with light bacon over caramel malt, not bad. On tap at DDC 12th Anniversary, Sept. 11 2010. Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at Bar Volo Dieu Du Ciel Night. Brewed in August. Peachy colour with some grewy highlights. Lacey, one-quarter inch of white head. Attractive smoke aroma. Fuller mouthfeel. Bang on the style, moderate sweetness behind smokey taste, refreshing. Goes great with smoked meat sandwich.

On tap at the Blind Tiger. Pours a clear orange with a medium sized beige head. Big smoke, wonderful and smooth. Long campfire notes. Lightly sweet malt and huge long slow smoke, smooth with light burnt rubber tones. Long lingering smoke on the finish. Nicely done. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2010
2010-09-XX. Hazy dark amber with a large foamy white head. aroma is very smokey, with subtle wood and campfire accents but smoke is too strong for me. Flavour is similarly smokey, muted bitterness and underlying malt are eclipsed by the pervasive smoke. Smooth average plus palate. Ugh. Well made but very much not to my taste. On tap

My Bottom Line:

Unidirectional smoke graces this Rauchbier from aroma to lengthy finish, generously daubing spicy hops with salty cereal crackers.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A film of foam flirts with the light amber haze.
-This felt leaner than their Charbonnière.
-The hop finish was not very bitter, but the eternal smoke might be responsible for concealing some of the alpha apport.
-This is not really complex, but it is still a beautifully quenching Rauchbier for lovers of the style.
On tap at the Chambly festival.
Cask. Pale amber pour. The aroma has a little bit of soft rauch malt and some soft noble hopping. A lingering smokiness but it’s quite lovely. Fresh and quite authentic.

[3377-20100919] Tap. Smokey bacon cigarette aroma. Hazy, dark red body with a long-lasting off-white creamy head. Flavour is more of the same, with tons of bitter cigar smoked grains and mild bandaid throughout. Medium body. Interesting, not wonderful.

Very well done. Not sure I’ve had a smoked beer I like so much. Malty with light barbecue flavour. Some caramelized malt - nice to see a smoke beer that didn’t burn it off completely. Light sweet finish, soft carbonation. Tap at brewpub. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Draft at blind tiger with Andy, Paul, and Tom. Pours a super deep hazy amber body with no head, no lacing. Aroma is light smoked meats and very faint burnt rubber. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of meat, smoked malts, pepper, and light plastic. Good smoked. TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
