Black with deep red reflections. Nice caf au lait head that doesnt last long however. A nose of roasted sesame oil and freshly ground coffee. A taste of roasted malt which slides to a subtle bitterness. Maybe a bit thin but well done. A nice spring beer.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2004
Opaque black, tan head of medium size. Aroma first of roasted malt, then some strange metallic smell which soon left room for hoppy berries. The flavour is coffeeish bitter, though some very nice malty nice to balance it. Somewhat thin, though this gives it a nice lightness. Overall, quite a well balanced beer. Enjoyable. Bottle.

La Trappe Fromage : Dark brown color beer with tiny head. Aroma that vary between roasted malt and spice. Caramelized taste with a low bitterness...not the best from Brasseur RJ but still at the top.

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2004
Dark and opaque, the beer is inviting at first sight. This beer is very close to a porter for it has a very coffeeish taste. The burned of smoked effect is there however and brings a very powerful presence in the finish.

660ml bottle. Very dark ruby color. Nice foamy full lasting brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of fruits, roasted malt hops and molasses. Some smoke. Smooth flavourful body with caramel and roasted malts. Medium mouth feel. Very slight bitterness on the finish. Goes very well with a local dish called tourtire.
