UPDATED: JUN 7, 2016 on tap on the premises. unclear medium dark brown, red tint, with a very creamy dark beige, creamy lacing. roasted burnt caramel maltiness, peppery chocolate, hint of smoke, umamied mushroom sauce, bbq sauce, piney and spicy hops, spicy coffee, ashes. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily; warming woodsy-spicy finish. no sayzoin character, really - just a basic spiciness overlooked by plain pine notes. o-k.

yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2016
À l’îsle de Garde en compagnie de Ju-Lo. Un bière presque noire sur laquelle flotte une mousse crémeuse et d’un blanc cassé. Jolies dentelles sur le verre. Une importante torréfaction sèche au nez ainsi qu’un houblon vert qui laisse présager d’une certaine amertume à venir. Je respire également une pointe d’acidité. Le liquide est bien mince et offre un spectre de saveur étroit. Ormis la torréfaction, je remarque une base de Saison qui ne dément pas. On ignore si l’amertume qu’on y déceler provient des grains grillés ou du houblonnage car celui-ci est discret. La pointe d’acidité se manifeste en mi palais. Je ne sait pas trop ce que je bois en fait et je finis par me lasser.

biirusaikou (2705) - - MAR 8, 2015
Draught at brewpub. Another interesting creation, rich roasted malt, cocoa beans, mild pine hops, earthy finish. Not so hop-forward for an ipa, maybe a tad too boozy too.

rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
En fût sur place. Une robe noire avec une mousse beige. Un nez passablement rôti avec du chocolat, du café et des houblons. Une bouche agréable, rôti aussi, une touche d’alcool et une amertume marquée.

4.1
Ambro206 (362) - ITALY - AUG 31, 2014
Birra ottimamente bilanciata. Senza difetti. Bella schiuma color caramello. Aromi intensi di cioccolato e caffé adeguatamente accompagnati da una luppolatura importante ma mai invadente. Carbonazione perfetta.
