La Swordfish est une brune hybride aux céréales d’une bière anglaise et à la levure belge, ce qui lui donne un goût à la fois malté et léger. Les goûts de caramel et de chocolat sont prédominants, alors qu’une touche d’épices reste en bouche.

Brune opaque avec belle petite mousse pas trop dense. Typée belge, petite amertume, bonne ale brune. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From my brother: pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, maltiness, light fruitiness. Taste is lightly sweet and quite in the fruity side. Not bad... almost a dubbel in its taste.

Bouteille 500ml. Couleur brun foncé presque opaque, mousse moka laissant un léger film. Arôme de malt torréfié, cassonade, cacao. Goût de malt caramélisé, légère amertume, levure, cacao. Carbonatation faible, corps moyen-faible.

Opaque dark brown color with faint visible activity. Slightly creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 10 to 15 minutes, making a very good amount of legs. Flavors of molasses, dark berries, walnuts, burnt maple syrup, cocoa, and herbal spices. Nice sweetness with a fresh dash of spices. More sugary with a little earthy bitterness. Slick light oily body with prickly carbonation. Strong finish with a pleasant tongue coat of sweet molasses and butterscotch, a perfect dose of grassy hops, and a roasted nuts feel. Overall excellent quality craft: delicious pleasant flavors, balanced and well intensified, filling and very fresh, strong while easy to drink. Although the body is too weak and thin.

Une bonne brune bien tourbeuse et juste assez amère... La mousse est dense et très tenace. On goûte le sucre brun, la levure et les épices et tout est bien agencé. Très bonne buvabilité.

Robe brune foncée assez claire avec colde mousse beige et assez dense. Dentelle epaisse et huileuse. Arômes de levures belges, noisettes, malt grillé et mielleux, épices à dessert. En bouche, c’est un mélange un peu spécial de saveurs sucrées et amères. Levures belges et épices sucrées qui rencontrent du malt grillé et des noisettes. Surtout orienté vers le malt anglais, minéral et terreux. Finale plus herbacée et caramélisé et où les houblons ressortent un peu plus. Texture moyenne-légère, corps moyen également. Bière brune qui sort des sentiers battus mais qui ne tombe pas dans ma palette.

Consommé avec Pascal. Belle couleur brune avec une belle mouse. Goût de caramel, de chocolat et d’épices. Bonne amertume qui ne dure pas longtemps.Une bonne bière.

How: Sample at Festival Brassicole de la Mauricie.

>>> A flavorful but a bit heavy Amber Ale with spicy Belgian yeast. Odd, but not bad at all.

+ A large beige head with good retention tops a slightly hazy brown beer
+ The combination of the Belgian yeast with earthy/mineral notes, roasted malts, chocolate and toffee is a bit odd for a rather low abv dark Belgian Ale but it works well for me
+ There’s a fun mild lingering spiciness in the aftertaste
It certainly feel a bit heavy for a less than 7% abv Belgian Ale
It’s fun to try once, but it doesn’t have a profile that would make me think about buying it again

Flavors: Spicy Belgian yest, roasted malts, toffee, earthy/mineral notes, chocolate

Sample from a bottle. Dark pour with creamy tan foam. Aroma of dark chocolate, very powdery, cocoa, light coffee, light peppery notes, light fruit but definitely not much Belgian going on. Taste is roasty, chocolate, light pear, just a touch of something doughy, slightly strange flavor. Palate is med-full bodied with good carbonation. Not your average Belgian ale, but drinkable.

Jannick13 (141) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with particles in suspension and one finger of moka coloured head. Aroma of roasted malts, spices, caramel. Taste is more of the same; along with tofee as well as a nice balance between the sweetness of the belgian yeast and a an agreable bitterness.
