500ml bottle served in a snifter around 10 degrees:
This is the first beer produced by the brewery Le Naufrageur I come upon and I have to give credit for the artwork I find very nice.
Dense brown pour with a certain opcacity topped by two fingers of hazel foam. The nose is roasted, sweet and appealing. The taste is very interesting pairing a nice blend of roasted malts and dark chocolate. A good contribution of the hops pushes up the flavours to a higher intensity. It finishes long, sweet and hoppy and the mouthfeel is dense and a bit oily. Pretty good product overall and a very satisfying brew you could pair with strong cheeses and grilled meats.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2014 Couleur brun chocolat, 6.75% d’alccool. Très belle bouteille. Servie dans un verre pinte anglaise. Au nez, le sucre, le caramel et des notes subtiles de cassis et de petits fruits rouges sont présentes. En bouche, le sucre et le goût de caramel écossais fait une belle explosion. Belle petite scotch ale originale, qui vaut certainement l’essai. Dans les produits que je vais racheter. Cheers! Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
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.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2009 18,99$ for a 64 oz container like you see on the picture, available at least at Peluso in Montreal. A refreshing brew with intense and well balanced flavors of fruits (dates, dry figs, others), subtle honey and other sweetness and a powerful, and delightful, hop kickdown, as I don’t remember having tasted in any beer, very present but not aggressively. These guys are obviously very serious when it comes to hops. I really like this beer. It somehow reminds me of a brown Leffe, with more subtilities and with a much more intense hop presence. A very respectable beer. Roli (406) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, sample size. I was not going to Le Naufrageur expecting to have some great belgian style beers, but this reddish ale had a great complexity and was really a easy to drink one. Roasted malts and caramel, with a typically belgian yeast. A great hybrid beer!

500ml bottle.. Caramel Brown beer with a regular head quite appealing to the eye. Aroma is caramel sweet and maybe some notes of roasted malt now i’m interested!!
at the first sip you can taste roasted caramelized malt with a small touch of sweetness. Not too effervescent in mouth which is what I expect from that kind of beer .... In overall, quite simple but very well done !! I give it the thumbs up! I really like ’’Le Naufrageur’’ Brewery in general dig for their Gems, definitely they’re worth looking for!!
