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% dalccool. Trs 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 prsentes. En bouche, le sucre et le got de caramel cossais fait une belle explosion. Belle petite scotch ale originale, qui vaut certainement lessai. Dans les produits que je vais racheter. Cheers!

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 dont 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.

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 im 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 theyre worth looking for!!

Brun fonc avec des teintes rougetres. Elle dgage des odeurs de mlasse, de figues et/ou de dattes sches et de levure. elle gote le malt, le pain grill, jy dtecte une lgre note surette, ainsi quune pice quelconque qui rappelle un peu le Chinotto, qui laisse une trs douce amertume en bouche.

Dun brun fonc, la fois clair et aux reflets rouges, la Swordfish a tout de la classique brown ale anglaise. Au service le liquuide est bien fonc et offre une belle mouse de bulles assez grosses qui dispat plutt rapidement. Elle est apptissante mais on perssent son manque de corps. Au nez, de jolies eflluves de caramel pourraient la faire passer pour une quadruple lors dune dgustation laveugle. En bouche le manque de corps se fait sentir mais nen fait pas pour autant une bire insignifiante puisque les armes de chocolat et dpices sont loin de ltre. Le bouquet sestompe toutefois rapidement, de mme que lamertume en fin de bouche. Bref, une bonne bire dappritif que jachterai srement nouveau, mais qui na rien dune bire dexception.

Biere que je mtais reserver pour un apres-ski au campe. La premiere apparence consiste une bire brune que je qualifierais dunecouleur brune pas trop fonce ni trop pale et dun beau collet de broue. Jaime le melange hybride de la bire qui lui confrere beaucoup de richesses et de gout. La finale est agreable, longue en bouche et lammertume est prsente juste assez afin de ne pas gacher la bire.

light brown in the glass. light to medium bodied. prominent cereal and hay with hints of toffee. definitely a full-flavoured brown
