COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch 666 beer, a red ale blended with sour ale aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels with coffee and currants Tel que son nom l’indique, le brassin 666 est le 666e brassin issu du système de brassage de l’avenue Willow. Collaboration entre tous les brasseurs du TDD, il s’agit d’une red ale assemblée avec 200 litres de Hérisson, maturée en barrique de cabernet sauvignon, le tout suivi d’une macération de 100 kilos de cassis et d’un kilo de café de La petite brûlerie, en cuve d’inox. Le résultat : une éclatante bière rubis au nez convaincant de cassis et de torréfaction dont la bouche, véritable danse contemporaine pour les papilles, est l’expression technique et esthétique de l’adresse combinée des brasseurs du TDD.

My Bottom Line:
Coffee beans top black currants in this mildly tart and creative brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the brownish red.
-The flavors are harmonious and my palate appreciates them. Yet, the blend is so unusual, it needs some getting used to early on.
-Acidity levels are lower than expected.
-Fruitiness is generous throughout. This has a lot of potential with a game tartare.
-This one had my eyebrows moving quite a bit.

On tap at the Siboire.

JulienHuxley (5853) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. Deep bright red pour with pinkish white head. Aroma is very fruity, recognizable TDD microflora, quite lactic, light leathery brett notes, tons of coffee, enormous aroma. Taste is quite fruity, very winey, with rich coffee flavor, tart. Palate is med bodied, good carbonation, dry. Easy drinking for something so loaded with eclectic ingredients, very well assembled.
