Ma note parle delle-mme je crois... La version que je dguste actuellement est celle de 2015 et elle est divine. Jaime bien cette bire frache mais un an dge, cest aussi succulent. Pruneaux, chocolat, caramel, dattes et pices composent le dlicieux palais. La finale est faite de malts dlicieux mais que je ne saurais distinguer. Merci pour ce nectar.

Dopplebocks in general are billed as liquid bread for German monks, but what I want to know, who are these Bavarian monks who sit around sipping beer like this in place of bread? On a quest to answer this question, I drove an hour from my home on the U.S. side of the Quebec border to Brossard in order to locate this brewery, which I did, in a non-descript industrial park. Once inside, I did not find any beer-drinking monks, although did find a friendly staffer who was happy to sell me a bunch of 750-ml corked and caged bottles to bring back home for my own early-winter beer tasting. Tonights sampling is their dopplebock, which is exquisite; I actually prefer this to any of the dopplebocks from Germany that Ive had. It pours a translucent deep amber-caramel color which is gorgeous when held up to the light with a small foamy head, but rapidly settles with no lacing. The aroma is intriguing. Theres no one scent that stands out, but with multiple whiffs I detect all of the following, in no particular order: cherries, dates, figs, raisins, molasses, caramelized sugar, nuts (almond and hazelnut), candied blood orange, and fresh-baked anadama bread. The flavor is all of the above, along with vanilla, chocolate, brandy, rum, and pipe tobacco. It is sweet, yet not cloyingly so, balanced by the subdued boozy warmness that follows. It is a full-bodied beer with a soft, silky mouthfeel. This is a monk-worthy meal in a bottle.

RhetoricalAns (904) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2016
Hazed brown pour, couple fingers of fizzy dense tan head, good retention, leaves no lace. Nice mix in the aroma, lots of dark fruit, brad, toffee, chocolate. Some more spice comes through int he flavour. held back a bit by some excess alcohol heat. Sweet throughout though a bit more balanced at the end.

tmoreau (4088) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to a snifter displaying a deep amber hue, with a presentable layer of tan foam, and ribbons of lacing. The nose was Eisbock-like scent to the maltiness, with some toastiness, ginger bread-like character, artificial fruit, and spice. Medium+ bodied, with moderate carbonation, the taste offered caramel sweetness, some warmth, with a sherry-like nature.

Bierdimpfe (612) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Veiled copper color with a strong amount of activity. Frothy light orange 2 finger head, lasting around 5 to 10 minutes, with average legs. Aromas and flavors of caramel, toffee, molasses, dark fruits, citrus, esters, oak, nuts, cocoa, floral and herbal spices. Super flavorful and delicious with a strong thick sugary and light earthy feel, with notes of bread and wood. Smooth creamy light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with a vinous sugary, molassy, and fruity tongue coat with lingering yeasty spices, and a smoky wood barrel aged feel. Overall an excellent craft offering complex and powerful flavors with a pleasant sugary vinous feel while remaining fresh. Excellent warming appetizer similar in taste to a Port wine. Although the strong spices may not please to everyone.
