COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Voil! A beer from chilly Quebec inspired by the "rauchbier" you find in Bamberg, Germany a dark beer made partly from smoked malt, aged slowly at low temperatures, and put in the bottle unfiltered, with a fine yeast sediment. All for one!

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2009 My Bottom Line:
This idiosyncratic Rauchbier thrills with its chocolatey, smokey lengths which carry along beechwood dryness, fruity angles and whispering greenery. Neither a Rauchbock, nor a Rauchschwarzbier, and not your typical smoked lager either, this is purity, personality and drinkability rolled into one.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Bobbing foam settles on top of the brownish blackness.
-Bready sustenance almost becomes caramelly underneath the rauchmalt.
-A green, herbal touch plays around, but it is hard to tell if it is from hops or Frontenac malt -if there is any in here.
-The big bubbles are quite peaceful and the body very healthy, making for a very agreeable mouthfeel.
-The colour would make you expect more roast character, but there is barely any.
-There is a lot of flavor in here, yet the entire experience is never intense.
-A few more 750s of this and I might very well consider this world-class. Looking forward to "testing" it again and again...
