Lubiere (13049) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2008
A nice brown ale with a thick moka head. Caramel and chocolate in aroma. In mouth, a good coffee, chocolate and burned toasts, nice and roasted, with light acidic points. For a style I find boring, this is quite interesting. Bieropholie imports.
