Que dire de ce produit.....Simplement WOW !!!! !!!! !!!! !!!! !!! belle bière brune foncée avec des reflets rouges avec une mousse crémeuse couleur moka, cette Brown Ale Américaine me fait « Tripper » car elle a le côté d’une puissante IPA Américaine mélangé aux arômes rôties et torréfiés d’une Brown Ale. On pourrait presque considérer ça comme une Brown IPA !!! Très bonne effervescence, au nez les arômes sont le café, les noisettes, malt rôties, céréales grillées et bien sûr le nez est envahi d’houblons Américains. La bouche offre les mêmes saveurs mais plus prononcées suivi d’une amertume tranchante digne de ses 90 IBU ! PROOST encore une fois Pit Caribou !!!!!

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 My Bottom Line:

Earthy hop resins, flower petals and hazelnut caramel gel from aroma to aftertaste in this gorgeous American-style Brown Ale.



Further Personal Perceptions:

-A tenacious head of foam covers the deep mahogany-hued brown.

-Malts also offer roasted touches. as well as some rye-like angles (Cararye?).

-Hops share citrusy tips before adding more earthiness.

-Body is not thin, not heavy. A beautifully rendered mouthfeel.

-Drinkability is quite high for a 7% brew.

-There are so few world-class Brown Ales out there that this one always comes as a surprise. A superbly tasty one at that!

500mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours a mostly clear brownish red, with a very small beige head. The aroma is fantastic, a solid Brown Ale base with some noticeable hop character bursting from the glass, and definitely American hop character. Flavour is also quite pleasing but the hop aspects are far more integrated into the whole show rather than taking centre stage like in the aroma. Again, an awesome Brown Ale base, with some piney hops in the finish perfectly balanced by mildly rich malty sweetness, and bitterness in the background. Feels fuller on the palate and the carbonation is mild. This wasn’t cheap, but I would definitely buy it again. One of the best Brown Ales/Quebecois beers I’ve had in a while.

Taking Brown Ales to a new place! The nose is powerful, featuring a touch of booze, roasted malt and hoppiness. An amazing rich and complex taste profile -- Deep roasted caramel malt, dark chocolate, a heavy undercurrent of hops with hints of dark berries and roasted almonds. And all well blended and smooth. Way beyond your standard Brown Ale!
