Ode aux malts fumés. Sa spirale maltée sucrée, où s’entrecroisent caramel, tire d’érable et soupçon de mélasse, est fidèlement soutenue par l’apport de la fumée du bois d’hêtre. FORMERLY CALLED ’FUMÉE MASSIVE’

cfrancis (3373) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2012
Pours a dark brown almost black with a dark brown frothy head. Aroma is heavily smoked campfire with a small amount of smoked deli meats. Taste is big smoke with the oilyness of deli meat. Man I have troubles with this style.

mabel (9160) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2012
[4141-20111124] 341mL bottle. Charred smoky roast malt aroma. Black brown body with a quick creamy light tan head. Quite charred roasted bread grain flavour has a light fish scale note. Full body. Odd roasty notes, smokiness brings out interesting malt characteristics. (7/3/6/3/13) 3.2

blankboy (7637) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Nov. 2011. Pours a very dark brown, quite bubbly, with a small frothy diminishing beige head. Nice aroma, super smoky along with sweet roasted malt, bbq’ed meat, burnt wood and a hint of coffee. Flavour of roasted malt, lots of smoke (though less then in the aroma), some chocolate and a touch of coffee. The alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Great stuff, I loved it.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2011
341 ml bottle. Pours a deep black with a thin dark head. Smells of dry wood. Tastes of roasted malt, wood, brown sugar, caramel and a hint of milk chocolate.A nice smokey, roasted and, do I also taste...maple finish? Body is VERY thick and oily, each gulp feels like a satisfying mouthful. Carbonation is just perfect. Definitely a classic!

roasty, earthy, smoke, resin, Massive is the key word as in undoublty the most smokey beer ever. It’s like drinking by the fireplace. Nice on a cold winter night

jercraigs (10302) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2011
2011-11-24. Nice black body with a small creamy tan head. Smokey aroma, modes malt note hint at a malty richness below, but the smoke dominates. Flavour is less smokey than expected from the aroma, cocoa and chocolate like accents, mild dark malt core. Smokey roasty bitterness lingers in the finish. 6+ Smooth average plus to medium palate. 3+ Pretty solid, and not intensely smokey but just enough to put me off. Smoke fans will enjoy it much more. Bottle from Dépanneur Tout-Près, Lévis

kevinsenn (2173) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
341mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours opaque black with no head. Smell is strong whiskey and oak. Taste is very smoky... not much else to say about that. Feels pretty thin for such a dark beer at 8.6% ABV. Decent, though I’m not in love with it.

toffsbury (118) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
Aroma is 92% oak, 8% antiseptic. Pours very very dark, with no head to speak of. Quite attractive black and red colour. Taste is mildly bitter, big on smoke. It’s like a smoked sausage minus the sausage. I don’t taste much else besides smoke, really. It’s not bad. Decent body, fairly smooth. Can definitely taste the alcohol. No hops to mask it, and the malt doesn’t do much in that regard. Bottle courtesey of kevinsenn.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2011
Very engaging aroma evokes childhood memories of water-soaked campfires. Opaque brown body is topped by a fine bubbled brown head that sticks to the sides of the glass in sheets. Never mind lace, this is just about full coverage. Huge smoke atop a quite sweet and chocolatey base beer - perhaps just a bit too sweet but that smoke flavour is very nice. A touch more bitterness might offer a pleasant contrast. Full bodied with gentle carbonation. This feels almost like a perfect digestif but that the carbonation awakens the palate and leaves me wanting something more. Fullbodied with expansive soft bubbled effervescence. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle.
