Pours medium brown with enormous amount of lasting white head. Sweet malts wafting. Initial taste of malt and peat, much better balanced as it warmed. Very drinkable. Carbonation is appropriate, and a good mouthfeel. Very good smoked beer, with smoke not overwhelming. Thanks Boutip.

Boutip (6432) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light smoked malt with some dry caramel malt with light and subtle notes of residual sugar. Taste is also dominated by great caramel malt with light smoked malt notes and some light residual sugar notes. Body is lighter then expected with good carbonation. Easily drinkable without too much complexity and really not as much smoked malt as expected.

Bouteille de 500ml. Bière cuivrée avec une mousse beige. Le nez a bel et bien des effluves d’iode, de fumée, de caramel. La bouche est agréable, bine constituée, les caramel côtoie la fumée en tout élégance. Finale quelque peu sucrée.

Une bouteille de 50 cl. Une robe brune. Un simple anneau de mousse. Un nez qui annonce des choses douces (caramel, notes grillées, fruits) à travers des envolés de fumée de bois et de feuilles sèches. Un goût qui s’articule autour d’une douceur de caramel bien contenue par une fumée jamais agressante et par des flaveurs de petits fruits foncés. En bouche, un corps léger avec un pétillement peu prononcé et une texture un peu mince. Une finale peu tonitruante sur des notes de caramel légèrement épicé et emboucané. Peu complexe mais facile à boire et sans doute parfait pour les gens qui ont peur du style.

500ml bottle, dark copper color, with a big frothy tan head, mild smokey, biscuity, caramel, toasted malty nose, with some meaty smoked bacon, smoked ham, beechwood, bran cereal muffin accents, with some light toffee, dried fruit notes in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a good biscuity, caramelized, bready, toasted, light smoked maltines character, with some grainy cereal, bran muffin, faint dried fruity raisiny, buttery toffeeness flavours, leading towards a fruity drried rainsin, toasty maltiness finish. A bit weak in his smoky character!

Solid aroma of Weyerman smoked malt with caramel and berries. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium beige head. Very good flavor of Weyerman smoked malt, caramel and berries. The body is medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. Good stuff!

Tried at Snallygaster Fest in D.C. Amber color with white head.. Smoke aroma. Flavor is some caramel and a lot of smoke flavor. Tastes like bacon.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012
A healthy beige head mostly stays above the clear copper with ruby tinges. Woohoo, more smokey than anticipated. There’s plenty of beechwood smoke in there, bringing forth woodsy, tobacco, leafy and earthy notes, but in a rather candied Munich malt profile where nuttiness has a vegetal lactone connotation and vanilla hints. From the nose, it smells like it’s going to be sweet. Yet in mouth, while its bock nature introduces a malt forward and hop timid nature, the generous smoke provides a nice counterbalance and in a way, so does the beer’s leanliness. It is fairly thin for a beer of this stature and this makes it seem less in your face caramelly sweet. Plenty of bready and cerealic nuances to the maltiness. Tasty product that can be regarded as an easy drinker, as a captivating food matcher and as a rather complex beverage on its own.
