look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

12 oz brown bottle with a foiled top, a best before date on the back label.

Appearance: Foamy off white head that takes a long while to subside to a sticky lace. Cloudy yet radiant yellowish golden colour shows that this is a pale brew.

Smell: Ripe sugary nectarines, a powdery yeast and a light phenolic clove and medicinal mix in the aroma. Alcoholic esters with a touch of solvent linger in the back of the nose.

Taste: Peppery clove spiciness with a warming alcohol right behind it. Estery with a hint of solvent-like character in the high level of alcohol. Malt lays down some sweetness with a thick drying pale graininess, fruity flavours of mango and pear flash on the taste buds. Bitterness from the hops melds with the thick powdery yeast and bring the mouth to a slightly dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy with a medium to high carbonation.

Drinkability & Notes: One of my favourite Belgian style pale strong ales, a bit over the top for some people and one that I respect by sipping through the night.

4.75/5  rDev +10%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Presentation: "La Fin Du Monde", translates to "The End of the World." The label is comprised of a god like light, or god's eye, that illuminates Quebec with a top view of the terrain. Very ominous.

Appearance: Pale/straw with a nation of bubbles that can be seen rushing to the surface. When poured a huge froth is produced that leaves behind a patchy white lace that is maintained by the rushing fizz. Nice head retention that sticks slightly to the glass.

Smell: Cider, pepper, flowers and light fruits are all present in the nose.

Taste: This brew is very smooth and sweet up-front with loads of malt mouth-feel. A warming sensation begins in the back of the tongue and turns into a spicy, almost pepper, flavour. This flavour is the 9% alcohol which cleverly camouflages itself until consumed. A very light hop flavour is left behind, with warming esters in the mouth.

Notes: Truly a potent and delicious brew with many hard to achieve complexities. Unlike other brews of this strength, this one is extremely drinkable due to its balance of alcohol and dextrins. Outstanding.

Serving type: bottle
