A-Pours a nice dark brown. Faint beige head.
S-Faint caramel and dark malt.
T&M-Dark malt with light toffee, and a café mocha flavor that lingers into the aftertaste. There is also a nice, even slightly dry finish with faint hops. Lighter-bodied and favors the sweeter side. I would enjoy more with a tiny bit more hops.
O-A decent little beer...picked it up at LeClerc, but there seems to be a buyer that goes for an "exotic" brew from time to time, and this is the flavor of the quarter. I'm becoming a big fan of this style, but this is not the greatest of examples. Since there is not a lot of selection in this style, I'm apt to buy it again.

Black from afar, but a hold to the light reveals clearer ruby at the edges. A head the color and consistency of latte foam.
Figgy. Up front, it's all fruit. Bitter and raisiny, like reduced wine. Earthy hop character, a touch of cocoa powder and toasted wheat bread. Very balanced in the finish, with just a touch of raisiny tang on the sides of the tongue. Clean and light. Brown sugar finish. Reminds of a Belgian Dubbel, almost.
Soft body, cotton balls, light. Moderate, prickly carbonation. Clears the palate after each sip, a street sweeper washing it away. Very easy to drink.
Not incredibly complex, but very drinkable. Would be good at a soccer match on a hot Brazilian day.
Serving type: on-tap
