From Bierkraft. At dinner, after futsal match, with agnus burger. Reminds a brown ale, with toffee and nuts. Pretty dense and oily body.Hops tend more to english profile than american but label says is an american IPA.

Just because the label says "American style IPA" does not mean that's what the Quebequoise bottled! This tastes and feels like a North American Strong Ale ala Stone Arrogant Bastard. As such, it's incredibly good, and the reviews here, particularly from Alstroms (usually right on!) are particularly bad.

Love the Dieu Du Ciel and most Quebec's craft beers.

A: Pours a thunderous, stormy DARK brown body that sports a rising thick creamy 4 finger head. The head slowly fades to a thick puffy rim and film and laces amply. A strange, devilish orange glows from its body.

S: The aroma a abrupt and abundent, pent up raisen, and church wood, with incense and thick hop aromas, lots of pine, citrus, and juicy, chewy hops. Pronounced varnishy, malty sweet aroma, reminiscent of a Arrogant Bastard and certain DIPAs and heavy Imperial IPAs. The bright aromatic hops keep coming.

T: Follows the smell like a buzz saw with chewy, complex hop flavors. Combining with sweet, candied, dark malt flavors, crystal malt, malty sweetness and thickness.Juicy hops with sticky pine. Feels like it's an imperial.

F: Imperial mouth feel, thick, good carbonation in a < 7% body.

O: Brilliant see-saw of sweet candied malt to hoppy, piney, twisty bitters. A great beer - completely misunderstood on BA.
Compare in blind test with Arrogant Bastard.

Bottle to pint glass. Looks like muddy water, very small head. Aroma is brown bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, slight yeast. Taste is fruity, apricot, date. Also brown sugar and French toast. Yum. Slight vinegar like aftertaste, but not too bad. Carbonation is weak. Don’t know that I would classify this as an American Style IPA; seems closer to a Belgian, but lighter on the strong yeast. Very tasty though."

Dark notes abound, this one comes in with orange and brown, making a dullard auburn appearance. Clarity sucks, carbonation does not yield a head deeper than 1/10". Aroma doesn't impart hops.

Taste reveals some red and brown malt type of flavors and roasting. Lacks hops. Seems earthy/dirty. Terribly priced as well. Toffee.

Just a disappointment on every level (except the artwork).

Notched 3 and 8. Pours a very cloudy brown with a high level of suspended matter. Below normal head volume, lacing and retention.

Nice nose of caramel, toasted malt (somewhat grainy), sweet ripe fruit esters (stone fruit, grape) and very little hop influence.

Heavy light body that is smooth. Normal carbonation with a bit of mid-palate effervescence and a fair burst in the finish.

The flavor profile is less than average for the style - not bad, but note quite good either. It has a slight caramel note throughout and bitterness is rather mild. An English Bitter hop flavor is present, but rather muted. The finish is a lingering English Bitter hop flavor that seems a bit off. I won't buy this again.

pours a murky ruby mahogany with very little head. nose; centennial hops, toffee, & caramel. taste; caramel malt, centennial hops, sugar, fig & light pine resin. very low carbonation & medium mouthfeel. this is not a typical ipa - with the dark fruit and sugar notes here (caramel & fig are prominent), it's more like a hoppy dubbel. this could also definitely use more carbonation. still, very enjoyable.
