Had this on tap at Les 3 Brasseur's Brewpub on Rue St. Catherine in montreal.
A - Very dark and a thick, very white head
S - Chocolate and burnt notes
T - Tastes like chocolate and coffee with a hint of banana. New flavors popped as i kept drinking it. Notes of vanilla, ginger, allspice, and molasses came in. Had it with fried shrimp and it was a very good paring.
M - Very thick and smooth with low carbonation
D - Had two and both went down very well.

Also this is not an american brown ale. It tastes like a Belgian dark ale

Had at the Mondial la Biere in Montreal. Review taken from notes.

A-dark amber body and a tan head

S-barn yard like, wierd

T-malt front, very grassy,


D-This brewery makes some good beers but this just isn't one of them. The smell was very off putting. After that, it was very hard to really get a good sense of taste. Maybe a less assertive aroma hop would make this better.

Light brown color and clear. Modest head, but no lace.

The aroma is quite light. Slight cocoa smell.

Tastes like a bitter piece of dark chocolate, could easily pass as a porter except that the body is thin. Decent carbonation. Here is an easy-to-drink brown ale. I consider this to be the best of 3 Brasseurs' offerings on this date.

Les 3 Brasseurs on St Denis here in Montréal

So the look of it: Dark, with medium carbonation and about a finger of white head

The smell of it. Coffee and chocolate mostly

The taste of it: Coffee with a touch of chocolate and some caramel.

So overall would I recommend it ? For sure ! You wanna go to a bar that have nice well made beer. his is the one to go here in Montreal. You should definitely give it a try before the blanche or the blonde. This one have more flavour, more character, more enjoyable. I will drink it again on my first choice.

Out of the maturing tank...
Very dark brown color with a two finger thick head with good retention and leaving some laces.
Aroma with notes of coffee and chocolate and herbal hops, it becomes more present after warming up.
Nice toasty flavor with notes of lungo coffee, chocolate, some papaya, roasted malts, prunes and cola. Dry aftertaste with a light bitterness and its residual taste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation of tiny bubbles.
Let it warm up and becomes a tasty Brune but also targeted to have a good drinkability. Don't expect a Belgian Brune. I found this one and the Itaim Pale Ale their best offerings. And the one I had straight from the tank was definitely better than the other served downstairs at Brazilian temperature (very cold).
