Aphrodisiaque
Country: Canada
Style: Cocoa and Vanilla Stout
Alcohol by Volume: 6.5%
Format: 24 x 341ml bottles
Availability: Irregular
Tasting Notes: Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

Peche MortelPéché Mortel
Country: Canada
Style: Coffee-infused Russian Imperial Stout
Alcohol by Volume: 9.5%
Format: 24 x 341ml bottles
Availability: Irregular
Tasting Notes: Péché Mortel (French for "Mortal Sin") is an intensely black and dense beer with very pronounced roasted flavours. Fair trade coffee is infused during the brewing process, intensifying the bitterness of the beer and giving it a powerful coffee taste. Péché Mortel is brewed to be savoured; we invite you to drink it in moderation.

This stout style, high in alcohol and bitterness in order to favour preservation, was historically brewed to support the long and arduous voyage necessary to export the beer from England to Russia. The word Imperial comes from the fact that the beer was specially brewed for the Russian tsar’s court.

This new style, born on the west coast of North America, is characterized by stronger and hoppier beers. The result is a red ale expressing caramel flavours coming from the malt, sharp bitterness and powerful hop aromas, thanks to dry hopping.

Style: Quadrupel
Alcohol by Volume: 10.5%
Format: 24 x 341ml bottles

Tasting Notes: Strong brown ale inspired by the beer brewed by Belgian Trappist monks. Very little bitterness, this beer has intense malty and sweet flavours, mixed with the taste of chocolate and caramel. It presents complex red fruit and spice flavours due to the type of yeast that is used during the brewing process. This beer is at its best only after it has aged for six months.  
The Rigor Mortis are complex beers designed and
 brewed with patience and care in the tradition of the great Belgian Abbey beers.


Equiunoxe du PrintempsÉquinoxe du Printemps
Country: Canada
Style: Maple Scotch Ale
Alcohol by Volume: 9.5%
Format: 24 x 341ml bottles
Availability: Rare - seasonal (autumn)
Tasting Notes: Équinoxe du Printemps (French for "spring equinox") is the quintessential marriage of two great traditions: beer brewing in Scotland, and maple syrup production in Quebec. At the first draught, the mouth is overcome by woody, malty flavours, sustained by a discrete touch of sweetness. The aftertaste brings about the flavours of maple, which are sufficiently present to be appreciated, but never overwhelming the
                                                  typical flavours of a Scotch Ale.


Solstice d hiver
Solstice d’Hiver
Country: Canada
Style: Barley Wine
Alcohol by Volume: 9.8%
Format: 24 x 341ml bottles
Availability: Rare - Seasonal (autumn)
Tasting Notes: This noble winter beer is brown in colour with flaming red highlights. Its taste is delicately sweet and liquor-like with a hint of burnt caramel coming from the malt and a prolonged boiling time. It is a very bitter beer with aromas of hops and alcohol, and flavours reminiscent of red fruit brought by the English-type yeast we use to ferment it. The aftertaste is accentuated by the wonderful flavour of hops.

Solstice d’Hiver is brewed only once a year in October, and is then aged for 4 to 5 months before being sold. This aging process is necessary to achieve an ideal equilibrium between the sharp bitterness and the other flavours in the beer.

Country: Canada
Style: Rauchbier (smoked ale)
Alcohol by Volume: 5%
Format: 24 x 341ml bottles
Availability: Rare
Tasting Notes: Brewed in the tradition of the smoked ales of Bamberg (Germany), this amber ale has delicate malty and smoky aromas. It is full-bodied, malty and slightly sweet to the taste, and the smoky flavour is fully expressed with every draught. An original and distinctive beer, La Charbonnière is a house specialty. It is very much appreciated by beer enthusiasts who happily discover a type of beer that 
                                      is rarely available on the market.


Blanche du ParadisBlanche du Paradis
Country: Canada
Style: Belgian-style wheat beer
Alcohol by Volume: 5%
Format: 24 x 341ml bottles
Availability: Rare
Tasting Notes: Blanche du Paradis is a Belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander seeds and Curaçao orange peels, the spices traditionally found in this classic style. Unfiltered and containing almost as much raw wheat as malted barley, it presents a veil of yeast and proteins giving this style its "Blanche" name. Round and light at the same time, it exhales fresh baked bread aromas, and reveals spices and citrus flavours,
accompanied by subtle notes of acidity coming from the wheat.


This beer won the prize for highest distinction in the 2002 Popular Beer Contest for the category "Belgian style" during the Mondial de la Bière in Montréal.
