Dominus Vobiscum Double by Microbrasserie Charlevoix
This is a finely crafted beer from the Charlevoix region of Quebec.
Pouring a dark mahogany colour with a little head, it is a very “still” looking beer.
Brewed in Baie-St-Paul, Quebec I poured this beer cold and it gave off a highly sweet and grape-y aroma, similar t oa sugary grape soda. The mouthfeel was thicker and the flavour was big on raisins and malt.
As the beer warmed (as it should), the aroma quickly lost the sweet edge and more robust flavours started to shine through. A great berry, raisin, prune, fruit mix developed on both the aroma and flavour, creating a nicely tuned craft beer.
Don’t drink this one too cold and you’ll find yourself with a stellar Belgian-style dubbel beer from Quebec that isn’t overly sweet.
