    Very good Irish ale with a hint of coffee and butterscotch. A very subtle nose and no after taste. A bit hard to find in Qu├ębec but it's worth the effort.

    This is my daily go to. It has a wonderful heavier taste with a surprisingly light after taste and feel. This one is made to be shared with friends. A great beer to introduce to your friends with poor taste in beer.

    One of my favorite ales. It is a rich full-bodied ale with about half the 'thickness' of Guinness. I don't recommend drinking this (or any other dark ale) directly from the bottle. But poured into a glass, you get a nice head that lasts most of the drink.

    One of my favorie irish beers. Easy to drink and full of flavor. I like mine topped off with a Guiness head to create a creamy frothy brew
