Chaman (Imperial Pale Ale) – Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel


Seasonal Release

From Montreal Quebec’s Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel comes their “Chaman” an Imperial Pale Ale.  The beer pours a copper colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of malts, caramel, fruits and a grassy floral hops.  The flavour is of malts, caramel, citrus, dark fruits, pine and some bitterness.  The alcohol content of this beer is 9%.  This is a very different flavoured Pale Ale compared to your average.  Being from Quebec the fruitiness was not a surprise for me but a nice addition.  I would like to thank Bradly for bringing this beer to BC when he was here on Holiday from Ontario.  Glad I could show you around the breweries here.

Commercial Description:  Chaman is a dry-hopped strong beer with strong amber hues and dominating hop flavours and tastes. It is however well balanced through the presence of a combination of malts, and alcohol is present is not overwhelming. Thus, it is a very complex and bitter beer, but always well balanced.
Chaman is brewed only once a year, and is sold in May until stocks last.
