Bière du Boucanier-Dark Ale

This Dark Ale is the middle child in the Bières du Boucanier family. It comes in strange looking opaque white bottles and clocks in at a forceful 9%. This cloudy, reddish brown ale is fairly dark in colour. It's topped with a foam of off-white head. The Dark Ale features a surprisingly faint aroma, which is malty and has a dusting of dark fruit.

The Dark Ale is a smooth, malt forward Belgian brew. For a beer this strong, the flavour is mild. There are notes of raisin and plum, as well as some considerable yeastiness. The booze is very well hidden. This is very approachable stuff for a strong Belgian ale. However, I'd like to see a bit more flavour.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
