L'Alchimiste Bock de Joliette

L'Alchimiste Bock de Joliette is a strong beer from L'Alchimiste Micro Brasserie, out of Joliette, Quebec. The label features a portrait of L'Honorable Barthélemy Joliette, with no further explanation.  The beer clocks in at 6.1% and is sold in 341mL bottles.

The Bock has a hazy orange-amber colour, topped with a short lived cream head. Its aroma is malty and gently spiced. The flavour is malt dominated with a whisper of clove. Some faint hop bitterness brings up the rear.

This is a pretty enjoyable bock--not as flavourful as some of its Teutonic cousins, but certainly not timid. A fine beer to warm you up on a cool night.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
