Corne du Diable

Corne du Diable is an impetuous little IPA from those beer geniuses from Montreal, Brasserie Dieu du Ciel. I had a 341mL bottle at Northern Belle, the nearest bar to my apartment. The Devil's Horn sports a dapper Lucifer on the label. It's a ruddy and hazy ale that pours with a thin dusting of off-white head and contains 6.5% alcohol.

It has very strong aromatics--sweet malty notes, caramel, and floral-piney hops. The flavour kicks off with a malty top note with nice caramel and then eases into a restrained and relaxed bitterness with some agreeable forest elements.

Not assertive or powerful, this beer prefers to be subtle, balanced, and beautifully crafted. It's a swell ale and you should try it.

Rating: 9.0 out of 10.
