Beer of the Night - October 30, 2006

Here is the newest addition to the long series of the Beer of the Night saga.

Tonight's selection is the Quebecois beer "La Moisan" by Quebec based microbrewery La Barberie.
What's interesting about this beer is that this is a special beer that is only sold in one location. This beer is sold only in a small grocery store in Old Quebec City called Épicerie J.A Moisan, which is the oldest grocery that is still in operation in North America.

La Barberie makes beer similar to the beer of Unibroue. La Moisan beer is very similar to just about any beer you would buy from Unibroue.

The only main difference is the bottle that is used for this beer, it is a 500 milliliter bottle. The taste I've noticed from this beer is a very sweet taste that you would expect from any Unibroue beer. The beer has a slight similarity in taste to coffee I've noticed, while the smell is a very fruity smell.

The cost is approximately $4.00 Canadian, it is only available at the J.A Moisan grocery store in Quebec City, Quebec. If you buy 3, it is only $9.99, a very good deal for a local microbrew like this.

Price: 2.5/5, could be better, but for being a local brew, it's not bad of a deal. (looking back, I was cheap, that's a great beer for any awesome beer!)
Taste: 4.5/5, hints of a sweet coffee-like taste, pretty thick in taste
Body: 3/5, very copper-like colour, not much foam
Flavour: 4/5, very inviting if you are a fan of the Belgian/Quebec microbrewery style of beer
Type of Beer: Strong Copper Ale on Lees
Alcohol Content: 6.5% alcohol per volume
