LA CORRIVEAU

Bilboquet Micro-Brass., St-Hyacinthe, PQ

La Corriveau is a very popular murderous tale in French Canadian folklore. Marie Corriveau is said to have violently killed up to 7 of her husbands, accused of being a witch, and sentenced to hang at the top of the gallows in an iron cage. This oatmeal stout promises to be at least as dark as the soul of Madame Corriveau. For more on the folklore of La Corriveau read this.

  • 5.5% ABV
  • Pours a deep, dark, black colour, “darker’n a black steer’s tookus on a moonless prairie night” -the dude. Black, like a cowboy takes his coffee.
  • Big, voluptuous, tan coloured head. That’s not going anywhere soon.
  • There is a big earthy, chocolate and espresso aromas.
  • Smoky cigar flavour, also huge amounts of black coffee and a touch of date sweetness. Roasted oats also comes through strong on the aftertaste.
  • Creamy mouthfeel, that totally coats the entire mouth.
  • This is a really great stout! Not overly strong on the alcohol content, not overly bitter. Nicely balanced. Tastes great and easy to drink. Doesn’t make you feel super full.
  • I would drink this again and again. This is our first beer from Bilboquet, and after trying it, we are very excited to try their other offerings. Pick up this stout at Zyn.
