"The inhabitants of Montignies-sur-Roc, south of Mons in the province of Hainaut, are called Montagnards. It was therefore perfectly normal for a beer brewed in this city to be called Montagnarde. This beer, robust in taste and strength (9%) is the tops for flavour. It has a fruity and spicy bouquet, it has a stark taste, between a sharp bitterness and a caramelised flavour. It has no sugar, and this pure malt beer oscillates between various tendencies which all round off the bitterness. It has a peppery taste at the back of the mouth and a sharpness on the tongue. It is active in the mouth and lets each flavour express itself individually. It is very active in the glass which gives it a full, lasting, head. It has a long conclusion and puts emphasis on an ever present bitterness but less supported by the caramel. The final impression is one of gingerbread without sugar."
Strong Amber beer aged for several years in oak barrels.
