At Rockwells. A robust brown ale that starts malty and sweet but in the end left a spicy tingling in the mount. Serving: Tap

RickTheRick (635) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2015
Brune foncée aux reflets acajou, une mousse quasi inexistante se pose sur la bière. Des arômes épicés tels que la cannelle et la muscade s’agencent à des odeurs de malt rôti. Plus sucrée qu’épicée en bouche, le piment se pointe discrètement en finale pour ajouter une chaleur agréable. C’est spécial, mais je ne fus pas impressionné outre-mesure.

bnokk (276) - Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2015
AROMA - very light Belgian scent. Not too much else. APPEARANCE - very light golden color, totally clear with light head. TASTE - hints of Belgian flavor, but overall a pretty weak offering even for a blonde.
