Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, - DEC 4, 2011
341 ml bottle. I’m not a big fan of smoked beer but this one was actually quite good in my opinion. Pours pale brown color with a thin white head. Smoked malt but balanced by a good caramelish sweetness. Average bitterness, medium finish.

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Évaluation no 80. Avril 2011. Un nez au fumé très présent. De couleur rousse, foncée et trouble. Une mousse très abondante et très persistante. L’attaque est extrêmement fumée. Saumon fumé. Légers accents de caramel. Le fumé prends toute la place. Surprenante te intéressante.

Post-mortem rating as AMB has been out of business for awhile...I found this in a "dépanneur" where I had never went before. 341ml bottle poured into tumbler. Aroma is of caramel malt and mediumly intense smoke. Taste is smoky and mixes in with some sweetness from the malt. Body is a bit watery with some slight slickness. Carbonation a bit below average. Finish is slightly acidic but this might be due to the fact that this bottle is at least one and half year old...! Well preserved, I have to say, but I remember that I had one at the time before this brewer went bankrupt and this acidity wasn’t there. Overall, an above average smoked beer but certainly not my best. Still, makes a good session beer.

Boutip (4661) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with light retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light smoke with some caramelized notes is interesting. Taste is mostly a mix between some caramelized notes with light toffee notes with some light smoke notes. Body is about average with medium carbonation. I thought this was easily drinkable but missing some smoke which might be due to bottle being aged a bit.

BeerGolem (664) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle, 341 ml. Smoky, you said? That’s almost an understatement! Dark red/light brown color with a medium head. Aroma: Really smoky. I usually like it, but this time, it is a little too much. A little caramel, but it is hard to smell or taste it. Palate: very watery. Despite this, a fairly enjoyable beer! Bouteille, 341 ml. Fumée, vous dites? C’est le moins qu’on puisse dire! Robe rouge foncée/brune pâle. Arôme: Très fumée, un peu trop. Cela rend difficile la perception du goût de caramel. Malgré cela, une assez bonne bière!

matt7215 (2167) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2011
341ml bottle from jsprime. pours deep red with huge chunky floaties and a small tan head. typical vauge rousse aroma, kinda a smattered malt with a hint of iodine. the flavour is similar, the smoke shows more but the base beer doesntseem very well defined. ugly to look at and only semi interesting to drink.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2011
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur cuivrée foncée et claire. Nez de malt fumé (jambon fumé, notes de bacon et de fumée de bois) et légèrement rôti avec des notes de caramel et de houblon herbeux ainsi que de faibles traces fruitées (cerises). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture aux notes crémeuses. Goût de malt fumé (léger de jambon fumé, notes de fumée de bois) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de caramel et un très léger goût de malt rôti ainsi des de faibles traces de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen et aux petites notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes rôties et fumées.

Spab (2338) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
341 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a hazy orangeish brown with modest-sized tan head. Aroma is smoky caramel malt and a little spiciness. Flavour is a meaty smokiness with underlying caramel still present and a light spiciness. Decent.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle. Beautiful red brown with a tan head. Sweetly smoky aroma, a little meaty, very subtle underlying peaty caramel. Palate delivers the same sweet smokiness but in the correct balance to allow appreciation of the underlying fruity caramel. Finishes dry. Very nice.

Bendrixian (1094) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2011
A fairly carbonated but cloudy brew offering a red/brown colour. Aromas of hickory smoke, wooden casks and some floral notes as well. Has a bitter mid palate and is actually quite drinkable despite all the hickory and bacon fat notes.
