From a bottle, pours a crystal clear bronze with a thin white head that fades quickly. Aroma is sweet dark bread, flavor is sweet caramel up front that fades into a spicy bready end. Medium body, low carbonation.

Clear dark copper pour with small light tan head. Aroma of malts, caramel, bread dough and faint hops. Taste of caramel malts, toffee, bread dough, faint fruits and slight hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, perfectly balanced. Great beer!

jksipa (197) - NEWMARKET, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a crystal clear dark copper with a big pillowy tan head that fades slowly. Nose is caramel, vanilla and some dark fruit. Sweet caramel start with a very light bitterness and some roasted nuts and grains. Some more fruit hints appear as it warms. Mouth is a bit thin but slick and nicely carbonated. Nice.

samzim (100) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Scent of yeast, caramel, bread, and spice. Clear copper colour. Slight sweetness up front: flavours of bread, caramel, and allspice. Mild body, with mild carbonation. Decent, but nothing too memorable.

dreamflower (478) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Glowing red sunrise colour. Pretty good head. Lively palate. But weak aroma. Kind of watery taste, a little bitter. Id drink it again but its not the first one Id reach for.

northropfrye (1944) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Amber body off white head. Bready and dried fruit aroma. Taste is sweet malts and nice happiness, kind of boozy, almost hot. Palate is quite assertive. Not bad.

I like the bottle work on this. Pours a copper color with white head... It looks kind of boring and makes you think it will taste the same but it?s actually pretty good. Aromas of sweet and toasty grains with hints of sour lime and grassy notes. Nice full yet carbonated mouthfeel. Toasted rye bread and some citrus flavors. I found this to be quite satisfying.

skippy007 (26) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with minimal head that quickly disappears. Malty and chocolate aroma. Sweet malty taste, and only light bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. OK beer, but nothing amazing for me ... perhaps Im not a fan of doppelbocks?

Frothmeister (524) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark red with a dark brown hue, and a tan head with a tinge of yellow that quickly disappeared. Aroma is up front with alcohol, light dried fruit, light coffee, brown sugar, faint earthy notes, chicory, and a smell that makes me think of the brown Ricola lozenges. Medium bodied, and sweet with molasses, dried fruit, coffee, alcohol, a light floral note, and earthiness with a slightly bitter finish. I like it. Tasty.

Hateball16 (105) - - MAY 19, 2013
Pours clear dark brown with lovely ruby highlights, frothy beige head. Aromas are pumpernickel and plums, some toffee. Palate is smooth and medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Malty flavours abound, with a warming boozy aftertaste and some sherry like fruitiness. Finish is long and semi sweet. Well deserved winner of best in show at the Ontario Brewing Awards. Just great.
