Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, - NOV 11, 2007
Bouteille. Couleur cuivrée-rougeâtre, légèrement voilée, mousse moyenne, persiste et trace le verre. Arôme très subtil de fruits et de malt caramel. Goût de houblons floraux, d’alcool, de levure, de malt caramel et torréfié, amertume moyenne, finale amère et de fruits. Corps moyen, mais selon moi effervescence trop faible pour ce style. Alt correcte, goût intéressant.

pours a very dark amber almost brown. Interesting aroma of dark caramel malt,and some corriander, and pine. Flavour is actually quite woody, and piney, with an odd aftertaste of kosher dill pickles, and is quite bitter in the finish. Wow, this is odd. I"m not liking this.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2008
Bouteille de 341 ml. La bière est de couleur cuivrée avec des reflets rougeâtres. Un beau chapeau blanc couvre le précieux liquide. Au nez des arômes de malt herbeux, de houblons, de tourbe avec des effluves de fruits rouges font sentir. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen. Les flaveurs sont maltées et boisées avec des notes de fruits murs, de caramel et d’herbes. La finale est sèche et un peu amère.

Malty aroma, caramel and a hint of toast, deep copper, small, firm, long lasting toffee head, some lace. Flavour is woody, nutty, roasted malts, some pitfruit. Medium bodied, very well balanced, quite bitter. Very nice example.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-mahogany with an average size diminishing white head. Mild yet somewhat pleasant aroma of caramel malt, peas (!), nuts and light hops. Peas? Weird. it kind of works though. Surprisingly good flavour of caramel malt, nuts, fruit, light floral hops and a decent bitter finish. Medium bodied. I was not expecting much from this beer but it was actually pretty good and one of AMB’s finer efforts.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2007
Bottle: Poured a deep clear brown color alt with a medium foamy head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma of huge caramel malt with some medium sweetness is quite enjoyable. Taste is dominated by some huge caramel malt with some notes of nuts and a light hoppy finish. Full body with some average carbonation. Definitely the best thing I have had from this somewhat inconsistent brewery.

GoLdFiNgEr (111) - La Pocatière, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Bière rousse, qui est brouillée. Un léger goût de caramel, ainsi qu’une bonne amertûme dans la finale. Une bière très goûteuse par contre.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper body with a medium-sized soapy white head, leaving some lace. The aroma is pretty nutty with plenty of caramel malts and light vegetation. Extremely bitter up front with light breadiness and nut flavour balancing it out. Body is a bit brash but still quite drinkable.
