GregClow (2937) - Toronto, Ontario, - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. From the original bottling (Jan/2011, I believe), so it’s close to two years old, but has held up really nicely. Very dark ruby-brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is really unique - a bit of oxidization has given it a port-like character, along with deep sweet malt and plum pudding notes, and a mild herbal tone. Medium bodied with light but slightly prickly carbonation. Flavour starts with the port-like sweetness promised by the aroma, followed by plum and raisin, a bit of cocoa, and finishing with a herbal and slightly boozy bitterness. Very good!

shorlin (714) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
Tasted a small sample at a BeerThief gathering. Red brown beer with little carbonation. Aroma comes off like Dr. Pepper. Very earthy. Almost getting the impression of meat, but I’d had a lot to drink so maybe I was mistaken. Kind of sweet, but with a bitter scrape through to the finish. Not a really full bodied beer. Interesting!

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
600 ml bottle. Pours a clear ruby reddish brown with a short lasting beige head. Aroma is caramel, spicy and cola. Flavor is raisin, toast, black licorice, bubble gum, burnt caramel, milk chocolate. Finish is subtle bitterness, spice. Lingering spices. Medium body, velvety mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Very unique, but I thoroughly enjoyed.

Quevillon (2587) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
600 ml bottle purchased at the brewery in June 6, 2013. Cola brown, small head. Aroma of raw and sweet barley, other types of sweet herbs, I imagine it would be bog myrtle and yarrow. The taste is a bit the same, but more full-bodied, spicier too, bitterness of salty herbs. It’s a far better father then mine!

jksipa (455) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
Bomber from the brewery. Pours an opaque brown with a minimal beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is heavy with chocolate and cola and a touch of alcohol. Hint of red wine and raisins. Taste is all sweetness with some bitterness around the edges so that it is not cloying. The body is lighter than the colour would indicate; slick with moderate carbonation. I was expecting this to have significantly more hop character, but enjoyed it regardless.

UM02 (327) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Deep tasting smoky malt with a lot of subtle flavours. A bit of sweetness, a little alcoholic heaviness and a few other flavours that are interesting that I can’t quite place or describe. A bit unique and well done.

pushkinwow (2176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle. Hazy mahogany with a biege head. Raisin, malt, some booze, as it warms up you get more plum and some odd vegetable notes. Mild carbonation, moderate body, alcohol and fruitiness carries through, malt dies off a bit. An interesting beer for sure.

Pours very cloudy darker brown colour with a moderate off white ring around the glass. Aroma is herbs, moderate maltiness, bready, dried fruits, alcohol and licorice. Flavour is herbal, alcohol, medicine like, dark fruits, toffee, light bitterness and some licorice. Interesting beer, wouldn’t drink it all the time but I’m glad I tried it.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a murky deep amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of dark dried fruits, caramel, toast, alcohol and a bit of sweet black licorice. Taste is caramel, raisins, Black licorice, herbal medicine and a bit boozy. Finishes with a nice bitterness and alcohol burning /warmth and everything blends together very well. Excellent beer.

blankboy (6400) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
Draught at Indie Alehouse. Pours a prune juice colour along with a small lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma and flavour are quite fruity along with sweet malt, some herbs & spices, wood, a hint of chocolate, yeast and red wine notes -- lots going on here. Slightly bitter finish. Medium bodied. An interesting beer -- for me a little goes a long way but its a well made beer for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
