4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 600ml. Poured a clear copper beautiful color with a medium beige colour head and some lacing. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla and sweet caramel malt. Taste brings up caramel malt, vanilla, cherries, dark fruits. No taste or aroma of hops. Good carbonation. A very well balanced strong Red Ale. A great beer. I would love to pair it with creme Brulee as the knowledgeable Brewster Matthew O’ Hara suggests!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt notes with some notes of whiskey and vanilla which brings nice character. Taste is also a mix between sweet caramelized malt notes some whiskey and vanilla notes that are not overwhelming. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Quite enjoyable and I really liked the well balanced usage of whiskey barrels.

Lovely beer that has a rich amber colour with an aroma of caramel and bourbon. Loved this beer. The large bottle is a bit much, would’ve preferred a smaller size, but overall this beer is pretty darn good.

Wait? Is that a lucha libre mask on the label? Pour cherrywood with a finger egg cream cap that fades to small islands of foam. Sweet on the tongue; robust finish. The 1/8 oak finish is sliver that I wish would dig a little deeper.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pours red and hazy with a thin beige head. Aroma of mostly British hops. Flavour is fruity (cherry) and sweet, with a dry finish. Only the slightest hint of whiskey right at the end. Another pretty much average beer from Beau’s.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Over-priced 600mL bottle, LCBO. Pours a clear but dark amber with a small beige head. The aroma is very pleasant, spicy yet creamy at the same time, cherries, cinnamon, deep caramalt character and peat, with minor earthy undertone. Flavour is even more interesting, same peat and caramalt but with a berry-like sweetness in the finish that’s neat. No booze but the beer feels somewhat thicker, though not quite syrupy. There’s a minor woody-dryness that shows up eventually, which indicates that they may have actually mixed in some barrel-aged stuff and that isn’t just marketing. This is actually pretty good, I just hate how much anything from Beau’s costs, especially in relation to the generally mediocre quality.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear dark copper with 3 fingers of foamy off-white head. Smell is bread, hay, toffee, and a bit of hops as well, maybe something a bit citrusy? Palate is on the lighter side of medium with average carbonation. Taste is very interesting, slight sweetness at first though balanced with a fruity hoppiness, the bitterness builds slightly, but then turns to a more caramel sweet flavour with less fruitiness, before leaving a moderately short lasting somewhat sweet aftertaste. Probably the best Irish red I’ve ever had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ok but a little heavy on sweet side for me. Pours clear reddish orange. Not much head or lacing. Aroma has prominent booze, malt and sugar water. Thickish consistency. Finish sweet and astringent. As all Beaus, too expansive by bottle for quality of product. Good that I found it on tap at Only Cafe.
