mcberko (5918) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
500mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours an opaque dark mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma brings ou toasted nuts, dried fruits, and Belgian yeast. Flavour brings out tart dark fruits, Belgian yeast, and toasted nuts. Really well-balanced, with a lightly tart, spicy finish. Good stuff.

Hammy78 (722) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours a true brown, slight ruby hues, good finger of fluffy khaki head, not much lace. Nose is sweet candy and caramel, a little dark fruit. Tastes a touch bitter, malty, a little heat. I’d like to try this on draught.

mds (2192) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle from the brewery.
Pours a rich copper with a large lasting white head. Smells of sugar, rye bread and caramel. Tastes of burnt sugar and alcohol. Probably in my bottom three Bellwoods beers. 2014-04-04

Freaky_tiki (471) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Deep mahogany pour with a frothing off-white cap that quickly gives up its ghost. This is my first pull from my box from the brewery’s bottle shop. What you get here is a boozy & heavy carbonated interpretation of the style. Very enjoyable brew. Figs, spice & marmalade on the tongue. Love the label design. Dig my crazy pic of bottle & panther on this page.

Spab (2241) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
500 ml bottle from brewery retail store. Pours a hazy caramel colour with decent-sized, lasting light beige head. Aroma is candied fruits, dark dried fruit and caramel. Flavour is sweet and fruity with candy sugar, caramel, raisins/dates and even a little banana. Body is lighter than I would have anticipated. Very drinkable.

neuromatt (1096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
500 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a branded stem glass. Pours clear mahogany with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of dates, bananas, berries, caramel and subtle spice. The flavour is medium sweet up front but it dries out towards the end. Notes of dates, raisins, caramel, banana, berries and cherry come through, along with a soft spiciness. It closes out with a peppery alcohol note, combined with perhaps chocolate and cherry. The finish is long and malty with fruity notes and a dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, while it has a nice malt profile, it is a little too alcoholic for my taste. The body is thinner and drier than I would like in a dubbel as well. 2014-03-24

jksipa (273) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
500ml bottle from the brewery. Deep hazy brown pour with a big tan head that settles slowly. Nose is earthy yeast, caramel and toast with some light dark fruit and spice. Taste is sweet caramel and dried fruit and banana with quite a bit of spice appearing at the end. Medium slick mouth mouth with active carbonation.

sudomorph (487) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2013
On tap at Bellwoods. Pours a murky, dark caramel/ruby with a half finger cream head that thins to a moderate film. Slight lacing. Aroma is faint. Hints of dark fruits, caramel, and a touch of spice.Taste is warm and inviting. A balanced sweet with touch of candy sugar, dark fruits, and autumn spices.Medium body and carbonation. A touch slick in the mouth with a lively carbonation. The aroma reminded me of a watery octoberfest brew but the texture is a lot fuller. Overall I?m really liking this. A really nice seasonal brew. Will order again. Cheers!

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
Draught at Bellwoods. Pours dark red-brown with a dissipating head. The aroma is of banana, candi sugar, and raisins. The taste is medium-sweet, of caramel malt, with a bit of chocolate and toast. The sweetness, medium-heavy body and low carbonation made this feel like a barleywine made with Belgian yeast.

robinvboyer (2984) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2012
on tap at Bellwoods. Dry, malty, bready, and a lovely sweetness. Solid body, a little over active carb. Medium bitterness, and a dry malty sweet finish.
