   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Deep brown pour with a thin head. The aroma is fairly malty and sweet. Heavily caramelized with lots of dark treacle, heavy sweetness and a figgy sweetness. Chewy and toffeeish. Brown sugar and a touch of molasses as well. It’s well-attenuated but still very sweet. There is a little touch of sourness on the back, but I can’t quite tell if it’s infected. Decent but not as tasty as it could be.

Bottle that has been in my stash for so long that I don’t remember exactly how old it is or where/who it came from. Pours a dark mahogany with little carbonation and no head. Aroma is quite sweet, with notes of fermented dark fruit and barley candy, and a warm backnote. Flavour starts as sweet as the aroma suggests, very malty with notes of dried dark fruit (prune, raisin), but the finish is moderately dry, with notes of anise and a Ricola-like herbal/medicinal quality. Not bad, but the lack of carbonation leads to me believe that it was past its prime.

[3461-20101107] 341mL bottle. Herbal bathroom cleaner and odd floral notes in the aroma. Dark dark brown body with a quick foamy dark tan head. Herbal fizzy pops flavour has whiskey notes and liquified cola bottle gummies. Medium body. So very odd, seems off but is not -- not a fan.

jercraigs (8290) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
2010-11-07. Very dark brown body, modest foamy beige head. 3+ Sweet aroma has an odd spice character to it, sort of anise like and herbal. Flavour is similar with a sharp herbal/anise like character over a sweet malty core. It is kind of interesting but I find it fairly hard to drink. Smooth average plus to medium palate. Interesting, but I do not think I would come back for more. Bottle 5+ months old, via trade with Fred82

Pours dark brown with a fizzy brown head that quickly disappears. Aroma is plum, caramel and spicy. Taste is syrupy, caramel malt, alcohol with a plum finish. Nice sipping beer.

radiomgb (2463) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2009
Ruby, lasting beige head, good lacing.
Aroma is of caramel, Christmas cake, some liquorice, dark fruits.
Flavour is spicy, plums, moderetly sweet, lots of liquorice, watery.
Watery mouthfeel, light body, mild carb.
Finishes with lots of liquorice, sweet and thin.

Not the best from Bieropholie. Too much liquorice and why to thin.

341ml bottle purchased from La Trappe a Fromage in Gatineau, Quebec.
Opened on March 29, 2009.
No date.

PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2009
340ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin head. The aroma was of caramel but no hops that i could detect. The taste was heavy sweetness which took a little getting used to. The texture was sticky, with soft carbonation and a long finish. If i could use a shoulder shrug i would, so i will just say Meh.

Dark ruby, mahogany colr, with a thick tan-colored head, yeasty, sweet toasted, caramelized, biscuity malt, fruity nose with a nice fruitcake, faint molasses, minty chocolatey, licorice note, with some candied black cherry, dried sultana raisi, fig, date accents, with a mild port-like, cherry liquorish aroma followsthrough on a full-bodied palate with a yeasty, good fruity, roasted, toasted, caramelized malt character with some dark bitter chocolatey, minty, molasses, plummy, dark dried date, fig, raisin flavors, with a smooth syrupy mouthfeel burnt brown sugar sweetness, with a hint of port liquor, leading towards a warming, malty, chocolatey, fruity, raisiny, lingering roasty bitterness finish.

Murky brown pour with a thin beige head. Anise dominates the aroma, there seems to be some caramel and earthy malt in there, but it’s crushed by the anise. The flavor has a bit more balanced, the anise leaves some space for the caramel and earthy malt to express themselves, but still keeps the center stage to itself. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and gentle carbonation. Not bad at all, but there’s way too much anise in there.

Diogène (1067) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle. Very deep brown-red with a medium foamy mocha head with average retention and great lacing. Aroma is a ton of liquorice and caramel, molasses, plums and spices. Very very sweet. Flavor is liquorice, caramel, spices, molasses and alcohol with a slightly bitter and sweet finish. Full body. Bièropholie is a brewery that often visit the extremes, but is one has a total lack of drinkability. Its mainly molasses and liquorice.
