jksipa (612) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy dark copper with no head whatsoever. Strong malty nose with vanilla and roasted nuts. Sweet toffee and fruit with some smokiness and a light leafy bitterness. Nuttiness appears in the finish. Medium- slick mouth with VERY soft carbonation. Quite enjoyable despite the carbonation. I would have thought this was just a bad bottle but other reviews have indicated the same.

Tranquillity (1577) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2015
Bottled. Almost no head, brown clear body. The aroma is malty, a bit roasted. The taste is a bit burnt, with a lot of malts. Quite weak flavor even though I drink it at room temp.

Bottle - Toasty notes and some nuts. Deep brown with a small beige head. Light toast and nutty notes. Not bad.

KoNrRiI (859) - Ňrhus, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, brown color and a small, quickly-disappearing head. Aroma of dark malts, hints of liquor, wood, some smoke, wood varnish, and perhaps a delicate touch of peat. Taste is sweet, malty, delicately spicy, and woody. Medium body, thin texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is full of malts, somewhat bready, but other than that rather simple. Overall quite a nice beer, simplistic but it rather befits the name.

jwalk4 (1) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2015 does not count
This beer accomplishes all that it set out to be: a brown/mild ale with a taste and aroma that is reminiscent of flavors and ages long past. Served warm, as is suggested on the bottle, the beer seems to reluctantly release a bouquet of roasted nuts, malt, and toffee reinforced with a sweet backbone of brown sugar. The aroma gives way to the taste which again bathes the senses in warm nutty and toffee flavors. Biscuit flavors appear too. At the end of the sip, the drinker is treated to a mild hop bitterness that is only perceptible by mouthfeel, not by hop flavor. This beer has a clear and deep reddish brown colour, and is a real treat with a plate of pretzels on an autumn afternoon. Enjoy.

Bendrixian (1368) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours clear and light brown in colour. Aroma is a bit musty earthy with some lightly roasted malts and toffee. medium bodied brew having a lightly roasted flavour and a bit of toffee as well. nothing special but better than my expectations.

Strangebrewer (1036) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
bottle. Poured clear ruby/brown with a thin beige head. Rich roasty malt aroma. Medium body, low carbonation, slick mouthfeel that finishes a bit metallic. Toasted malt flavour, nutty and earthy, some notes of coffee and herbal hops.

radiomgb (2558) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Mahogany in colour, very thin tan head, very light lacing. Aroma is nutty, some caramel, not much else. Flavour is nutty, some caramel, light roast. Thin mouthfeel, light body, light carbonation. Finishes quick, rye, watery. Nothing special, blah.

Helsdon (318) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
Number two of the Historic Beers four pack I picked up. Commme on Black Creek. Will this beer go down like a rock to head to General Zebulon Pike, or a roaring success like the Bladensburg Races? (Anyone getting this historical, yet subtle US bashing? We did win that war after all, if not all the battles.) It pours an almost opaque brown, with a wee bit of mahogany light filtering through. The head it a bit outrageous, four fingers to spill over the glass on a careful pour. Smells of malts, caramel mostly, and dusty oak (ya I know.) The taste has a good amount of caramel malt, and is a little on the sweet side. A little bitterness on the finish, but just a little. Iím not finding much complexity here, but a passible brew. But I think Iím going to ask the guys to go pick up some historically exceptional beer, when theyíre over in Belgium to sign that Treaty of Ghent.
