Helsdon (183) - Toronto, 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. I’m not finding much complexity here, but a passible brew. But I think I’m going to ask the guys to go pick up some historically exceptional beer, when they’re over in Belgium to sign that Treaty of Ghent.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2013
A dark reddish brown ale with a thin big bubbled mocha head. In aroma, a sweet nutty malt with light herbal hops, and a bit of boiled veggies. In mouth, a nutty malt with light metallic notes, herbal hops and beany character, so-so. Boring...must have been a drag for the Riflemen....

[5030-20121224] 500mL bottle. Toasted malt aroma is infused with fresh buttery coffee grounds. Clear, dark brown amber body with a quick bubbly off-white head. Toasted coffee malt flavour has a lingering leafy mould note. Tasty, drinkable. (7/3-/7/3/15) 3.5

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
2012-12-24. Dark red brown body, tiny beige head. 3+ modest dry malty aroma, light earthy quality. 6+ flavour is similar, dry earthy malt lingers into the finish, modest bitterness throughout. Very mild nutty undertones. 6+ average palate is under carbonated and feels thinner as a result. Decent, accomplishes what they were aiming for I expect but it is not really to my own tastes. Bottle, LCBO, Brantford

czar (4503) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2012
pours hazy copper-light brown-ish, red tint, without a head. aroma: nice blend of caramel, nuts, spices, and leafy-grassy hops - light but present hopping. fresh toasted and lightly roasted cereals. taste has also earthiness, very hint of wood and nuts, hint of chocolate, clovey. average to soft carbonation, light to medium body. overall: thought it would have been boring, but it wasn’t.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Serving: 500 ml bottle courtesy of my brother in law. Thanks Brian! It pours a ruddy brown with a large head of loose tan bubbles. The nose is faintly roasty with not much else. The flavor oddly enough follows suit. There is a light roasty flavor with a hint of dark nuttiness, maybe a little black walnut. Faint earthiness with a lingering light hop bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Interesting brew that borders on becoming a porter.

Bouteille 500ml. De couleur brune et voilée. Nez malté de caramel aux notes terreuses et rôties, léger de noix et de houblon herbeux avec des notes de chocolat noir ainsi que de faibles traces de café. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Léger goût de noix asséchant et accompagné de traces de chocolat noir lors de l’entrée en boucbe auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût malté de caramel moyennement rôti et aux notes terreuses ainsi que des traces de pain grillé puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux ainsi que des notes de café. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, moyen-léger amer de rôti et de houblon herbeux avec des notes de café et de noix rôties.
