presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle. Label says "8" rather than "6" but style and ABV are the same. Huge 80% head that required waiting a while to try. Lasting yellow-brown foam on crisp copper. Aroma has some sweetness and dark malt. Nice body. Dark malt is tasty with hints of chocolate and plums, although there is an underlying sourness that seems out of place and slows you down. A hint of saltiness.

probstblueribbon (2916) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2012
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Very deep mahogany with a nice orange-tan foam. Aroma: Slightly tangy fruits, brown sugar, warm spices, almost a touch of smoke, a wee bit of funk, dark dried fruits, vinous, hints of vanilla and wood, some darker-roasted malt notes, nice. Palate: Medium+ body, fairly full, rounded effervescence. Flav.: Boozy dark dried fruits, fruit cake, brown sugar, some light tangy/bright fruit notes, sour cherries, warm spice notes, some root beer herbal notes, good; dry with limited bitterness and a slightly thin (for style) finish with fruits and a little brown sugar.

Not perfect, but certainly decent.

cfrancis (2355) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin off white top. Aroma is roasty malts and raisins. Taste is well carbonated, fizzy mouthfeel with fig, raisin and roasted malt.

UM02 (303) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2012
Nice roasty malt tasting brune. Burnt malt, a subtle not overpowering sweetness, some hazelnut flavour. Not enough subtle or hidden flavours to be a great beer of this style but still solid. As in many of its beers (its stout being the exception) this brewery seems to be aiming to brew a standard beer of this style with nothing too risky or offputting for the non-beer connaisseur. Unlike many of the breweries who are aiming at a less specialized market they are still able to brew a good beer while doing this. Not going to be on any top ten lists but still a pleasant and enjoyable beer. The only complaints can be about what is not there (more subtle, varied flavours) not what is there.

AlainG (1213) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
Bière rousse limpide, aucun col. Au nez, de très faibles odeurs sucrées émanent de ce liquide. On parvient cependant à détecter des senteurs de pruneaux et de cassonade. En bouche, il y a un goût malté, amer, plutôt âcre et sucré. J’ose espérer que je suis tombé sur une mauvaise bouteille, parce que je ne trouve pas que c’est réussi comme bière. (120-281111)

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
341 ml bottle. Pours a nice hazy brown, with a thin beige head. Smells of oak, tastes of typical belgian yeast, bready, fieldberries, hazelnuts. Very little bitterness ; almost imperceptible. Lingering green grapes taste. Body is watery, carbonation is somewhat high, alcohol is imperceptible. A very good double abbey.

TheJester (1873) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2011
341 mL bottle. Muddy chestnut brown with a small beige head. Aroma has yeast, alcohol (!), some dark, dried fruit. Not too sweet. Flavour is about the same, although it is quite uncomplicated and nothing stands out . Fuller than expected, considering the low ABV for the style. Not full for the style, though. Not bad.
