Bottle from the brewery. Dark and clear ruby-brown with very little head. Aroma has a fair bit of wood and whiskey, but it’s pretty well integrated with the dark rye and licorice notes of the base beer. Soft body with pretty low carbonation - lower than I recall the original beer being, so I’m guessing some was lost during aging. Flavour isn’t quite as well balanced as the aroma - the charred oak and boozy whiskey notes from the barrel aging fight a bit with the roasted malt, coffee and cocoa notes of the original beer - but it’s still quite respectable, and mostly redeemed by a pleasant vanilla-toffee finish.

A beautiful very dark brown beer, with reddish hilights in the light. Almost zero head. The bourbon barrel aging is very prevalent on the nose. Also getting raisins, fig newtons, and molasses. A viscous mouth feel. The tastes are identical, with maybe the addition of some light brown sugar dusting to the whole affair. Getting some plum too as it warms, and very subtle vanilla. Definitely swings the way of malts, rather than hops. This is a runaway winner for my favourite Cameron’s beer.

Equivalent to the Obsidian IMO. Pours a murky brown with a reddy highlight. The nose has an emphasis of wood and barrel tons with big bready and toasty malts. Nice caramel and toffee notes with a sweet malt overall. The finish is warm and full bodied with big malts and barrell notes. Overall, a great brew.

lesifflebiere (1355) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Très peu de mousse dans ce breuvage épais et foncé, couleur brun-rouge au nez de raisins, de vin rouge, de boisé et de sucre d’orge. Le gustatif est dominé par un côté boisé et vanillé franc, qui enrobe le fruité (raisins rouges, prunes) qui forme le corps de cette concoction. Moins épais et indécemment sucré que prévu, ce bock double est étonnamment accessible, malgré des saveurs complexes et franches. Une savoureuse version de ce classique allemand.

pours dark and rich with a thick light tan head? On the nose roasty caramel notes with a hint of noble hops. A sip and you’re in heaven with caramel, malt, , grain, toffee, coffee and a touch of brown sugar notes., all complimented by the bourbon barrelIt bckground, its a plethora of complexity and a wonderful one indeed.low on hops they are nonetheless there on the finish.. Has a dough like character and a medium level of carbonation. Medium full biodied and just as tasty as hell, i wish i would have bought more of these

650ml bottle. 8.6% oak aged series. Pours a clear, deep ruby with a thin tan head. Aroma has big notes of dark fruits, oak barrel, slight spice, a hint of dark malts, and a mild sweetness. Taste is mildly sweet with notes of dark fruits, caramel, and some nice barrel notes. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Slightly syrupy texture with a dryer finish. Overall a really nice beer. Big flavours with a super smooth mouth feel.
