jercraigs (8106) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
2013-06-22. Crisp dark red amber body with a nice beige head and lace. Aroma is pleasant, leafy hops over pleasantly sweet malt base. Flavour is similar, leafy green hops, light bitter over layer and finish but the middle is sweet malt. 7++ Average to medium bodied palate, modest carbonation. Relatively simple but quite enjoyable. Central City Version at Session Festival 2013

2014-05-03. Crisp dark red-brown body with a nice foamy beige head. 3++ Aroma of green leafy hops, light dusty malt accents. Flavour is fairly bitter, nice malty core, lingering resiny green hops. Average plus bodied palate, pleasant carbonation suits it. Not super complex but pretty enjoyable. 7/4/7/3/15 FM Version Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

mcberko (7477) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a dark reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of dry caramel malts, bready malts, and some pungent resinous hops. Flavour is very round, full of dry caramel malts, resinous hops, and some very subtle fruity notes. Extremely well-balanced but the flavour profile isnt anything special. Good stuff.

25/X/14 - 65cl bottle @ The Autumn Gathering formerly known as RBBAG Mons (Gent) - BB: n/a (2014-1258) Thanks to JefVerstraete for sharing the bottle!

Clear red beer, small creamy yellow head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, sweet malts, raisins, bit fruity. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, caramel, pretty bitter, bit nutty, some citrus, bit resinous, dried fruits. Aftertaste: bitter, malty, pretty hoppy, fruity, sugary, sweet notes, more a barley wine than anything else Id say.

77ships (4411) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
Thank you JefVerstraete! Tasting glass from 750 ml. bottle consumed @ The Tasting formerly known as Mons RBBAG I (2014). Hazy red / brown / amber, little head. Nose is caramel, tad herbal bitter, sticky sweet with bitter peel. Taste is bitter peel with thick syrupy malt base, herbal hops, chewy malts & sugar, bitter finish. Substantially thick. Tastes like a hoppy barley wine more than anything else, quite enjoyable even though Im not big on fresh hoppy barley wines.

robinvboyer (3313) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Super dark red pour, huge fluffy, sticky off white head. Lovely citrus aroma, big notes of pine, and some sticky chewy malts. The hops are pungent, and sticky, and quite bitter. the mouthfeel is sticky, and thick, the carbonation is a little low and soft. the finish is highly bitter, big notes of grassy, citrucy hops. The malts are thick with caramel, and bread. A big hoppy red ale, nice stuff.
