mcberko (5368) - 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 isnít anything special. Good stuff.

robinvboyer (2878) - 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.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 650 ml bottle. Pours a dark red/brown with medium foamy head. Aromas of brown sugar, roasted malts, dark sour fruit and citrus. Flavors of piney hops, roasted malts, dough, and prunes/figs. Some alcohol notes. Quite good.

Gurthnar (1249) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has quite strong hops (grassy, herbal, noble) with decent caramel and alcohol notes. Clear reddish amber colour. Taste has quite strong sweetness with caramel and light candy, in conjunction with high hoppy bitterness. Nicely balanced and nicely drinkable, overall very nice beer.

HeistAlmighty (1042) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Deep red colour. Aroma is strong hops with some full red ale malt behind it. Taste is powerful resin, with caramel and biscuit malt backing it up. Full body. Overall, while the two strong forces are balanced, the are almost too intense. This beer is experienced, but maybe not savoured. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Pours a deep walnut-tinged ruby red with an overripe fruity aroma - think brown bananas - and a light note of sweet mash. Short head but plenty of foam & lace with great retention. Strong malty body, more damp grains, guava gives way to a hint of brown banana (again) and believe it or not, avacado & diacetyl. Since itís got such a malty backbone, the diacetyl simply tastes intentional, so itís still quite quaffable, though there is not doubt of the alcohol content of this beast. Slightly underwhelming carbonation, but nice creaminess to the body. This beer definitely has issues, but Iím not sure that I really mind.
