February 7, 2014. 750mL bottle from Craig’s collection. White head, dark brown colour. Touch of sour cherry in nose, and cherries and plums. Toffee and caramel flavours accompany cherry and plum flavours. Probably my favourite from this brewer.

A bottle from 2009 cellared well. The aroma is gorgeous with a burst of dark fruits; prunes, plum, tart cherries, raisin. Lots of toffee, brown sugar and molasses like malt notes as well. A nearly black body with a thick foamy beige head that covers the entire glass. Taking the first sip a slight sour fruit notes works well in the middle with lots of prunes and raisin notes. Light roasted malts with earthy flavours and toffee coming together. The finish is warm but not boozy with a good balance. A really smooth mouthfeel with a creaminess. Overall an incredible brew.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours a clear deep dark mahogany with a thing slightly off white cap that leaves behind spiderwebs on the glass. The aroma is sweet, dark fruits, light burnt sugars, old desk drawer, light grape, light marzipan, premium cigar (reminds me of alec bradley tempus). The flavour is also sweet, big on the dark fruits and burnt sugars, raisin, cigar (again AB tempus), some herbal presence. The finish is light but lingering, sort of herbal mixed with a rains sweetness. Solid, would buy this again for sure.

Candy in your mouth! It’s like the cotton candy of beer. Nice Belgian style Quad! Picked it up at Bières Du Monde in Aylmer

pumpkinhead2 (435) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
Bière brune foncé aux reflets rubis, parfaitement limpide, bonne effervescence, et surmontée d’un bon col brunâtre, mousseux, dense et persistant. Arômes surtout malté, malt grillé et caramel, avec un peu de mélasse, on perçoit également du houblon floral, quelques agréables effluves d’alcool, un peu de levure terreuse, des fruits foncés confits (pruneau, datte…), une légère vanille, et un peu d’épices (poivre, piment de la Jamaïque, muscade…). Un très beau nez, agréable, assez intense et très complexe. En bouche, ce n’est pas très pétillant, plutôt mousseux, mais l’onctuosité au palais est exceptionnelle, c’est velouté, soyeux, incroyablement rond. Au goût, tout comme au nez, le malt grillé et le caramel dominent, avec de la mélasse, un petit goût alcoolisé très agréable et fort bien intégré, les fruits foncés confits sont plus présents qu’au nez et on retrouve une légère levure terreuse. Un petit houblon floral se pointe en fin de bouche et nous amène une amertume légère mais bien sentie. Les épices sont plutôt subtiles au goût. Une bière très complexe, plutôt sucrée mais pas trop, et chaleureuse (belle intégration de l’alcool!). Un gros coup de cœur pour moi, je trouve que cette bière ressemble à une excellente scotch ale, mais avec un petit quelque chose en plus.

750mL bottle from LCBO. Powerful beer with a flavour and aftertaste that doesn’t betray its alcohol. Nice but mild aroma. Pours really foamy, but settles into a nice amber head. Medium to full palate, perfectly carbonated for the style. Has a sweet, caramelly flavour - a little sweet for my personal taste, but a wonderful example of the style.

Inbreak (2490) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 23.10.2013, 0,75l bottle sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet and spiced, caramel malts, spices, almond cake, sugar, toffee. Taste is sweet and kind of sour-ish, caramel malts, berries, butterscotch, toffee, flowers, grass, sugar. Medium bitterness. Fair enough, but very interesting though.

It pours ruby with brownish highlights; the head beige and foamy. The aroma has notes of: ruby fruit jam, sweet malts, raisins, and honey. The taste is medium sweet that finishes medium-light bitter; there are notes of: orange-zest, sweet malts, and slight anise. Palate is medium bodied, it has medium carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, it the aroma has much more personality than the taste or the palate - it falls flat.

Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep red clear body with a medium creamy light beige head - very nice. Nose is spices, sweet caradamum, cumin, caramel, apple juice, hints of red fruits. Taste is sweet malts, red fruits, raisins, honey, hints of caramel and straw. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. Nice spicy ale.
