Johnsense (791) - - JAN 5, 2012
Black pour, little head. Aroma of dark fruit, cigarette smoke and dark toffee. Taste of peat, smoke, toasted malt, some brown sugar. Medium body - carbonation is right for the style. Prefer this one on tap, but still a fairly interesting beer and one that I will pick up from the store in Campbellford.

Beer Fest, Toronto: Black amber with beige head. Aromas of smoke and coffee with some toast. Roasty, nutty, malty flavour. Very promising.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
On tap at the Black Tomato (Ottawa, ON). Opaque black body with a thin beige creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with smokey and grainy hints. Taste is sharp and carries robust smokey notes. Ends with a strong but rather short bitter/smokey finish. Well done.

Ontbeertaster (2335) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2011
On tap, Pretty good stuff, it pours a black colour but not too too dark, the had a light aroma of smoke, with a little maltness in there. The beer was a little malty up front and a nice smokyness too it. The beer taste a fair bit smoky at front then the beer drinks really well and mixes with the smoke. Tasty some, recommend a taste

On tap at the Wooly. Pours deep black, with a reddy tinge, very thin light tan head. Smoky aroma, taste is pretty smoky, you can taste a hint of the peat in there. Interesting!

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2011
Sampled at Royal York beer fest. Pours a very clear reddish-brown with thin tan head. Aroma is all smoky malt. Quick sweetness at the front is followed by a real big smoke finish. Some light bitterness. Smokey flavour lasts moderately into the aftertaste. A tad one dimensional.

341ml bottle from the brewery, dark mahogany color, with a tan head, mild toasted, caramelized, biscuity, peat- smoked malt nose with some faint fruitcake, chocolate accents, and some light toffee, nutty notes, and a faint bacon aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a mild sweet toasted, caramelized, earthy peat-smoke malt character with some fruitcake, dark dried fruit backbones of fig, date and raisin, with a light bitter chocolate, black coffee undertone, leading towards a sweet, fruity, toasty, smoky, roasted malt bitterness finish.

Tap at Volo. Great beer. Aromas of cola, bacon, smoke, and copper. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark brown, with no head.

Draught. decent brew. I like the way that these guys experiment. a good variety of interesting, though not perfect brews. Dark brown.. with a slight red color. a good mix of hops and scotch... a decent brew.
