[4221-20111231] Bottle. Sweet roasted nut grain aroma has a bit of chocolate cocoa. Black body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Cocoa roasted wood nut flavour has a long bitter coffee finish. Full body is bitterly balanced. Delicious, impressive. (8/4/8/4/16) 4.0

jercraigs (8013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2012
2012-12-31. Black body with a nice foamy brown head. Fruity with a mild wine influence, modest dark malt character. 7+ Flavour is lovely, rich dark malt, modest fruity character throughout, light wine, very light roast note. Smooth rich palate with light carbonation. More nuanced than I have described here, lovely stuff. Very very good. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

SlovakSniper (3285) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2011
(Verre de dégustation) Les arômes et les flaveurs de cette version enfûtée sont dominés par les fruits et, plus largement, par le Pinot. La base maltée et les houblons se signalent avec une certaine timidité. La bouche est moyennement ronde avec un pétillement étonnamment fort et une texture à la limite huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes amères et fruitées. Beaucoup moins intéressante que sa grande soeur.

rodenbach99 (3244) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2011
Verre de dégustation partagé au DDC le jour du 13ème anniversaire. Bière noire avec des reflets rouges, une mince filet de mousse forme un rond autour du verre. Le nez est très marqué par le fût, le bois est dominant. Il y aussi une odeur caractéristique de saké. La bouche goûte le vieux fût. Il y a du rôtie et encore une fois le saké, mais malheureusement le goût du bois domine camoufle le tout. Moins bonne que la version ordinaire.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 21, 2011
On tap at DDC 13th aniv party.
Aroma sweet brown sugars, cola with noticeable alcohol elements. Quiet dry.
Appearance amber brown , clean. Creamy beige off white top.3+
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied. Frontal was rather sweet with hint of brown sugar balanced by dryness of alcohol. Cask treatment is noticeable. All nicely wrapped as balanced whole package. Good.

Tap. Yes, I had this, that’s all I’m gonna say. Was told this involves brett, but details were not forthcoming beyond that. Hazy orange, fairly bright, with a decent-sized lasting creamy off-white head. Lovely funky aroma, smells like aromatherapy orange oil, citrus zest and 2-yr-old Orval with a hint of oak, plus some sweet nutty malt character. The taste is more dominated by the oak, some vanilla along with the resin, but it’s a lot like a wine-barrel aged citrus cantillon - not boozy, but definitely strong - fantastic, really, what more to say? Average body, slick, slightly astringent mouthfeel, mild carbonation, with a bit of an acidic linger - smooth and balanced, takes its time, leaves a dry aftertaste - lovely, loved it, well done DdC, let’s see more experiments like this one!

In short: A fruity/vinous juicy big dark ale that is surprisingly easy to drink
How: Cask at brewpub
The look: Black body topped by a small beige head with good retention
In long: Nose is very fruity (grapes and more) but without feeling too vinous. Taste is more vinous than the nose, the wine grapes are really showing. The roastiness of the base beer is almost nowhere to be found, this is a fruity juicy beer with plenty of vinous dark fruits wrapped in caramel with resinous hops to conclude. The typical cask smooth carbonation gave the beer a very juicy mouthfeel. Quite easy to drink for such a big BA beer. I liked it. My last rate of the night. Many more beers followed. Some other stuff happened. Probably a few more beers after that. Then some hours later I was handed a piece of paper that said Public Intoxication Fine. Wow, first time I am officially complimented on my drunkenness.

Lubiere (10294) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2010
A dark borwn ale with an inexistent head. In aroma, a muskey and woody aroma, soy sauce, quite nice. In mouth, a smooth and woody chocolate malt with woody oaken barrel, quite good and enticing. On tap at DDC 12th Anniversary, Sept. 11 2010.
