sudomorph (745) - Barrie, Ontario, - JUL 11, 2013
341ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with a slightly off-white, one finger head that thins to a film. Some medium lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet with notes of yeast, spices, dark fruits, caramel, and hops. Taste is a touch bitter but balanced will. Has a moderately long, mildly bitter, aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Low-medium body. An interesting beer. Taste is a bit different than the smell would lead on. Worth picking up and trying out. Would probably grab a bottle or two next time I’m in Montreal.

mathieuc (1571) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
Pours a light copper with a medium slightly tinted head with good retention and lacing. Nose is of slight nuts and toasted malt. Taste is of caramel, bread, nuts and not really sweet. Bitterness is medium-high and last for a medium duration. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate. Pretty good, actually.

budedou (447) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JAN 18, 2015
Flavor starts with burnt toast, earthy malts and earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Roasted grain body with cereal hints. Dried leaves and hints of roasted nuts. Finish has a nice blast of taste. Easy to drink

Beardbeerman (143) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a clear, deep copper robe with a moderate amount of macro carbonation topped by two fingers of an off-white frothy head. Retention is pretty good and the lacing capability of the beer is quite nice. The nose is rich roasted malts and toasted nuts paired with a grassy hop foundation. On the tongue, the brew is fluid, roasted, grassy and vapory. The finish is agreable and drops slowly but lasts a while too long. Pretty decent product overall, cheers!

Torrefacto (703) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 20, 2014
Cobre limpio, espuma color crema uniforme. Aromas de tabaco, naranja, herbal y ligeramente pino. Cuerpo medio y textura maltosa, inicio suave, azúcar moreno y final muy seco que recuerda al pino y la resina. Tabaco en el regusto. Buena.

GreatDane1632 (668) - USA - OCT 18, 2014
Received in a trade from Dresden -- Bottle poured into a Kölsch glass. A coppery brilliantly clear beer with thick, white foam that leaves nice lacing. Smells caramelized and a hint of woodiness, bittering hops also detected. Flavor is earthy, wood, caramel and an odd bitter/soap. Drinks very well. With the exception of the hint of soap flavor this is the best alt I’ve every had.
