A rich red-brown colour with a sweet malt and fruit aroma. Full-bodied, roasted malt and caramel flavour, with a generous fruit-hop character and a satisfying dry finish.

Spab (2938) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2011
On cask at Volo. Pours a cloudy reddish copper with moderate-sized creamy off-white head. Aroma is lots of caramel malt with a more understated fruitiness. Flavour is also lots of caramel with sweet fruit and a modest hoppiness. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

Cask at Cest what. Reddy brown colour, smallish off white head. Nice sweet malty aroma and taste, little sugary fruit. A little bit thin in body. Very drinkable!

Draught @ Bar Volo: Apparently the last of it on tap, my friend who had just beat me to it was kind enough to split it halves and I’m forever grateful. Pours hazy and dark copper, average white head. The aroma is heavy in floral hops, some sweetness breaking through. Flavour is roasted coffee beans, chocolate, and nice floral hop bitterness. What is this? Tastes almost like a light coffee porter with a great mouthfeel. I actually quite enjoyed this.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2009
Cask at Ceili COttage. Looks great - fiery red, creamy head. Malty aroma, nutty, fruity. Taste is a malt bomb! So much malt! Caramel sweet, fruity, and quite hoppy as well. Dare I say it was almost too malty for me. Otherwise, solid cask ale, served in tip top condition.

Cask at Ceil;i Cottage. Fantastic dry session with a good crisp malt flavor, featuring roast java fruit and light caramel, and light hop bitterness in the aroma and taste. Aroma also has light fruit and hops.

Cask @ Victory Cafe Winter Fest. Aroma has lots of malt(candied?) cloudy copper, tiny toffee head. Flavour has less malt than the nose, toasty notes, light bodied, balanced, fairly easy to drink. Good.

On Tap at C’est What? Amber pour with a fluffy head. NIce aroma of brown sugar, and some bready malt with a touch of grassiness. Flavor is quite one dimensional with the sweet malt,and more of the brown sugar, a nice beer, quite drinkable, i could easily down a few.
