(On tap au Farmhouse tap n’ grill): Belle couleur rouge vif, malheureusement pas beaucoup d’arômatiques ni de saveurs s’en dégagent. Vraiment décevant malgré une bonne présence en bouche.

16th September 2011
Hazy dark red - brown beer. Big cream - tan head. Light lactose malt on the nose. Palate is crispy and semi dry. Creamy malt with robust hop bitterness but not much hop fruit except a trace of grapefruit. Whisper of bubblegum. Semi dry finish with strong bitter linger. Too much bitterness without any hop fruit.

10 oz. snifter @ Gardner Ale House. Deep ruby with a thin white ring of head. Nose is a subtle English malts. Flavor is a nice layered malt. Toffee, caramel and a light dark fruit note. Body is much lighter then it looks with a fruity hop note in the finish. Texture is on the oily side. It paired nicely with my Pulled Pork sandwich. The English "element" is very subtle. And the ABV is not detectable at all. Nice drinker.

Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy brownish color with dark ruby-red shading and hue, along with some sediment, and a big tan foamy head with great retention, good lacing, and average cling. Its aroma featured caramel malt and sugar with some candy and yeast, and also a mix of fruity hops, a bit of raisin, and some light pine. The beer initially had a rich, malty caramel taste but only light sweetness, which yielded to an intense bitter and somewhat sour grainy-earthy mix, with a light presence of dark fruit. It was a very lively, fizzy beer with high carbonation, and a thick and full mouthfeel that was a bit dry but quite heavy. A very complex beer that became more and more pleasant as it settled. Thank you Tom and Tracy for the great Christmas present!
