UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 Draught at Cíest What? Deep amber colouration to the body with a small off-white head. Creamy, smooth taste with maltiness and caramel overtones. Medium bodied, but perhaps overcarbonated. Okay, but nothing special.

Bottle. Dark copper-red with a small white creamy head. Smells of doughy caramel, toast, and near burnt malts. Tastes a bit sour and creamy with some abrasive carbonation and almond nuttiness. Iím pretty sure Iíve had this several times over the last couple of years but only got around to rating it now, wow.

Sampled at the Kitchener craft beer show. Pours a nice brown colour with a small head. Aroma is malty, slightly earthy. The taste is almost entirely malty, with very noticeable elements of roasted coffee. Enjoyable over-all.

nice roasty malt nose, flavour is much of the same. Good balance between the roasty malt, and slight caramel notes. Great finish of caramel, i like this alot!

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2006
Draught @ Hostex: Pours deep amber-brown, almost like a cola, with a good sized spotty foam head. Surprising hoppiness in the aroma alongside the expected caramel malts. Flavour is softer than you might expect after the aroma, but man is it good. Caramel sweetness, a pleasing nuttiness, and light hopping. Good stuff!

This dark ale is one of my favourites. Just discovered about 2 weeks ago, it pours a deep orange/red colour with a off white foamy head. To the nose it has roasted malts and nuts with a little fruit. First taste is nice and roasty with the malts and some hop shining through. Maybe a little coffee too. The palate is nice with nore roast and a little smoke to finish off. Very Good!

Lubiere (12284) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2006
Dark golden to brown ale with a thin dissolving white head, a bit lifeless when poured. Light oxidized malt with nutty notes in aroma. In mouth, light sweet malt with light nuttyness and roastiness in final, with bitter chocolate, not very hopped, thinner than expected.
