Lubiere (12572) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2011
A reddish brown ale with a thin lacing moka head. In aroma, pleasant nutty malt and floral hops, lightly resinous, chocolate notes. In mouth, a nice nutty and lightly peaty malt, with good hopping, more like a brown than a rousse....but very nice. Bottle from Probstk, thanks Karl.

Draft - Caramel and light grains. Clear copper with a nice beige head. Malty light cocoa and a rich finish. Nice but a little odd for an amber.

Bottle courtesy of Dany I believe, probably in payment for smuggling lizards into Canada for him. You have to tape those little guys in places no one wants to think about. Pours a deep browned ruby with a thin beige tan head. Sweet malt and a touch of chocolate on the nose. Medium bodied, chocolaty, sweet malt and cocoa. Easy drinking, soft malt, leading into a gentle bitterness on the finish. Good stuff.

jercraigs (9493) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2011
2011-04-30. Crisp dark amber-brown body, nice creamy beige head and lace. Flavour has a grainy astringency to it that is echoed in the aroma, where a very dry malt character meets old roasty coffee. Light bitterness and mild toasty malt character in the flavour. Average palate. Pleasant toasty malt accents fail to redeem the grainy character of the malt for me. Just okay. Tap at Volo, Toronto

JoeMcPhee (9244) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
Deep ruddy amber pour. The nose is lightly caramelly with a touch of woody/earthy hoppiness. Moderately hopped with a touch of caramel sweetness. Pretty well-balanced actually. Decent session brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[3713-20110430] Tap. Very peanuty butter aroma has just a hint of used coffee grounds. Clear, dark amber red body with a quick foamy white head. Metallic peanuts flavour is mostly just generic grains. Medium body. Average. (6/3/6-/3/11) 2.9

czar (7361) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
pours unclear dark golden, red tint, with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. toasted caramel and fruity maltiness - surprising hint of chocolate, dry fruity liquor - berries, bland herbal grassiness, light earthy notes, very chalky and mineral. light carbonation, light body - a tad watery; short and bland yet sort of balanced grassy-herbal finish. weak amber but then again inoffensive.

blankboy (7110) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2011
Bottle at Golden Tap Awards 2011, beerbistro. Pours a deep orange-amber with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma of grain, some fruit and light resiny hops. Flavour: Yup, that tastets like a "Rousse", with caramel malt, light hops and nuts. Average bodied. A little dull but it’s fine.
