OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 Couleur acajou aux reflets rouge extrême. Mousse beige pale et crémeuse, plutôt persistante, adhérant partiellement au verre et se résumant éventuellement à laisser une fine couche sur le dessus du verre. Arômes de malt hautement grillé et de toast sous une touche doucement fruitée. Saveurs toujours très grillées presque chocolatées sur une adéquate présence de houblon floral aux évidentes réminiscences anglaises. La touche fruitée détectée en arôme rappelle maintenant les poires bien mures et rappelle presque une oktoberfest lorsque combiné au malt grillé…quoique que trop extrême pour jumeler la douceur de ce style. Étalement court, corps d’épaisseur moyenne, carbonatation douce et faiblement piquante. Supérieur à mes irraisonnables attentes.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Bottle: Poured a medium black color ale with a nice foamy off-white head with standard retention. Aroma of roasted malt is kind of weak and I could not find anything else really. Taste is also a bit thin with some roasted malt and not much else going on. As mentioned, body is thin and carbonation is low I’ve had much better beer form that style to truly care about that one.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a very deep red with a foamy light tan head. Nice malty aroma with some light flowery hops. Nice sweet malt flavor with some hops bitterness. The 7% ABV is well hidden. Very enjoyable beer.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2005
on tap at greylodge - dark dark red color - like burnt copper. aroma is all malt - no discernable hop aroma. flavor is big and thick, but not syrupy or sickly sweet. mostly malt with caramel flavors. enjoyable, but one was enough for me.

Strange name. Different label on the bottle I had. Heavy indeed, and an flavor teetering off vanilla. Still a rich experience, but don’t have too many or they’ll go to yer head.

kramer (5107) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours into pint glass with an average head, fizzy and off-white. Body is clear and brownish ruby colored. Aroma is pleasing with some floral hop notes. The flavor is good malty with a decent hop finish. Largest problem is the mouthfeel for me, kind of fizzy and thin. Surprised to learn this is 7%, wouldn’t have guessed over 5%. In all a decent beer but isn’t something to expend alot of effort to track down.

Had at the Rohrbach’s summer beer fest. Looking at this one I was preparing to be wowed. Dark red color, decent tan head. Hoppy body even considering the sweet maltiness. Unfortunately it was the final beer I sampled - will have to try again when the taste buds are fresher.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2005
Robe brune auburn claire surmontée d’une mousse légère. Arômes de houblon amertume et de malt caramélisé. Saveurs de malt, de caramel, de café. Belle profondeur des arômes et saveurs. Long arrière-goût.

Deep amber hazy body over a creamy head; sweet and spicy aroma; rich and malty front end with toasted english muffin notes; somewhat dry finish, and pretty well balanced; pretty nice, overall.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2005
HBF 2005. I was surprised by how much I liked this beer. Im usually not into english strong ales, but this one was really good. Deep amber/mahagony with a slight lasting light beige head. Aroma is loaded with sweet caramel malts and balanced by a nice herbal/earthy hop presence. SOme fruity hints as well. Flavor is toffee, crystal malts, and some fruit with a good hop balance. Slightly bitter finish balances some of the sweetness. Very nice.
