Whatup14 (1073) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, - JAN 24, 2013
Bouteille 341ml. Couleur acajou tirant sur le rouge, légère mousse beige laissant un anneau. Arôme de caramel, fruits confits, malt, prune, alcool, sauce soya? Goût de malt rôti, caramel, alcool, légère amertume. Carbonation faible, corps moyen-dense, huileuse.

JorisPPattyn (8429) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2015
Clear chestnut beer under a small, slightly yellowish head. Sweet, chestnuts, alcohol, fusels, leafy (dryish autumn leaves). Unbelievably sweet at first, syrupy, but again with this nutty, bitterish-leafy rounding. Alcohol (what did you expect?) dominating it all. Syrupy feel, sticky, utterly heavy bodied. Convincing to style, even if they managed to make it more sweet than the Germans would have done.

jookos (3494) - FINLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Med deep red, brownish hue, clear. Malty. Some sweet nuttyness, ripe fruityness, malty strong lager charactery nose. Med full bodied, malty sweets, good bitters, soft smooth. Malty, slight herbals from the hops. Some earthyness. Not much, but some abv pushing through. Quite a nice robust intensive malty lager drink.Quite nice, could do another bottle easy.

Calisky (1665) - ALSACE, FRANCE - FEB 6, 2015
Courtesy of Jaghana. Only my 2nd eisbock Couleur ambrée sombre, mousse qui disparait. Nez puissant de caramel légèrement brulé et malt d’orge. Gout malt d’orge, caramel legement cuit, note d’alcool et sucre avec note fruits noirs. Corps un peu huileux. Fin caramel et fruits noirs cuits. Nickel comme bière.

wolffish (353) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
La nouvelle image fait du bien à la bouteille mais le produit, quant à lui, est très "flat", autant aux yeux qu’en bouche. Trop d’alcool en finale mais somme tout très respectable. J’aurais pu facilement confondre avec un genre de scotch ale bien houblonne...

Speedy_Charly (136) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Brune avec une mince et fugace mousse beige. Odeur de caramel, réglisse, cérales, avec pointes d’alcool en arrière plan. Avec toutes ces arômes sucrées, je m’attendais à un liquide sirupeux, mais non, c’est presque aqueux. Sucrée, presque ad nauseam, elle passe très vite en bouche ne laissant qu’une mince trace d’amertume houblonneuse et des vapeurs d’alcool pour rappeler son passage. Une bière à boire tempérée, au bond du feu après une longue journée d’hiver.

Beardbeerman (256) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
341ml bottle poured into a snifter around 10 degrees. Pours a deep copper robe with rich fiery highlights topped by about a finger of tanned roughly structured head. Carbonation is medium-sized and easy noticeable. Retention is average and lacing is timid. The nose is warm of toasted cereal, toffee, vanilla, liquor (brandy) with some alcohol backbone. On the tongue, you get a rich and dense caramelized malt with toasted nuts paired with a smooth liquorish brandy-like body. The finish is warm and pleasant with still, a good alcohol presence all the way to the end. Perfect beer for a cold winter day after a long walk or to go with a slice of your favorite fruit cake.
