Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours a bruin body with an off white head. Sweet malty body with toffee, caramel and some light fruit tones. Big apple and apricot sweetness, a hint of spice. Sweet vinous warmth and a nice chewy body. Soft carbonation and a light fruit sweetness. Nice offering.

Calisky (1249) - 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.

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...

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 (194) - 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.

Franckg (195) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Arômes de canne à sucre, caramel, réglisse et houblon. Pas mauvaise mais le goût de sucre est trop dominant. Peut-être qu’un vieillissement pourrait être bénéfique. C’est à essayer.

HippyHop (336) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours Jurrasic Park amber with virtually no head/retention. Nose is caramel, roasted grain, alcohol, molasses. Taste is caramel and molasses, ripe prunes/stone fruit, spice, some alcohol. Mouthfeel is heavy, syrupy, as it should be. Good interpretation of the style.

hopdog (9327) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle. Poured a deeper amberish color with an off white head. Nutty, some fruitiness, caramel, and some sugary sweetness. Alcohol content well hidden. Found it funny that Damico was drinking this exact beer at almost the exact same time even though we were 100s of miles apart.
