sudomorph (487) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a clear caramel/ruby with a a half finger, tan head. Aroma has notes of caramel, fruity esters, dark fruits, and holiday spices. Taste is balanced. Bread, a touch of spices, raisin, caramel, mildly fruity with a touch of warmth on the finish. Low-medium body with medium-high carbonation. Clean and light in the with a bubbly carbonation. Overall tasty. Reminds me of a Christmas beer in taste but with a light, bubbly mouth feel. Not a lot of honey flavour but you get it in the body.

BiereLuc (855) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
Bière à la robe cuivrée / rougeâtre, peu mousseuse et limpide. Le nez est mielleux sur un fond plus «caramel» avec des fruits mûrs parsemés ici et là. En bouche, une certaine amertume caramélisée (style IPA anglaise) s’impose avant de se faire dévorer par l’enrobage de miel. Puis l’amertume resurgit, pour avoir le dernier mot, alors qu’elle s’impose en finale et en arrière-goût. Chaque composante de cette bière est agréable, mais l’ensemble manque de cohésion et de «grandiose»...

VincentDamon (300) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Bière qui présente une couleur rousse, tirant vers le brun, et dont la mousse est généreuse. Nez fruité : raisins secs, cerises, auxquels s’ajoutent des traces de caramel écossais. En bouche, c’est sec, corsé, fruité. Notes de miel. Astringence qui reste à la finale. Un peu particulier...

lesifflebiere (1186) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Bière orange-rouge assez pétillante, offrant des notes en nez des notes de caramel, de fruits confits et de jus de fraises. Un peu piquante en fin de gorgée, elle présente un bel équilibre des épices, du sucré et du fruité annoncés. Elle est un peu mince, et n’est pas exactement subtile ni complexe, mais il s’agit d’une bonne brune à la base, avec un petit twist de plus.

Bottle: Pours hazy, medium brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of honey and bread. Taste is sweet caramel malt and honey. Very bready....some raisin notes. Clingy sweet and spiced.

Un goût prononcé sans arrière fond amer. Petite touche de miel qui reste agréablement en bouche.

Metalchopz (2197) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
Purchased at the SAQ. Pours a deep amber, almost copper colour with a frothy beige head, good retention and patchy foam lace. Aromas are quite sweet with the honey, caramel malts and some darker bread malts (rye), with spices. Eventually, dark fruits come out (raisins, plums) and this enhances the nose. Smooth silky mouthfeel. Thankfully, the taste is not as sweet. More on the roasted malt side of things. Again, bread-like with hints of spices in the finish. This is one that has to breath a bit before it becomes better. Starting to like it near the end.
