pushkinwow (2495) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2011
750ml bottle from Omni. Brown with a light biege frothy head that settles fairly quickly. Caramel, buckwheat honey, vanilla and oak, rum cake and bread - have not smelt anything quite like this. Unfortunately the rest doesn’t quite match up. Thinner then I would have hoped but still decent, oak, rum, good carbonation, somewhat sweet and becomes more so with plum and grape notes on the finish along with booze and oak/vanilla. An up and down beer - finish and aroma are very good but letdown in the middle. Worth trying.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
750ml bottle. Pours milky brown with a tan head that leaves a nice lace. nose of apple, vanilla, wood, honey and a hint of paint thinner...oddly not in a bad way. Quite sweet in the mouth with a heavy maltiness with honey and vanilla. Finishes bittersweet. A little too viscous on the palate for me.

SlovakSniper (4812) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
75 cl bottle. The look : Mahogany with a small tan head. Lacing all around the glass. The nose : sweet malts, light touch from the barrel, vanilla for sure, notes of fruits. The taste : caramel and honey sweetness with the quiet strenght of the oak. The mouthfeel : body is well rounded, bubbles are there and the texture is slightly oily. The finale : soft caramel and honey finish with a kiss from the wood. Overall : pleasant to drink late at night.

Bouteille 750ml, "Grande Réserve" vieillie 4 mois en fût de chêne. De couleur ambrée-brune foncée et claire. Nez boisé (fût de chêne), malté de caramel toffee sucré, moyen de fruits (prunes sucrées, traces de pruneaux et de raisins) et de vanille avec des notes d’alcool liquoreux, de miel et d’herbes. Moyenne-ronde en buche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture légèrement liquoreuse et aux petites notes huileuses. Moyen goût fruité (prunes sucrées, léger de dates, traces de raisins) accompagné d’un goût de vanille et d’un goût boisé (fût de chêne) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel toffee sucré avec notes rôties et terreuses ainsi qu’un léger goût de miel et de notes de pain grillé. Parallèlement, un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant s’installe jusqu’en finale où l’on y retrouve également une légère amertume de houblon herbeux, des traces de noix grillées ainsi qu’un léger regain de goût de fût de chêne et des traces de fumée de bois. Post-goût moyen-long, légèrement amer de rôti, d’alcool et de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût boisé (fût de chêne) et fruité (pelures de prunes).
