Pours a deep brown color with a thin white head. Nose is full of caramel and simcoe hop. Aromas are roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, nuts and a lot of fruity hops. Not that bitter, rather sweet. Full body, low carbonation. Almost a meal-beer ! But a great meal ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Un ballon sur place. Brun acajou comme robe. Enfin, il me semble. Un anneau comme tête de mousse. Nez riche de caramel, de toffee, de noix grillées et de grenache avec des parfums de houblons verts et fruités. Un goût qui donne a priori avantage aux cultivars. Ceci dit, des malts savoureux, caramélisés avec une profondeur chocolatée et une belle pointe de café. En bouche, un liquide moyen-mince avec un pétillement normal et une texture un peu mince. Ceci dit, une façon de faire qui augmente considérablement la buvabilité. Une finale qui est pour moi bien poivré, longue et agréable. Brown ale royalement bien brassé. J’aime.

Une bière brune limpide avec des reflets rougeâtres, un mince col de mousse laisse tomber un rideau de dentelle. Un nez de caramel, de malt grillé, fruité par la pomme et l’abricot. Un goût acidulé, faiblement fruité, par des figues fraîches. Une légère et timide amertume qui réussi tant bien que mal à se faire remarquer. (1060-170414)

Marheb (2309) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
Un liquide qui se scinde en deux et qui se fusionne après plusieurs gorgées. D’un côté, une explosion de brown malt et sucres rôtis et de l’autre une présence juteuse et fruité. Sa complexité et sa rondeur sont vraiment les faits saillants et la différencie des brown américaines plus tranchante.

lefossoyeur (471) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2011
Dark ruby-brown with a thin creamy tan head. Intense aromas of roasted nuts, fruity hops, red fruits, raspberry and caramel. Full body, really nice malt orgy, flavourfull nutty character backed by generous hoppiness and a long, fruity, warming finish. Intense hybrid imperial brown/black barley wine. really enjoyable on this winter day, even if the alcohol is making its way trough my body very fast with this one. On tap at the brewpub, aged 6 months

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2010
In short: A exaggeratedly corpulent sweet beer with a ton of toffee/caramel and fruity hops. Fun sipper.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Dark brown body topped by a small beige head of foam
In long: Nose is has plenty of toffee with fruity hops in the back. Taste is a malt orgy. Extra rich toffee and caramel. You can almost eat this beer with a fork. Carbonation is a bit too soft and the beer feels very syrupy and sticky. Floral and fruity hops lighten things up in the finish. Obviously quite sweet. Alcohol a little apparent which was surprising considering how corpulent the beer was. A fun malt orgy that might be a little too nourishing for its own good. One glass is more than enough. This was a collaboration brew so I’m not sure it will be made again. It might already be gone by the time I enter my rating. If you cannot get the Morning Wood anymore, don’t worry, there is now a blue pill that can really help you.

Lubiere (10496) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2010
A dark reddish brown ale with a thin lacing moka head. A smooth caramel malt aroma with light floral hops, and light vinous notes, meaty and interesting. In mouth, a superb ale with light licorice, maple wood, vinous, barley wine like, smooth c-hops, plain delicious. On tap at brewpub, Sept. 25 2010.

JulienHuxley (3482) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2010
Tap. Clear brown pour, creamy off white head. Aroma is quite toffee - brown ale and only slightly hoppy. Same for the taste. I was surprised at this beer’s massive IBU, the malt they chose was certainly in control of things, the cascade hops were present but not overpowering. If anything this beer was a bit cloying. Overall an interesting brew.

Quevillon (2553) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Drank on tap (10 oz only) at their brewpub, on October 30, 2010. Very dark brown, thin head. Barley malt aroma with notes of caramelized nuts. Sweet taste of barley, very malty with notes of hazelnut, a typical Cheval Blanc bitter aftertaste but far from intense. I have an idea what Morning Wood means, but I did not get any!

En fût. Verre de 12 oz dégusté directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel et d’houblons. Apparence: La couleur est noire opaque.
