Bière au reflet roux foncé à rouge rubis marquée de profonds arômes de caramel et de café soutenus d’un côté végétal houblonné. En bouche, ses saveurs confirment son parfum et s’accompagnent d’une amertume fraîche et souple.

Caramel. Roasted malt, nutty, bitter caramel finish. Very elegant and flavorful red ale.

czar (7723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
on tap at bateau de nuit, qc. clear dark red pour with a nice and reviving off-white head, some retention and lacing. toasted and spicy maltiness - almost rye-like, but also light enjoyable caramel, red fruitiness - hint of acidity, pepper, touch of smoke and coffee, fairly herbal and grassy. moderate carbonation, light body - a tad watery, dry herbal-peppery-grassy finish. more than decent.

En fût au BDT. Couleur brune très foncé au reflets rouge rubis. Arôme de caramel, toffee, un peu de fruits noirs et un peu d’herbes. En bouche, douce, malt caramel, un peu de fumé, un peu d’herbe, toffee. FInale sucrée mais bian balancée par une amertume moyenne. Excellente Irish Red Ale.

Draught at TdD Tap Takeover, Wvrst, May 26. Pours a very deep ruby-amber with a small long-lasting frohty off-white head. Aroma of fruit and caramel malt along with some sugary sweetness. Fruity and malty flavour. Average bodied. I didn’t love it, just O.K.

On tap at wvrst. Reddish brown pour, foamy tan head. Aroma is floral and metallic, little hints of yeast, grass, alcohol. Smooth and light. Sweet throughout with a sharp cheese dry finish. Solid but not really blowing my mind. And not worth $8 for a tulip.

Tap at Wvrst. Deep amber pour. Soapy flavor with a bit of malt. Earthy and a little bit bland. Not really my style. Has a bit of earthiness. Meh

Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur brune-rouge et claire. Nez malté de caramel doux, léger de grains de malt rôtis avec des petites notes fruitées (fraises) et de houblon herbeux. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement huileuse. Faibles notes fruitées (traces de confitures de fraises et d’agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût malté de caramel doux avec de très faibles notes fumées ainsi qu’avec des notes de biscuits et de grains de malt rôtis puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes sèches) aux faibles traces terreuses avec des petites notes de noix. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, léger-moyen amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes rôties. (printemps 2007)

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
February 19, 2011 - at Volo Trou du Diable event. Hazy ruby with a solid average frothy off-white head. Dry and dusty floral aroma, it’s vaguely sweet, more like a massively floral ESB - even flour. Taste is a bit boozy, dryly pungent, almost mellow, dusty and a bit minerally; gypsum? not bad, but odd; some rye sharpness. Solid body, weakly carbonated, not astringent, but the mineral character really builds - detracts from the overall.

[3602-20110219] Cask. Grassy hops aroma. Hazy, red amber body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head and lacy lacing. Bitter pencil lead and grassy hops flavour. Medium body. Great balance, not sure why but probably my favourite of the night. (8/4-/9/4/17-) 4.2
(Le Trou du Diable Night @ Volo, Toronto, ON)
