RRistow12 (435) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark ruby amber with nice whitish fluffy head. Not a very robust aroma. Fairly sweet smelling with a little caramel and biscuits. Taste is moderately sweet with almost no bitterness. Flavors of caramel, toffee, biscuits, nuts, maple syrup, earthy flavors. Sticky on the palate. Excellent alt beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

matbigrey (93) - Mascouche, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2015
341 ml bottle. Dark ruby color with very high carbonation. 1-2 finger beige head. Malty aromas at first, caramel and a hoppy feel that mostly comes from the magnum hops I guess.. Taste is quite the same, very malty yet not overwhelming. The high carbonation helps the taste that could feel quite dull in my opinion. For a 72 IBU beer, this is not too bitter, the grain are balancing this beer very well. Sticky warm aftertaste. Had my doubts about it but I was wrong. A bit simple but well brewed beer overall! cheers!

jamaty (1237) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Marrón oscura. Densa y turbia. 2 dedos de espuma ocre que dejan una película de medio centímetro imborrable. Aroma complejo. Fruto seco. Caramelo. En boca predominio dulce, con rica base de caramelo. Pero no queda ahí. Frutos secos siguen. Y un final bien amargo, que perdura.

DomD (169) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2015
Poured from bottle. Aroma of bread dough. Pours a cloudy red with white head. Medium bitter taste. Medium body, sticky texture, with a bitter somewhat dry finish. Very nice and hoppy.

Metalflake (35) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
375ml bottle, bought at the grocery store. Poured into a lager glass, deep orange-brown in colour and a solid 2cm beige head. Lovely lacing on the glass. Strong malt profile, with whiffs of raisins, currants and hops. Medium-bodied mouthfeel, lively carbonation, sweet malty taste with enough bitterness to balance it out, and an aftertaste of dried fruits. Delicious.

Drake (10501) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2015
New England Bucket List Trip #191. C&C 750 mL bottle from State Line. "Smells like I need some seltzer and I could make an egg cream out of that." Says a good friend. Pours a hazy orange with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, chocolate, raisin. Taste is raisin, toffee, chocolate, dark fruits, herbal hops. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

Beardbeerman (256) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
Pours a deep copper topped by two fingers of coarse tanned head showing moderate carbonation, retention and lacing properties. The nose is caramel but also displays fruity elements like apples and pineapples. The taste follows the same path through a medium body and a light bitter finish where the pineapple slowy pushes back the sweetness of the malts. Decent brew overall, cheers!

9 février 2014 Épais col crémeux qui dure dans le temps..bonnes arômes au nez par contre le gout s’estompe rapidement et ne laisse que l’amertume en bouche. Bonne rousse dans la moyenne.

Excalibur123 (263) - Soria, SPAIN - JAN 27, 2015
Vierte ámbar oscuro con buena cabeza de espuma beige que ofrece retención media, aromas a caramelo, albaricoque, pan tostado y herbales; en boca entrada potente con amargor equilibrado que se hace más fuerte en el retrogusto, notas a caramelo y malta tostada, largo y seco pos gusto en una interesante cerveza bien compensada y compleja.
