neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, - DEC 24, 2012
750 mL bottle at Volo, served in a stem glass. Pours clear reddish amber with a moderate tan head that fades to a thin cover, leaving a small amount of fine lace. The nose has caramel malts, grain, fruit and soft hops. The flavour is slightly sweet, with grainy malts, along with earth, fruit and a hint of dust. The finish is long and malty. On the palate, it is medium in body with a slightly dry texture. Overall, a nice alt with elegant malts; it could have been a little more complex, though. 2012-06-05

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 (9999) - 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 (231) - 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!

carlm87 (10) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
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 (247) - 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.

vadie (948) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
Un alt super. Rouge avec un grand col beige. L’arôme très malté, du pain grillé, du caramel et les rains sec. Le goût et le même. Un peu sucré d’abord puis une finition sec et super bien équilibré avec un amertume moyen.

Zoret (132) - Badalona, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2014
Cervesa maltosa però equilibrada amb un final amarg notable però gens molest. Tot es mostra en la seva justa expressió segons l’estil. Birrot!

Stoned99 (362) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
341ml bottle bought directly from the brewery. Thanks Guillaume. Aroma : caramel, molasses, earthy. App : clear amber work with small beige head. Taste and palate : light-medium body, oily, smooth, medium sweetness, light bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Overall : not bad but so sweet that half the bottle would be enough.
