VertBaconStrips (2069) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2009
I have never tasted anything like this before - very unique indeed! Brown beer with a tiny ammount of off-white head that goes to a skim quickly. However, there was excellent lacing during the top half of the tasting. Where is the carbonation? Amora is of sweet roasted malts, a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg and some other mystery flavours. Light taste of alcohol too. Bizarre flavour that I canít quite put my finger on - I like! What the hell is this thing? I did find a lot of roasted malts with some nutmeg and mild pepper and....well, I donít really know. Medium bodied, ok swish and pretty smooth. Middle bitterness and finished sort of dry. A very suprising beer.

Cirrhosis (1200) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Brown body with slight orange showing through, good sized cap appeared during pour but vanished rather fast, a small skiff remained for the rest of the tasting and that skiff did leave so nice lacing behind. What the hell is this smell, Iíve never smelt a beer that even came close to this I swear Iím smelling cream cheese icing?!?!? Tangy, spicy, nutmeg wow is this ever a strange brew, so unique smelling, very nice. Sweet tasting dark malts go down very smooth, medium bodied and with good carbonation. Cinnamon, cream, and other mystery spices are abundant in this malty brew. Very drinkable and very unique, I canít even begin to describe this beer because so different but still very good.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2009
Dark malts, sugary sweetness, some corn in the nose. Clear brown body is topped by a decent off white-tan head that recedes rather quickly to a partial cover and ring with some lacing. Brown sugar sweetness. is offset by dark malts with plenty of hop bitterness. Lasting toasted malts in the aftertaste. Medium body with quite strong carbonation that prickles the tongue and cheeks. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Can purchased at the BCLS at Hellsgate in Apr-09.

georgekessel (68) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2008
Can: Purcahsed at 41st & Oat BCLBD. Pours a medium head that quickly fizzes down to a thin, tan head. Deep Orange-brown body. Delicious smells of toasted honey, spices and a sweet smell of hops. This year it tastes a bit more íhoppyí then two years ago. A tad watery but overall quite a nice winter ale. NOW ORGANIC WOO HOO

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2007
Pours a dark brown, with an inviting yet metallic malt aroma and a small creamy head with a bit of lace. Surprisingly substantial taste - not a huge dark malt taste, despite the colour, but definitely some light brown sugar and a LOT of hops. Thin but hoppy aftertaste. Despite the lack of maltiness, the body is not too watery (although itís borderline) and the carbonation is more than adequate. What a surprising beer - the hops pack a wallop! There just isnít quite enough malt to support the hops in this one - thin dark malting disappoint, but the hops are enticing. I will keep my eyes open for more Nelson beers.

presario (4606) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2006
Dark copper but thin looking beer. Thick head is gone faster than you can write "Thick head". Thin aroma with roasted notes and caramel but a little stale or flat. Zesty light body. Similar to the aroma. Some dark spice and woody notes. A bit of a peppery woody finish is the best part of the beer. A little mild and thin of body for my liking.

DuffMan (6633) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2006
This 2006 batch is the first to ever be sold in Alberta, thanks to Dave at Willow Park for bringing it in! Dark brown, clear, modest tan head that recedes fairly quickly. Aromas of toast and brown sugar with a mild smoky element. The roasted malt really is apparent on the palate, but the beer comes off as being quite thin in the end. Not bad though.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2006
(Bottle) Purchased at the Fairfield Plaza, Victoria, BC Liquor Store. Pours a thin, tan head with an orange body. Nose and flavour of toasted brown sugar, nutmeg, caramel and doughy supermarket rolls. Its a tad thin in texture but a decent enough beer for the holidays.

Suttree (5118) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2006
I considered doing a back to back tasting with Cottonwood Endo, for a "Beers named after accidents that cause massive facial injuries" themed pairing, but ultimately decided against it. Mainly because that would be silly. Anyhoo, This one is cloudy brown, with a very thin beige head. Toasty, spicy aroma, with a whiff of cinnamon. Maybe some German chocolate, as well. Flavor is vaguely cola-ish at first, and then some molasses and spice, with notes of pepper, too. I also get a hint of rum that becomes more pronounced as it warms. Plus there is this odd but not unpleasent note of pecan pie, too. Thanks to Oakes for the trade.
