Kauge (1617) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2016
Can at Tallboys in Toronto. Lightish brown with huge creamy white head. Bready sour aroma and flavour, rather unpleasant. Roast in the background. Watery on the palate. Didn’t bother taking much more notes... And only now I read it’s brewed with wine. Haha, might explain some things, I thought it had gone off. Anyway, an unpleasant failure in my book.

Sweet milk chocolate aroma. Opaque ruby colour. Flavours of chocolate and raisin; short bitter finish. Medium in body and carbonation. A really enjoyable beer.

czar (7824) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
unclear light brown reddish with a small light beige cap, some retention and sticky lacing. roasted fruitiness, burnt caramel, nuttiness, bit of coffee, red grapes but ends up tasting like red wine, cheap wine, touch of acidity, cardboard, chalk, minerals, booze. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, grassy-peppery finish. just like an ackward dogfish brew. meh.

mmacleod75 (112) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
Poured dark reddish brown with medium frothy head. Nutty malt aroma with some sweetness. Well balanced nut, slight wine, and malt. Still had a bit of sweetness, and slight bitterness, but very nicely balanced. Nothing was overpowering. Quite enjoyed it.

solidfunk (7695) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Pours clear copper with dying head and medium lacing. Only thing persistent in this is nut. Some bitterness, pretty high carbonation. Couldn’t detect any wine here. On tap at Bar Hop.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
On tap. Dark ruby pour, thin tan head. Aroma has dark fruit (I assume from the merlot), a little tobacco, vanilla. Light and oily. Pretty sweet throughout with a clean finish. It’s nice but unchallenging.

jjarovi (55) - markham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2012
On tap at 3030 - not that good, may have been off? Very light and acidic quality, almost medicinal? Thought about not reviewing but was told by the owners that is how it is supposed to be. Not good.

Tessic (1041) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
This porter poured a deep black colour with a big, foamy, tan coloured head. Little lacing. Scents include molassass, caramel, lightly roasted malts and a little coffee. First sip was flavourful with swet caramel notes, coffee, light smoke and a tiny bit of cocoa. Finish is roasty with a little bitterness on the palate. Delicious.

Strangebrewer (1180) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2012
can from brewery 5.5%. Poured clear chestnut brown with a creamy mocha head. Malty caramel nose. Creamy thick mouthfeel. Full flavour, caramel malt and a nice herbal bitterness. A bit astringent finish.

PatIrish (183) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2012
Malty, nutty, soft bitterness. White creamy head that sustained to the last sip. Pleasantly surprised.
