jercraigs (9840) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2016
2016-03-18. Lightly hazy dark amber body small beige head. 3+ Aroma is interesting, light honey and wood. Sweet overall impression. Pleasant caramel touched malt. Flavour is on the sweet side, honey and caramel character with wood touches. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable but a touch cloying after a while. 7/4/7/3/14 Bottle shared by St. John’s Gambit.

Overheard: "Which one was he?"
"Err ... Starke Pils was the henchman in that show..."

Deep amber pour with tan head. Sweet, boozy nose - bourbon, juicy. Noticeable bourbon barrel influence. Low carbonation, sweet throughout. Not a disaster, tasty.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy dark amber to brown color. Mild aroma of caramel with traces of honey. Good body strength, medium body strength, a bit malty, a bit sweet, possible traces of honey but not really evident.
Drinkable beer, a bit boozy, not exceptional.

Ferris (12729) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle - Some mellow cherry and malty notes, lite Apple notes and sweetness. Caramel, light cherry and almost Barleywine like. Light boozy notes but there is some odd fruity sweetness. I would have never have guessed a braggot.

tom10101 (5289) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle (650 ml). From Thomas, thanks! Dark brown with a small beige head and no lacing. Aroma is of honey, sweetness notes ,caramel, alcohol and figs. Taste is quite sweet with honey, caramel, alcohol, figs and light soy sauce. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Sticky sweet finish. A bit harsh and not much complexity. Nothing off though and somewhat tasty.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
I love the bees wax dipped neck.. Smells great. Nice apple and cantaloupe aroma. Big sweet aroma, some bourbon barrel, wooden and watercress. Alcohol is well hidden. Smooth, waxy and honey finish. Tasty.

sulawang (1031) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
Visual: Lightly sealed with wax, adding a nice touch of exquisiteness despite it’s very affordable price. It’s also labeled by according the year it was brewed and barrel-aged for good measure. Pours medium-dark brown with barely any head, thin ringed micro CO2 retention, visible steady streams. Nose: aromatic honeyed caramel malts, very inviting. (9/10)-aromatic strength. Attack: malty-honey-(9/10)-sweetness, silky-fizzy mouthfeel, Mid-palate: (4/10)-mellow alcohol detection (MAIN) caramel malts, honey, brown sugar (MILD) fig, soy sauce Finish: fading alcohol, malts, Summary: Similar to Innis & Gunn sweet but with more depth, alcohol, and bit of Belgium brune mixed in. It’s a bit thinnish in the texture department due to the lack of CO2 but overall the taste profile is very nice.
