Lubiere (12935) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
A clear reddish brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with dark fruits, molasses, honey, nice. In mouth, a sweet nutty caramel malt with roasted notes, treacle, plums, interesting. Bottle from LCBO.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle at Ontario Brewing Awards. Deep amber pour. Off-white head. The aroma is sweet and a little bit chewy. A touch of caramel and some sweet fruity character. Lightly earthy with a touch of fruit. Lingering estery character. Pretty nice really.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2012
[4557-20120622] Tap. Boozy toasted malt aroma has a burnt caramel note to it. Clear amber red body with a long-lasting creamy off white head. Sweet grainy malt flavour has a brulee sweetness that is not appealing. Medium body. A little burnt, actually. (6/4+/6/3/12) 3.1
(2012 Summer FOCB @ C’est What, Toronto, ON)

solidfunk (7695) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Strong taste of barley on this one. Good pour with average lacing, brown amber colour. Taste has more barley than honey, a good dose of bitter. Has an odd aroma, a sense of perfume almost. Tap at cloak and dagger.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
Draught at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries, June 22. Pours a hazy amber with a small lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, fruit and grain. Flavour is quite mild, there’s not a lot of flavour -- some malt, grain and honey but it’s pretty "meh". Average bodied. A little too dull for me.

Boutip (5940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear deep amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of medium caramelized malt with light sweet undertones. Taste is quite bland with light honey notes and some caramel malt notes as well. Body is about average with medium carbonation. Bland and average offering – it kind of makes me feel good about not having to drink beers from the early 1800’s everyday.

robinvboyer (4163) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
750ml bottle from the lcbo. Dark amber pour, small beige head. Faint hop aroma, light sweet malts. Pretty boring and basic. The honey imparts a light sweetness, but i think its just adding some color and not much else. The finish is lightly bitter, with some more light cereal malts.

Eructoblaster (3882) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Dark brown body with a thin beige foamy/creamy head. Malty aroma with hoppy, honeyish, and brown sugar hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries oaky and honeyish notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.
