COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially aged with lightly toasted Oak, we’ve carefully crafted this festive seasonal to capture the warmth of an old, iron-stove Oakhouse. With subtle hints of vanilla and a deep amber hue, this rich winter lager is ideal alongside succulent stew or piping hot roast. All you need now is plenty of firewood. And matches.

It was actually pretty damn good beer. It had quite a thick flavour to it. Head was white and hanged around for while. It was pretty smooth, no alchoholic taste to it at all at the end, which is what you would expect from beer 5.0% over alcohol in most ceases, but not this one. Has a nutty taste, rich texture, really enjoyable beer.

Eructoblaster (2948) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Can - 473ml. Amber body with heavy carbonation and a thin white foamy/bubbly head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with corny, grassy, and some flowery hints. Its boring corny taste carries some subtle woody notes and ends with a short bittersweety finish. Very ordinary.

Strangebrewer (829) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
bottle. Poured clear amber with an average white. Light malt aroma with a coriander note. Medium weight with a thick mouthfeel. Malt flavour with sweet brown sugar notes and a spicy hint, some slight woodiness. Very long finish when you just want it to be over. Blah.

Une seule bouteille annoncée à moitié prix au dépanneur du coin, je m’lance. Elle est dorée et voilée et une charmante petite mousse la garnit. Le pain d’épice est ma première impression olfactive. La cannelle qui tourne autour de la cassonade. Il y a des senteurs de gravlax, comme une odeur de cabane à pêche blanche. Son goût est près des arômes. Du caplan qui se prend pour un bonbon en forme de poisson, ceux que mon grand-père m’offrait. Ça picote la langue. Donc, c’était ça. (731-080713)

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle. 5.5%. Clear copper coloured pour with a bubbly white head. . Aroma is caramel malts, vanilla, mild oaky notes. Not at all expected from a macro lager, esp. MolsonCoors. Taste is more of the same, all balanced into a killer winter seasonal. This is a welcome addition to any Christmas fireplace gathering. Kudos where kudos are due.

DuffMan (6439) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2013
Botle. Medium blonde body, average white head. The aroma is softly oaky, not overbearing, with underlying cereals. Pale malt backbone with assertive woody oak that does not overpower. Much more balanced than Innis & Gunn oaked lagers, with less sweetness and a drier finish. Don’t get me wrong-- it did not "wow" me, but if you’re going to oak a beer made with pale malts, then this is the better way to go (i.e. tone down the oak).

TaktikMTL (5628) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Maxi (Saint-Léonard, QC). Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel avec une pointe boisée. Apparence: La couleur est dorée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel et d’épices avec une pointe de vanille. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’épices en arrière goût. (Rating #4671)

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color lager with a medium size foamy head with medium retention and not much lacing. Aroma of light vanilla with light caramelized sugar is OK. Taste is also dominated by light caramelized sugar with some light vanilla notes and very subtle oak notes. Body is light with medium carbonation. Not bad but not great either. Not sure who they are trying to convert with this offering

clear amber colour. muted aroma. slight woody note but not much else.light body, fast flavour, a hint of tannins and esters of nutmeg and cinnamon. boring but not the worst of their beers.
