0.591 tap. Dark, crimson color and a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of dark malts, caramel, fruits, and brown sugar. Taste of malts, caramel, burnt grains. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is a little alcoholic. Overall the beer is mediocre, too alcoholic.

Draught @ Brothers Beer Bistro, Ottawa. Pours slightly hazy ruby / copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel, with notes of fruit and subtle touches of hops and yeast. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and fruit, with notes of nuts and hops and estery touches. Sweetish, slightly fruity aftertaste. Low carbonation. Okay but not top notch. 150715

Pretty much all you need to know about this beer is right on the bottle, which I really dig. First whiff smells amazing: dates, figs, prunes, raisins, and a little bit of spice from the cinnamon. But this beer loses its head faster than (oh hell this is unintentionally topical) Ann Boleyn at....a Thomas Cromwell dinner party? (...good save....) Anyway it’s off with the head and off with the aroma at the same time, which is kind of a bummer. That being said this beer tastes beautiful, though it is more carbonated than I would’ve expected. Overall it’s still really nice, especially as the weather gets colder.

Une brune-ambrée, quelque peu voilée. La mousse, elle, elle est absente. Les odeurs sont difficiles à saisir. Un mélange de pas frais et de sucré. Par moment ont perçoit des effluves épicées. Le goût n’est pas tellement mieux. Ça goûte le caramel, c’est un peu épicé, c’est légèrement amer et ça termine sur une note minérale. Pour moi, ce n’est pas réussi. Pourquoi autant d’ingrédients? Mais, qui suis-je? (1178-080814)

A little short on aroma. However, a great looking beer with a delicious blend of date/ raisin and cinnamon resulting in a almost hazelnut flavor.
