3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized malt with light dry fruits with some light spices including cinnamon are also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by cinnamon with some caramel malt with medium residual sugar notes and some dry fruits notes also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting mix of flavours but lacking a bit fo integration to make it truly remarkable.

Pours a murky brown with a very small head. Aroma has notes of figs, nuts, plums, raisins, and spice. Tasting notes include figs, nuts, plums, sweet malts. This beer tastes more like a bock than an ale! Excellent!!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 mL bottle. Pours a hazy light brown with a short lived white cap. Aromas of dried fruit, nuts, baking spices and caramel malt. Slightly sweet with a lingering spiciness from the hop, only mildly bitter. Strangely thin bodied with moderate plus carbonation. Sticky on the palate. I remember liking this before, but not rating it. Less impressed this time. Not poorly made, just not interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Un coleur rouge/marron avec une petit col beige. L’arôme est un peu épicé avec des fruits noir et plein de cerises (quand il se réchauffe). Le goût est d’abord du malt sucré, avec un peu d’épices, et des fruits noir. La finale est un peu amer.

Slight spicy aroma. Deep clear brown colour. Flavours of dates, nutmeg, cinnamon and apple. Medium body with light carbonation. Damn solid!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’d agree with a earlier comment : dirty brown in colour. Aroma of bread, yeast and some raisin and some white chocolate notes that I do enjoy. On the palate it proves medium bodied, with a slight sweetness of caramel and chocolate flavours and finishes with a slight bite on the finish. Enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dirty brown with a quickly disappearing white top. Aroma is faint nutty and sweetness. Taste is earthy and sickly sweet. Not for me.

6er from the lcbo.
not much going on here, the aroma is quite muted. Light roasted nuts, some light grains. no spices or hops. The finish is again, almost mute. light grains, some light nutiness.....very boring.

355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear mahogany colour with smallish off-white cap. Aroma is bread, caramel, dark fruit and brown sugar. Flavour is quite sweet and full of fruitiness and sugar with some gentle cinnamon and other spice. Body a little lighter than expected. Good.
