3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice sweet malty aroma and pours a rich hazy reddish brown.
Large head that dissipates fairly quickly. Some sweetness, but the overall impression is of malt with some hoppiness. Sweetness lingers, but not long enough to be cloying. A very, very nice brew.

Pours clear, dark, coppery brown, with a small, frothy tan head. Very little retention. Aroma of whole wheat bread, caramel, yeast. Taste is sweet, earthy, hints of roasted oats and molasses. Full bodied, with a thick, oily texture. Carbonation virtually non-existant. Finishes with a lingering sweetness and oily texture. Good brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is roasty Munich malts, caramel, fig, and light yeast. Taste is roasty malts rich with a well balanced bitterness. Not too complex but interesting enough. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours and looks like A&W Root Beer. Short lived cream coloured head. Major notes of hay on the nose. Medium to light mouth feel with low effervescence. More bitter than sweet.
It leaves a slightly bitter Sarsaparilla after taste. Also seems to cause a bit more gas like one of those ’light’ beers. A definite pass next time.

Wow, poured a heavily carbonated foamy brownish head. A nice dark brown appearance. Aromas of strong roasted malts and caramel. Flavour is also of roasted malts, but with a touch of coffee and bitter sweetness, spices. Also a bit of dry fruits (plums, raisins). Alcohol is also noticeable in the aroma. Aftertaste is a bit bitter. Not bad.

ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Dark red color with medium, tan head. Aromas of malts, roasted caramels.

Une grande tête marron sur une bière marron/orange brumeux. L’arôme est fort du sucre brun avec du levure et les raisins sec. C’est très sucré en bouche avec un goût du sucre brun et rasins sec. C’est aussi très malté.

Bottle from czar, thanks! Pours a medium brown with some reddish highlights like advertised. Head is moderately high and sticks to the side of the glass leaving some really nice lacing patterns. Nose is of raisins, nuts and light alcohol. Taste is sweet but also bitter so balance is preserved. Flavors include raisins again (raisin bread even), some light green apples and caramel. Body is full, carbonation medium and mouthfeel not quite syrupy but at least sticky. Not bad at all, actually really good but I wish they would package it in a smaller bottle.
