rauchbier (3732) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, - MAY 7, 2002
Moderate rocky head with good lacing on top a deep red brown ale. Aromas of yeast, dough and berries. Tastes like a chewy fruitcake with hints of blackcurrant, cherry and a faint licorice note. Excellent mouth coating finish that never gets cloying. A top beer.

AleRider78 (450) - - APR 10, 2016
Poured a thick 1/2" foamy light brown head. Has a dark brown almond colour. Nicely carbonated and ok lacing. Aromas of light malts and hints of vanilla. Flavours of strong roasted malts and mild chocolate like flavours as well. Somewhat bitter. Still goes down nicely, does not seem like a beer of 9% abv. Good stuff.

Turboninja (427) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 1, 2016
Bottle@home, from Constantinoís, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong slightly pungent aroma with dark fruits like raisin and plum, some cherry notes. Dark amber color with medium light beige head and hazy liquid. Strong taste with dark slightly roasted fruits and malts, a hint of banana and some artificial rubbery notes. Averagely balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with dark fruits and malts. Medium body with strong carbonation. Overall, a bit lo fidelity feeling from really high carbonation and somewhat simple and artificial taste.

Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: deep dark brown beer with no carbonation and small ivory head. Smell: caramel malt and brown sugar domination. Candied notes. Really sweet and fruity. Taste: full body with caramel malt and brown sugar. Really intensive body. Good attenuation and quiet drinkable. Total respect of the style. Aftertaste: alcohol and caramel.

Docavey (41) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Tasted from the 750 ML bottle with Marc. It was very dark with a tall head, almost like a Guiness. Roasted malt with a hint of cocoa and coffee flavors. Easier to draw no than the 9% alcohol would suggest. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Subliminal64 (81) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
Taken from a sampler pack. Cellared 1 year. Another great beer by another great Canadian Brewery Smells like a Belgian Tripel/Quad. Very sweet, with alcohol undertones. Pours a dark brown/red colour. Head at beginning similar to Guinness, but it almost dissapears by the end. Taste is very sweet almost sugary. No booze flavour. Good amount of carbonation. Little aftertaste, especially for a 9% beer. Overall I was very happy with this beer. I will be purchasing as a gift pack, but not on a 6 pack of its own. MB The Beer Bearon
