Pours a clear copper without any bubbles. Aroma of cooked apples, brown sugar and alcohol. Taste is sweet and almost cloying but also a little tart. Flavors of apple cider (duh) and not much else. Alcohol shows up a lot in the finish. Interesting but not the best in class.

[4470-20120608] Bottle. Toasted oats cereal aroma drizzled in apple maple syrup. Clear, brown amber body with not lasting head. Boozy super-sweet apple flavour. Medium body. Sugary and sickly syrupy is quite overwhelming, but it is fun to try. (7/3/6/3/11) 3.0

Super viscous dark hazy brown pour. Thick aroma of hoey, apples, baked apple pie, all envelopped in a light tinge of smoke. The mouthfeel is very thick, the legs on the glass are incredible. The alcohol is there but its well hidden. Super sweet,and a touch tart finish. Incredible stuff, wow!

2012-06-08. Dark orange amber body, light legs. 3+ Boozy aroma at first, mild apple character, hints at a sort of wood like tannic character - stems? Flavour is sweet, fruity apples but a different quality to it - sort of a caramelized apple, or stewed apples? Undertones of the wood like character as in the aroma. Fruity apple character alternates from prominent, to secondary. Modest alcohol in the lingers. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3+ More interesting in some ways than the Art du Givre that preceded it, but I think I prefer the smooth drinkability of the AdG. Bottle at Mondial, Montreal

375 ml bottle sahred by beastiefan2k, by way of his friend Artem. The is pour is clearish darker golden, some light ruby highlights, with no head, and a still appearance. Looks like a glass of liquer, in fact has noticeable legs on the swirl. The aroma is syrup sweetness, a bunch of fresh apple fruit, and a bit of weird plastic. The taste features a nice soft apple sweet flavor, really well integrated and put together. In the finish, there is also a tannic, apple skin and seed flavor which stands a bit apart from the core apple fruit. However, this added element really cuts the sweetness in the finish, and adds to my enjoyment. The palate is medium bodied, coats the mouth with the sweetness. Alcohol is present, though integrated, giving it more of a warming character. I have very limited exposure to this style, though I really enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing Eugene.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2011
(50 ml, vintage 2009) La robe est belle et ambrée. Le nez est confortable de pommes et de raisins de Corinthe. Les flaveurs de pommes sont légèrement caramélisées. Une acidité vient trancher l’excédent des sucres. L’alcool pique les papilles. En bouche, le liquide est suave et accaparent. La finale est liquoreuse, bien gorgée par des fruits riches.

375mL gifted by my friend Artem while on a trip in Montreal but I was too busy to do the cider tour. I may also have a very different batch than the previous raters accounting for rating difference. I really like this ice cider and it is very different from other ice ciders I have tried. First , the color is dark reddish copper, akin to old sherry. I get legs on the glass. Aroma is warming and sweet but very original. Blinded I may not be able to tell its actually a cider. There are many other elements on top of the sweet apple. Its toasty and almost bourbon-esque, slightly aged alcohol aspect to it (oxidation). Just works great, more than apple. Mouthfeel is thicker, viscous on the cheeks, and thick. Coats the throat going down. Flavor is really nice as well. Again sweet apple covered by aged, oxidized alcohol. Contained sweetness with a offsetting earthy character (Joe may be getting the same character and calling it vegetal but for me its a positive). Doesn’t finish as sweet as many other ice ciders. I really liked this, the best ice cider since my first ice cider. Cantillon copita glass.

Deep toasted amber colour. The aroma is really lovely. Intensely sweet with a lovely bright dried apple nose. Intense and lightly peppery with a bit of brandied character. The flavour is quite unusual though... lightly vineous with a fairly prominent apple skin tannic character. A bit of astringency with a long lingering slightly hot flavour. A bit of spiciness. There is a strange vegetal character that is really weird in an ice cider. A bit of light yeastiness as well. Too green and strange for me.
