very nice aroma of roasty malts, chocolate and sweet fruit (cherries?). the flavour was quite nice too, a little on the light side but very good for an ontario beer.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2011
Old rate. 355ml bottle from my cellar, aged for a couple of years. Having had this before I can’t say aging has done anything remarkable for this beer. Tastes much as it did when first bought. Pours a deep, dark copper colour. Aroma of raisins, and lots of malts. Has a hoppy and sweet flavour with moderate complexity. Alcohol appears towards the end but in balance. Decent.

lukin (568) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2010
341 bottle. Pours deep red-brown with thin white head. Nice aroma of berries, malt, maybe raisins? Taste is complex and sweet, with slight bitter finish. Has that characteristic Wellington taste that I can’t quite put my finger on. Great winter-warmer, and stands alongside the Imperial Stout as this brewers best work.

mcberko (14067) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
341mL bottle from manuchampions, pours cloudy golden amber with a small head. Aroma of oak, bourbon, vanilla, and a little coffee. Flavour is quite oaky, with vanilla, a bourbon aged quality and caramel malts. Quite good.

Spab (3335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
341 ml bottle from Beer Store. Pours a clear dark brownish ruby with small off-white to light tan head. Aroma is fairly mild with nuttiness and sweet fruit. Flavour is quite malty - caramel and nutty with some sweet dark fruit, light chocolate and roast.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
Solid strong beer with a pretty complex malty flavour and an alcoholic bite. Wouldn’t drink large amounts of it, but it’s well worth trying.

Dark, from a bottle, not a smooth taste, the taste seems a little all over the place. I wouldnt buy this beer again

Une fois versé, le liquide dévoile une robe rouge rubis. La tête mousseuse se transforme rapidement en un mince anneau. Les arômes sont d’abord et avant tout ceux d’un malt doux : les grains me semblent davantage chocolatés que caramélisés. Une présence fruitée se fait sentir et ce, avec modération. Aucune trace d’alcool et de houblons. Le goût est fidèle aux parfums avec des saveurs qui rappellent en subtilité les fruits enrobés de chocolat. On note une présence plus évidente du caramel. Encore une fois, tout se joue aussi du côté des grains maltés : aucunes saveurs notables en provenance des houblons. En bouche, le liquide déçoit quelque peu avec un corps et une texture qui manquent de robustesse. La finale est agréable sur des notes douces de malt et sur des notes légèrement amères de grains rôtis.
