HippyHop (609) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
Bomber bottle from 2014. This stuff has aged nicely. Lots of dark fruity and roasty goodness. Surprising but pleasant hints of chocolate, along with caramel and tobacco and toasted grain. Moderate bitterness on the finish. Alcohol is surprisingly concealed. Texture is a bit thin surprisingly. Overall still solid. Nice winter sipper ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasting at Matts
Dark brown color with small brownish head. Boozy stale beer aroma. The flavor is also quite stale, too much alcohol, and the body thin; I feel like Im drinking industrial beer, not bad though.

mcberko (16051) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
650mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown / black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out English malts, some dark fruits and dusty earthy notes. Flavour brings out bready malts and dark fruits, but its pretty laid back. Not a very cohesive beer, but its pleasant and inoffensive. Okay.

yourilevesque (1659) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
Dguste en compagnie de Marco aprs un vieillissement de 7 ou 8 mois en cellier. La bire est brune et surmonte dune mousse dun blanc cass fourni. Nez sucr de raisins secs, de fruits confits et de rsine de tabac. Des malts affirms ajoutent une touche notable de caramel. En bouche, le liquide est la fois vineux, chocolat, malt et encore ponctu par cet arme de blague de tabac. Densit et effervescence moyennes, lalcool est plutt mal dissimul. Je ne suis pas encore assez familier avec le style pour dterminer de faon certaine si cest cette bire que jaime peu ou le genre auquel elle appartient. Je rajusterai mon rating au besoin.

vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Marron trs sombre, avec une moyenne robe tan. Larme des fruits noirs, du chocolat, du malt anglais, et un peu du sucre. En bouche cest un peu sucr et assez complexe avec du malt, fruit et chocolat. La finale est peu amer, est cest bien quilibr.

kathouse (1748) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Cherry colored with a clingy tan foam. Nice character with flavors of vanilla, dates, and figs. Not fruity but sugary with a touch of molasses.

Hammy78 (962) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle given to me by my step brother. Pours like a wine, reddish brown, finger of of white head, clingy sticky lacing. Nose is sweet caramel, wine like, tastes sweet, sugary, a touch bitter, raisin, a little biscuit, malt, burnt caramel. Nice complexity, would likely see some sort of barrelled version.

ChrisSc (464) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2015
650ml bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours very dark amber with ruby tint. Zero head. Aroma has some sweet element to it- molasses and caramel. Its also earthy and nutty. Some leather notes. Dark fruits. Taste mild sweetness dominates. Subtle bitterness to balance. Body is medium-full. Very soft carbonation. Smooth texture. Longer finish. Fairly decent old ale, but lacks some if the complexity I was hoping for. Body was a little on the weak side.

SuperTiti33 (864) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
En fût au brewhouse. Brune. Ronde. Entré sucré. Caramel. Légèrement saline. Un peu épicé. Belle amertume. Finale légèrement boisé. Bien.
