Pours a deep amber with a nice white head. Aroma is mostly caramel and spices. Flavor is caramel, spices, toasty cereal, roasted malt. Good herbal and floral hops finish. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. Alright. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
600 mL bottle. This one has a slight spiciness in both the nose and flavour from the rye. The hops bring a little earthiness. Well constructed, but nothing exciting. I would buy more Beau’s if they’d sell in something besides 600 mL bottles. pushkinwow (2910) - Ottawa, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
Tap at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2013. Might as well have a local brewery and the host of Oktoberfest as rating #1500. Dark amber with a biege head that for whatever reason looked pretty great in a plastic cup (might have been in comparison to all the cask ales). Fresh and light hops, some peat, some caramel and spice with a bit of toffee (sweet). Moderate+ carbonation and mild+ body, dry, spicy, decent.

Part of their 2013 Oktoberfest 4-pack at the LCBO. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a creamy off-white head, great retention leaving thick foamy lace all-around. Rye, darker malts scent with floral and caramel notes. The rye is quite present in the taste, but this is where the hop shows up with a grassy finish. Some decent bitterness lingers. Some fruitiness appears as well, to blend things. Not my favourite style, but well-done and glad I could try No. 14 of this series. Wish they brought out the Dr. Jekyll too. bdettweiler (57) - KITCHENER, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
Slightly clear copper colour with thick beige head that leaves a fair bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of rye malts and floral hops and a hint of spice, muted at first, but increasing as the head slowly settles down. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, the taste is rye malts and earthy, slightly spicy peppers with a little citrus hops lurking in the background, but coming forward as the beer warms slightly. Long, balanced finish with bitter hops and earthy malts.

2013/10/06 - Pours a dark, translucent, copper colour with a soapy off white head that lingers. Aroma is caramel malts, floral hops and mild citrus. Rather muted. Taste is caramel malts, floral hops and a peppery, bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel and carbonation are medium with a drying finish. Not bad, but nothing spectacular.

600ml bottle from Oktoberfest pack. Pours dark copper colour with quickly disappearing head. Slight floral aroma, but nothing too much. Medium bodied with malty peppery flavours.

600 mL bottle. Pours amber with a frothy white cap. Rye and hop spices intermingle with a hint of caramel malt sweetness, cedar, applesauce and prune fruit notes. Slightly sweet but reasonably balanced. Moderate body and carbonation level. Nice complexity. sseb69 (1954) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
Bouteille 600 ml. 7%. Couleur ambrée foncée, reflets orangés, mousse beige qui colle à la paroi. Arôme d’alcool et de céréales. En bouche, notes de seigle, poivre doux, malt, houblon et la finale s’étend avec une amertume légère qui donne soif. Très bonne. pootzboy (1815) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 Bottle - pours a hazed copper-red with a decent 3 inger off white frothy cap that laces well. Aroma is modest but there is some spicy rye notes and light noble herbal notes - almost like a spicy Altbier. Flavour is intense but 2 dimensional - the big pearl hop infusion doesn’t obliterate the rye spiciness and other malts until the finish where the hops break away a bit and you get a malty-earthy discernment. An oddball brew but intense - a unique tale on a roggenbier that comes off like an Altbier in charcter - some will like it if they appreciate altbiers, I did.
