Boutip (6087) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2004
Bottle: Poured a medium brown colored beer with a small head with little retention. Aroma is comprised of strong malts and it seems like you can almost smell the bitterness in this one. Taste is unsurprisingly bitter with a touch of roasted malt. This tasted not so unlike Fullers 1845, which is no bad thing.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2004
Bottle. Caramelly malt aroma, dark brown body. Fizzy tan head. Heavy mouthfeel, but balanced - there is a lot of malt here, but the subtle hop bitterness and crispy mouthfeel make a nice combination. I enjoy these sort of malty scotch ales and this is a great example.

jercraigs (10078) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2004
Bottle, LCBO. Nice brown body with a good long lasting beige head. Aroma has some earthy-smokey notes along with some caramel malt and a touch of brown sugar. Flavour is quite nice with lots of sweet malt and with underlying hints of the flavours inferred by the aroma. Nice body, fairly alcoholic finish and a plasant lingering aftertaste. Nice beer, but not as robust as I had hoped based on some of the recent reviews.

CapFlu (5103) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2004
(5ooml bottle) Summer 2004 offering at the LCBO. Pours a medium beige head with a brown body. Enormous smell of caramel malt. Flavour is slightly more smokey than I had anticipated. The Lagavulin of the ale world? Very good.

Aroma of dark fresh bread. Full bodied. Dark fruits and hops. Slightly smokey.

pintbypint (3352) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 26, 2004
500ml brown bottle. Ruby coloured, tan head is thick. Aroma of sweet malt with a little bit of zesty hops. Medium bodied, dark malt taste melds well with hops. A trace of alcohol and bittereness in the finish.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2004
Very dark sparkling ruby color with a decent brownish head. Fresh sweet malty nose with an upstart brown sugar presence. Light touches of dark fruit and a light alcohol feathering also in the nose. LIght spritz at the beginning leads to a quick sweet malt body. Bitterness adds to the body in the middle with a firm alcohol kick also making itself known. Finished lightly bitter and just a tad thin and sweet.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 Everything about this beer speaks of strength! A beautiful, rich ruby red with a strong and fresh aroma that mixed hops and a touch of sweetness.Not much of a head, but a pile of flavour - hops, malt, caramel and even a hint of smokiness. This is a strong ale that goes down easy with a pleasantly full, but not overpowering aftertaste. Instantly, it has become one of my favourites - and since the LCBO only stocks it for a short time, Im off to the store to stock up.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2004
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO, part of Fall beer selection. Tasted in a dimpled mug. Appearance is deep copper red, thin white head. Aroma is faint, with a hint of sweetness and alcohol. Flavour favours the sweet / malty side, fairly upfront alcohol in the taste, hint of smokiness and finishes with a slight hoppy note.

DarkStar22769 (100) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2004
This was a delightful treasure from the weekend. Malty, with very little, if any, hop aroma. Very, very sweet... Alcohol was apparent, and the flavours were long-lasting.
