Pours a light brown body with a tinge of ruby. Good-sized head that dissipates rapidly. Active carbonation.
Smell: All sweetness here. Aromatic in it’s sweetness with an almost candy-like quality & mild hops aroma.
Taste: Mild at beginning. Sweetness vaguely ressembles a cough drop quality (not necessarily a bad thing) but then leans more towards a hard candy aspect. Sweetness not overwhelming but dominant. It really warms the throat all the way through, almost as if you drank a shot of liquor.
Mouthfeel: Light on the palate, mildly carbonated. Sweetness is persistant but does finish with a tinge of bitterness that lets you know the hops are alive.

bottled, big thanks to the quebequois guys for bringing this to pilsen. poured a reddish amber with not much sign of a head; aroma of vanilla malted milk and peat; plenty of butterscotch and apple peel zestiness in the finish, though still a tad on the cloying side cfrancis (3474) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
Found this little gem at Dep Rahmann. I have no idea how long it was sitting there but I’m glad I found it. Pours a hazy orange amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet, and honey with malt and almost biscuity. Taste is thick and a little syrupy. Sweet barley and malt blast the palate with warming aftertaste of alcohol. Very nice beer. j12601 (12680) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle from a trip to Montreal back in April. Pours a murky brown with a thin white head. Plums and caramel, a touch of chocolate and toast. Medium bodied, a bit of cardboard and some smoke. Rather empty. Finishes up with a little bit of sweetness and more chocolate cardboard flavors. A bit boozy on the finish. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2009

Weird, not the usual from Bieropholie.
341ml bottle purchased from La Trappe a Fromage in Gatineau, Quebec.
Opened on January 12, 2009.
Bottled, thanks hanniku and Timo A! Dark amber color. Very sweet, berryish, fruity and caramelly aroma with vanilla. Thick sweet flavor with toffee, caramel amd berries with raspberry and some rough herbal bitterness in finish. Chewy mouthfeel. Aroma is nice but the finish is dull. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2009
Pours a cloudy amber color with a thin offwhite head. The aroma is pleasant but simple, caramel is the main attraction here. The flavor has a malty signature with caramel and hops, there’s mild bitterness in the end. The main flaw of this beer would be the palate, is feels lighter than any barley wine / english strong ale I’ve tasted and the texture feels dead, maybe it’s the very low carbonation. Overall, it’s a pleasant beer to sip, but not on par with the classics of the style. robinvboyer (4699) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2009
Interesting beer.........It’s got a really nice smooth subtle sweetness, reminds me of a good mead. Really nice caramel malts, some piney hops, and a semi bitter finish. A pleasure to sip and enjoy. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2009
Sweet piney aroma. Pours cloudy orange with thin white head. Thin, with sweetness and pine in the flavour. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2009
