mcberko (18589) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a dark reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of dry caramel malts, bready malts, and some pungent resinous hops. Flavour is very round, full of dry caramel malts, resinous hops, and some very subtle fruity notes. Extremely well-balanced but the flavour profile isn’t anything special. Good stuff.

Draft - Flowery hops, grapefruit and candy malts. Clear amber with a rich thin tan head. Spicy, grapefruit, dark malts and nice bitterness. Alcohol is not evident and finished bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thank you JefVerstraete! Tasting glass from 750 ml. bottle consumed @ “The Tasting formerly known as Mons RBBAG I (2014)”. Hazy red / brown / amber, little head. Nose is caramel, tad herbal bitter, sticky sweet with bitter peel. Taste is bitter peel with thick syrupy malt base, herbal hops, chewy malts & sugar, bitter finish. Substantially thick. Tastes like a hoppy barley wine more than anything else, quite enjoyable even though I’m not big on fresh hoppy barley wines.

jercraigs (10731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
2013-06-22. Crisp dark red amber body with a nice beige head and lace. Aroma is pleasant, leafy hops over pleasantly sweet malt base. Flavour is similar, leafy green hops, light bitter over layer and finish but the middle is sweet malt. 7++ Average to medium bodied palate, modest carbonation. Relatively simple but quite enjoyable. Central City Version at Session Festival 2013

2014-05-03. Crisp dark red-brown body with a nice foamy beige head. 3++ Aroma of green leafy hops, light dusty malt accents. Flavour is fairly bitter, nice malty core, lingering resiny green hops. Average plus bodied palate, pleasant carbonation suits it. Not super complex but pretty enjoyable. 7/4/7/3/15 FM Version Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

25/X/14 - 65cl bottle @ The Autumn Gathering formerly known as RBBAG Mons (Gent) - BB: n/a (2014-1258) Thanks to JefVerstraete for sharing the bottle!

Clear red beer, small creamy yellow head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, sweet malts, raisins, bit fruity. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, caramel, pretty bitter, bit nutty, some citrus, bit resinous, dried fruits. Aftertaste: bitter, malty, pretty hoppy, fruity, sugary, sweet notes, more a barley wine than anything else I’d say.

Rating entré originalement le 14 décembre 2012. Pour une raison que j’ignore il a disparu. Donc le revoici. ----> Bouteille de 750 ml partagée lors d’une dégustation Ratebeer Montréal. Arôme: Légère odeur de pamplemousse et de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Gout de pamplemousse avec une pointe de caramel et de fruits tropicaux. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût houblonné. (Rating #5412)

Gurthnar (6174) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Aroma has quite strong hops (grassy, herbal, noble) with decent caramel and alcohol notes. Clear reddish amber colour. Taste has quite strong sweetness with caramel and light candy, in conjunction with high hoppy bitterness. Nicely balanced and nicely drinkable, overall very nice beer.
