czar (8895) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
can. pours unclear light brown, burnt orange, with a small beige cap offering minimal retention and lacing. plain caramel, fruity and nutty maltiness as well, maple syrup unsweetened solids, earthy stone fruits - almost rotten though, astringent woodsy-earthiness - disturbing; metal, clean yeast otherwise, chalk. moderate carbonation, light body - watery; relatively dry spicy-earthy finish. plain, boring and cheap fruity caramel with a strange english-like earthiness. nah.

Metalchopz (3339) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2016
Single can from the LCBO. Pours a clean, deep amber colour with a beige frothy head, good retention and creamy lacing. Nutty roasted malt aromas with hints of coffee, caramel and even chocolate. The taste is roasted malts, kind of watery, with notes of caramel and some decent hops in the finish. This creates a little grassy bitterness and dryness. Not bad, but missing a little balance.

KoNrRiI (1447) - rhus, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2015
0.473 can. Clear, brown color and a small, off-white head of poor retention. Malty aroma of caramel, and a bit of roast. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is nice, malty, sweet - rather pleasant. Overall not a bad beer but nothing special either.

pushkinwow (2758) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
On tap at Beas Oktoberfest 2015. Towards the end of the festival so my notes were not quite so legible - roasted malts with some chocolate notes, mild body and moderate carbonation.

ILduce (278) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2015
473ml can Beer Store: Chestnut brown with nice foamy beige head that completely dissipates. Sweet, nutty aroma. Tastes of brown rye bread, nuts, and Nonnas chilled espresso. Slick, thin, yet clean mouthfeel. Moderate bitterness. Very drinkable dark.

Raistlin (393) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2015
Really nice deep brown pour with a bit of flat-lying tan foam. Nice aromas of toffee and citric hops and cocoa and nuts. Taste some nice chocolate and nuts followed by a later hop bitterness that just cinches refreshment over the light sweetness. Great feel! So good, caramel and toffee with bitter english hop, bock-like barnyard.

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
341 ml bottle. Clear brown brew. Muted aroma with some roast and caramel and a hint of nuttynes but not much else. The palate is equally quiet with some light toasty bitterness and a hint of caramel sweetness but overall a disappointing brew that I wont order again.

crucethus (3) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014 does not count
Mediocre beer does not linger on the palate. Good with spicy foods. Colour deep amber and very foamy.

kevinsenn (2173) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
On tap. Clear brown with foamy head. Nutty and toasty with caramel sweetness. A fine run-of-the-mill dark ale.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
341 mL bottle. Cola brown with a ring of head. The expected nuttiness and/or breadiness is there to a small degree in the nose, but not much else. It is quite mild, but not unappealing. It is there in the flavour as well, which isnt too sweet. Body is quite decent. One dimensional, but nothing else wrong with this one. Would probably be good on tap or from a cask.
