papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
Appearance: Not what i was expecting. Dense dark brown body that looks like apple cider with barely a thin ring of foam that slowly dissipates to nothing. Yeah, a minute in and im looking at no foam and no lacing. Looks flat to be honest. Smell: Mild hops with some sweetness but not much else. Slightly better but alas it was not meant too be because the... Taste: is awful. Sour permeates the mouth then slowly fades probably because im getting used to it. It tastes like its gone bad but its only about 2 months old. Not good at all. Mouthfeel: Not much better. Tastes almost flat with little to no carbonation. Reviewed on: 08-27-2009

AgentAle (1713) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
Aroma is deep sugar, honey, caramel and clove. Taste is rich sweet malts with your typical caramel and honey. Slight bittering on the tip. Traditional beer, nothing special here. Appearance is a dark brown with a thin pearl head that retains fairly.

50cl bottle at the Hotel on Pownal, Charlottetown, PEI. A reddish copper pour with a loose cream head; rich malty taste with some mollasses, but not too sweet. A really pleasant red ale.

500ml bottle shared with blackhaddock in his man cave. Many thanks to Duffman for this. Pours deep amber with a good tan head. Aroma is caramel, soft grainy malts. Taste is smooth caramel, hints of roast and spice. Essentially a nice uncomplicated easy-drinking smooth amber.

BlackHaddock (7078) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
500ml bottle, shared with minutemat on 5th Aug 2016. A decent beige head sat on top of the red/mahogany bodied beer. Malts rule the roost here, lightly roasted/toasted in the aroma, sweet notes from the molasses in the taste, tempered with some mild hop bitterness in the finish.

chinchill (4824) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2016
On tap at the Halifax Gahan pub. Clear dark mahogany body with a fine head. Good malty aroma with a bit more roasted grain flavor than the aroma suggests. Slightly bitter. Very nice.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
Slightly hazy dark amber color with powerful carbonation. Creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of fresh bread and caramel. Flavors of grains, burnt caramel, roasted nuts, lemon, melon, and herbal spices. Well balanced flamb and biscuity sweet taste with a nice sharp grainy feel. Slightly earthy. Creamy full body with perfect carbonation. Well intensified finish of medium length, ending with a sharp crispy herbal feel and a fruity/caramel tongue coat. Overall a very good craft with complex delicious flavors, super fresh feel, and well balanced.

Metalchopz (3339) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Enjoyed at the Gahan House in Halifax. Pours a clear amber colour with a decent off-white head. Aromas of toasted grain with caramel malts. Kind of a peachy fruit taste with a grainy finish. A pretty refreshing fruity red ale.
