probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2010
500 ml can shared with beer geeks at LAutre Oeil, served fairly cold in a taster glass. 11NO10.

App.: Clear deep amber with a white veil. Aroma: Thick, sweet, nutty, very fruity, boozy, metallic, acetone, berries, apple juice, gross. Palate: Medium body with fairly full effervescence. Flav.: Solvent, booze, sweet and sugary (cloying), nutty, Sherry, caramel, acetone, butterscotch(?), fairly terrible; off-dry with stinging alcohol and a strange solvent/nut finish and bizarre astringency.

A study in defects and yuck.

Sammy (11849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2010
Radeks choice, at Lautre oeil in Aylmer. A little reddish colour, thought it was a Vienna and was pleasantly surprised by long bitter finish. Decent mouthfeel, drinkability. Would like more in-your-face hops.

psilosophy (760) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - SEP 18, 2010
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambre tirant sur le rouge, mousse faible, ne tient pas. Bire trs sucre avec des armes de caramel, de bonbon et de whisky, Hormis quelle soit trop sucre, elle nest pas non plus des plus agrable en bouche car la texture est plutt syrupeuse et manque de carbonation. Pour autant, ne soyons pas trop svre car la bire se boit sans devenir coeurante (tient bien le rchauffement) et la sensation dalcool est assez bien masque (8,4% pourtant). Trouve Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Bottle 33cl. An amber ale with low carbonation and low head. Smell is on caramel and spices / agrumes notes. Aroma is medium sweet, on toasted malt, caramel and some spicy and herb notes such as juniper. Not too alcoholic, but complexity is low.
