light red in colour with a thick frothy head, a citrus fruit aroma with a hint of caramel and almonds. a light hop taste with an almond finish, has a body of a dark beer and has hints of cocoa and coffee. good on the palate, lets you know that you are sipping a beer!

Tessic (1146) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2012
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a soapy, bright white head. No lacing. Scents include malt, caramel, toast and dough. First sip was very nice and malty with flavours of caramel, toast and cereal most prodominant. Finish is malty with caramel and toast flavours lingering with a light bitterness.

Viper666 (3286) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur ambrée-cuivrée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucré et légèrement rôtis, moyen de caramel, léger de pain, de biscuits et de houblon herbeux aux notes florales ainsi que des traces de noixc et de sucre brun. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux et une texture légèrement crémeuse. Faibles notes fruitées (agrumes, traces de raisins) et accompagné d’un goût de grains de malt très légèrement rôtis lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de caramel, un léger goût de biscuits et des notes de pain. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon en arrière-goût , d’abord floral puis peu à peu plus herbreux, et ce jusqu’en finale, où l’on y décèle quelques notes de noix asséchantes. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec des traces de rôti et de noix.

500ml bottle. Orangy mahogany with a nice off white head. Toasted and somewhat artificially sweet malts, caramel, grainy, some candy and white sugar notes. Mild body and moderate carbonation, somewhat sweet, malty and doughy, becomes quite dry.

Bottle picked up at the Waterdown LCBO. Pours a clear brown colour, that is rather bubbly, has a white head that recedes to a thin sheet and a touch of lacing. Smells of caramel and a touch of malt. Tastes malty and a little sweet with a bit of bitterness.
