janubio (829) - - JAN 9, 2013
500 ml. bottle, porus a small brown head, amber colour. Smells of caramel, chocolate, banana and dark fruits, with hints of vanilla. Very sweet palate, though I found the body too light. Taste of dark fruits, chocolate, xerry or port wine and a hint of coffee in the end, though it keeps the sweetness.

jakeskia (13) - Kanata, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2017
Although a little on the sweet side I really enjoyed this beer mainly for the fact that on the nose those notes of molasses, raisins, dates and loads of spices then turn into a root beer/sasparilla on the palette.

Subliminal64 (161) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2017
Poured from bottle into lager type glass. Smells malty and sweet. Pours a dark brown with slight red tint. Head is light and foamy and disappears quickly. Some lacing that slowly disappears. Taste is sweet, malty and complex. Near perfect balance (liitle sweet). Good carbonation. Aftertaste is a little sweet. Overall I loved this beer. You would never know the ABV is 7.2%. Will look for this one again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

Pours brown with medium yellow head. Aroma is caramel, some sugar, sweet fruits, sweet cookies, apple pie, some cinnamon. Taste is caramel, toffee, dried fruits, some raisin, malts, some cake notes, light roast, gingerbread, roasted white bread, cookies. Nice beer!

portwood (268) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2017

BrewWhatIWant (168) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
Pours clear mahogany with a slightly yellowish head. Aroma is malty with caramel. Taste is sweet with a touch of bitterness, sour and spice. It tastes like dessert. Its fairly malty with notes of bready malt, apples, spice, and caramel that remind me of apple cinnamon bread, and then cherries and raisins. There’s some booziness, like rum, but it’s under enough deliciousness to avoid being off putting. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. This is definitely a one and done beer, but it’s one that I will definitely come back to.

Capa (3195) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Brown with a tan head. Caramel malt with some earth, chocolate, brown sugar. Medium bodied. Finish is malty and lightly booze-filled. Good beer.

PeatyPete (1036) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2017
Deep clean red colour with crème-coulered head. Aroma of molasses. Taste is sweet, fruity and a little spice.

vinivini (2061) - Gomel, BELARUS - FEB 15, 2017
Clear mahogany colour, moderate off-white head. The aroma is disturbed by notes of hay and cardboard. Also caramel & treacle are there. Medium body. Rich malty taste. Lots of caramel & molasses. Vinous. Low bitterness. Rather disappointing.
