Nice caramel tasting malt with a smoky oak aftertaste. Very well balanced but a bit on the mild side for this style of beer. pintbypint (3578) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
330ml clear bottle from box. Deep clear amber colour with a creamy beige head that fades to a ring. Not much lace, the odd soapy bubble. Nose has EKG hops that give off some orange fruit, mild toffee malts. Taste starts with some sweet caramel malt and some orangey fruits again. Ends with light toffee, golden yellow sugar, nice vanilla/oak/wood to finish. A bit of pleasant warming alcohol, but nothing to get in the way. Body is light for the style, light carbonation, overall it drinks very easily. Enjoyed this quite a bit, would drink again.

Bottle 33cl from FoneFan thanks and shared with Calisky. A clear copper-amber beer with medium head. Nose is on blond caramel with intense oak notes. A quite sweet caramel beer, notes of blond and buttery caramel at the beginning then caramel notes goes on a burnt caramel touch with dry grassy bitterness, the whole encapsulated with round oak and light maple syrup. Properly hopy, nice beer, a bit too sweet. AleRider78 (1046) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
330ml bottle. Poured a thick creamy head and has a dark amber colour. Somewhat apparent alcohol scent with a pretty strong aroma of vanilla. Same goes for the flavour, vanilla and milder roasted malts. Aftertaste is a bit bitter, not too offensive though. The box the bottle is housed in has abv of 7.7%, 2012 edition.

330 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 14JN12. lukin (621) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
App.: Deep copper with a full, reddish-tan head.
Aroma: Fruity, earthy caramel/toffee, sweet, berries, a touch tangy, a little vinous, some light vanilla and wood notes, not bad.
Palate: Medium body, soft-ish carbonation.
Flav.: Much more wood here, slightly peppery, fruity, berry-like toffee/caramel, booze, Scotch-like (almost) or at least whiskey-like, certainly more assertive than the nose; dry with limited bitterness and a boozy, malty, slightly smokey finish.
bottle. Dark ruby pour, decent head. Aroma is toffee, vanilla, wood, some fruits. Taste is very sweet, unmistakable innis and gunn, more toffee, some pear, oak. Enjoyable, if a little too sweet.
