More chestnut, even brown, than red. Clear body, good foam head, vanishes with very little lace. Taste is malts, maybe some hops, but principal sensation is a bone dry ale. I’ve come to demand more from my alcohol and from my empty calories. The rest of this bottle is for cooking.

In short: A basic toasted and moderately sweet dark beer with nothing standing out
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark amber body topped by an off-white head
In long: Shy and basic toasted nose. Taste of dry fudge, toasted bread, brown sugar and some fruity notes. Sensation of a dry toasted fruit cake. Subtle hops presence with some dry orange peels. Overall rather dry. Could pass as an Irish Ale. But that’s just mixing two boring styles together, like the tv reality show “America’s Accountant”.

En fût. Pinte dégustée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une pointe de noix. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel et de cérérales grillées avec une pointe d’houblon. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #1683)

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 My Bottom Line:
Tepid toasted malt and its subtly baccate caramel brethren lead to a leafy supporting hop bitterness. This is another well-malted Jasper Murdock ale, yet is does not shine in the brewery’s lineup.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam lingers atop the copper-tinged burgundy.
-An earthen dryness seems to be concealing a mineral character.
-Carbonation is active and a little frothy at first.
-This remains a relatively well-done version of a boring style, but it is not interesting enough for me to have more than a pint.

From the bottle and on tap at the brewpub .

Sampled at vt brewfest 07. Pours a copper color with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, and woody hops. flavor is well balanced with caramel, and toasted malts with a clean and bitter finish. Very nice.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2007
Robe cuivrée très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche qui s’estompe. Arômes de bonbon, de malt caramélisé et de céréales.

Tap at the alehouse. Copper coloured, thin yellowish head. Sweet caramel aroma, light woody hops. Some sweet blackberry notes. Flavour is well-balanced. Light sweet crystal malt, lingering woody herbal hop flavour. Moderate bitterness.

CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2006
(Draught) Tiny, bubbles dance amongst a mahogany body. Thin, dissipated head. Nose and flavour of strong English malts, mildly roasty with an oregan hops bitterness. Nice balance and complexity.

Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2006
