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 .
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.

Split a 22oz bottle with some friends from work, one that picked it up while in Vermont. Poured a pretty amber-red color with a small wispy off-white head. Aroma was solid caramel malts. Hops don’t linger in this one - it’s mostly malt. A lot more enjoyable than I expected. TaktikMTL (7733) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
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) Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 22, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2005 Pours a ruby red with a very rosey smell. Bitter muskey taste with a hint of nuts. Very tasty. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2009
In short: A basic toasted and moderately sweet dark beer with nothing standing outCapFlu (5126) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2006
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”.
(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.
