Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Pint at LCB. Pours a mostly clear woody amber with a thin head fades to nothing. Aroma is fairly light overall with a slight sharp toasty malt character and a sligth herb al hoptwang. Flavor is a bit more malty but not really anything going on- sharp deep taosty malts, hints of vienna bread and light nuts- ok herbal and slight grassy hop. Meh.

Draught. Dark copper with a very small head. Aroma of sweet cereal, fruits, and burnt roast. Sweet with caramel and dark fruit character along with some mild hop bitterness. Pretty decent.
Half pint at the brewpub on June 1, 2007.

Amber lager with fine fizzy, creamy head.
Sweet, malty, fruity aroma. Fresh juicy malts dominate nose.
Gentle yet noticeable hop character blended with fruity, sweet malty base. Bitter finish. Fairly balanced bock but I was looking for more traditional malt than hop character.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2007
Slightly cloudy mahogany body topped by beige ring of foam. Nose of sweet nuts and wood. In mouth the attack is caramel coated nuts (walnut mainly), then a liquorice flavour joins in and all that turns into a finish of molasses, honey and wood. The medium-high sweetness level felts a lot more honey-ish than caramel to me. Unusual for that type of beer. Woody hops abound and provide a nice dryness to balance the whole thing. Pleasant body and lively carbonation. Very nice. Brewed once a year around may (duh). Ill make a point to try a pint of each new batch every year. Which given my lifestyle means about 10 more pints.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2006
Any first impressions?
-There is barely a ring atop the clear, orange-tinged ruby.
-Bountiful fruity maltiness leaps from the glass, yet is taken aback by unappealing dustiness.
-Candied berries play efficiently with the earthy caramel, inviting along cantaloup and red apple skin.
-The low carbonation fits the luxurious mouthfeel.

What if you dig deeper?
-Nondescript hop bitterness meets roastiness and butterscotch just before the finish.
-The ending dryness is surprising considering the malts important apport.
-A decent dark bock for malt heads, but nothing to write home about.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2006
Hazy dirty milky orange pour leaving behind a good white head displaying more than honest lacing. Sweet nose reminds of wheat crackers, maple, honeymelon and various fruits, perhaps pomegranate in its mineral backing soft tartness. Strong carbonation punctuates the airy textured medium body. Rather soft and not too biting. Yeast/hops marriage procures a strong dry-out effect that is accented by a certain mineral quality which ultimately borders chalkiness. Besides this exagerated finish though, the experience remains pleasant enough.
