HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
February 11, 2012 - with JoeMcPhee, blankboy, jercraigs & mabel. My 500ml bottle. Deep ruby with an average diminishing tan creamy head. Smells slightly nutty, mostly fruity, a bit floral (7-). Taste follows, its pungently sweaty, boozier too. Average body, mild carbonation, a fairly long back-palate slightly metallic bitter finish.

Metalchopz (3197) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2012
Purchased from the IGA in Hull, QC. Wow... this smells great !! Well-balanced between the fresh herbal hop and the caramel (sweetness)/roasted (burnt) malts. Deep copper-amber colour with a little ruby hue when light shinned through. Foamy beige head with good retention and lots of lacing. Average mouthfeel, easy to drink. The taste is not as powerful as the aromas, but still decent. Still malty, but milder, and the nice hop does appear in the finish, slightly lingering, creating bitterness and dryness. This is a really good strong brown ale (quite interesting and different). I very much enjoyed my first experience from this brewery. Cant wait to try the others.

On tap. Nothing to add. Good beer. Would drink again. Lighter and easier drinkability than I expected. Malt. Refreshing.

Huge malt bill. Just loads of dark cereal, grainy malts. Very litle hops, and very little sweetness. This is pretty much just a malt bomb of a belgian ale. Even reminded me of a doppelbock. Medium bitter finish, with nothing but grains and cereals in the finish.

The nose is softly worty with a little bit of toasted grain character. A little bit of roasted/toasted malt flavour. A little bit of soft fruit and toasted cocoa graininess. A little bit of light yeasty flavour. The fresh malt character comes out as it warms.

toffsbury (116) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle shared by kevinsenn. Yeasty Belgian aroma, ot much else to say about that. Nice deep red colour, with a respectable head. Malty flavor, with very mild spiciness. Spiciness increases in the aftertaste though, with a fair bit of pepperiness. Not too bitter yet not sweet, its a well balanced beer. Pretty nice.

500mL bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Pours very dark brown with a big head; hadnt been shaken, but still exploded out of the bottle upon opening. Spicy Belgian aroma with some sweet malt. Sharp spicy taste, with a lot of pepper, and some bitterness in the end. Very interesting.

Bire noyer, coiffe dun fin col moka laissant une large dentelle au verre. Des armes fums de cacao. Moyennement amere. De corps fort, quelque peu astringente, elle se termine sur de beaux armes et une belle amertume.

Lodeur est malt... avant de pouvoir raffiner mon opinion, elle sest vanoui! Unebelle robe ocre avec un col des plus gnreux (peut-tre trop!). Got de caramel lger mais surtout vineux (comme du vin) et un peu terreux. On sent un peu dpice mme si je ne saurais y mettre un nom. LArrire got chaud est plaisant.
