fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Draught at Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar (W. Broadway), Vancouver; 10oz
Dark amber color with small head. Dark caramel, and earthy character; rather dry. A very typical Red Ale, which isn’t saying much, and this beer is not better than the bunch. Clean and flawless, though.

On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a dark red with a small beige head. Nose brings out dry bready malt - not much else. Flavour is along the same lines, with a bone dry bready malt character dominating. Very well-brewed for a typically boring style. Good stuff.

Ferris (16491) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Draft - Grains and caramel. Clear dark copper with a decent white head. Caramel, tea leaves and light hops. Decent, but nothing special.

Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2007
A dark clear brown ale with a thick light moka head. Aroma of caramel, strwberries and butterscotch. In mouth, a true Irish Red, rather dry with lots of burned caramel and nuts, but short in mouth. On tap at Vices et Versa, Oct. 7, 2007.

Sammy (12730) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2011
On cask at Bar Volo Le Trou Du Diable event. Spot on the style, a good drinkable cask. Fragrant malt and hops, with three-eights of an inch of cask head. Good malting. Above average mouthfeel for a cask. A little sourness in finish, some lace, a smooth mouthfeel.

2011-02-19. Very dark red brown body is lightly hazy, modest creamy tan head leaves a nice lace on the glass. Flavour is relatively mild, lingering hoppy bitterness in the finish. Mild sweet malt middle, light citrus notes. 6+ Aroma is mild, light alcohol, light dusty malt character. 6+ Average palate is very smooth but under carbonated. Okay, it was an enjoyable drink but lacked the oomph to make more of an impression. Cask at Volo, Toronto

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2006
Any first impressions?
-A veil of head hangs on to the clear mahogany.
-Wooden, smoky subtleties rise from an otherwise quiet aroma.
-Earth-covered berries are surrounded by morning-after campfires.
-The active carbonation is fitting, although just a little less would have allowed more drinkability, methinks.

What if you dig deeper?
-The light bitterness of coffee beans appears serene.
-Caramel comes up again in the nose and flavor, a redundant feature in their lineup.
-A touch of rauch malt was used (confirmed by one of the owners) in an intelligent manner.
-A well-brewed Irish Ale, but how exciting can this style be anyway?

On tap at the brewpub.

[3602-20110219] Cask. Grassy hops aroma. Hazy, red amber body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head and lacy lacing. Bitter pencil lead and grassy hops flavour. Medium body. Great balance, not sure why but probably my favourite of the night. (8/4-/9/4/17-) 4.2
(Le Trou du Diable Night @ Volo, Toronto, ON)

JoeMcPhee (9549) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Tap at Wvrst. Deep amber pour. Soapy flavor with a bit of malt. Earthy and a little bit bland. Not really my style. Has a bit of earthiness. Meh

czar (9422) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
on tap at bateau de nuit, qc. clear dark red pour with a nice and reviving off-white head, some retention and lacing. toasted and spicy maltiness - almost rye-like, but also light enjoyable caramel, red fruitiness - hint of acidity, pepper, touch of smoke and coffee, fairly herbal and grassy. moderate carbonation, light body - a tad watery, dry herbal-peppery-grassy finish. more than decent.
