(From Marches de Saveurs, Montreal, QC; w/ jerc)
2010-02-27. Hazy dark red brown body, modest beige head. Aroma is somewhat yeasty, toasty malt notes. 6+ Flavour has a bitterness up front, yeasty undercurrents with an occasional yeasty bite. Nutty toasty malt underneath. Average plus palate is effervescent. Okay, bit dull, and perhaps a bit more dry than my preference for such a malty beer. Bottle from Marches de Saveurs, Montreal

Bottle as part of the mixed-case offered by LTM. Pours a beautiful hazy deep red-orange with a dense tan head that leaves fine early lace. Nutty caramel aroma and flavour, some toast and soft marzipan notes in the finish. Mild bitterness. A very nice vienna. sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2009
Pours a dark red-brown, with a minimal white head. Aromas of toasted malts and caramel Tastes of toasted malts, sweet caramels, with some nut and spice flavours in the background. Overall slightly above average but not a stand out in anyway.

341ml brown bottle 09-08-28 : Deep amber, close to brown in color, solid head on the pour but quickly disappear. Some lacing. Pleasant nose, a touch of caramel, dark fruits. Medium body, some roasted note in the finish low bitterness, some spices (hops) Nice session beer. hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 28, 2009
Pours a dark caramel colour. The head is small and short lived. Aroma is simple, yet nice. Caramel, nuts and a touch of yeast. It tastes very nutty with biscuit up front as well. It tastes like a good liquid scone. Caramel, roasted malt and a hint of spice from the hops. Mouth feel is pleasant. Like a lagered ESB.Decent. VertBaconStrips (2391) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JUL 18, 2009
Poured out a large off white cap of moderate thickness, simmers to light coverage, small amounts of slippery lacing, clear copper brew. Big, rich roasted aromas are everywhere, I was surprised at the strength of this brew upfront. Caramel and biscuit, dark fruit nose that reminds me of fruit leather... is there any hops at all to be found? Very rich flavours of roasted malts, caramel and biscuit, that tang of the fruit is more available to enjoy than when cold, dark fruit (maybe those black plums), background candy. Weak bitterness comes through at the back of the sip, vanishes and then resurrects itself early in the after taste. Finishes quite nice. I’d drink this again. Diogène (1208) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle. Clear dark brown red with a thin white head. Below average retention and good lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, nuts and caramel. Flavor is toasted malt, wood, caramel, nuts and hops. Thin to medium body. Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2009
Pours copper red. Thin head on it.Strong aroma of Vienna malt. The flavour is rich and fruity, malty and sweet. With a slightly citrus hop finish. I think this is a very good beer.
