Specially aged with lightly toasted Oak, weve carefully crafted this festive seasonal to capture the warmth of an old, iron-stove Oakhouse. With subtle hints of vanilla and a deep amber hue, this rich winter lager is ideal alongside succulent stew or piping hot roast. All you need now is plenty of firewood. And matches.

Minderbinder (3469) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Can 473ml. Pours golden with low off-white head. Almost amber. Aroma is of malt, sugar, oak, grain. Taste is of malt, vanilla, oak, sugar, slight acidity. Fruits. Palate: Light body. Overall: A bit bold. The acidity turns unpleasant as you down the can. Not gross, but I would not drink alot of this.

Lubiere (13565) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light oaked notes, vanilla, not bad. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with light vanilla, oak, decent. Decent.

Raistlin (383) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
It was actually pretty damn good beer. It had quite a thick flavour to it. Head was white and hanged around for while. It was pretty smooth, no alchoholic taste to it at all at the end, which is what you would expect from beer 5.0% over alcohol in most ceases, but not this one. Has a nutty taste, rich texture, really enjoyable beer.

Eructoblaster (4105) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Can - 473ml. Amber body with heavy carbonation and a thin white foamy/bubbly head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with corny, grassy, and some flowery hints. Its boring corny taste carries some subtle woody notes and ends with a short bittersweety finish. Very ordinary.

Strangebrewer (1272) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
bottle. Poured clear amber with an average white. Light malt aroma with a coriander note. Medium weight with a thick mouthfeel. Malt flavour with sweet brown sugar notes and a spicy hint, some slight woodiness. Very long finish when you just want it to be over. Blah.

Une seule bouteille annonce moiti prix au dpanneur du coin, je mlance. Elle est dore et voile et une charmante petite mousse la garnit. Le pain dpice est ma premire impression olfactive. La cannelle qui tourne autour de la cassonade. Il y a des senteurs de gravlax, comme une odeur de cabane pche blanche. Son got est prs des armes. Du caplan qui se prend pour un bonbon en forme de poisson, ceux que mon grand-pre moffrait. a picote la langue. Donc, ctait a. (731-080713)

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle. 5.5%. Clear copper coloured pour with a bubbly white head. . Aroma is caramel malts, vanilla, mild oaky notes. Not at all expected from a macro lager, esp. MolsonCoors. Taste is more of the same, all balanced into a killer winter seasonal. This is a welcome addition to any Christmas fireplace gathering. Kudos where kudos are due.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2013
Botle. Medium blonde body, average white head. The aroma is softly oaky, not overbearing, with underlying cereals. Pale malt backbone with assertive woody oak that does not overpower. Much more balanced than Innis & Gunn oaked lagers, with less sweetness and a drier finish. Dont get me wrong-- it did not "wow" me, but if youre going to oak a beer made with pale malts, then this is the better way to go (i.e. tone down the oak).
