A reddish brown ale with a very thin off white head. In aroma, a musty grainy malt, with light sour cherry notes. In mouth, a earthy malt with light cinnamon, sourish notes, a bit off, sweet nutty notes, earthy. This one is going off.

Boutip (6179) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and not much lacing. Aroma of rye malt with light residual sweetness is quite enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by rye malt with some light buckwheat notes and some balanced sweetness. Body is about average but has a creamy texture which is enjoyable with good carbonation. I must admit that this beer was better then anticipated.

Eructoblaster (4068) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2010
Bottle - 341ml. Dark copper body with a decent off-white foamy head. Malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, brown sugar, and buckwheat hints. Its well balanced taste ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Well done.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2010
341 ml bottle via Lubiere, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Cloudy deep mahogany with a smallish tan head. Aroma: Sweet with a good hit of esters and brown sugar, with some molasses, peppery with some aggressive rye bread crust, a bit fruity – berries and vague jammy notes, some grain/cereal notes, but not in a bad way (like many pale lagers), fairly dark and full, pleasant. Palate: Medium body, restrained effervescence for a fairly smooth overall impression. Flav.: Peppery and grainy, fruitier than the nose and the malts are more serious with deeper flavours and less of the playful esters and brown sugar, pepperiness comes through again, minerals, definite influences from the rye and buckwheat, I think; dry with minimal bitterness and a roasted cereal finish.

Interesting and a nice brew from a less-than-reputable brewer. I also think the dude on the front would make a good Halloween costume.

cfrancis (3313) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2012
Pours dark reddish brown with a huge frothy off white head. Aroma is musty malt and straw rye with sour cherries. Taste is tart with cherry and spicy buckwheat malt. Really isn’t that very good. Had high expectations.

Nez de levures fruitées (moyen de bananes, traces de prunes et d’agrumes), de sucre brun, de pain, léger de caramel et de grains de céréales (seigle) avec des notes d’alcool. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement aqueuse et aux petites notes crémeuses. Léger goût de levures fruitées (notes de bananes, traces d’agrumes) accompagné de notes de céréales (sarrasin) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel sucré avec des notes de sucre brun ainsi qu’un moyen goût de pain. Parallèlement l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool ainsi qu’un léger goût de céréales (seigle, notes amères et asséchantes) jusqu’en finale où l’on retrouve également des notes amères de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer d’alcool doux, de seigle avec des notes de houblon herbeux ainsi qu’avec un goût fruité (léger zest d’agrumes et de pelures de bananes).
