Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
A clear brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, coffee, chocolate, tobacco, floral hops, surranated. In mouth, a bitter chocolate with resinous floral hops, surprisingly nice considering it’s 2years old. Bottle at OttBottleShare July 2014.

DuffMan (10425) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle, shared with Robbie. Very dark brown, rapidly vanishing head. Aroma is more melon than citrus for me, and is starting to turn phenolic, with plastic undertones that show up even more on the palate. Too underhopped and thin to be classed as an IPA. We’ve shared three Trafalger bombers today, and this was by far the worst.
