3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a decently hoppy ale, with typical caracteristics: reddish brown colour, lively hop aroma, caramelly flavour. Nonetheless, one senses that something is missing. Not bad though. Draught.
Had a pint at Pour Boy, Ottawa. Pint arrived with a very thin layer of head, glass filled to the top so no chance to breathe. Has a coppery appearance. Aromas are light malts and hints of caramel. Flavours of roasted malts, caramel with some notes of toffee, toast and bready malts. Sweetness in the finish. Seems like a mild maple like taste in the finish as well. Not too bad.

Pours very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is slightly sour with notes of coffee, roasted malt, and molasses. Body is medium and carbonation is moderate. It’s pretty straightforward and a bit too sour. markas101 (2529) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2017
Tall can, Mulmur, ON, Pille memorial weekend. Translucent brown. Mostly caramel aroma. Sweet conventional flavor. Not bad but could be more interesting. mikkopen (1197) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2017
473 ml can. Clear reddish brown colour, tan head. Sweetish toasted malty aroma with notes of nuts, caramel and raisins. The flavour is sweetish malty, lightly toasted,with caramel and notes of nuts, and a mildly bitter finish. OK, but nothing special. Raistlin (495) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
Pours dark caramel with a large, fluffy tan head. The head mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of chocolate, coffee and toasted malts along with bread, nuts, earth, pine and herbs. The flavour starts out slightly sweet and soon acquires a moderate bitterness accompanied by notes of roasted malts and coffee. On the palate, it is medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is not a bad ale. It has a nice malt profile with toasted malts and roasted coffee.

Canette bue en septembre 2014. Très légère. Goût de noisettes grillées, caramel, cassonade. Un petit arôme chocolaté s’installe en finale. Gros bof. bjakk (828) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JAN 19, 2016
Red, clear with nice white head. Mild aroma of burned sugar. Burned sugar, caramel with burned sweet aftertaste. jksipa (1034) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
Can from the LCBO. Clear dark reddish brown under a one finer off white head. Nose is brown sugar, toast, dark fruit. Light sweet with a lighter bitterness and a bit of nuttiness. Mouth is slick but a little thin wit average carbonation. Decent enough. KoNrRiI (1708) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2015
0.5 tap. Clear, brown color with a crimson tinge and virtually no head. Aroma of caramel, dark malts, brown sugar, delicate hints of nuts and wood. Taste is lightly sweet: caramel, dark malts, a tad of sugar. Light body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is soft and generally follows the taste. Overall a very tacky brew, nothing special. sudomorph (1199) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2015
473ml can. Pours a clear dark caramel/ruby with a finger, off white head that thins to a film. Aroma has great notes of dark fruits, mild roast and dark chocolate, and some breadyness. Taste is balanced. Caramel, hint of roast, dark chocolate, toasted bread, and a short finish. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a wort, slightly creamy mouth feel. Overall pretty tasty. I’ve had it before but I don’t remember it being this good.
