googleimage83 (125) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2017
Lively dark brown pour, soda head that dissipates but leaves a persistent trace. Aroma is malty and rich with dark fruit - raisin, fig, cherry, rum, booze. Taste is astringent to start and gets progressively ripe - starts grapey and tart, then cherry, rum, booze, banana, nutmeg to finish. Bubbly palate suits the beer. "Love" would be too strong a term, but its very good.

Onesimus (51) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2017
The stage lights go up the curtain is drawn and centre stage is a glass of Ruby brown Ale with a one finger, off white foamy head that melted slowly to a thin layer. As she spins in the glass her aromas emanate filling airwaves with malty dark fruits, a note sweet caramel and a hint of herbs. Enticed by this you notice her rounded and smooth body, with a good carbonation giving a swanky mouthfeel. She continues her performance with gathering intensity but as you taste her delights she is dryer than expected. A bitter twist to her performance given by hard hitting herbs that challenges, her promise of malty fruits make little appearance, there is no reprise of the sweet fruity promise just unrelenting dryness. Like the dark talented artiste she is you were duped and drawn into her deception and yet you still just want to drink deeper of this mordant biting babe. FB group "The Beer Journal"

lesifflebiere (1788) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2017
Une brune fonce bien opaque, une mousse moyenne de couleur crme la surface, texture mi-paisse et assez ptillante. Nez de vin et de sucre dorge, avec des fruits rouges. Bouche plus sche que prvue, moins ronde, mais les saveurs en font un classique : caramel, fruits schs et encore du sucre dorge. Elle est peut-tre un peu trop carbonate, ce qui coupe quelque peu sa richesse. Pas la meilleure trappiste ni la meilleure dubbel du monde, mais sa belle complexit et ses saveurs justes russissent charmer.

Glas. Dark red brown beer. Small head. Aroma is caramel, malt, sweet. Taste is the same. Too sweet for my taste.

rodsquad (142) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours dark ruby-brown with big beige foam head. Aromas start as barley sugars softening to treacle toffees. Freshly dug earth, brown bread and apple juice. Flavour of caramel, a light lemony presence and an earthy bitter hop finish. A cracking sharp bubbly body. It has a cola-drink moreishness but swaps the sickly, syrupy body with a hugely refreshing light citrus finish.

ozzatoadisback (139) - ITALY - FEB 28, 2017
Brown coloured with reddish hints if seen through light. Light yellow coloured creamy head, average, decent persistence and lacing. Aroma has brown sugar, strong fruity esters (expecially ripe banana) and a touch of pricklyness/pepper. Average intensity. Taste is dominantly sweet with toffee malts, brown sugar, fruity notes (slight dark fruits but mostly banana) and pretty much no bittering counterpart. Also a slight hint of spiciness. Fairly intense. Medium bodied with average to high carbonation, slightly creamy. Overall a fair beer, a tad too much on the sweet/banana side for my taste.
