Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Tap at BT. Pours a deep reddish amber brown with a thinning head to almost nothing. Aroma is very sweet, big sharp caramel and a big toasty brown malt component, with fruity esters, some earth, caramel, toffee and molasses. Flavor is straightforward with ok fruity ester, plum, then moslty caramel, toffee, biscuit, and lots of dark honey sweetness and molasses- abrupt finish- not too bitter. Ok- seemed very basic and non-complex.

Tried on Beer Quest 2010 with all the guys. This was number 16. Pours a hazy brown/red. Nice head. Aroma was full of spices and apricot. Flavor was spiced with hints of some fruit.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Pale amber beer. The nose is a little bit sweet and malty. Softly sweet with a bit of soft sweet caramelly maltiness. Sort of a like a UK barleywine. There is a little bit of berryish character along with some lighter apricot notes. Its kind of sweet with a light lingering fruitiness. There is a touch of leathery character on the back.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2009
On tap in Feb 2008: Transparent dark copper pour has deep ruby hues and a fully-lacing froth of off-white head. Aroma of toasty nutty sweet caramel malt and some earthy hops. Body starts full and dark malty sweet with a lot of earthy bittering hops before a drier, toasty bitter finish. A little too bitter for the style, but still pretty drinkable.

Lubiere (13051) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2009
A dark amber ale with a thin off white head. A pleasant vinous aroma with nutty notes, vanilla, plesant. In aroma, a good chunky malt with sustained British hops. Medium bodied. On tap at brewpub, Nov. 30 2008, with Sponge and Goldorak.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Draft at American Flatbread - Poured a dark amber in color with a small white head that hung around for a while. Aroma was malty and slightly sweet. Flavor was also somewhat sweet and not at all strongly flavored. A bit watery. Finishes with a brief hint of its malty sweetness. Not really all that good...

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2008
Clear caramel coloured. Rapidly diminishing head. Despite being rather sweet, this is one ale that greets us with a fair amount a freshness. From the fresh grains to the whisper of supporting floral hops, this is all cleanliness and good ingredient extraction. Pleasant candied aroma with strong pear, raisin, toffee and straight up cerealic maltiness. Trace alcohol. Sweet palate, though thin enough to avoid stickiness. Gentle, engaging carbonation. Hesitating a bit between being refreshing and being a sipper, but a pleasant drink nonetheless.

Quevillon (2947) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
Bu au Mondial 07, au taux de 7.3%. Rousse fonce, pas de collet, temprature de la pice (growler). Arome de malte fruit srette faible. Got de malte aux fruits rouges mures, un peu srette.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - APR 7, 2007
on tap at the blind tiger grand opening night. ruby copper color, watery lager-like aroma. light sweetish malt aroma too. flavor is sweet malt, a little earthy and a light bitter finish. I wouldnt call it boring as much as light in all of its characteristics. everything is subtle, so have one standalone so it doesnt get obscured by the typical big beers.
