Thanks to JLindros for sharing. Picked this up in Montreal.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear amber hue with a thin wispy head that fades to a thin halo.

S - Aromas of smoke and caramel malts, light toasty malts. Not much hops.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, fair amount of roast and old caramel malts and hops. Almost stale cardboard.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, medium body.

O - Overall this beer was just okay. A bit too roasty and caramel for my tastes.

Amber brown colour, mild white head with some lace left behind. Smell is malty with notes of caramel, sweet notes, lightly nutty and slight bitterness as well. Taste is all malt, caramel, sweet in the finish, lots of malt in finish and aftertaste as well. Mouthfeel is syrupy, big feel to this brew, nice medium carbonation. Pretty good, not fantastic for the style but still quite good.

Pours dark red with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows sweet caramel, toasty and nutty malt, soft earth and resinous hops and some golden syrup.
Flavours are also mainly malty, lots of toasty and nutty malt transfers through as well as some subtle caramel. Finishes with a bold bitterness, much drier than the aroma suggests.
Carbonation is a bit full-on.

Brought back from Montreal and shared with rudzud.

Light fizzy head disappears quickly, very little lacing, clear auburn brown color.

Nose brings sweet candy, toffee candy and reddish candy, malt, little nutty note and smoke, light grassy hop and little fruity note, earthy too.

Taste brings more sweet malt, candy, reddish candy, toffee and nutty notes, light smoky like note. Some grassy earthy spicy hops, weird earthy forest floor like with mild spicy note, toasty and doughy too. Finish is fair bitter, light lingering sweet malts and toffee nutty flavours, lingering earthy hops.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, little sticky feel.

Overall meh.

The beer color is brown with some reddish note. One could say it is acajou in color. Nice head on top of it. Sticky too. Dieu du Ciel amaze me in their head quality... Love that sticky stuff.

Aroma shows note of malt with some nuts. The aroma has a light intensity.

Taste wise I get some hazelnut with malts... Light bitterness at the end. Resinous.

Medium body. So easy to drink. A session beer. A good one too. Very accessible.
