3.5/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a clear dark burgundy color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light residual candi sugar with some caramelized malt. Taste is a mix between some caramelized malt with light molasses and some residual candi sugar. Body is maybe a tad below the average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad overall though I though this was lacking in ester and subtlety.

Draft pint at Bier Market in Montreal.
Pours dark brown, almost no head or lace.
The aroma is caramel malts, molasses, bit of smokiness.
Taste is similar to the smell, layers of flavor, caramel, dark fruits, molasses, coffee, finishes with some smokey notes.
Medium carbonation and body, smooth and easy to drink.
Enjoyed this one

3.83/5  rDev +13%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 341ml. bottle.

Appearance: A dark brown, definite red tinges and a good 4-5 fingers worth of creamy foam. Lots of lacing to go around.

Smell: Strong malt, nutty, caramel, roasted grains and the bottom of a coffee pot (not in a bad way).

Taste: Mix of some dark fruits, nut shells, slight chocolate and some spices in the finish. Some wood and creamy coffee.

Mouthfeel: Starts out thin a bit and grows out a bit more robust in the finish. Some bitterness reminiscent of coffee. Good but could be better.

Overall: This was a hard one to classify. The website calls it an ABT/Porter and will it does have traces of those, it semed to fit more in the brown ale category. For the ABV it has, would have expected a fuller body. Still, this is a good effort and it doesn't drink like 10% at all.

From the bottle into a pint glass

A: deep dark brown, almost no head, and what is there gives way quickly.

S: the aroma is molasses, caramel a bit of coffee and malts.

T: similar to the smell, but the coffee is bit more there. Oddly I am reminded of cherry twizzlers too.

M: thin with medium carbonation. A bitterness is also present.

O: consider me underwhelmed with this beer. I usually love a brown ale and I think I would pass on this one if it were offered to me again.

2.65/5  rDev -21.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

341 ml bottle into a shaker pint. Label declares that this is Lot 4.2. Not sure what that implies.

Look- Deep burnished brown, two fingers of head, sticky looking, lacing rings the glass.

Smell- Olives, most definitely. Not particularly unpleasant, but odd. Strong burnt caramel, cherry liqueur, almond, swirling brings out a more maple-like aroma.

Taste- Similar to the nose, almond, bright stone fruits, the subtle hop bitterness is subtle indeed and only makes itself known with a light herbal flavor in the aftertaste. Sweet, significant residual sugar with a vanilla/toffee flavor.

Mouthfeel- Smooth, medium body, creamy with a bit of unexpected dryness towards the finish. Lighter than expected. Not boozy at all for 10%, although it coats and sticks a bit.

Overall- It's alright, you wouldn't know that it's 10% and it's got a few nice/interesting aspects. It's somehow not quite right, however - what I interpret as an unpolished homebrew experiment feel with too many slightly off characteristics. I can't really recommend it, as I decided fairly quickly not to finish it.
