Appearance - Pours a clear redish brown 1.5 fingers head. head dies down quickly leaving a film overtop being replenished by some great carbonation.

Aroma - Very sweet, Caramel, Candy, malts, Some light hop in the backround. The reason for the low rating is because the smell doesnt stand out. its just not very strong.

Taste - Caramel, Grainy malt, Very light pine hops in the background followed by a peppery finish.

Feel - Medium bodied and sticky, prickly carbonation.

Overall - This is a good beer not the best ive ever tasted and definitely not the best from DDC but its a decent beer and I'd enjoy it again.

Clear veiled copper color. Creamy and foamy beige 2 finger head lasting around 8 minutes. Strong legs with some delicate activity.

Aromas and flavors of toffee, fruits, roasted nuts, grains, herbal and floral spices, slightly metallic and papery smell. Well balanced flavors having a rich bitter earthy oak like taste and toasty feel with some undertones of sweet dark fruits and caramel.

Slick full body with prickly carbonation. Strong and long finish ending with a bitter spicy and earthy dry mouth feel.

Overall : A warming, well crafted beer, having excellent flavors and intensity, only lacking an inviting pleasant smell and a slightly less bitter spicy finish for my personal taste.

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.

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.

Serving type: bottle

Quite good but not as spectacular as other beers from this brewery (Disco Soleil, Rose d'Hisbiscus, Moralité). Still, this is a decent altbier.
