4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark pour. Very piney aroma with some dark fruit as well. A big blast of pine on the tongue, along with citrus, rum-soaked caramel malts (but it’s not boozy) and black cherries. Sticky and bitter. I liked it a lot.

6-pack that followed my home from the LCBO after work. Been looking forward to trying this one for some time now. Pours maple syrup in the class with a creamy cap on top. Big pine presence, with some citrus notes, in the hops, all nested on a thick bed of sappy malts. Finish is bitter & sticky. I don’t agree with those who say it is a tanked up Boneshaker, as this one is clearly more angular. Booze is pretty stealthy & if I play my cards right a few of these will challenge my stride tonight.

It pours copper with golden highlights; the head is off white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: toffee, grapefruit, and pine. The taste is medium bitter with a heavy bitter finish; there are notes of: toffee, grapefruit, pine, rum, almond skins, a slight melon rind. The palate is medium heavy bodied with medium carbonation, and a long bitter finish. Overall, like a tanked out bone shaker.

Bottle. Medium orange, off white head. Piney and quite sweet, caramel and melon, with intense bitterness. A bit heavy handed for my tastes, but solid.
