Ferris (12117) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Bottle - Dark sugars, caramel and a touch of wood. Deep brown with a beige head. Sweet. dark sugars, caramel and a lingering sweetness and heat. Some boozy heat, but not offensive. Some berry fruit in the long finish. Easy drinking for what it is, but not worth the crazy hype in my books.

The taste is rich, oily, brown bread, malt loaf, crystal, earth, burnt cake, screen, warming brandy booze, umami action and other stuff. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel.
