2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear red brown color with minimal white lacing. There is a light candied malt aroma. Palate falls a little thin but overall a nice drinking brown. An award from 14 years ago might be a little out-dated.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the Hamilton Place location. Pours a burnt sienna brown with small khaki head. The aroma is toasty with a slight hint of caramel, even a touch of cocoa, a slight earthy note, slight dried cranberry, and a bit of toffee. The flavor is toast, a hint of charred wood, a hint of toffee. Not as sweet as the aroma would have me believe. There are some earthy notes and some odd fruity hoppiness that comes across kinda like strawberry. Ok session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at brewery (Charlotte location). It pours mahogany, with both a light head and suds lacing. The nose has some molasses, malt and tobacco notes. Flavors are interesting, of chocolate malt and light cloves. The finish is a slightly nut-bitter chocolate bark... clean and neat. The mouthfeel is light with a medium body and refreshing palate. Decently done.
