Bottle from my brother in-law. Pours an opaque colour, minimal to no head that is nothing but a ring, some tiny presence of lacing. Nose is roasted malt. Tastes sweet, malty, not much present other than that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single from the LCBO. Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy beige head, decent retention and some thin creamy lace that disappears quick enough. Roasted malt aromas at first, with notes of coffee, chocolate and even mild hops eventually come out. Smooth mouthfeel with a slight bite in the finish. The base of the taste is the roasted malt again, but with some dark fruit hints makes it taste like a porter, but the feel is not. Not a bad beer and better than I expected.
