Flavours: Coco, milk chocolate, toasted malt, brown sugar, bit of a bitter hop like finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear, dark caramel with a one finger, frothy, off white head that clings to the glass. Aroma has notes of bread and caramel with slight hints of fruits, roasted malts, and nuts. Taste is balanced and smooth with a mild roastyness and a hint of hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly creamy texture that lends itself well to the roasted flavours. Overall tasty and very drinkable. I could see this being a go to, everyday darker beer. Cheers!
