A very drinkable and balanced achievement. Bang on the style, jet black, citrus aroma, roast right there. Above average mouthfeel.LCBO.

Freaky_tiki (526) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Random purchase at LCBO turns into a winner. Pop the cap off & dig that crazy crushed citrus aroma, daddy-o. Pours blacker than a neo-con’s conscience with a two finger tan cap. A pour joy to drink: popping hops, punchy palate, subtle notes of licorce & wet ganja, and ending with a throaty aftertaste. Word to the wise: if see one of these beauties on the shelf you should grab a fistful.

Spab (2359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a very dark brown with good-sized, lasting tan head. Aroma is nicely balanced between roasty malt and citrusy and resiny hops. Flavour is roasty, almost ashy malt with some fruit and licorice and solid citric/piney hop presence. Lingering bitterness in finish. Very nice.
