cmacklin (387) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
300 ml bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a small brown head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, caramel and fruit. Sweet flavour of brown sugar, roasted malt, caramel and fruit with a dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A little too sugary for my liking.

manuelMTL (233) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours a black with a thin off-white head. Sweet, sugary nose with a hint of roasted malts. In the mouth it?s overly sugary with lots of candy sugar and a bit of chewing gum. Some coffee and chocolate in the end. Not much hop flavor. To sweet for me!

Surprisingly hop forward nose. O: OK but the aroma and flavor don’t match the quality of the look and feel.
