On tap at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries. Pours a dark brown with creamy, lacy tan head. Aroma is quite roasty banana, other fruit and spice. Flavour is also very roasty with banana and some darker fruit as well as modest clove-ish spiciness. Lingering roasty finish. Rather nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at C’est What Summer Festival of Beer. Deep black pour. The aroma is very spicy. Licorice and clove with a bit of heavily roasted malt. Sticky palate with a fairly oily character. Some light sourness as well - this just doesn’t really work that well for me.
