Bottle shared by Ace. Poured a deep reddish-amber amber with a foamy light beige head. Aroma/flavor is just way to sweet, caramel, raisin, dough, loads of sugar, fermenting sugars....just so cloying. Blah....

Some kind of aroma jumped out when i popped the cap—milk chocolate, malt vinegar, saw dust. Makes my mouth happy, a creamy texture. Flavor leans to the sweet—more chocolate, resiny underpinning, cherry, alcohol. Pretty reddish brown with thin off white head. Powerful stuff, break out the snifters. Another well-crafted beast from the Gigantic folks.

Keg at Andrew Usher’s. Clear ruby body with a thin off-white head. No visible carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of shoe polish and overripe plum. Flavour of mashed strawberries, caramel and raspberry syrup. Full body with a chewy, sticky mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Drinks easily for the strength but the aroma is weird.
