Bottled@PBF VIII. Slightly hazy ambery brown colour with small off-white head. Aroma is wood, canilla, caramel and some slight wooden notes. Flavour is fruity, some slight roasted notes along with quite strong tart wooden notes. This left a bit strange in my books.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of a chill trader bro. Pours a clear reddish brown appearance with a creamy, lasting brown head. Roasty chocolate, a touch smoky, caramelized grainy, light coffee aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Dark chocolate, a touch metallic, cola, burnt, a touch smoky, sweet malty flavor. Doesn’t blow me away but it is enjoyable.

Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 A decent stout interrupted by this pale ale. I think detracts rather than adds. The bit of smoke in the initial aroma and taste was nice. After that a pleasant and drinkable beer, although nothing outstanding to say about it, other than slightly thick mouthfeel though a drop of acidity.Bottle from recent Premiere trip.
