2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
1L bottle cellared for 1 year. This might have deadened the flavor, I did not have a fresh one. The flavors were subdued. Malty first, with chocolate and a hint of raspberries. Alchohol lingers in the finish, but the other flavors fade quickly. Sticky like a good Scotch ale but not payoff in punch. I would like to try this on tap next time.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft - Rich toffee and nice brown sugars. Deep dark brown with a decent Light brown head. Toffee and nice toast with a bit of bitterness. Just like a gingerbread sticky pudding. Nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours decent with a creamy head, it has a fatal flaw with being too watery. It's grainy flavor has a positive effect but it lacks the overall substance to make this out standing

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is caramel malt and hops. The appearance is red brown. The usage is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall underwhelming.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cool to run into one of these beers in D.C. Hope more Canadian breweries begin to export, and would definitely like to see some King heffy show up around these parts. Pours brown with decent head and lacing. Some oak with some barley mash malt. Light citrus sour element in finish. Tap at Black Squirrel.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Pours cola brown with a massive lasting foamy head, a bit of lacing, lots of tiny bubble streams.
Nose: sweet caramel/toffee malts with some barley (lvl-7)-pungency.
Attack: crisp fizzy, alcohol detection w/ caramel
Mid-palate: (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) deep caramel malts, cola, barley, mild smokiness
Finish: roasted malt exhale, residual caramel malts, oaked malty sweet finish.
Summary: It drinks quite heavy for a 7% ABV beer, but it does at least have good flavour and body in the mid to finish.
