COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special beer has been brewed using Munich malt and golden oats to give it a beautiful biscuit backbone and a creamy smooth finish. Fuggles hops add their signature earthy and rich character before maturation in bourbon oak unlocks delicious flavours of vanilla and toffee from deep inside the oak grain. Available exclusively in all provinces of Canada (except Quebec and PEI).

Bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma, which is sweet as usual with these guys, of vanilla, wood and biscuity malt. Sugary sweet flavour of vanilla, wood, biscuit and some light peat. Average bodied. One of their better beers but I still donít like it.

sweet and malty at finish. definite oak presence gives it the bourbon taste - just not sure if i like that in a beer.

Sammy (8665) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
2011 vintage, kept a half year old. Way too smooth. Easy drinking but very uninteresting. Rum and slightly hazy coloured body, a little creamy lace.
