3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
651ml bottle. Pours a dark chestnut with a walnut coloured head. Boozy nose with a startling amount of spruce, juniper, light eucalyptus, faint coffee, and caramel. The taste is also up front with resinous hops, light green tea, treacle, dried fruits, and juniper/eucalyptus with some spice in the finish. Wow. I wasn’t expecting much from this one, but it’s really damn good!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark and nearly opaque rusty brown. A medium thickness but long-lasting head with good lather. Aroma is predominantly lady-finger or Graham cookies, alcohol, and prunes. In the mouth it is lighter than expected, with subtle carbonation and excellently balanced bitterness. Coffee and spice finish. More crisp and far less cloying than I would have expected. Very good indeed. Drinks very easily. I’ll finish the 631 ml bottle before I know it....

Really like this one! Pours murky brown with nice head and lacing. Nose is sweet toffee and some pine. Notes of dates, nuts, cereal and piney hops. Tastes are medium sweet nd medium bitter. Really nice creamy mouthfeel with lively carbonation.

651ml bottle. Murky dark copper body, small caramel head with good retention and plenty of lacing. Aroma of caramel, hops, grapefruit, figs, Jonathan apples. Taste is surprisingly soft: burned sugar, roasted malt, floral hops, caramel, spices, black currant. Light body and soft, almost flat carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yes, 651ml written on front label (8.5% ABV and bottled on 30/01/13). Pours a dark copper colour with a big beige fluffy head that stays really long and gives out foamy lace. Beautiful hoppy nose with some roasted malts, mild dark fruits, light apples and caramels. No burning, but a nice warming alcohol. Thick mouthfeel with a light dry finish. The hop is nicely present across the flavours. Spices, fruits and the sweet malt is not so sweet in the taste. Hints of coffee enventually come out in the aftertaste. I have to save this is quite a nice different brew, being a nice strong beer with darker malts, but still, quite hoppy. A must try.

651ml bottle from the LCBO. aroma of pine hops, cereal, grainy malts, toffee, and caramel. body is thick and luscious. carbonation is soft. finish is medium bitter, and slightly sweet, with more pine in the finish. a great example and what i expect from the american strong style. reminds me of stones finest american strong ales.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark reddish-brown color with a 2 finger, tan head that dissipates to a cap. Had aromas of licorice, brown sugar, molasses, a bit of nuttiness, and some floral hops. Real sweet on the tongue, some bland maltiness, and a decent hop bite. Real thick and syrupy going down. I’m beginning to not think to highly of Lakefront Brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark ruby awith a finger of chocolatey head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is very sweet and hoppy with Pine and citrus hops, caramel and malt. Mouth has a slight roastiness mixed with a tropical fruit bite and citrus hops. A decent beer, but nothing to write home about.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Pours clear deep red with a big foamy/rocky lasting lacy tan head. Nose of caramel, booze, dried fruit, butter. Soft carbonation. Juicy. Medium mouthfeel. Lots of grape, caramel. Some yeast. Sort of has that caramelized flour cookie dough flavour we all like. Some malt vinegar. Citric sour. Mild background spices, cloves? Lots of sweet malty bready dough. Barley. Vineous. Alcohol is present but not forward. Sweet but pretty well balanced with a good amount of bitterness. This is a delicious and very nicely crafted brew. That was fun.
