750ml Bottle, LCBO. I have had this before, I think anyway, but no rating, so here we go. Black with red hues and a big fluffy white head. Dry roasty aroma - really dry and dusty, I liked it. Taste - nice. Slight roast over a medium soft body. Nice roast linger. Really flavorful . Easy to drink, alcohol hidden. Tastes like on cask. I will buy it again, great stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally rated on 8/1/08. It poured a deep mohagany, amber when held up to light, with a thick tan head. There wasnt much aroma to speak of. The flavor was overwhelming of alcohol i couldnt believe that it was only 6.5%, the other flavors were cherries, roasted malt, caramel and a little chocolate, but the alcohol drowned them out. If it wasnt for that i would have rated it higher.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany color with a nice head and lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Taste of roasted malt with a subtle touch of chocolate and coffee. Easy bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, nicely crafted, as the chocolate and coffee compliment not overpower the brew. Enjoyable beer to relax with.
