On tap at CBC, pours a hazy orangey bronze with a small beige head. Aroma of dry stone fruits, toasted caramel and dry bread. Flavour brings out very rich treacly caramel, some dark stone fruits, fairly prominent alcohol, and also a solid hop character. Very complex and well-balanced, with a sticky alcoholic and hoppy finish. Excellent stuff.
