Ok. Pours dark brown with tinge of red. A little lacing. Not much going on here. Finiishes with little taste one way or another, only slight sweetness and some barrel. On tap at brewpub.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma of perfume, toasted nuts and toasted malts. Flavour of toasted malts, some toasted nuts, a touch of dark dried fruits, and English hops. Very well balanced with a medium body. Good stuff.

Bottle, thanks for bringing it over Daniel! Dark chestnut, offwhite cream. Bready, light vineous fruity and roasted notes. Fairly roasted entry, slightly burned caramel, some coffee. Roast, honey, light bready notes, fresh herbal and grassy hops. Needs a little bit more chewyness - it falls a little bit flat towards the end. Mellow creamy mouthfeel. Dark roast aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark mahogany color with creamy head. Light dusty aroma, some caramel and some pond water; cereals; some boiled rice too. The body is much weaker than expected, some caramel flavor, mild and anonymous, with a bit of dustiness; correct bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from brewpub. Pours deep coppery brown with foamy light brown head. Roasty, toasty aroma -- crispy cereal and creme brule with a fine green, grassy accent. Lightly sweet, good balance. Light-bodied, thin, flat and with a short, very mild bitter finish. Not bad at all.

(Pint) Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a foamy beige atop a deep reddish-copper. Good malt and nuttiness. Very condensed flavours. Robust yet a tad thin. Good brew.
