Pours a rich dark black with a lighty brown head with good head retention. Molasses, toast, chocolate and some bread on the aroma. On the palate those rich creamy notes amplify the toast and blend well enough with those choclate like malty notes. Good length. Good stuff!

Rich black pour with a generous fluffy light khaki head. Nice sweet and earthy roasty nose with a touch of chocolate and a wee kiss of cinnamon and roasted black malt. Smooth rich deep flavor with earthy cocoa and some roastiness and a smooth rounded finish from oats. Very enjoyable and dark and semisweet yet earthy.

355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a nearly black, dark brown with average-sized beige head. Aroma is predictably dark and roasty with notes of coffee and chocolate. Flavour is also quite roasty with lots of coffee and cocoa, as well as hints of dark fruit that provide a subtle sweetness. Plus body. Lovely creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.
