(650ml bottle) Purchased at Liquor Plus Douglas. Pours a medium, rich brown head atop a black head. Toasted notes, cocoa bits and black licorice. The flavour is smooth - some soy and deep roasted and toffee malts and waffer bars. Bang on in presentation and execution. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and dark chocolate with hints of whiskey and vanilla. Taste is a bold roasted grain bitterness with some notes of whiskey balanced with a equally bold chocolate malty sweetness with some hints of coffee and vanilla. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Quite a tasty brew that I really enjoyed and recommend to others.

Near black pour. Aroma is roasted and a slight bourbon note. Body was a little thinner than expected. Flavour is coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla. The bourbon barrel ageing wasn’t too apparent. Good.
