Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2011
Dark brown with amber accents. Thin tan head. The aroma is strange - some caramel/toffee stuff but thin and without much complexity. Sweet, dark brown and with good molasses notes. Maybe a bit thin, especially for the abv. OK sugar notes though.
