mabel (5762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
[5002-20121208] Tap. Light maple caramel malt aroma. Clear, dark golden amber body with no lasting head. Sweet boozy whiskey barrel caramel malt flavour has a bit of a rough aftertaste. Medium body starts to build up booziness. Interesting. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
2012-12-08. Dark mahogany brown, headless but looks nice. 3+ Flavour is quite fruity and tangy, fairly vinous after the first sip, light woody accents particularly in the finish, fairly fruit. 7+ Average plus bodied palate is nearly flat, to its detriment. Aroma is similarly vinous, fuity character, light wood notes. 7+ Nice, barrel is fairly dominant, palate is light for the style and needs some carbonation to add a bit of liveliness on the tongue. Okay. On tap at Coles, Buffalo

Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy dark burgundy mahoganyish with a loose and thin tan head. Big tart vinous nose, blackberries and stone fruit. Creamy medium body with a little too little carb. Blackberries, caramel, light cream, and honey on the mid palate. Long vinous blackberry finish. Nice stuff.
