Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a deep black with a thick tan head. The nose is awesome. Caramel and cocoa with a bit of soft smoked malt and a touch of saltiness. There is a little bit of plummy fruit character through the middle. Soft sweetness on the palate with some nice fudgey character. A little bit of soft cocoa with a nice light roastiness.
