Tried twice in T.O. Grey Cup 2012. Dark brown. Super spicy and malty but either the season or the spice seemed like a Moroccan Spiced Pumpkin beer.

Lots of fig and round spice in the taste, next to crisp hops, fruit middle with pale and toasty malts, finish dry-sweet with a slightly heavy-sweet body. Enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
June 23, 2012 - draught at "Session 99" - session #2. Lovely colour - hazy deep peachy copper with an average frothy/creamy tan rocky head. Smells like vegetables and fruits - not in a bad way - the figs, dates and raisins are definitely there, as is the cinnamon, plus there is floral bitterness and even some mint and I swear I got sweet potato too. Taste follows - very good; not sweet, just fruity and fig-y "carrot juice without the ’ick’" - not much alcohol or actual beer character - not sweet, it’s vaguely sweet. I was surprise how thin the mouthfeel seemed, and it was definitely under-carbonated - finishes quick, leaves a bit of gritty raisin and date skin aftertaste.

17OC12. Part of a pint shared by Luc at Loon. Hazy deep brown-copper with a small off-white head. Beautiful, rich, sweet, unctuous malts, faint cinnamon spiciness, deep toasty notes, some fruitiness, so rich and inviting, maybe some vanilla, beautiful. Medium+ body, moderate, fine effervescence. Tons of rich brown sugar, caramel, treacle, fruitiness, a touch of alcohol (appropriate), a little spicy, so nice; basically dry with mild bitterness and a full, richly malty and lightly fruity/toasty finish. Gorgeous

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at The Ship. Burnt sugar, some fruit cake, prune, and a nuttiness fill the nose, pours a dark brown with a tight mocha cap. Very sweet with a bit of hoppy spicinessébitterness that does not catch up to the sweetness. Medium body, with an oily texture. Long sweet finish. Works as a fireside sipper for warmer weather but it is simply too sweet for me to have very much of.
