On tap @ Spinnakers. Clear amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet bread, caramel, and raisin on the nose. Sort of a maraschino/grenadine nose. Slight fruity acidity. There’s a decent fruit and earthy hop note to the flavor. Otherwise, a lot of toast, caramel, and bread. Sweet cherry candies and syrup.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cuivre ou même marron foncer avec une petite mousse marron. L’arôme du caramel, malt et scotch. Le goût est d’abord du caramel puis du scotch avec une finition doucement amer. C’est clairement un scotch, mais pas trop forte pour le style.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(From a cask at the brewpub) Extremely thick head, tasted off.... biscuits mixed with snot. I’m guessing it was the bottom of the cask? Wasn’t in servable condition.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hint of whiskey and smoke; grainy with a brown sugar sweetness. Medium-bodied, golden-brown with thin white head. Rich and hearty mouthfeel. The bottle I had was good, but I remember it tasting much better on tap (like most beers).

Toffee, caramel, roast, and a little earthy peat on the nose. Brownish amber, thin head. The flavor starts toasty and with notes of toffee and caramel, moving through a dryness and a little earthy peat smoke in the finish. Light, dry finish, easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpump at the brewpub
Dark amber to brown color. Mild aroma of chocolatey malts. The flavor has caramel and some chocolate trace; the low carbonation helps the mouthfeel, which is semi-dry; the bitterness is quite low. Good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Victoria brewpub. I found this one incredibly non-descript. Generally sweet, dark, but no real malt backbone or much to it. Kind of boring.
