fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Tasting at Matt’s
Cloudy light amber color, ssmall head. Nice aroma of toffee, fudge, biscuity malt. Some malt flavor, light residual sweetness, strong bitterness, but it tastes like infinitely old.
Since there is no BBD on the bottle, the brewery is to blame. Not very pleasant.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very malty, with floral honeyed hops, syrupy caramel malts, and light spiciness. Flavour is on the sweet side, with caramel malts, floral and resinous hops. Perhaps a little old, though there’s no bottling date. Well-balanced and the malt profile carries this.
