Rating #1021 - March 11, 2014 - $17.59CAD for a 1.89L Growler from Coop (no growler bar, shipped direct from brewery). Dark brown pour with a bubbly tan head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is coffee, and roasted malt. Taste is strong roast malts, hint of coffee and nuttiness. Finish is dry, somewhat bland but a lingering malty sweetness. Just OK.
