reebtogi (5354) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2016
500ml bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some grassy and grainy notes. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with some grassy and herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with mediocre carbonation. Overall, this brew is quite sweet with a decent amount of bitterness, but how it won a World Beer Award in 2004 is beyond me.

Bottle. Pours is dark amber clear with thick stable tan head. Aroma is malty, light roasty, hazelnuts, very inviting. Taste is light sweet with a touch of coffee bittery, roasty mouthfeel. Light to medium body, nice creamy texture, awesomely well ballanced.
