Bottle from LCBO. Dark, burnished brown with a small head. Aroma is somewhat sweet and roasty, not bad. Flavours of caramel, nut and roasted malt, with a moderately bitter finish. Simple and well-balanced.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - APR 29, 2006
Pourd a fairyl dark but clear brown. Aroma of my bottel was lightly skunky thanks to the clear bottle. Not bad enough to really be a problem. Caramel flavors dominate with some roasted flavors in the background. A slightly better finish. A well balanced ale, and not offensive.
