BrewGoblin (527) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
You can really taste the full moon....okay, so you can’t, but this is okay. A fairly enjoyable brew but it suffers from the same thing that all Wychwood beer seem to have, a very watery body. Vanilla, caramel, raisin and brown bread comprise a rather cloying aroma. Fortunately there are just enough herbal hops to reign the sweetness in. Overall, this is an okay tasting clear ruddy amber brew with a sweet finish.

Strangebrewer (947) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
bottle. Poured clear brown with a thin head. Woody malt aroma. Medium body, prickly carbonation that ends with a slight burning alcohol finish. Caramel malt, nutty with spicy herbal hops, a bit tart.

In Toronto, there are only two places that have this bottle. So I went the one at Jane × Dundas West, taking 30min. I have longed this for a long time. You can see my high expectation. And it did’t betray me. It was not beyond my expectation, but the expectation was so high, so that means it is good enough. Dark brown color. Fruity aroma, a little chocolate malt. Smooth, sweet. Not bitter. Full body. Strong.
