Comes in nice 500ml bottles from LCBO. Pours a slightly off white foamy head and has a reddish amber colour. Has some dirty lacing. very nice. Aromas of malts, vanilla, and light hops. Flavours of mild chocolate, spices, hints of caramel, and a slight alocohol tinge. Mild carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a hint of cinnamon. Pretty smooth and fairly easy drinking.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear red-amber with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, dried fruit and a hint of spice. Sweet flavour of toasted malt, caramel, dried fruit and light spice with a dry, mildly bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.
