can. Poured reddish-brown with a skim head. Toasty malt aroma, a touch of alcohol. Medium body, buttery mouthfeel, prickly. Sweet and toasty malts, burnt sugar, bitter herbal hops, boozy note. Listigovers (1385) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2016
Smells very sweet, molasses like, texture is thick and the taste is overwhelmingly sweet. Lots of rich grainy flavour and caramel, brown sugar, some spiciness, maybe even cinnamon, even though it’s a rainy day it’s a bit over the top for my taste. cyrenaica (1159) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016

The beer pours a translucent brownish red with a light tan coloured cap which lasts. The aroma is nutty malt, caramel, wheat, and floral hop notes. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is roasted malt, nuts, coffee, and finishes with a bitter hop feel. Not bad. My favourite Big Rig beer so far.
Deep copper colour. The aroma is soft and sweet. Some bread crust and
toasted grain. Slightly sweet flavour but with some moderate herbal
bitterness. jksipa (1047) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
Can from the LCBO. Clear dark copper pour with a small slowly fading tan head and patchy lacing. Nose is bready malts, dark fruit, toffee and nuts with a light grass. Lightly sweet brown sugar and a similar bitterness but less character than the nose. Mouth is slick and slightly thin with average carbonation and a crisp finish.

[Can (473ml)] Pours a deep bubbly orange-amber with an average size semi-lasting frothy tan head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of bready malt, fruit, toffee, nuts and a touch of chocolate and vegetal notes. Pleasant malty flavour along with a good amount of hops, some nuts and a bigger bitter finish then expected. Average bodied. Pretty good, I liked it.

This bock poured a dark Amber colour with a little light tan head. Scents include caramel malts, ripe fruit and brown sugar. First swig was quite smooth with medium carbonation. Slightly sweet, with flavours of brown sugar, over-ripe fruit and a little smoke. Finish is sweet with a light hop flavour lingering. Mostly malts...

Mahogany pour with off white head. Toffee and nutty aroma with a hint booze and dark fruit. Medium bodied with a toffee flavour and some brown sugar and nutmeg. It has a bit of heat as well. Not a terrible beer but lacks depth of flavour. Randy4Beer (515) - - JAN 24, 2016
A copper penny appearance, with a frothy white head if you pour it aggressively. Some spotty lacing being left behind as I drink it. Aromas of rye bread, and a hint of pepper. On the tongue, I’m getting rye bread, cereals, grains, and a nice underlying semi-sweet maltiness. Maybe even a hint of pretzels going on.
For me it is a refreshing change of pace beer, that I can drink occasionally, but it is by no means a great beer. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
473 mL can. Nice auburn colour, but not much head. Some maltiness in the nose, but not enough, and it also has this sharp, tart, fruity note that I’ve smelled before, and I’m not a fan of. A hint of booze as well. The flavour is too boozy, with not enough depth or complexity from the malts.
