Papillon (424) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2012 500 mL Bottle. Dark brown body with a small but tenacious creamy beige head leaving a "set of ribs" on the glass as it is sipped. Sweet aroma of malts with notes of caramel, coffee, and brown sugar, an accent of spicy hops, and a note of vanilla -like Wow! Check it out! Full smooth flavor of sweet and roasted malts, pronounced notes of coffee, treacle and caramel, yet refreshing in its own way. A nice little creamy hop bitter in the aftertaste with an interesting bitter-peppery-creamy finish. A gorgeous example of beer perfection. Delicious!
