Canmoore's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
Canmoore (490) - Ottawa, Ontario, - JAN 18, 2013
500 mL can from the LCBO (Bank & Walkley, Ottawa). Poured a clear dark brown with a huge frothy and lingering head, and massive lacing. The aroma was huge malt, with fruits and spice. The taste took me off guard, quite flavorful with lots of spice, dried fruits, and lots of smoked mash giving it a strong but pleasant scotch aftertaste. Very drinkable!!

Drank a ton of this stuff back when I was in university. Reddish brown pour, thin head. Caramel, faint dark fruit in the aroma, malty. Toffee up front, malty, a bit bready, a little bit smoky. Watery body, sweet finish. Little incentive to have it again.
