Visited the brewpub in Toronto for the first time (2012). This one came with barely any head, has a dark amber colour. Weak lacing. Medium Carbonation. Aromas of malts and notes of caramel. Has a smokey flavour and aftertaste as well. There’s a slight alcohol smell. Bitter mouthfeel. Some whisky notes coming through, not as offensive as the St. Peter’s one though. pushkinwow (2910) - Ottawa, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
On tap at C’est What. Dark with a beige head. Moderate smoke, smooth, mild+ body and high carbonation, another easy to drink one but thin. rob6239 (677) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
Pretty good dark colour and faint head. Aroma is malty, smoky. Taste is smooth and light sweet. Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Jet black colour with a tan head. Hickory and slight smoke aroma, although muted, and has a malted backbone and roast. More hickory on the palate, medium bodied, and has a fast finish. a little bit disappointing and light brew, especially for the style.

Not a bad ale. The smoke isn’t all that apparent but what little is there isn’t bad. Evenly balanced mix of caramel and slight bitterness. Easily drinkable. Ontbeertaster (3208) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Tap, pours a nice clear black, aroma is smoky, the flavour is not overly smoky which was nice, it was pretty smooth with a nice smoke finish whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2012
Pours very dark dark amber-brown. Aroma of licorice and very muted smokyness, roasted malt. Okay... Disappointed. Spab (4143) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2012
On tap at C’est What. Pours a clear slightly reddish dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma has a huge blast of liquorice - hard to get much beyond that but there’s some roasty malt. Flavour is also big on the liquorice with some roasty, woody character. Woodiness lingers in the finish. A little thinner than I might have liked. Interesting but not something I’d revisit regularly.

Smells like a nice single malt. Muddled brown colour. Very strong smoky flavour with a touch of spice. Very unique beer! Nice.
