Pours dark red with little to no white head, aroma has notes of some slight caramel, spice, earth, some slight buttery notes. Taste is some weird buttery notes, with a touch of caramel, spice, some bread. Ok, but definitely a bit off. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2010
Deep amber pour. The nose is softly malty and slightly spice. Soft and a touch fruity with a distinct plummy malt character. Well balanced with a soft sweetness toward the finish. It’s pretty nice - easy drinking. Not as spicy as many examples.
