750mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of moderate smoked malts, some vanilla, cocoa, and some roasted malts. Flavour of fairly intense smoke, roasted malts and cocoa. The smoke becomes a lot mellower the more you drink. Easily drinkable and smooth on the palate. No hint of the 9.5% ABV. Good stuff. Oakes (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2009

Bottle, 22oz, at RBNAG-11. An unclear, brown beer topped by a small, light beige head. Ham-like notes in the aroma, roasted, and with some caramel and dried fruits. Some bitterness towards the end of the flavor, with ham, roasted notes, caramel and dried fruits. Full body. A bit too much on the ham-side this one, sort of unusual, and also quite nice. 111015
