Bottle poured at a tasting. Huge thanks to Bob for introducing me to a tick that I assumed would never come my way. Reddish brown pour. Earthy aroma. Nutty flavor with a long lingering sweetness to it. Loved the bottle. The beer was alright. Very fun to try.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2016 341mL bottle shared by Bob. I’m going to go against the grain. It’s sweet, watery, low hop but nothing offputting. I like the sweetness and I get a strong black rye bread aroma. DeanF (2470) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 27, 2015
Modest beige head and a coca-cola style of bright brown body with minimal head. Aroma of licorice with hints of barley. Taste has more licorice notes and sweet barley, a little weak on the mouth. Not a bad showing, there’s potential here but it could be a lot better. Luvystypotables (2028) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Extremely weak aroma of malt. Pours a clear dark brown with no head. Sweet malt taste with a watery feel and a mildly sweet finish. BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
341 ml bottle purchased singly from Sobeys Liquor, served in a plain shaker pint glass. Pours a clear, deep brown, with light carbonation and a moderately tan, fine, smooth head, leaving patches of lace. The nose is heavy on malt, spice, and aromatic wood; the flavor has a very noticeable umami presence, with what seems like salmon, smoky cedar, and light sweet spiced toffee. Mouthfeel and body is chewy and substantial, and the overall impression is like a lighter Imperial Russian stout. Its odd savory profile would probably be too much if served with beef or seafood; perhaps it would be a better compliment to a light pasta or salad. cmacklin (1241) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
