Lovely reddish amber, auburn hue capped by ivory foam that reveals a complex beer underneath. Aromas include toffee, vanilla, mild coffee, mocha and almond. These initial notes are also accompanied by darker fruits like dates and figs and a wisp of strawberry The body is equally as complex with toffee, toasted whole wheat and chestnuts leading the way. The flavours are smooth and soft and end with a quick finish and a hint of mocha at the end.

    Pours a foamy beige head and has a clear amber/rusty appearance. Thick lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, nutty and sweet, hints of breads and earthy hops. Some flavours of caramel and toffee malts, resin hops and some very mild spices. Some raisins also in the mix. Mouthfeel is astringent and somewhat puckering. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Not too bad, something seems a bit off, mainly in the finish, maybe too sweet.

    Big brown bottle at the LCBO. Pours a clean real dark amber colour with a beige head and some nice creamy lacing. Aromas of caramel malts, grains with hints of maple syrup and some good grassy hops to balance the sweetness. Pretty close to the same for the taste. A very good dark lager, but a little expensive for a beer of this style.

    The beer pours a translucent dark amber colour with a half inch creamy tan coloured head. The aroma is caramel, sugar, yeast, and a hint of hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, slightly creamy, with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet caramel with hints of yeast and earthy hops. Quite good considering who the brewer is.
