3.13/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

330ml transparent bottle. Snifter glass. Bright copper color, clear appearance. White & close crown lasts as a thin layer on top. Yeasty, candy, sugar & alcohol aromas, solvent notes to he nose rounded by cumin & toffee hues on the deep backside. Crispy, herbal & phenolic upfront. Medium to full body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Spiced touch, vanilla cream & anise flavors are displayed in the middle, peppery & sugary flavors as well.. Long sweetish finish is touched by subtle woody hints. Kind heat & slight fruity on the aftertaste. As it warms intense vanilla, toffee & ripe apricot are felt.

3.98/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Golden copper filtered with a few fast rising bubbles, 4 fingers of off white yellow tinged head, some vertically lined lacing.

S: Fruity, apples, oak, wooden barrels, bananas, orange juice.

T: Oaken wood, light Check or German lager taste, light sweetness, light fruitiness.

M: Medium light body, low carbonation, dry woody texture like licking a plank.

O: Delicious beer that would pair well with food. Reminds me of a cross between a lager and scotch whiskey. Love the oak nature of this beer. Great to see it in a can.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 for a 473ml can. Served at 6deg C in a tulip glass

A- Pretty good. Opens well. Pours a good head that dissipates to a film within 1min

S- Ok. Vanilla and caramel

T- Vanilla and spice. Heavy to the tongue and cloves come through. You can definitely taste the barrel aging.

M- Ok. Not creamy at all but ok

O- Not bad. Will not buy again though.

Food Pairing

This ok little beer pairs well with... peanut butter sandwiches

Enjoy
