Pours hazy brown with a large head.
Nose shows honey, cardboard, prunes, sultanas.
Sweet and rich flavours, vanilla oak, malt, sultanas, caramel. Dries out in the finish creating a slightly abrasive contrast to the initial flavours.

Exceptional beer. Great look, taste, and feel. Good head that dissolves to a low but laces the glass. First time having this beer and I will definitely keep one in my beer fridge from here on out.

Picked up a 550 ml bottle from TW Arrowhead in late November for $11.99. Bottled in 2013 - abv is 9.0.

Beer poured a reddish-brown with a very nice head upon the initial pour.

Nose is bready and sweet with some hints of barrel.

Taste is pretty well balanced between the sweet malts and hops. Definitely catching cherry as the dominant flavor along with bread and a hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel is full and smooth.

Overall this is a very nice beer that I am glad I had the opportunity to try. I am on the fence as to if I would pay $12 again for this. It is a very good brew but does not command a world class price.

Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of nice caramelized malt notes with subtle toffee notes is quite enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by caramelized malt notes with light toffee notes with a hint of residual sugar notes. Malt notes are really well balanced and showed clear cereal notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good example of a style that should be brewed more often.
