On draught at the Hart and Thistle in downtown Halifax, which overlooks the harbor. Enjoyed with a plate of mussels and calamari.
Poured into a Granite nonic. When it settles, what remains is a clear amber-copper brew with a hefty creamy head that lasts throughout the pint and produces sheets of lacing. Looks like a cream ale though a nitro tap.
Nose is toast, caramel, toffee, dry English tea-like hops, a bit of fruit.
Tasty English strong ale. Malty, cracker, bread, caramel, toffee, and a long dry tea hop finish.
Creamy mouthfeel, mild bodied - carbonation is low here, again giving it a cream ale feel.
Very nice brew in the English style, which suited the old Halifax harborfront vista laid out before me.

I had this beer at the brewpub in Halifax. Color was amber with very thin and sticking foam layer.
Smell was light caramellic and fruity with a nice hoppiness.
Taste was comparable with the other lighter colored beers from the brewpub, meaning caramellic and fruity with a nice English hop aroma, like Fuggles. This beer was different in alcohol content and bitterness, more of both. This still delivered a very drinkable beer, which is slightly sticky.

A-Slightly hazy deep copper with a medium light tan head that hung around reduced slightly and left decent lace.
S-Light caramel malt and a bit of herbal/fruity hop aroma from the Fuggles.
T-Rich, sweet caramel malt and the herbal/fruity bite of the Fuggles. Tasty with notes of toffee and mild chocolate flavours becomng present upon warming. Finished rather dry.
M-Medium to medium-heavy with long lasting caramel flavours. This one is rather thick and chewy.
D-A very drinkable beer. Plenty of body and flavours to keep you entertained. A nice beer to quaff sitting fireside on a cold winters night.

Lots of foamy head that follows you right to the bottom, lacing all the way. The beer itself has a nice dark red colour to it.
The smell was sweet and had hints of honey in it, and a sweet / demerara rum.
The taste is sweet, but at the back of the tongue is where it feels like it's registering. It also has a burnt sugar / creme brulee / sponge toffee quality to it, but that's just a subtle component. Not bitter.
Creamy, smooth feel. Could have a bit more carbonation for my liking... I know it's a draught on tap, but I like a bit of fizz.
