Enjoyed in a wide mouth glass.
330ml bottle at 10deg C
A dark ale wih substance. Excellent product at a great price.... $3.65/ea at the LCBO.
S- Light and thin. Not indicative of what the flavor is like
T- Excellent! Very enjoyable. Light on the tongue cold. Opens slowly to expose a light nutmeg flavor. Once it warms it does power up but not hot by any means. Having this one with 6mths since purchase I don't think hotness can be subdued yet.
M- Smooth. Leaves a touch of bitter nut at the end. Carbination stays and stays and stays. VERY lively.
O- Very very good. Will definitely cellar a few.
I don't know why the reviews bash this offering after aging too long however at the price I will try to see how they age every 6mths on every year's batch. Will update this review as I do.
This excellent little dark ale will pair very well with... Hamburgers
I do cook from comfort to natural to gourmet but do believe in keeping it simple for the most part. Hamburgers will accent this slightly heavy beer. Keep your toppings low and simple and this pairing will compliment each other very well.
