Manitoba (Canada)

4.03/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours completely opaque with a big, 2 inch tan head off a vigorous pour. Lots of slow, sticky lace as well. Aroma is a bit dusty and musty off the top, like an attic, then moves into some rich milk chocolate mixed with a bit of bitter cocoa/dark chocolate. Caramel, vanilla, and some husky graininess round it off. Subtle but delicious.

Taste is very rich with lots of chocolate and caramel in the forefront with an almost rye-like graininess coming out as an afternote. Lactic sourness helps to balance things out a bit, roasted malt is subdued but there. Finish is fairly wet and musty again in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with a medium carbonation, just right for the style. This is a well-balanced and extremely enjoyable example of a style that can easily get too sweet for my liking. Well done.
