1/2 Gal. growler. (waiting for 6 packs, but not sure if I'll ever pass on the growlers) Pours out in red-brown, finishing a deep amber that you can look right through. Nice tan head that goes down to the sides.
Smells malty with a good padding of hops, some rich nutty tones too. There is just so much taste to describe here. Rich buttery, chocolate maltiness bring you into a nice tangy fruit filled adventure involving prunes, grapes and pears. Your mouth drifts info the forest where you are surrounded by maple-rich flavors mixed with the trail mix in your pocket; nuts and raisins. The pleasant bitterness your left with at the end is like having deja-vu, you taste it all over again, with the fruits, nuts and sweets drifting back over your tounge as you gasp for air.
Medium-full-full (not quite full) body perfectly holds the emense amount of flavor that resides within this brew. The half gallon of beer is easily consumed and makes you happy that you bought and drank all 64 ounces of it.
Excellent craft yet again from Lake Louie. It's hard to pass on the ones you know you like to try out the rest. Porter or Cream Ale next? Stop reading this and try it for yourself. :D

On tap at Brickhouse.
A. Pours a pretty mahogany with a nice off-white head.
S. Fruity nose. Grapey, yeasty, toasted grain.
T. Taste brings fig, caramel, light roasted grain, cooked sugar, hint of hop bitterness, chocolate.
M. Thick-bodied with light carbonation.
O. Almost too sweet, yet not quite. I like this.

A- Deep red, getting to that brown stage. Head is tanned and about a finger and a half. Light lacing.
S- The smell is sweet, to be expected. It is caramelly, and sweet bready, with some complexities that hint at but never really develop into smokiness.
T- Same here. The sweetness is on par for the style with some lightly roasted notes as well, but it is pretty much sweet front to back. The caramel is there, but chocolate/smoke/other just wasn't present for me.
M- Medium-full body. Smooth, somewhat low carbonation.
O- A decent wee heavy, but I didn't find it as complex as some reviewers. A decent drinking beer, but I didn't find it to be outstanding.
