3.54/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

375ml bottle, 4.4% ABV, sold in pretty expensive six-packs up here in the Great White North. Zero suggestion on the label of style, beyond 'old', and 'ale', and I'm guessing that this is nowhere near an 'old ale'.

This beer pours a clear, very dark cola-highlighted roan brown hue, with two fingers of tightly puffy, and somewhat bubbly tan head, which leaves some random geological rockface lace around the glass as it genially recedes.

It smells of semi-sweet roasted caramel malt, bittersweet cocoa, earthy yeast, softly astringent cold coffee, oily packaged nuts, a bit of toasty smoke, and very subtle earthy, leafy hops. The taste is clammy bready caramel malt, a sort of soaked and put away wet, weakly smoked ash, underwhelming chocolate and coffee notes, and mildly bitter leafy, floral, and weedy hops.

The carbonation is pretty sedate, barely even noticeable at times, the body just on the lee side of medium weight, and plainly smooth, nothing else really manifesting here to mar the status quo. It finishes off-dry, the caramel malt, mild chocolate, wet bread, and earthy, leafy hops closing up shop.

Not a bad brew, but kind of thin, and somewhat underwhelming, even for this generally anemic style. There's enough flavour to make a go of it, if moderation and sessionability are your goals for the night, but for a singular experience, this just doesn't have the legs.

3.43/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a dark mahogany color with a good tan head that fades slowly to good lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt, a mild blend of coffee and chocolate with just a hint of caramel sweetness.

T: Taste of roasted malt, some bittersweet chocolate, coffee and a bit of caramel sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Medium body, crisp, smooth and creamy. has plenty of carbonation.

O: Surprisingly good beer that goes down easy. This is a quality beer from a brewery I did not expect much from. Worth checking out.
