341 ml bottle purchased at the brewery in Halifax and consumed the same day.
Pours a nearly opaque, dark brown with a good tan head and decent lacing.
Malty aroma of moderate strength for style with some subtle complexity.
Flavor: more average but still caries a little complexity and a very good sweet-bitter balance.
Good, medium carbonation; medium bodied.
