look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle into NB globe glass. Brewed and bottled in Canada.

A: black, thick with a frothy tan head.

S: toasty barley and malts. Dried fruit and some caramel and toffee.

T/M: Dry, medium bodied with light carbonation. Grainy with some hop bitterness. Dark chocolate, toasted bread. Bitter aftertaste really lingers.

O: very drinkable overall if you're looking for a light alternative to heavier American stouts and porters.
