This caught my eye immediately in the beer section of my local supermarket. A little pricey for a 4 pack but worth every penny! Boy is this a wonderfully complex beer! Lovely dark reddish-brown color. Small head that dissipates quickly, not much lacing, but don't let that fool you this is a complex beer with a heavy alcohol. Nose: dark fruit like cherry and grapes, dark chocolate, smokeyness, spice. Taste all the aforementioned plus a salty note and malt. It's so complex you won't ever taste the alcohol but after about Midway through a bottle you will catch a very nice buzz. This is the type of beer you can sit and savor for a good while just drinking one bottle.

These Canadians can sure put out a beer...

I can describe this high ABV beer in a single word: Unique. It had a very unique look with the dark brown, red highlights and thick but quickly dissipating head - enough remained for lacing to be visible. Unique in smell as it did not have that overpowering boozy tang to the nose and for that matter on the mouth. Though I will admit, it started chugging it almost and then it hit and I had to slow down (I think Imma gonna sleepa gooda tonight...) Anyway, unique taste due to this light boozy background that hits you later, and hits you it does. A very good brew and a unique representative of the style.

Pours a dark brown with a two inch, fairly well retained tan head that left nice lacing. Smells and tastes of dark fruits (figs, prunes and raisins), yeast, spices, some sweet malts, bread and a hint of tobacco. Medium to heavy bodied, well carbonated, slightly dry finish.

Nice look with dark brown body and a dense white head.
This beer is very spicy with pepper, cinnamon, etc.
Some dark fruits, prune and dates mostly.
Nice quad
