Rich, malty aroma and terrific mouthfeel. Some sweetness that the alcohol modifies to a satisfying mouthful of flavor. A dangerous brew; it"s hard to stop.

On tap in YEG airport, then 750 ml bottle from LCBO in Dundas. Pours a reddish brown with off white head. Sweet caramel malt on nose with distinct aromas of dates, dark fruits, a bit fruity/bready. Taste follows with caramel malt - dates - raisins and brown sugar - like drinking cinnamon raisin bread. Smooth full creamy mouth feel with some underlying booziness. Fantastic.
