330ml bottle from the LCBO, into a tulip. Best before March 2012.

Poured a dark burgundy/brown, almost opaque. Fairly dense dark tan head, a thick collar sticks around with a thin head. Nose has some dark breads, caramel and toasty malts. Taste has some toasted dark bread/cereals, some chocolate, toffee and light grain notes. Loads of malt flavour. No alcohol on the palate but catches up after a couple of bottles. Smooth, sticky and drying body and finish. Opens up and really becomes something else at around room temp. Didn't understand the comparison to liquid bread until I actually got into this. Really warming and essential drinking for the cooler months.

Pours a deep brown almost black and opaque. A small tan head dissipates into a wisp after a few seconds.

Aroma is some sweet bready malts maybe a bit of raisin.

Malty bready sweetness assaults the taste buds. Hints of raisins and fig before finishing with a little spicy hoppiness.

Not terribly thick on the mouthfeel so it doesn't get cloying.

I generally don't like more malt forward brews so I doubt I'll go back to this one often, but for the style it is pretty good. I was expecting a bit more complexity, but it's still good.
