Gentle aroma of grapefruit, bread, pine needles, some caramel. Clean and lightish bodied but not without slightly toasted malt presence. Gentle but insistent grapefruit before slightly earthy pine at the moderately bitter finish. Classy, polished.
Aroma of coffee, demerara sugar, heavy roast, some berries & chocolate. Despite strength, flavours have room to move - sweet dark sugars, cream, mocha, mellower roasted malt flavour than guessed. Roast, hop, coffee combine to balance sweetness well.Earned the Canadian Beer Day (2022) badge!
