This has been kicking around the stash since it was on the LCBO's seasonal release for, I think, winter. Thick frothy lace-leaving tan head over deep chestnut ale. In the snoot, a bit of a tang like a Belgian dubbel - a comparison not dispelled in the mouth....minus the burlap. Very nice. I am thinking raisin, cherry, oak, vanilla, with mild tea astringency, maybe even some balsamic vinegar in there.
Pretty snazzy. High praise from the BAers.
