    Hmm. I don’t think “Sparkling” is a word I’d have used to describe this. Not that I dislike it, but to me, it tastes more like a porter or stout. Malty, toasty, toffee, coffee.

    I agree with Russ, Sparkling is not a word I would use to describe this beer; I was expecting an Ale similar to the New Lang Syne, but I guess they meant that it was given the carbonation during the bottling process. The flavour was pleasant, with a nice toffee taste and a hint of coffee.

    This is a great brew! It’s similar to a Belgian dubbel in my opinion but a little on the malty side.

    I do find the alcohol comes through even though it’s just 6.4%. It isn’t offensive, just interesting.

    I really hope that Sleeman continues digging into the family recipe book to bring out special edition brews like this one!!
