This beer just happened to be on tap at Christie's Carriage House while we were visiting Victoria. It was a lot darker than I thought this beer would be for a honey ale. It was sweet, but quite drinkable. A pint was just perfect, anymore and it would have ended up too sweet.
OMG this may have been one of my favorite beers in all of Canada. We made a specific trip to a bar just to try this one. I loved it! It tasted somewhat similar to the Mocha Death from Iron Horse, but it was so delicious. I wish this was more readily available where I live!!
The head on this beer was quite dark and it was really heavy. It was really delicious and you could definitely feel the 9.2% ABV. The beer was flavorful and compared to some of their other beers, particularly their porter, it had a million times more flavor.
Husband's review: I was drinking their IPA. See that hand in the background? That's me. It was ok.
Yum! Hoppy. Flavorful. I was quite surprised with how strong the flavor was. I would suggest this 100% if you like hoppy beers. It's got 102 IBUs! This is seasonal though, available December - March, so be sure to keep an eye out for in that part of the year!
Husband review: I love this beer. It's one of my favorites and I could drink it time and time again and never be disappointed.
This beer must be called whip because it looks like whipped cream on the top of my beer. That head was impressive and took forever to go down. Random fact - this is the first beer husband poured himself in 7+ months. I poured all the earlier ones.
My big tip for enjoying this beer is don't inhale while you're drinking. As a matter of fact, don't even think of smelling this beer. It smells like a wet and dirty bar rag. I was enjoying it much better before I started drinking and smelling at the same time. Had I kept drinking without smelling I would have been fine. I don't think I'll be drinking this one again
