Sadly I didn’t think to take a photo.  You’ll have to trust my description.

Barley Days is a brewery based out of Picton Ontario.  Not exactly Toronto but I like to think I can keep my reach somewhat broad.

I had this brew at Dave’s. A nice bar on St Clair West.  Atmosphere was fun with a leafs game on the TV.

We had a pitcher so that may affect how it tasted.

Without further ado:

Appearance: Dark and full.  Rich brown. This is blatantly called a ‘dark ale’ so this isn’t exactly surprising.

Aroma: Very little.  Hint of chocolate.  This brew is mostly malted barley so that makes sense.

Taste: Chocolate and coffee.  Sweet but not over the top.  Hint of cherry.

Aftertaste: Malted barley.  Very earthy.  More hops but very light.

Overall: A good dark beer for the winter.  I’d certainly buy it again.  A pitcher is a bit much though as it’s very rich.
