Very good. Lots of toffee, dark caramel and brown sugar. Very sweet with a nice warming alcohol presence to cut through the sweetness. Well done!
I had the 2008 version this past weekend, and got pretty much the same flavours coming through. Was very interesting towards the bottom of the bottle when all the 'sludge' was later added; delicious.
Still got an '06 to crack open one day, unless Viggo really insists he wants it back!!
But tonight it was:
Muskoka Mad Tom - finally made it to Alberta. A real nice, citric, hoppy, balanced IPA.
Muskoka Summer Weisse - A real nice, fresh tasting weisse.
Phillips Amnesiac - nice subtle change in recipe, doesn't appear to come across as sweet as previous.
