Wind & Sail Dark Ale

Wind & Sail Dark Ale is another entry from Picton, Ontario's Barley Days Brewery. I had a 341mL bottle at a pizza joint during a weekend escape to Kingston with my love. The bottle features a reproduced oil painting of a clipper ship (though it's hard to tell from my terrible photograph). W&S comes in at 5% alcohol. It pours a dark brown with reddish highlights and is topped with  thin and quickly dissipating cream head. It has an aroma of brown sugar and molasses.  The flavour is roasted, with some molasses and muted notes of cacao. It finishes with some decent bitterness.

This was a pretty tasty dark ale.  It left me thirsty for more.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
