Living in Canada I can always find this beer and I keep a stock of it in my fridge. One of the best darker beers you can find. Great richness and depth.

A deep brown, verging on black pour. The head was short lived with very little lacing as the level decreased. No strong scent, outside of a mild roast malt and caramel. Very smooth, especailly after enjoys some strong RIP's during he week. Well rounded with not much bitterness, except at the finish, Some dark chocolate undertones, but mostly a lightly roasted malt. Not as chewy as I had anticipated, but still quite enjoyable. A good mid-week stout, very tasty but not too strong.

A: A nice light brown with some transparency to it, a nice one finger head at the top that leaves some lacing around the glass.

S: Nose on this one has a lot of caramel and roasty espresso notes that comes along with some malts and raisins on the tail end.

T: Almost follows the nose to a tee, lots of caramel and roasted malts, some raisins come through on the tail end as well.

M: Full bodied with a nice smoothness to it, slight carbonation as well.

D: One of the better oatmeal stouts that I have had recently, crisp and refreshing and a nice finish to go along with all that, not a bad beer at all, I think having it in Epcot-Disney made it tens times better.

I used to really enjoy this beer, but this latest six-pack was very soy saucey. The date indicates it is fresh as well.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.80 for a 473ml can. Enjoyed at 7deg C in a tulip

A- Very good. Very dark. A head popped up and was gone but the carbonation look was the opposite way it should have been.... ??

S- Pretty good and malty.

T- Very light but it's all there baby. The recipe is a watery Founder's Breakfast Stoutie

M- Here is where the light alcohol percentage and lightness on the recipe ingredients hurts this beer. More more more. Come on. The 70's song Andrea True sang!

O- Very good. With work this would be a killer money maker

Food Pairing

This wonderful beginning of a good beer went well with...... Tacos!!
