This is my go to stout! At any time a bomber of this goes down sooo smooth, almost too smooth. At above 8% it sure has the ability to go down quick. Beautiful in the glass. Dark fruit aroma, with coffee and chocolates as well on the palate. Some may not like it, some may think its too cheap in a sense...but to me, for the price, year round availability and great all around character of this brew, it's a winner. Cheers!

Pours with a deep black color and a medium tan colored head with moderate retention.
The aroma is very pleasant and inviting. Roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and some coffee.
Tastes bittery and roasted, with some coffee and little caramel in the back.
Very drinkable, creamy and full of taste.

Enjoyed via the LCBO for around $2.50/330ml bottle. Served at 10deg C in a medium body wine glass.

A- Excellent! Opened with a mighty pop and brown head 2" high that dissipated down to a thin film in a couple of minutes.

S- Very good. Caramel, malts and other stout goodness

T- Almost as good as it looks. Pretty nice for mass production beer.

M- This one let me down a bit and dragged the whole rating down... A bit bland, dry, carbonated too much and a bit metallic.

O- Very good. If they could get this nice stout a lot creamier and possible a hint of Sri Lankan/Indian coffee style that would really pick this up.

Food Pairing...

This wonderful mass produced stout went well with... Lamb Shank. An excellent slow roasted lamb shank with garlic mashed potatoes and root vegetables in a reduced balsamic glaze.

Enjoy!
