Loved this better than the Guinness. Tastier! Drinking at Porterhouse central with ribs and wings.

Listed in the "1001 Beers To Drink Before You Die," this one will have to wait until I find it again for my review.

Purchased at the LCBO for just over $3.00 for a 500ml bottle. Served at 7deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 2" high brown head that films out within a minute or two. Very dark brown colour, almost black. What a stout should look like 100%!!

S- Missing out here. Not a lot of scent. Touch metallic unfortunately. Guess stainless steel just let this brew down.

T- Nice little bite to it. Has a malt backbone that is a bit weak but acceptable considering the alcohol level here. In Canada it's 4.5% which is WAY under what I usually drink in a stout. Well blended and mellow which is nice. Not the chocolate, malt or coffee bomb you would expect but it does have a better all around flavor then a Guinness. LOL there are no oysters in this brew. It is obviously sea salt and must be a name from days gone by.

M- Watery but I can't expect that creamy level of the standard high alcohol stouts as it's a different style although they are both stouts

O- Nice brew. Believe it or not it's a good summer brew due to the low alcohol percentage. It's ok to drink light stouts under a hot sun.

Food Pairing

This nice little brew went well with....... Corn chips! LOL I don't normally eat that kind of crap but it goes very well with this lighter stout. Don't try it with oysters as it will way overpower oysters. It's just a name people! LOL

Enjoy!!
