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!!
