Notes: Cereal Killer Oatmeal Stout is rich and moderately dry with dark chocolate and fresh roasted coffee flavours. Surprisingly easy to drink, this stout will convert even the most fearful of dark beer drinkers. Slainte!

I arrived at Lunenburg's Ironworks Distillery 20 minutes before closing with two immediate missions - sample their wares and buy a bottle of rum and, afterwards, find a nice stout in a nice pub. Yes, I know, that's more than two missions. Five samples and a new bottle of Boat Rum later, I took the advice of the proprietor who informed me that the best stout in town is on tap at the Grand Banker, just down the road. And so I went. Yes. A resounding yes. Cereal Killer might have a silly name but the beer itself is serious business. This is a seriously delicious stout and one of the highlights, so far, of my trip to the Maritimes. Now for the rum...

Can: Poured a black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light black chocolate notes is quite enticing. Taste is a mix of light roasted malt with some chocolate notes with residual sugar notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Very well brewed for the style with good drinkability.

on tap at the source. their signature ale. dry and roasty with lots of malt. more of a brown ale. Not a good example of an oatmeal stout, that's for sure.
