I enjoyed this stout on tap at the Bell Buoy restaurant in Baddeck, NS, and then visited the Big Spruce brewery a couple of days later. The taste is a complex mixture of grains with a good balance, and a lighter body than most other stouts. This is my first beer review, so I don't have all the lingo down, but this stout accompanied the seafood better than I expected, with a very fresh taste and mouth feel. The head was good, but didn't produce a lot of lacing or overwhelm the glass. I highly recommend it, along with the Spruce Bringsteen offering from Big Spruce.
