Brewed by:
Cannery Brewing Company
British Columbia, Canada

Style: English Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
The addition of natural maple brings this premium Stout a softer, smoother mouth feel and adds a touch of sweetness to balance the dark rich malts. It is a truly Canadian version of an old British classic.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bomber into a tulip.
L- Nearly pitch black with a tan head that quickly dissipates to almost nothing.
S- Strong smell of espresso, maple, molasses, dark fruit, caramel, vanilla, smoke.
T- Espresso and maple with a prominent chocolate finish. Nice balance of sweet and smoky but the nose gave off indication of stronger flavor.
F- A little watery and it is quite low in carbonation. It does have a nice creaminess that makes it quite warming.
O- Quality stout that delivers on the maple.

Purchased in a 650ml bottle. Pours black with a slim head. Smells strongly of coffee. Tastes quite a bit like coffee, as well, but with a subtle maple aftertaste. Ultimately, I was hoping for more maple, but it is quite delicious for what it is.

Great webby tan cream over ruby black that speckles. 4.25
Sweet roast and smoke with definite wood and sugar i.e. maple - tasty nose! 4.5
Tar and char, treacle and Baker’s chocolate, and threads of candy sweet maple. 4.25
Chocolaty finish and clean linger.
Medium, creamy, round. 4

Nails the concept and then some. A mean black stout underneath, coupled with deep maple notes. Packs in lots of flavor for 5.5%, and 35 IBUs tidies up nicely. Top of Canadian craft. 4.25

Picked this one up from my store today after sampling the Sap Sucker from Fernie yesterday. They seem very similar, despite that one being a porter and this is, of course, a stout. I'll be referencing Sap Sucker a lot, since it's fresh in my mind, and is similar to this in many ways.

The beers both look nice, and this one has a good three fingers of brown head, although I noticed this faded away rather quickly. Sap Sucker looked like an ice cream float, and certainly wins the appearance battle.

One thing that this beer deserves a lot of credit for over it's maple BC brother is that it actually has a good bit of maple in the aroma and in the taste. The usual coffee aroma and taste of these sorts of dark beers is present of course, but this one really makes me feel like I'm having a cup of coffee with some pancakes. The aroma is akin to taking a good huff from a maple syrup bottle, and it's certainly something I'm glad is there. The taste is not overly sweet, although it is noticeably less bitter than Sap Sucker. The feel is very tingly, despite not having a whole lot of carbonation.

Very good beer, nearly equal with Sap Sucker, I'd say.
