I enjoyed a growler of this during a recent trip to the Elbow Valley. It is a well-crafted stout. It pours with a lovely, lingering, creamy tan head. The primary flavours include coffee and semi-sweet chocolate, with a healthy dose of roasted malt. Overall, this is a very enjoyable stout.

Brand new brew from Brewster's, with a great name ... Way to take the power back yo. An opaque brown-black with just the odd flash of red here and there, with a rather anemic spattering of tan foam dribbled across the top. I immediately got a decent dose of chocolate, coffee, and dry ash on the nose, with all these roasted elements offset just a little by a hoppy citrus zest. Palate is chock full of chocolate and black malts, but again with some orange and lemon rind to add an acidic tang which works to complement the acidity from all the dark malts. Bitter and rich, with dark coffee, molasses, and wood char accompanied by some sweeter milk chocolate and rather covert dark raisin, red grape, and melon fruity notes that become easier to pick out once you habituate to the bitterness. Wonderful complexity with some surprisingly discernible hop flavors for such a heavy dark brew. Full-bodied and chewy, with a fairly smooth, creamy mouth feel. Finishes semi-long, less lingering than expected but with a pleasing earthy, woody depth. I am reminded of Deschutes Obsidian Stout, not the first time these guys have made me think of a Deschutes brew with some of their rotating offerings. Not that this is a bad thing.

P.S.: Do people really have to add new Brewster's beers just because they tried said brew in Edmonton rather than Calgary? These beers need to be consolidated, but in the meantime, I think its OK to review a Brewster's beer wherever the person who added it resides rather than adding a duplicate entry. Could just be me.
