This Irish style stout is deep, dark, smooth and creamy. The use of oatmeal in the mashtun adds “silkiness” to the texture and body of this ale. Excellent paired with oysters, prime rib and your weekend brunch. Formerly known as Steelhead Stout.

Drinking now cuz it was in sale and we are tired from hiking out from Moul Falls in Wells Gray on a cloudless moonless night, feet soaked from standing in the middle of a creek with snowshoes on. Dark brown and a small bubbly head was all that the can would allow. Oatmeal, biscuit, some sweetness, cherry, light roast. Taste is so so. Light to faint bitterness. Weak roast, oatmeal, light choco. Dry. It’s ok and boring yet totally safe.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 Dark with too much foam. Very little flavor of interest. I expect better from CC.

There's nothing wrong with this beer, it's just spectacularly unspectacular. Thin on the body and lacking flavour for a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can - Roasted malts. Jet black thin white head. Roasted malts with a touch of bittersweet chocolate. A basic but decent stout, very sessionable if not interesting.

northropfrye (3198) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Pretty typical dry stout. Dark, white head, even has the texture of a Guinness. Nothing too interesting, but an okay beer.

Pours a dark brown with some light coming through with a thin beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and faint black licorice. Flavour is roasted malt, almost burnt notes, mild-medium bitterness(some from the dark malts and some from the hops), resin, light pine/citrus and a medium-high dry finish.
