COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a near-black brown with thin creamy-tan head with decent retention and some lace. Aroma is sweet, notes of licorice. Taste is... disappointing. Watery bready malt with some chocolate - more like a porter - and surprisingly present hops (that bit no altogether bad, but puzzling). Slightly sour, notes of dark fruit. Thin body, medium carbonation. If this had been marketed as a porter, I think I wouldn’t have been so disappointed & confused.

Bahumat (110) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
A dry irish stout more or less indistinguishable from Guiness. Nothing wrong with it, but not much right with it either. Just a hohum dry stout. Very nice nose to it though.

Light coffee aroma. Looks nice in the glass. Standard coffee and chocolate flavours. A bit thin on the malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing wrong with it but there are far too many superior stouts available to bother with this one again.

maley1 (781) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
Black pour with foamy large beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and slight coffee. Taste of burnt roasted malts, cocoa powder and faint coffee. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a dry bitter finish. Average at best.

MrFecesious (952) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
650mL bottle. Pours a dark brown and a generous tan cap settling to a bubble island and sticky lacing. Aroma of metal, chocolate, mud, coffee, biscuit. Taste is sweet and bitter. Fizzy and creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish upfront that thins out drastically.

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
[Can (355ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a very dark brown with red hues and an average size frothy tan head. Aroma and flavour of roasted malt, lots of leafy hops and notes of coffee and chocolate. Quite dry. Average bodied. A fine Stout.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
2014-05-02. Black body with a modest tan head. 3+ Aroma is dry and lightly roasty. 3+ Flavour is similar dry roasty malt, moderate malt throughout. Light cocoa and treacle undertones. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Held up well but I suspect it is a touch drier and thinner than it started out. Can is well past best before, but remains enjoyable. Can via trade with Ferris

slimspady (178) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
Looks good with a dark black pour and decent tan head. Malts and coffee but fairly bitter and aggressive. Brewer should stick to IPAs.

Reimer96 (1197) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
Pours a clear dark brown with a huge frothy long standing brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa and a creamy mocha Aroma with some light hop aroma. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, bitter cocoa, a creamy mouthfeel and a nice dry finish. Mouth feel is medium low with a medium high carbonation. Mouthfeel needs to be fuller for the style and could use a bit more oatmeal sickness. Good oatmeal stout that I’d just add more oatmeal to make it fuller and slicker.
