Great dark stout. Hard to find but when you do hunker down you are sure to have a few.

On tap @ Waterfront Wines in Kelowna. Inky brown-black with no head at all. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, cigar box, very lovely. Flavour is coffee dominated, but balanced nicely with dry roast. Finish has a light acidity. Very drinkable, flavourful, balanced stout.

(On tap at Christie’s) No head, even less than the typical headless stouts, quite roasty and the coffee notes are at the forefront here. It just is. No nuts for me, no chocolate for me, just coffeeish stout flavour. Mouthfeel was quite nice, not too watery. Thank goodness because watery stouts suck.

On tap at an Irish pub. Almost flat. No carbonation, server said that was normal. Guinness like appearance. Not bitter, not sweet. More carbonation would enhance mouthfeel. Disappointing. Too light around. Light flavour, feel, aroma. Needs more bitter, hops, and malt. I was expecting more... those darned expectations.
