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

Sampled at Great Canadian Beer Festival. Surprised I’ve never rated this as I seek it out every year at Beer Fest. Solid, reliable, all-around good stout. Lots of roast, dry, none too sweet but with an easy bitterness. Full-bodied, round and creamy.

Tap at micro. Pours a jet black with a solid tanned head. Nose has chocolate malts, roasted coffee and dry smoky hops. Taste is really dry coffee based. Bitterness just clings to the palate leaving it dry. Late coating of chocolate. Pretty solid stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best Stouts I've ever tried. Outstanding Color, aroma, fullness of flavor and very satisfying. A true BC Gem. MB -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Found this in Salmon Arm years ago, fell in love. Can find it in very few places, but sure to please when found! Rich but clean taste.

DuffMan (6797) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
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.
