A pretty good stout from one of the more overlooked BC breweries living in the shadow of Phillips and its hoppy monopoly. Like most craft stouts, it’s a little too carbonated for my liking, but not nearly as carbonated as others. Tastes like a good malty stout with a mild chocolatey flavor in the background. Semi-bitter finish. Appearance is like the bottled version of Guinness Draught, dark black/brown. Overall, a decent local stout, very pleasant.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. 5.1%. Dark, dark brownish copper poor with a weak tan foam that bubbles away super quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, and caramel. Taste is roast malts, with a hint of caramel sweetness. Overloaded with toasted malt and bitterness, not quite the balance I was looking for. Still a good canadian stout.

solidfunk (2992) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Strong initial aroma of roasted malt. Very nicely done. But the beer doesn’t quite follow through on the aftertaste, with a light palate and weak leave. Pours black with good initial mocha head and some lacing. Finish is a little bitter and a little sour. Palate too much on the watery side. Bottle from my dad’s fridge.

Cirrhosis (1174) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Pretty much a black body with a tall rocky cap floating on top. Lighter aroma for a stout, roasted malts, liquorish, very mild coffee, I do hit banana and it ends with sour pennies. Light dry chalky chocolate served in a bar ashtray........... that sounds bad but I mean it in a good way kind of. Sweetness and fruit show up when room temp. DAM YOU VBS!!!! you say lime now that’s all I taste. Like all Lighthouse brews this is completely drinkable but falls short compared to others of the same style.

VertBaconStrips (2021) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
Near black brew, thick pillowy dark brown cap, wonderful silty lacing. Nice soft lightly roasted almond aroma, choco, nice roasted malts. Simple and solid. Hearty drinking beer. Long lingering malts, zippy something, mild fruit, lime, oatmeal, choco hiding, ya. Smooth, solid roast finish. Decent.

355ml brown bottle. Dark brown coloured brew with a small creamy beige cap. Good retention and ok lacing. Nose has chocolate, roasted malt and some nut. Taste has chocolate malt, coffee beans, light hops. Finishes with nutty and chocolate notes with light bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. A pretty basic stout, fairly enjoyable.
