Black with a brown head and a sweet chocolate roasty aroma. Sweet malty flavour and a bit roasty.

cmacklin (707) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2016
On tap. Pours an opaque black, with a large, frothy, long lasting, brown head, that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate and soy sauce with a bitter coffee finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

Really enjoyed the dark creamy goodness. Had a good head but not quite a Guinness thick one. The taste was great and it wasn’t overpowering. Old Yale has a good one here.

UXO (1339) - CANADA - FEB 11, 2016
Appearance: opaque black with brown margins, two fingers of rocky light beige head, moderate retention and minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: dark roast malt, grassy hops, earth. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body tending slightly to the watery, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration mild bitter and lightly tart finish. (3/5) Another less than memorable BC stout. It’s not great, nor is it terrible: it’s OK. Not sure why it’s won awards, to be honest, but hey, if it works for you, have at it. (12/20)

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
Good stout! Apparently won gold at the Canadian Beer Awards or something similar a few years ago. Nice dark pour with a fizzy brown head. Roasted malt and chocolates with some coffee and espresso.

Modest bright brown head and good black body. Roasted barley aroma with no complexity. Flavour is all roasted barley, almost to the point of over-roasting. Watery on the mouth. A miss for a stout, sadly.

Bottle. Roasted coffee, woody and dark chocolate aroma. Classic stout appearance with a dark yellowish head. Dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Smooth bodied with a long malty finish. Solid stout.

vadie (1203) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
Très noir avec une robe moyenne marron. L’arôme à plein du chocolat. malt torréfié et du café. En bouche il y a du malt torréfié avec du chocolat et café tout bien équilibré avec une bonne final amer. C’est bien équilibré et plein du corps sans être épais.

Apparently this beer one best beer in Canada for 2014. In my opinion, this makes the Sasquatch severely overrated. There is really nothing that I can see smell or taste to distinguish this for many other middling stouts on the market. Maybe it's a crowdpleaser because it's not too dark, not too bitter, not too strong, but unfortunately it's also not too memorable.

Black body with a light brown foamy head. Aroma is slightly bitter hops and coffee. Taste is bitter chocolate and espresso with a bit of a wooden bark taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
