Pours a dark brown with no head to speak of and a faint, earthy chocolaty aroma with slight roasted notes. Watery, earthy brown malt taste, hint of roastiness, thin body, somewhat disappointing. Odd bit of trivia: Lush uses this beer in a shampoo. Go figgur! Sampled at the GCBF. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2007
@GCBF-on tap-pours a thin tan head and black color.
Aroma is dark malt-dark coffee. Taste is dark malt-dark coffee, some chocolate, bitter. 2.5

strong coffee, roasty aroma. Pours dark black (gasp!). Lightly malted stout. Dry coffee/chocolate finish. frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
Dark brown with a white head. Mocha and chocolate aromas caramel as well. Roasted malt taste with a long bitter finish, lightly sweet. The palate is a bit thin. A so so stout. GCBF. donpasquale (5) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2007 does not count
Crannog’s innocent looking stout has something which isn’t innocent at all: drinkability.
Heavy, silky Italian coffee flavour, with a fine almost...chocolate-like nose. 5.2% placket, relaxed drink...innocence and mayhem at once.

Dark body with minimal head. Lots of coffee on the nose. Dry and slightly bitter with a dark choclate taste. Decent flavouring but a touch thin. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 Strong espresso flavors and a similar nose. Smokey. Tasty, inviting and more- it is one of the best BC stouts. So creamy. The body is quaffable and thus it makes a good session stout. The deep roast never becomes overwhelming. Long lingering aftertaste. A very good beer and one of Crannog’s best.

Certified organic Stout, mild finish, chocolate and coffee flavours tend to vary with batches but always drinkable. One of the few session stouts out there. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2007
Tap at Barley Station in Salmon Arm. Very dark brown with red highlights when held to the light. Rich malty nose more coffee than chocolate. Delicious malty chocolate coffee balanced light stout. Very tasty like a light chocolate pudding. A sessional as Oakes pointed out. Chris411 (18) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2006
[2006 GCBF] Looks good when poured, and has a cool name. Unfortunately tastes much much too sour and not like a stout at all. Very tangy mouthfeel and unjoyable.
