From Quesnel BC’s Barkerville Brewing Company comes their second bomber release named “52 Foot Stout”. The beer pours an opaque brown colour with a brownish head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, sweet chocolate and coffee. The flavour is of roasted malts, burnt coffee, chocolate and an overall sweet finish. The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 52. This is a very well made stout and I am glad that they have at least very minimal distribution to Vancouver.
Commercial Description: They said he was crazy, but Billy Barker could feel gold in his gut. Down river, close to Stout’s Gulch, he would stake his claim. Soon Barker and his crew pulled up 60oz of gold from 52ft below the ground, making his the richest claim in an area henceforth known as Barkerville. Made with boreal amber birch syrup and roasted malt, 52ft Stout boasts a deep flavour that always strikes gold.
