Cannery Brewing – Darkling Oatmeal Stout

IMG_1359

Penticton, BC’s Cannery Brewing has given us Darkling Stout.

The darkest brown a beer can be without being black, only direct light shows lighter brown highlights through it.  The head is coarse bubbles that dissipate quickly but show a cream colour while they are there.

The aromas are very wintery, I get a lot of prune, rum and fruitcake scents dominating.  A little bit of black cherry comes through as well and some bitter cocoa.

Prune and fruitcake are the lead flavours.  There are roasted malt and cocoa flavours underneath that balance the sweet tastes.
