KansaiBeerLvrs (1856) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. It is pitch black with  a thick tan head. It is made with vanilla beans soaked in bourbon which gives it a soft vanilla + cocoa nose. The taste is roasty oak, vanilla, toasty, chocolate, smooth bodied & exceptionally balanced. A stand out of my second day at the Ottawa beerfest.

bunget (536) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at the National Capital Craft Beer Festival in Ottawa. Dark brown body, small chocolate nitro head with good retention. Aroma of coffee, condensed milk, dark vanilla chocolate and coffee. Tasty of burned rubber, well done toast, condensed milk. Smooth, silky and flavourful.

Was really impressed with this one. It could have been that it was the first decent beer after a night of mediocre ones, but definitely more than I expected. Black with a 1/4 inch of tight mocha head. Roast and vanilla aromas. Silky mouth feel. Very creamy. Very well balanced between bitter and sweetness in the taste and the vanilla shines through well. Not much of an after taste. A pleasant surprise.

BreWedge (309) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
On tap @ Murray Street Ottawa. Pours an opaque dark brown with a thick, creamy, mocha head. Aromas are roasted coffee, dark chocolate, subtle vanilla. Taste is dominated by bitter coffee, a touch of molasses. Full bodied, heavy carbonation, and a long bitter finish. Overall, taste was disappointing relative to the promise from the smell. Smell was reminiscent of the coffee flavoured Starbucks bottle drinks without the heavy sweetness but the coffee ground flavour was overpowering. Admittedly, I'm not a coffee drinker so my palette maybe a little different than most. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

tap at beer brothers, ottawa. very dark brown pour with a nice creamy nitro beige head, good retention and lacing. dark roastiness, chocolate, darkly roasted coffee beans, burnt notes - adds a quasi scotch-like smokiness and saltiness, almost over torrefied, chalky vanilla - gladly never overwhelming, moderate sweetness - maple syrup, heavy on minerals. low carbonation, medium body - oily and silky, mineral, bittersweet coffee finish. nice stuff.

solidfunk (3870) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Very nice beer. Pours pitch black with carpet mocha lacing and a pillow of head. Aroma of vanilla, some nut but vanilla overtakes most roast malt, etc. Very soft carbonation here. Stout in the Irish sense. Finishes with light bitterness. Nice. Tap at Black Tomato.

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
Draught at Paddy’s, Ottawa. Pours a very dark brown with an average size long-lasting frothy/creamy light-brown head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, lactic notes, vanilla, chocolate and light leafy hops. Chocolatey flavour with lactic notes, vanilla, leafy hops and a moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I enjoyed it.

Metalchopz (2261) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
Formally known as Miss Marble, but might of changed a bit the recipe. Pours a very dark brown colour with very little red highlights. Creamy head (looks like nitro), staying a very long, long time. Mocha coloured with thick creamy lacing. Typical Ashton cereal grain malts for aroma with burnt malt notes and some dark fruits. Creamy, but refreshing mouthfeel. Nice rich roasted malt taste with decent hop bitterness that adds a little dryness. Vanilla is little to none, but as a stout, this one is pretty good. A great alternative to Guinness.

pushkinwow (1996) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Tap at 2013 winterbrewed beer festival. No opportunity for this one to fully warm up with outside temperatures of -19C with windchill however did my best to enjoy this beer. Sweet with vanilla, some roasted malts and bittersweet chocolate although not quite as dry. Still mild bodied with decent carbonation and a pleasant finish.
