Our Stir Stick Stout is robust with ruby highlights and a generous addition of fresh ground, locally roasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee. The beans lend a distinct chocolate aroma that blends well with the roasted barley and malty sweetness. A woody bitterness from the Fuggles hop variety rounds out this ale and makes it the perfect match for barbequed buffalo burgers or sweet desserts like chocolate lava cake. Serve in a glass at 8 degrees celcius. Unpasturised.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - APR 14, 2008
Darker brown with a thinner texture. Nice foamy tan head. Nice strong coffee and roasted malt aroma. Starts off with a bitter coffee flavour that is quite nice. Quickly thins out and leaves you wanting more maltiness. Good simple version of a stout.

Maltser85 (144) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Beer pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is bitter coffee and some borderline bitter chocolate/sweet chocolate. There is also a roasted barley note. The taste is nice. Bitter coffee, bittersweet chocolate, roast and a bitter finish. Leaves a nice sticky residue on the lips. Nice body for being a 5.6% ABV. A nice sessionable coffee stout that is slightly reminiscent of The Poet by New Holland. Thanks again to Cards04 for this one!

GothGargoyle (934) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Light brown with minimal head. Aroma is musk, dirt, wood, grain. Thin on the palate, short finish. Taste is watery soy sauce, grains, cheap chocolate. What the hell were they stirring with this stick?

Lagerboy (1068) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2013
341 ml bottle. Darkest brown with a slight cola hue and a fading mocha head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Light roast chocolate malt taste, somewhat thin and watery. Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Goes down easy but still: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

houblonchien (78) - CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 hints of chocolate and coffee, OK head, quite crisp on the tongue, layers of flavour including a hint of burnt carmel, don’t drink cold (just slightly cool), a touch hot for stout, tough to beat if you like a good stout

RumRunner101 (675) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Aromas of molasses, candi sugar, dates. Flavour is roasted with coffee and dark chocolate. Flavour doesn’t come across as sweet as the nose would suggest. Somewhat thin, with a bitter, roasted finish. Good stout.

Reimer96 (1062) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2013
On tap at revolution with lactose and chocolate. Aroma of choose, roasted malts and sweet creamy coffee. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, sweet chocolate, creamy hot chocolate and slightly bitter cocoa on the finish. Excellent coffee stout and a joke twist with the addition of lactose leaves a ton of flavor all over but perfect for this time of year and the next 8 months.
