Shaner D and I doing the live circuit at Beer fest, alternating the spro and stout: “Let’s make a beer with shocking polarity.” “Black on black” I agreed. Tommy D, always the conductor, kept us grounded with his three-pronged wisdom: “Like love, boys, it starts with a spark. When the field is fully charged, flip the switch: Voltage!”

dresden (1477) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Draft at cascade room. Black and thin. A nice coffee aroma, some roast as well. Flavour of the coffee is nice, but the beer itself is lacking, watery, some roasty malt but subdued. Could do worse but...

Ferris (12890) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Draft - Dark roast and light coffee bean. Deep brown black with a decent light brown head. Roasty and lots of coffee bean. A bit thin on the palate but flavours are nice.

One of my favourite stouts. Love the coffee flavour in this. Sells out fast in Victoria everywhere, get a few bottles quick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ljthiessen (1138) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown pour with a large tan head. Aromas of bitter espresso, dark malts, chocolate, maybe a little nutty. Flavour is espresso with a bit of a hoppy bite. Overall pretty nicely balanced with subdued espresso and the right amount of bitterness, but light bodied and a little watery.

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
A bit murky medium brown. Aroma is mellow and coffeeish. Taste is sweet up front, with a bit of coffee kicking in late. Finishes sweet. Ok coffee stout, balanced and mellow.

Lagerboy (1957) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
Bomber. Deep dark hueless brown, big tan foam settles quick and spots out. Aroma is mostly coffee, roasted malt and some chocolate. Darker roast, sweet milky chocolate, not too bitter bean taste. Higher carbonation, thin medium body, low hopped. Lighter and livelier, nice enough easy desert quaff. Finishes short and sweet. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

BooRadleyRed (10) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
A great coffee stout, higher amounts of carbonation and lighter drinking than it looks. A fun stout, not offensive in any way with a nice quick bitter espresso finish.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouver
Black color, with creamy, persistent, brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and cardboard; whiff of coffee. Dry and smooth mouthfeel; some roasted malt and coffee flavor, with light milk impression; correct bitterness.
Nice Stout.
