Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Dark brown, not a ton of aroma. Body is a bit thin and yeasty. Light chocolate. Finishes still a bit too yeasty for my tastes.

Pours black, tan head. Nitrogen added so good lasting head. Smell is typical stout, dark malts, bread. Taste is malt forward, little dry. But the finish is a little sweeter and medium dry. A more refreshing stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

culchiem (2429) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2014
Draught at St Augustine’s. Clean black with a solid head. Aroma is milk chocolate. Flavor is sweet milk, a little syrup and a sugary finish. Lacks a bit of bite

MrFecesious (928) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
N2 on tap at Darby's. Nice lookin beer with dense cascade and creamy, tan cap. Quite dark brown base. No lacing, but cap retention is good. Gets caught in a moustache quite well. Aroma of milk chocolate, nuts, hint of coffee, lactose. Taste is gently sweet. Good body. Creamy.

CapFlu (4483) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Cool idea and cool poor technique. I loves texture of a nitro stout so this is going well so far. Pours a huge off-white creamy head atop an opaque body.Nose of chocolate granules and cold coffee in a filter. Flavour is slightly thin and overly sweet but the smoothness is wonderful. They should aim for more of an ashy and coffee front and the texture will take this into the 4* realm. Nice.

(355ml bottle) Purchased at Liquor Plus Douglas - part of the Parallel mixed box. Pours a large brown head and a black body. Nose has hints of ash. Very smooth, some roastiness and filtered cold coffee. Good. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

Gerbeer (1691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
On tap. Pours black with super thick tan N2 head. Very light milk chocolate and roasted malt aromas. Flavors of sweet milk chocolate and light vanilla. Somewhat watery, but highly quaffable.

pictoman (456) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Poured from 341mL bottle. Dark brown with tan head. Roast malt and light chocolate aroma. Flavour is the same and has a sweet milky lactic feel and finish. Light body.

TimE (3110) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2013
Dark brown color. Sweet chocolatey nose with some lactos, toffee and hazelnut. Sweet lacto mouth with milk chocolate and nuts, but lack the complexity of the nose. A touch sour. Lingering chocolate finish. Starts great, but is nothing more than a fading star.

Dark brown, almost black pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and lactose. Taste of coffee, chocolate, sweetened cocoa and lactose. Medium carbonation and full bodied, nice balance. Good beer.
