tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2007
Average score posted.
Original rating (8-4-8-2-16=3.8): Strong roast hickory and chocolate in the aroma. Opaque darkest brown body is topped by a decent, fine bubbled and lasting tan head that leaves some lacing. Roasted malts are strong in the flavour with some raisin and plum fruitiness and plenty of bittersweet dark chocolate through the middle. Dry medium body with decent if somewhat short-lived carbonation. Sampled on cask at The Whip.
Re-rate (7-2-6-2-13=3.0): Cocoa is strong and powdery in the nose with a light roasty undercurrent. Opaque black body is topped by a low, large bubbled, brown head that recedes rapidly to a partial cover. Roastiness is up front in the flavour. Raisins, plums and chocolate in the aftertaste. Very dry medium body with somewhat short-lived carbonation. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Brewery Creek, Oct-07).

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2007
Very dark with nice brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate and burnt toast. Flavour is quite bitter with a toasy malt note but not overly thick or dense for a stout. Thins as it finishes.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
Pours a pitch black with a brief but gorgeous thick brown head. Light buttery, slightly roasted aroma. Tastes like an oatmeal stout - I believe they used oats in the mash - with a black sesame seed roastiness. Very dry finish. Body is slightly watery and thin, low carbonation. I’m very glad that Vancouver has its own home-grown bottled stout. Keep it up, R&B - good stuff!

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Pours with large dark foamy head that doesn’t dissipate too fast and leaves some lacing on the glass. Opaque black. Not much of a nose--or maybe mine was off. A bit thin. Not as creamy as expected for an oatmeal stout. However, flavors are alright by me: roasty toasty malts accentuated by hop bitterness and leaving a fine aftertaste. I may re-rate soon.

Crit (3318) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2009 Black, small tan head.Salty, lightly roasted nose.Lightly roasted profile, mocha mid, medium bitterness in finish. Tinny overtones that amplify as it warms. Thin and underflavored. Not a good effort. Tap version slighlty better has no tinny overtones.6-3-5-2-12
