3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine, Vancouver; listed at 8% ABV
Black color, with a nitro-like creamy head. It has a mild aroma of roasted malt. Nice roasted malt and black chocolate flavor, with some residual sweetness (that is a nice complement); smooth mouthfeel; good bitterness level.
Not complex, but pleasant.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Cask-conditioned
Dark brown colour. The aroma is somewhat light. The flavour is lightly earthy, with only a hint of roast. There is a slight chocolate note, still a hint of diacetyl despite the yeast change. It’s not my favourite, and next to the Yaletown Velvet it was not even in the same sport.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 On tap many times, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, chocolate and oatmeal - some sweetness. Flavour of light licorice, roasted malt, chocolate, and a perfect touch of sweetness. Full-bodied and well-rounded. This is one of best local beers for sure.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark mahogany coloured beer with a creamy light brown head and sticky lace. Low aroma, but what is there is light chocolate and a bit of roastiness. Flavour is quite sweet, with licorice, dark fruit, soy, and molasses notes. The mouthfeel is decently malty. It’s a good enough beer, but it has a tendency to become cloying. Could use a bit more hopping to balance that off. The brewery calls this an Irish stout... I don’t think so.

Personally I don’t see what people see in Storm beer except for its quirkiness. I find that all the beers have the same baseline flavors. The stout is interesting for sure, with odd astringency. It’s thin and strange and I don’t appreciate its body or flavor composition. Like other Storm beers it has no head. It is a change of pace, with novel character, though. This is worth trying if you are in Vancouver. In fact, the beer really does reflect the quirkiness of the city.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on tap at The Main on Main Street in Vancouver, BC pours jet black in color with a small beige head and some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts. Taste is quite malty sweet with some roasty bitterness and mild hops thrown in as well. Decently balanced flavours, but a little thin in the body and very light on carbonation. Overall, this is quite a decent tasting stout.
