COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shaner D and I doing the live circuit at Beer fest, alternating the spro and stout: Lets 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!

reebtogi (5940) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2016
650ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee and dark roasted grains with some chocolate notes. Taste is a coffee and roasted grain bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, the taste is fine, but this brew is a little thin in the body for this style.

pushkinwow (2716) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2016
Bottle from GRM. Dark mahogany pour with a beige head. Slightly stale espresso, nutty and toasted malts, dry, some milk, moderate carbonation and body, becomes dried and more grindy on the finish, also seems to thin out a bit.

Boutip (6087) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle: Poured a light black color stout with a brown foamy head with good carbonation and light lacing. Aroma of floral espresso notes with some light roasted malt. Taste is a nice mix between some espresso notes with some light roasted alt and some lactose-like sugar notes. Body is light but has a nice creamy texture with good carbonation. A bit thin but I enjoyed the espresso notes in this beer.

Lubiere (13183) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2016
A deep dark stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, woody chocolate malt, pea notes, OK. In mouth, a nice bitter chocolate with light coffee notes, light nutty notes, light mineral notes, nice and smooth. Bottle from GRM at his place.

Some light cream and a little coffee. Not a lot to this. Light roast. Black pour with great mocha head and lacing. Bottle my dad bought.

dresden (1517) - 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 (13537) - 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

Low character count alert! There is a minimum of 75 characters for your comments. A good rating says something about the appearance, aroma, flavors, body, and finish and your overall experience with the beer.

ljthiessen (1199) - 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.
