fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
Draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, BC; 6.4% ABV
Expected black, instead its dark mahogany, clean, with beige nitro head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, lightly sweet, some roasted malt, some coffee, but also some taste of "bad" coffee. More roastiness in the final.
Quite nice.

Oakes (16469) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2015
Nitro, Pumphouse Pub. Medium brown. Thick nitro head. Has a vanilla, coffee character and so much nitro its practically ice cream. This ends up knocking bitterness out of it, to the detriment of balance.

mcberko (16012) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of espresso beans and roast. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of espresso beans upfront, with a little roast and a touch of cocoa. Medium bodied and pretty monolithic. Very nice.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Sample at the 3rd Annual Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 01/22/2011: Pours brownish-black with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing. Roasted coffee aroma with some burnt malt behind it. Medium body with flavors of black coffee, malt and a touch of hops. The finish is roasty coffee with a lasting bitterness. Good all around.

"Had this for breakfast. Pleasant fresh coffee aroma and flavor with just enough roasted malt, chocolate and hops to balance. A touch thin on the palate, but not watery. Good call for the a.m."

hopscotch (10901) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle... Pours dark brown with Longhorn-orange highlights and a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma features deep, rich, roasted barley and mocha. Medium-bodied with a moderate measure of airy carbonation. The flavor provides mocha espresso and dark chocolate - but is fairly thin. Watery, mildly burnt, black coffee finish. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!
