On tap at Hops in New West. Served in a snifter. Pitch black in color, with a very creamy tan head. Worth it for the head alone! Flavor-wise weíre in deep roasted malt territory here. Malt suggests coffee more than chocolate by far. Just noticed the lacing on the glass. A perfect brew for the first day of fall. Yes! presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2011
Black. Cream head. Light sourness. Very creamy. Light flavor. Better than Guinness better not big though. reebtogi (6235) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
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. fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
Draught at St. Augustine, Vancouver; listed at 8% ABVVertBaconStrips (2387) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JAN 14, 2011
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.
On tap at OíDoulís. Deep brown with red hues and a very nice thick velvety light brown cap and lots of spotty lacing. Sweet and fruity...very fruit and sweet. Chocolate candy, not real chocolate, toffee, light herb, powdery something, plumish. Fairly tasty and at this point Iím down with this. Light bitterness and sugar, light choc, herb and unsweetened grapefruit. Smooth and highly drinkable. Cool.

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. turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2009
On Tap. Looks like a stout or porter for sure. Almost black, nearly opaque, with nice brown, foamy head that lasts. Awfully sweet. Everything else is fine but the sweetness was overpowering for me. Another beer from Storm that is a little outside the box but I just didnít dig it. elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Poured on tap at the Main, Vancouver, BC. Not really a stout- Drinks more like a nice Schwartzbier. Apparently an ale...but I have my doubts. Very smooth mouthfeel, with low carbonation. Scent and flavor strong on yeasts and peaches. Some light, roasted barley bitterness. A wonderful addition to my short BC trip. mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2008
Served draught at The Foundation, in VancouverBeershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
Pours a pitch black with a loose black head with some foam and lacing. Interesting spicy aroma, molasses too. Tastes very, very unusual! Very sweet, with a strong flavour of over-ripe banana and cloves. If tastes like the folks at Storm decided to play a prank on us and ferment it with hefeweizen yeast. Very odd, but still very drinkable! Thick body low in carbonation but typical for a tapped stout. I must have this one again - so very odd!
Personally I donít 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. Itís thin and strange and I donít 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.
