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. mcberko (18600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2010
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. stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
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 we’re 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! Crit (4049) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003

Black body with a nice tan head with good lacing. Nose was slightly roasted malt but also caramel. Flavour was pretty sweet but still nicely balanced out the roasted malt. Finish was nice and chewy. One of the better stouts I've had from BC.

Served draught at The Foundation, in Vancouverreebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
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!
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. 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. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2006
Mild roast and licorice notes with some chocolate and berries in the nose. Opaque black body is topped by a generous off white head that recedes to a lasting cover and coats the sides of the glass. Hickory, biscuity malts and chocolate flavours blend well with subtle roastiness and berrylike fruity esters. Bitterness is moderate and offsets the sweet malts well. Medium body with decent and lasting carbonation. Sampled on tap at The Main. Resampled at The Whip with similar notes and score. VertBaconStrips (2397) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JAN 14, 2011
On tap at O’Doul’s. 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 I’m down with this. Light bitterness and sugar, light choc, herb and unsweetened grapefruit. Smooth and highly drinkable. Cool.
