fiulijn (18446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver; 9.3% ABV, 414ml
Black color with medium sized tan head. Roasted malt is the dominant note, but it’s not ashy; notes of dark salty chocolate, roasted nuts and very light liquorice; good body strength, with limited residual sweetness. Pleasant alcohol warmth in the final.
Straight forward Imperial Stout, no gimmicks, just simple pleasure; excellent.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Strong Ale 2012. Black in color with a khaki head. Nose starts off with some nice roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. However, it’s rather acidic and a hint ashy. The flavor is just okay. Nice roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. But, the same acidity and ash flavors detract from the beer and there’s a little bit of metal, too.

Oakes (14974) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2008
Dark brown. Roasty nose, lots of coffee and a bit of nuts. Very rich, but not quite impy rich, just dark chocolate, coffee and nuts.

bhensonb (13737) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Note: The spelling is Stupid on a bomber. Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred’s got the good stuff! Pours very dark brown/black with a slight, transient, tan head. The aroma is coffee and chocolate, but it’s a deeper, more intense, sort of aroma than is common. Full bodied. Very slick. Flavor is coffee, chocolate and treacle. Plus the usual burnt to crap malt which is very smooth. Comes to the finish with the foregoing and a lot of bitter. Amazing ale.
