harrisoni (12675) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle at ChrisO "I’m Trying to see the Stool" pre GBBF2010 tasting. Black thin beige head. Decent impy stout. OK tar. Good drinkability. At least it tastes of an impy stout instead of all those rubbish Cigar City things.....

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
Cloudy chestnut with a little bit of head. Both molasses and vague spice (cinnamon?) are present in the aroma. Rich, full-bodied and with lots of spice, but also yeasty. The malts are muddled and while the rich fruitiness is appreciated the roast is harsh like burnt espresso and the alcohol not strong enough to take the edge off the sweetness.
