stantheman (816) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
Bomber from Legacy Liquor in Vancouver. A black beer with a moderate tan head. Now, you may want to take note here. This is listed as an imperial stout, all well and good. This not, however, a standard interpretation of the style. Lighter and fruitier than the traditional imperial stouts that are exemplified by Old Rasputin and a few others. Very pleasant. More later, perhaps.

Spab (2945) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
750 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a deep dark brown/black with average-sized tan head. Aroma is big roasty malt with anise, coffee, leather and dark fruit. Flavour is roasty verging on smoked with dark coffee, anise, leather, wood and a little raisin/plum. Big body. Really nice beer.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Black pour with a thin tan head. Roasty chocolate and vinous sweetness give way to smokey roast and hints of booze. Full body with a sticky sweet finish. I really liked this one.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Served in a mini snifter. Pours very dark with a mocha head. Thin collar. The nose carries some roast and chocolate plus a bit of darker fruits. Brown sugar as well. Flavor is moderately sweet without any booze. Mild roast and backing chocolate. Medium body and good carbonation. Pretty smooth. Good beer.

Gethinbeer (2400) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2012
Deep black appearance. Thin tan lace. Fruit tannin aroma. Oily, whisky texture. Bitter astringent finish. Harsh malt, silky chocolate, whisky falvour. Not great.

Skvader (125) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2012
The aroma has bourbon (no surprise), chocolate and roastedness. Texture is more than medium thick, high carb, creamy, acidulous flavour, with hints of hazelnut, bourbon, maple sirup. A delight to drink
