MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Roasted biscuits, raisins and resinous hops merge for a smooth Imperial Stout experience which ends with the combined bitterness of grassy hops and roasted malts.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thick layer of foam tops the darkest brown.
-This pint is easy to down for an 8% brew.
-The biscuity cereal character is redolent of oatmeal.
-Coffee flavours emerge, as well as those of mild chocolate.
-The palate is that of a hefty pillow. Very comfy.

On tap at the brewpub.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Draft PP Solana Beach: Dark pour, dense thick coating of tan...subtle sweet nose of caramel. Flavors are remarkably balanced, dark malts, a little licorice, strong yet balanced piney or maybe even minty hop bitterness...glad the roastiness and most of the other attributes of a mid level abv. stout were absent...leaving just a very drinkable imperial stout experience.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 2, 2010
On tap at PP Solana Beach. Dark stout looking beer. Nose is dark fruit. Taste has lots of things going on. Dark roasted malt and fruit. Feels like effing velvet in the mouth. Little bitterness. Long afters. Chocolate and coffee hiding. Molasses? Hops? Good brew.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pours black with a big offwhite head that leaves sheet lace. Smells of sweet roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Tastes mostly of roasted malts with a hint of chocolate ad coffee. Slightly sour malts as well. Pretty ok. Medium/full body, good carbonation.

On tap at O’Briens in San Diego. Dark brown color with a black center and barely any head. Robust, spicy aroma with notes of smoke, earth and peat. Flavor follows suit with similar character, with a dry, hoppy finish. Good carbonation and a medium mouthfeel.

Growler sent by snojerk, thanks man! Pours a thin bodied black that let’s light through and a good looking loose 2 finger head that is a dirty grayish khaki. Nice amount of coffee malt up front with hints of light smoke and cocoa but a very assertive hop pressence that are slightly dank but mostly piney. Mouth feel is quite thin for a stout. The aromas on the nose are all there in the flavor...good amount of bitter coffee malt abundant hops. If I drank this without seeing it listed as a stout, I would say it is more of a black ipa or an American strong. At any rate it was very drinkable and the 8.5% wasn’t detectable.
