fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Black color with generous brown compact head. The aroma is very interesting, tobacco, cigar, some ashes, bread. Good body strength, yet with a lean mouthfeel; the flavor is a bit chocolatey, but unfortunately is too much roasty and ashy, burnt coffee too; the bitterness level is high, and the final slightly salty.
A robust, roasty Imperial Stout.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2005
Very dark brown colour. Big aroma - chewy, rich, thick maltiness like a side of roast beef and a burnt fruitcake. A little raw, uncouth, with mass toffee and bludgeoning chewy maltiness. Same big, straightforward brute I remember from ten years ago.
