fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
Draught at St. Augustines, Vancouver; 9.3% ABV, 414ml
Black color with medium sized tan head. Roasted malt is the dominant note, but its 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 (16328) - 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, its 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 theres a little bit of metal, too.

mcberko (16053) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
On tap at St. Augustines, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a good mix of roasted malts, oats and a little cocoa. Flavour is rich and robust, with tons of roasted malt, oats and chocolate in decent harmony. This is anything but tame and one-dimensional, but it is also lacking a bit in drinkability with some abrasiveness. All in all, a fairly enjoyable slow sipper of an impie.
