From a growlerPours a pitch black color with a thick tan head that leaves great lacing. Smells of chocolate, caramel, licorice and and roasted malt. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thick with medium carbonation. This is a really good stout, with most your normal imperial stout flavors but they really do a good job with balance. This is the first beer I?ve tried from Fort George and definitely looking forward to trying their other stuff.

Can from Total Wine, Lynnwoodjoeldavies (2) - USA - NOV 28, 2017 does not count
Black color, brown head. Mild roasted malt aroma, roasted nuts, touch of coffee. Smooth mouthfeel, lean, with light residual sweetness; good balance of roasted malts and chocolate, with a touch of liquorice and coffee.
Burnt coffee, melted dark chocolate sweetness, chewy date and licorice with a boozy, bitter finish. joet (2675) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2017
Black, creamy Brown foam. Cocoa and licorice, coconut and vanilla, toasty, molasses. Creamy feel. Lightly acidic finish , toasty, soft bitterness. This is wonderful. blackmetal (249) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 13, 2017
This is actually an amazing stout, don't be deceived by the can. Nice blend of cocoa and roasty flavouring, but yet there's sweet notes and mild hoppy undertone. Well done!

16 oz. can. No can dating. Aroma shows sweet roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, and barley. Taste is pretty nice. Has some bitter chocolate gives it some balance without any hop profile. Ash and some caramel notes. Nicely dry texture. The ABV is mostly hidden here. Body is not entirely as full as I expect but... The flavor is great and that is what counts most. Panzuriel (2429) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2017
Appearance: Dark Black brown. Opaque. Finger of tan foam.
Nose: Deeply roasted chocolate malts. Roasted cereal, coffee and a little bit of vanilla.
Taste: Dark roasted coffee bitters, with sweeter dark chocolate notes. hints of fruit, vanilla and caramel. Decent bitter finish
Body: medium to fuller and silky.
Parting thoughts: A very decent Imperial stout. Rich, dark and roasty.

Tap at a dive bar in the Oregon coast. Black, of coirse. Served too cold. Heacy roast, some coffee and chocolate. Alcohol is noticeable in the flavor and aroma. Medium oalate, a little cocoa powder grit. Solid beer. luttonm (6963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Can, shared with the team at Barbarian Brewery in Lima. Dissipating gray-tan head. Rather robust dark pour. Lots of bitter chocolate and some coffee bean on nose. Quite fresh tasting, nice bittering and carb brightness. Some alc at end. Lots of nice bitter chocolate. NachlamSie (3597) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2017
16 oz can received in a trade. Very dark body with a dark tan head. Plenty of roasted malt aroma reminiscent of espresso and mocha which is highlighted by hops notes of pine and citrus peeking out. Mouthfeel is pretty big. This struck me as a big American stout, not quite imperial stout territory, but it’s straddling that line so much so that’s it’s a tough call. Roasty notes of espresso are highlighted by bitter hops but this is balanced by well-rounded chocolate flavors. The finish is on the dry end of the style, but certainly has some welcome sugars to complete the profile. I’m really digging this one.
