fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Draught at the brewery; 8.5% ABV
Roasty Imperial Stout, a bit dry compared to expectations, and with some alcohol feeling, some light sourness from the dark malts.
Nice beer, but not very cohesive.

Opaque black color, small beige-brown head. Lots of coffee, some dark candy in the aroma. Medium to full-bodied. Coffee, salt licorice, roasted maltyness. As always, oat makes stouts smooth. This is very pleasant oatmeal stout.

phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2017
12 oz. can from poisoneddwarf - thanks again! Pours an opaque, deep, dark, basically black color with a finger of tan head that settles into a film and ring, leaving trailing lace in the glass. Notes of roasted malts, baker’s chocolate, cocoa powder, burnt sugars, tobacco, earth, and a bit of ash. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a smooth, roasty, earthy, barely sweet mouthfeel. Nice sipping imperial stout.
