A deep dark imperial stout with lacing mocha head. In aroma, nice chocolate malt with light bourbon barrel notes, woody notes, light acidity, light licorice, alcohol warmth, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet chocolate malt with licorice notes, molasses, bourbon barrel notes, woody notes, alcohol warmth, very nice and complex. On tap at Brother’s Beer Bistro. mcberko (18081) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2017
650mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a nice bourbon character, followed by cocoa, and a little vanilla. Flavour is heavy on the bourbon, with loads of vanilla, cocoa and alcohol. Boozy but in a good way, leaving a warming effect. Really good. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017

Overheard: "I was fine until I started sipping this." "Maybe you should hand it over then."
Deep black pour. The nose is a little bit boozy but with very pronounced bourbon notes. Chewy and chocolatey with a touch of pepper. Rich and cocoa laden. Solid malt profile. Lovely. blankboy (7714) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2017
[’Stout Night 2016’, Dec 16] Pours totally black with an average size semi-lasting frothy light-brown head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, some alcohol, some chocolate, light coffee and light leafy hops. (8+) Flavour of roasted malt, some alcohol, chocolate and a good amount of hops in the moderately roasty finish.
Medium bodied. There’s alcohol there but for almost 12% it’s fairly subdued. Really, really good stuff.

Inky black pour. Bitter coffee, whisky and a rich, malty sweetness on the nose. Strong bourbon notes on the tongue (Damn this is a big beer), as well as molasses, dark chocolate, some dark fruit and a bit of licorice. Powerful stuff. fiulijn (20806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2016

Black color. The strong alcohol cuts the sweetness of this beer, that is therefore medium; the flavor is mainly dark malts, some molasses, salty, and some bourbon barrel.
Good but too boozy.
650ml bottle @ Alex’s. Some up front Bourbon sweetness. still a touch hot, Lil astringent, otherwise I’m liking the rest. Ferris (15901) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2016
Bottle - Dark rich chocolate and some caraway notes. Jet brown with a rich nice light brown head. Rich and boozy with nice chocolate and warming heat. Very big and very nice. beerplace (1737) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2016
Tasting ar Alex’s. 650ml bottle from Toronto (thx, Peter!). Pours an almost black with a beige head. Aroma is sweet, bourbon barrel, leather, dark fruits. Taste is sweet, boozy, chocolate, bourbon. Roasted malt and hoppy bitterness aftertaste. Too much booziness for me, but it is still very good, though.
