COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beneath the tides off Mission Beach rests Wreck Alley a dark and mysterious seascape of forgotten ships. Amidst the rusted wreckage is a marine ecosystem, an artificial reef teeming with life. Our Wreck Alley is as dark as the depths of its namesake, an Imperial Stout of uncharted complexity. Brewed with darkly kilned malts, cocoa nibs, and Ethiopian coffee beans, Wreck Alley boasts rich layers of dark chocolate, toffee, and espresso-like roast. Save a bottle. This one has a stout shelf-life.

chimayx (50) - FRANCE - FEB 3, 2017
Imperial stout trs sympa, accessible mme ceux qui ne seraient pas familiers du style, elle est trs aromatique mais douce et buvable. Trs noire comme il se doit, le corps est relativement pais sans tre compltement huileux. Odeurs assez douces de caf et de chocolat, pointes de malt grills. Armes assez importants, bien quilibrs: larrire plan est doux, comme du chocolat au lait renforc par du chocolat noir, avec un peu de gras. Sur le devant cest le caf qui lemporte, notes importantes de caf froid. Armes nets, bien distincts. Ces armes samenuisent au bout de quelques secondes pour laisser la place au houblon, avec une belle amertume finale. Trs bel quilibre entre les armes et lamertume.

Palme (4396) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2017
Sampled from a 0.65l bottle @ RBNG 2014. This is a deep dark brown looking one with a small sidesticking dark beige top. Soft roasted nose, a fair amount of hops is detected, as is chocolate, cold coffee and malt drops - all located here in a pretty well smelling blend of aromas. Lots of flavor. Its a tad chocolate sweet, I get some strong roasted flavors here but its also somewhat dark caramel sweet. Vanilla, coffee and lingering chocolate in the finish and aftertaste. Lots of flavor and quite a good tasting one. 15.02.2014

chadski (108) - California, USA - JAN 21, 2017
This is better than I was expecting. Typical coffee aromas yield a very nice balance of bitterness and chocolaty sweetness with a very creamy palate.

kramer (6476) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Clear dark brown body, small wispy brown head. Nose is big chocolate and coffee with some roast, minimal alcohol. The flavor is pretty solid, nice aggressive coffee without being astringent, lots of roast, some cocoa nibs, light bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lingering roast and coffee finish. Rather good stuff.

pivnizub (10357) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle: Very deep amber coloured with a shy ruby sheen, small persistent tanned head; moderate to solid sweet-bitter nose of roasted malt, dark chocolate and fresly ground coffee, faint leathery flavours presumably in the background; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, full bodied with a silky MF; dark chocolate, coffee and toasted malt , accompanied by a certain fruitiness , in the lingering bitter-sweet finish. A very pleasant winter-warmer...
