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.

AAEA (266) - California, USA - JUL 20, 2014
22 FL OZ ($9.99) a good beer and is pretty complex. has a lot of flavors going on and is extremely drinkable at 9.5% ABV. Ive had better imperial stouts and $10 for a 22floz is pretty over priced.

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 (6313) - 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 (10312) - 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...

piwnepodroze (479) - POLAND - OCT 3, 2016
imperialny stout uwarzony został z dodatkiem ziaren kakao i etiopskiej kawy. Kakaowiec jest tu bardzo intensywny i pięknie wspłgra z nutami mocno palonej kawy. Towarzyszą im ciemne owoce i ciemne słody. Piwo jest mocno słodowe, choć na początku słodkawe, ma bardzo wytrawny i goryczkowy finisz. Polecam!

Tapped at Karl Strauss in San Diego. Almost pitch black color. Thick beige head. Fantastic aroma of mik chocolate. awesome nose piercing milk chocolate and good minor espresso. Taste is medium sweet milk chocolate, minor espresso. Bitter chocolate finish. Alcohol absolutely not present hence a very dangerous beer! Fantastic imperial stout!
