fiulijn (21274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Black color with generous brown compact head. The aroma is very interesting, tobacco, cigar, some ashes, bread. Good body strength, yet with a lean mouthfeel; the flavor is a bit chocolatey, but unfortunately is too much roasty and ashy, burnt coffee too; the bitterness level is high, and the final slightly salty.
A robust, roasty Imperial Stout.

mcberko (18979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2010
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of oats, molasses, vanilla and light espresso. Flavour is a bit fruity, but it could be the combo of vanilla and molasses; there is a noticeable hop profile on the finish. Excellent.

Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2005
Very dark brown colour. Big aroma - chewy, rich, thick maltiness like a side of roast beef and a burnt fruitcake. A little raw, uncouth, with mass toffee and bludgeoning chewy maltiness. Same big, straightforward brute I remember from ten years ago.

3.7
Ferris (16521) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle - Dark fruit, smoke and light cocoa. Jet black with a creamy brown head. Big start, liquorice, booze and roast malts. Really big beer, worthy of the Imperial.
