Brewery: Dead Frog Brewery, Aldergrove, BC
Style: Imperial Stout
Availability: Limited edition release
Deep ruby-black body with a thin and quickly disappearing khaki-tan head. Strong aroma of charred wood, molasses, licorice and dark chocolate. Flavour holds all of those notes as well, along with some bourbon vanilla in the middle, and a warmly boozy and astringently bitter finish. Body is a bit thinner than expected from the style, but still full enough to support the flavour. Good, but I think 6 months or so of aging will do a lot to mellow the rough edges and make it much better.
