From Coal Harbour Brewing in Vancouver comes their “7th Year Anniversary Imperial Stout” a beer that looks to emulate french toast. The beer pours an opaque black colour with a light brown head. The aroma consists of oak, bourbon, vanilla, maple, roasted malts and brown sugar. The flavour is of bourbon, oak, vanilla, maple, brown sugar, anise, roasted malts, ash, treacle, mild bitterness and only a hint of alcohol. The alcohol content comes in at 9.2%and the beer has a thickness to it. This may be the beer from Coal harbour that I enjoy the most. I hope they continue to make beer in this vein!
