From Dead Frog Brewery in Aldergrove comes their 2017 vintage of the “Commander Imperial Stout”. The beer pours a deep opaque black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, chocolate, toffee, caramel, earth and a sweet finish. The flavour is of roasted malts, milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, mild coffee, ash, earth, very mild oak, alcohol and bitterness in the finish. The alcohol content comes in at 10.5% with an IBU of 60. I wish the beer had been aged in a barrel and not just on oak for 60 days as that would have taken this really tasty Imperial Stout to the next level. But there is no doubt this is a great vintage of this beer.
