Pothole Filler

<p>This Imperial Stout is part of the John Mitchell signature series of beers coming from the Squamish BC based brewery. Pouring from the large, resealable 1L bottle the Pothole Filler is a deep and very dark colour close to being black. The tar coloured stout is topped with two dense fingers of light brown head. This head settles slowly leaving a thick coat of lacing on the sides of the glass. Through this thick head comes an aroma of toasted malts, molasses and a touch of chocolate. The taste is thick, dark and heavy. While it may not be quite thick enough to fill an actual pothole it is quite close. The roasted malts have a slight burnt flavour to them and the molasses gives a deep and complex sweetness to the stout. Close to the finish of the beer a hop bitterness comes into play along side a cocoa flavour. These two bitter notes don&rsquo;t go over the top but leave a strong and layered finish masking the big alcohol strength that may have otherwise taken over from the large 9% ABV.&nbsp; The Howe Sound Pothole Filler is a well known BC beer with a reputation to match. This is a big and bold imperial stout that ranks in the top of its style. It may be a bit much to drink on your own but it is easy to make friends with this delicious winter warmer.</p>
