Beers of Vancouver, vol. 31

Today’s pleasant surprise at the local liquor store is Howe Sound’s Megadestroyer Imperial Licorice Stout, a limited-run beer normally only brewed for the downtown beer-nerd spot the Alibi Room.  It’s pretty fucking good.

Megadestroyer tastes very much like Pothole Filler, Howe Sound’s seasonal stupid-thick Imperial Stout, only with a rich but subdued anise taste.  The licorice flavour is clearly present but not overbearing, making for a beer that’s slow-drinking but not hard to drink.  In fact, the stuff’s rather dangerously tasty.

It’s an interesting beer, possibly an incremental improvement over Pothole Filler, possibly just something different and no worse.  If it commanded much of a premium over the other Howe Sound beers I’d be hesitant to spend the extra money, but as it stands it’s definitely worth your money.
