4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 294 from thecheeseman!!! Thanks Dan!! Also shared courtesy of BrianK a few weeks back. Pours a very dark black oily viscous body with a nice long lasting glistening tan almost orange head. Aroma is intense with coffee, roasted barely, chcooalte malts, and evne some fresh hops, but they all work perfectly together- I also get hints of toasted almond and licorice int her eas well. Flavor has a nice cool clean smooth coffee with blends so well with the roast of themalts, lgiht smokiness, tar and leather, and a nice subdued yet noticed hop character in the end. This was so intense, yet so refined and balanced. Freakin awesome impy stout.

Bottle. Thanks to BrianK for sharing this roasty treat. Pours a black body with a mild tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate malt coffee and bozzy. Flavor is a dry roasty chocolate with a moderate etoh warming in the finish. Probably the best stout i’ve had to date from denmark and subsequentally im probably overrating this.
