2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very dark brown, moderate beige head with slight retention and watery lacing. Aroma is biscuity, musty, and yeasty, with some toasted malt and an indistinct hint of raisins or figs and brown sugar, could almost pass for a Barleywine. Flavour begins with a hint of lactic acid then briefly presents raisins and alcohol before a somewhat dry, yeasty and slightly toasty finish. Somewhat thin mouthfeel, low carbo. Not sure if this is supposed to be an Impy Stout or a Barleywine, and I don’t know that they are either having had their Barleywine. An Imperial Brown Ale, I suppose? Certainly not a stout.
