3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel aroma; inky black with tan frothy head; strong smoky flavor with alcohol tang; fizzy carbonation with astringent finish; overall, a great example of a smoked stout, but with the high price and disappointing aroma falls short of a regular purchase

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Poured a dark brown liquid that was completely opaque and had a thin yet firm layer of film head. Aroma is big and bold with robust scents of smoked wood and smells better than imported rauchbiers from Europe. Also has a nose of roasted black malts that reminds me of a creamy coffee additive. The beer drinks rich and smooth with a roasted malt profile that has been perfectly smoked and remind me again how good Beachwood beers are. Really could have fooled me for an Imperial rauch and not an impy stout.

Nice stout. Very subtle smokiness which I liked. Good flavor without all the overbearing chocolate or coffee flavors some stouts have.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. A more or less black one, topped by a dense tan head leaving curtains. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, molasses and a faint bonfire touch in the aroma. Sweetness and some alcohol warmth in the mouth. Full body, very soft on there palate. A nice bitterness lasts for a good while, both of the roasted and hoppy kind. A really pleasant one, probably better on a colder day, but I canít say I suffered drinking it in the heat. 130813
