3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Long overdue rating. The short - not my definition of an impy stout, more of a hearty stout. Aroma obvious of chocolate, slight caramel, and a bit of coffee. Flavor matches well, but just doesn’t have the depth I would hope for. Maybe this used to be a different beer, because I can’t see what people see in it.

This rich black beer has a creamy oatmeal colored head. Good balanced boldness and nice clean not overpowering finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Magnum Wines, Swindon, a pint bottle, pours with a diminishing tan head, faint aroma of milk chocolate. Taste is sweetish with little roasted caramel with a slight hop bitterness on the finish. Good but not complex enough for a beer of this strength.

Muito arrumada essa Stout. Álcool não pega, seca e refrescante. Ainda rolou aproveitar uma 50ml para fazer um brownie.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Day after Halloween and its a cold day for Florida, and a nice stout is finally a decent seasonal choice. Dark brown, near black. Small head. Aroma is dense with caramel and chocolate, flavor is similar leading to bitter coffee undertones at the finish. Herbal or grassy hop at the finish. Rich and smooth palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice black with a thin tan head. Small bubbles lacing the glass. The aroma is thin but I pick up some smoke and a hint of fruitiness. The taste is good with a berry like flavor up front followed by bitter chocolate. Not much depth and a bit thin but good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"this can be a great beer...as high as 4.5 or better, and as low as a 3 due to inconsistencies with BR. Don’t know if they’re not capped tight enough or not refridgerated properly at the stores, but I’ve had too many spoiled Red Rockets and Big Bears, which is too bad, because this one is BIG indeed! 6/10-on tap. still very good, but still slipping just a bit from it’s early high perch. downgrade 0.1 to a 4.2."

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. Pitch black with a frothy tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted malts, the typical flavors you’d expect but also some nutmeg and spice character. Flavor is lots of chocolate and cinnamon. Shocking amount of cinnamon character. Roasted coffee bitterness in the finish. Seriously good this.
