Location: Bottle at Paul’s Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13

Aroma: The nose is a bit odd, the chocolate and roast are there too with the odd notes
Appearance: This one pours a dark brown-black color with a small head
Flavor: The flavor is malty, and a little sweet, but nice, with lots of chocolate and roast
Palate: The body was really nice, full, creamy, and smooth, highly drinkable, no alcohol burn
Overall Impression: I enjoyed this one. The nose was really odd, but the rest of the beer was quite enjoyable. The stand-out component was the feel, which was a borderline 4/5 for me.

Opaque black beer. Dark chocolate head, very short lived. Gorgeous nose of chocolate and Port Wine, one of the nicest smelling beers I’ve had in yonks. Palate is light and a little dry. Unsweet chocolate with a trace of coffee. Strongy tangy raspberry and cherry blend perfectly with the chocolate and coffee. Finishes light and soft. This is a very tasty Impy for it’s relatively modest abv. Excellent nose, good palate, great taste!

2007 vintage 7.9%. 12 ounce bottle thanks to Dany! Pours a pure black color with a small brown head. A sweet roast and lactose nose. The flavor is initially a rich smoky, salty brew, dark fruit, viscous body. brown sugar and roast. Initially, I thought this had been off and gone soy sauce, but really it needed to warm and I didn’t get the sour element to this. Some Imperial Stouts have significant lactose-like sourness (such as DR’s Baltic Porter) and this certainly has this. And for me, when it is done well this works like a champion. Very nice brew. A bit of oxidation around the edges and some caramel and cherries at the core. Interesting brew!

Found a bunch of these at a local store and bought them out. I’ve been trading them away and finally had one for myself. Now I want all my trades back! Pours a deep, thick black inky syrup with a big frothy dark brown head that just lingers. Aroma has lots of roasted malts and dark chocolates. A little bit of acidity moving in on the taste but it does not detract from the great roasted malt and lovely chocolate that just sits on your tongue. I have 2-3 more and I don’t know if I’ll be able to part with them.
