3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (thanks to Kevin for sharing) poured a translucent black with red highlights and a small diminishing amber head. Aromas of coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and cinnamon. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of coffee, bitter chocolate and dark fruit with a smooth lingering bittersweet finish.
Kinda dissappointing for an Impy Stout!

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Taste a lot like chocolate (I don’t like chocolate, which isn’t a good start). The beer is much more like a porter than a stout or a black beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, closing in on two years old, whoops. Pours a dark black with a huge cocoa hued tan head. Such a large head that my initial thoughts are that there’s probably something wrong here. Chocolate, paper, roast and hints of old fruit, and even something chemical smelling in the background, sweet like mothballs.. Starts off with some chocolate, but there’s certainly some papery flavors going on here. Cocoa, toast, and some old plum flavors. Tons of carbonation, bitter old cocoa, big weird booze notes that rise up, and a very chemically old flavor. Dumped.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2012 Filalement je n’aime pas ce goût super fumé. J’ai pas l’impression de boire une bière mais un poter. Goûte trop la melasse.
