3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Negra,opaca,,espuma marrom com baixa formação,deixando uma pequena coroa duradoura;aroma é o seu ponto mais forte,complexo,aparecendo malte tostado e torrado,chocolate,café e frutas escuras;sabor inicial com predomínio da torrefação,seguido do gostoso amargor dos lúpulos,me lembrando um encorpado café expresso com chocolate,álcool muito bem inserido não revela seu alto grau(10%). Encorpada sem ser agressiva,sem dúvida uma das melhores Stout que já degustei,faz jus á fama,imperdível.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From Mexican restaurant of all things in NYC. Aroma of chocolate, sweetness, smokiness, very nice. Black beer with a pretty brown head but it disappears faster than expected for an Impy. Flavor is solid with chocolate, smoke, wood, a bit of bitterness from the chocolate. It’s weaker than some other Impy stouts but that isn’t a bad thing here.
It’s almost a bit too drinkable for the APV. Nice, very nice.

Chocolate and vanilla aroma with hints of cognac. Taste of chocolates and toast. Really nice roast notes in the aftertaste, which BTW is loooong. Semi-dry, but still some well balanced vanilla sweetness added. Hints of liqourice.

Bottle, thanks Ben for grabbing. Aroma: chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, smokey. App: pitch black head, minimal beige head, small. Some shy lacing. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, soft carbonation, smooth, sticky, medium sweetness, warm alcohol and abrupt bitter finish. Overall: wow! Perfectly balanced between the sweetness and the bitterness. This is a masterpiece.
