Very dark brown color. Really nice smooth nose with tons of fudge, dark chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon with a nice pepper bite. Moderately sweet mouth with mole, vanilla, cinnamon and anejo pepper. Very smooth, full body, rich with lots going on, but really well put together. Lovely stuff with tons of dark fudge in the finish. Excellent.

Light body, a bit of chocolate, not a lot, orange, raisins, a nice tanginess and mild hops bitterness. Extremely good. Among the best stouts I’ve tried.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from the Bar (cade). Appearance: dark brown to black color, slight dark film of head. Aroma: big chocolate, bourbon, light prune, light chili aroma, and slightest vanilla, cannot really pick up the cinnamon over the bourbon. Palate: full body, oily texture, soft to flat carbonation, smooth, warming. Taste: heavy malty sweet with good bourbon tastes and light chili sweetness. Overall, very impressed with this beer, super complex, but nothing was overwhelming or over-represented in my opinion. Perfect amount of bourbon for me.

Bottle. Black. Aroma is milk chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Taste follows suit and adds sweet vanilla with a faint green vegetable note on the finish from the chiles. Semi-rich palate. Very good, complex layers of flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Brewdog Shepherd’s Bush. Black with a big tan head that dies over a few minutes. Aroma - chocolate syrup and roasted malts. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is mostly yeasty, artificial chocolate flavour, a little berry, some alcohol coming through but quite light for a 9% beer. Not really joined up - feels like a mixture.

Tap at Brewdog Shepherds Bush, near black with a fine crema, spicy cocoa and roast malt on the nose, body is rich, winey and chocolatey, with a subtle peppery burn and an umami, faintly tart edge. Wonderful stuff.

Pours deep brown with a small, lacing, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with bitter notes. Full to medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. An excellent Impy..

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice, smooth dark chocolate up front. Sweet cream and vanilla, dark fruit, molasses and a hint of spicy pepper at the end. A little too sweet, and not as much heat as expected. Alcohol blends well.
