4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 9.3 oz. bottle into a 10 oz. nonic half pint glass.
Pours pitch black with a beige half finger head, considerable lacing present. Aromas of roasted malt with espresso undertones dominate accented with pleasant inviting booziness. Creamy, smooth, and full-bodied the flavors of roasted malt, espresso, dark fruit, all accented with notes of apricot, pear, and apple. Very complex and satisfying this brew justifies its historic status.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
275 ml. bottle, brewed on May 2011- Pours almost black with a creamy one finger tan head. Aroma is very English, it has that Sam Smiths smell to it, sweet and earthy. The taste is the same, very English, chocolatey, coffee, earthy, very drinkable for 10%. Body is full, but have had fuller Impy Stouts, carbonation is medium. Overall have had better, but I really liked this, I think the year of age has really helped this, but I haven’t had a fresh one, so I couldn’t say for sure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from a 9.3 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a very large creamy dark tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was chocolate, malted milk and vanilla. The flavor was very bitter roasty malts, cocoa, malted milk, vanilla and faint notes of licorice and wood. The finish was long and bitter with lingering cocoa, malted milk and roasty malts. Thick and creamy body. Initially I really liked it but my enjoyment diminished with the more that I had.
