4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Boom boom; out go the lights! This is one serious beer. Poured at a good temperature with an medium size, tan, foamy, frothy, sudsy head with brown highlights and a little lace. Aroma is a little mild and has malt, coffee, cocoa, roasty, dark ripe fruit, molasses. Flavor’s like nose, Bitter, sweet, and mild tang are very well balaanced and marry in harmony with just the right body and carbonaton. Finish is like flavor, of average length, and has a little boozy warmth. Understated greatness.

330ml bottle pours pitch black in color with a solid 2 finger light brown head that settles slowly but leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is dark roasted malts and dark fruits with hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is chocolate and grain malt sweetness with some tartness from the dark fruits and some hints of liquorice and alcohol in the finish. Very slight hop presence. Heavily bodied beer with a modest amount of carbonation. A very solid and enjoyable brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Tap and Mallet. Pours black and smells of chocolate, licorice, and coffee. The flavor is of sweet roasted malt with the characteristics of the aroma blending together well in the taste. It’s very thick and full bodied with some underlying alcohol noticeable but it did not detract from the very fine flavor.. Extremely good brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle). Pours big, creamy, beige head, diminishing to thin. Opaque, very dark. Light carbonation. Aroma - choc, sweet, toffeeish malt, over-ripe fruit, alcohol, bit of soy, some roast.
Sweet throughout, choc, oak, winey/port sweetness, licorice, bit of iron and a slightly tangy, roasty finish with some slight, decent bitterness. Ends bit dry and bitter on aftertaste, with some soy. Intense flavours throughout and lingering on the tongue long after. Complex and quite tasty. Mid body, with lots of oily flavours sticking to the tongue and a bit perfumey / volatile aromas in the mouth. A bit astringent and dry on the aftertaste.
Distinctive Belgian/Dutch taste, guessing it’s the yeast.
Quite nice and distinctive, though this isn’t my ideal impy stout; a bit too soy/salty, sweet and not quite roasty enough for me.
