4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
WOW, I have not been this impressed with an Impy for quite some time. Dark chocolate, toasted oak, coffee and caramel nose. Clean and decadently rich on the palate with an almost delicate mouthfeel. Very complex and rounded with flavors that compliment each other from beginning to ever so wonderful lingering end. Todd may be Flossmoor’s loss but he is definitely our gain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle shared by Spencer. Vintage 2012. The pour is a dark brown, light black color with a thin light khaki colored head and some spots of lace. The aroma is a little boozy that comes through with a nice chocolate and some roast. It's pretty bland. The flavor has a little oak but pretty dominated by malts and roast. It's disappointing. The mouth feel is thin and light with a lingeringly roasty aftertaste. It's good, but disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Vintage 2012. Aroma is bourbon barrel, oatmeal with sugar, roasted malt, sweet malt, milk chocolate, very good. Appearance is black, light brown, great pour. Taste is booze, some roasted malt, chocolate, slight vanilla, pretty bland. Mouthfeel is thick, viscous, flavor is hanging and the carbonation is slightly off. Overall, I thought it would be better but it’s pretty bland.

Bottle, 2012 blue wax, thanks chebyshev. Opaque dark brown almost black pour, receding tan foam. Aroma is really bourbon forward, nice rich woody vanilla notes, light milk chocolate, generally well balanced aroma. Taste is sweet, lots of oak, bourbon, vanilla, sweet booze but not cloying, light roastiness, quite tasty. Palate is med-full bodied with med carbonation. Nice bourbon imperial stout, really enjoyed sipping this.
