Bottled. Pours pitch black with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa. dark chocolate, bourbon, soy, vanilla and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with bitter notes and alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 Flaska från SB. Svart med brunt skum. Söt, tung doft av choklad och smörkola. Mycket bourbon i smaken, med vanilj och kola.

Garlic_of_Doom (615) - SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2015
2012 Vintage. Almost black, a bit redbrownish with a small beige head that covers the surface. Aroma is mostly sweet, brown sugar and bourbon dominate. Taste is sweet at first, then roasted with dark chocolate/hot cocoa, peppery, bourbon notes that doesn’t over power everything else, some alcohol heat. Surprisingly bitter. Full body, low but very present carbonation, smooth and round mouth feel. Long bitter roasted after taste with alcohol heat.

2014 version, thx H! Shared by all on the Wedding Weekend during the wedding night tasting. Very dark brown pour. Big whiskey and caramel nose. Some roast added in the taste, but the whiskey is much more assertive and flavorful than the Four Roses version, which truly is the key. 15.8
