3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle thanks to Adam Jackson. 2012 vintage. Pitch black color with no head at this point. Aroma is light oak, chocolate, mild bourbon.
Flavor is good however it does show a touch of oxidation in the finish. Still pretty good, dark fruit, vanilla, oak, molasses and of course bourbon. Should have been consumed about 7 - 8 months ago. The body is still thicker and full and that’s what I want in an Impy stout. Still damn tasty!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 22oz. 2012 vintage. An almost clear one, at least it looks so. Hard to tell actually, it’s really dark brown in color. A small, dark beige head sits on top. The aroma is roasted and lightly coffeeish, with a sugary spiced touch, some booze, dark chocolate and toffee. It’s full-bodied and warming on the palate, perhaps a bit sweet, and with a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, caramel sugary malts, some bourbon and wood, a spiced hint and some licorice. Lasting finish. Nice indeed, a sipper well worth a try. 140616
