Aromaís of wood, oak, maple and aged malts. Black in appearance with a very thin foam rim. Aged flavors of charcoal, cocoa, wood and oak. Extremely dry with chocolate on the finish. Overall, this is a decent imperial stout. Very dry with strongly oak aged flavors. Iíd give this a B+ rating.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Location: Bottle at Paulís Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13

Aroma: The nose has coffee, chocolate, other dark malts, bread, roast, and peat
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a small tan head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, it leans sweet, and tastes a little older and dustier
Palate: The body is is rather creamy and smooth, and it is extremely easy to drink
Overall Impression: This one tasted old, but it didnít taste bad. I liked it quite a bit, but I felt like the flavor did suffer a bit from itís age.

reebtogi (4368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
650ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by chocolate with some coffee and hints of pine and citrus. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness followed up with a bit of coffee and citrus hop bitterness and a trace of pine needles. Medium to heavy body with modest carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A very well done brew for the style and one of my favorites, canít wait to try this one again.

12oz bottle from Wadeís Wines. This might have some age on it but its still tasty. The hops have mostly faded but left sweet coffe to dominate the flavor. No hint of the alcohol too. Nice.

Opaque black stout. Smooth semi dry palate. Rich dark malt. Traces of smoke and cherry. Has a bitterish finish which jars a bit with the smoothness of the start.
