3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured black and oily with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt quickly moves on to smoke and alcohol. Starts off sweet then moves to a more roasty malt and finishes with quite a bit of smoke and semi-dry finish. Medium body and very warming. Big flavors and aroma but nice to drink.

Dark brown beer with fine mocha head. Nose is sweet creamy carmel. Lightly roasted. Flavor is a creamy sweet yet mildly smoky barrage of competiting tastes. Mouthfeel is full and creamy. Finish is a sweet smoky almost teriyaki sort of tang. Sweetness comes to fhe front on the second sip. Nice Strong stout

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black pour with a tan head.
The aroma is heavy chocolate and coffee.
The flavor is roasty bitterness, balanced nicely with just enough sweetness from the chocolate and coffee. Not bad.

Very deep deep black color with a very muddy head. Definite black forest cake vibe to it as there are lots of deep chocolates and hints of cherry. Also some solid coffee involved but overshadowed by the chocolate.

Bottle. Jet black pour with tan head. Big huge chocolate and coffee aroma. I got lots of chocolate and coffee and maybe some toffee and dark fruit too. Some nice subdued roasted notes. Carbonation seemed a little high.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep black hue with a frothy, brown head. Gobs of chocolate in the aroma, as if someone shoved an entire block of real chocolate into the bottle. Light roast and hints of dark fruits as well. Heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter finish. Medium-full body, velvety texture, moderate carbonation. The bottom line is: OMFG, CHOCOLATE! This is near perfection as far as my opinion of sweet Impy stouts goes...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a dark brown head. Aroma is quite roasted, coffee, and chocolate. The roast character is pretty dominant and somewhat sweet. Sweet light chocolate, strong roasted notes, with a coffee finish. The finish is also slightly bitter. Good malt body to this one. After trying many bad samples I finally got a good one.
