4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle purchased at Vickers Liquors in Newport, RI. Pours a lovely dense black with a moderate-large bubbly chocolate brown head that lasted until mid-glass and left ample lace. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate, plums, coffee, and roasted malt. The flavor is equally enjoyable with lots of chocolate, and roasted malt with lesser amount of plum and coffee. Fairly smooth and silky on the palate. Full bodied. Very good representation of the style.

22 oz. bottle from Nikki’s Liquors. Dark black color with really nice tan, full head. Lots of lace.Nose is charred malt, bitter chocolate with a tad of booze. Flavor is of a young imperial stout. It’s a bit green and harsh. Chocolate malt, charred ash, bitter sweet malts with a touch of booze. At 9.7 a bit hot and would mellow really nice with some time. Overall still a nicely made Impy stout.
