3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Dark mahogany color. This one as well has a light aroma, with roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, very light tobacco leaves and vanilla. Good body strength, round body, with a quite sweet caramel flavor, with notes of chocolate and roasted malt; the alcohol warms the mouth more than expected. The final is well balanced with all the flavor mix, and rhubarb candies, but gets thinner than the front. Very good.

Bottle at the Rover, Göteborg. Pitch black with an incredible head, that is creamy and huge and simply will not die. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, a hint of alcohol and a vinous sweetness. The flavour is sweetish with notes of roasted malt, fruit, raisin, hints of licorice, a bit of candy sugar, caramel, and in the finish some chocolate. It’s a nice and interesting Impy. 2380
