ben4321 (4015) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Location: Bottle at Paulís Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13

Aroma: This one has a really interesting nose of bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate
Appearance: The pours is a dark brown-black color with a fairly small head
Flavor: This one is rather sweet, and tasty, thought the flavor doesnít quite live up to the nose
Palate: The body is on the full side, it feels a touch sticky, with a warming finish
Overall Impression: Had this one blind. Overall, this was a fairly impressive one. The notes I enjoyed in the nose were not quite as good in the flavor, but it was still really enjoyable.
