3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
28th October 2012
Opaque black beer, big pale tan head. Palate is smooth and soft and a little dry. Rich dark malts, touch of roast. Unsweet dark chocolate. Slightly bitter dark malt note. The mint is well judged and provides a counterpoint for the robust malt. Finishes dry with more dark malt roast, bitterness and coffee. Different.

Bottle at "Darkness comes to town", 131116. Black beer with a nice beige head. Mint aroma, roasted, caramel, chocolate, toffee, cookies. Mint flavor, chocolate, cocoa. Too much mint. It kinda kills the rest of the beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle share at Willis’s flat post Pig’s Ear - cheers to the big man himself, 05/12/12.
I’ve written down (at the end of a boozy doo) Opaque mid black! Black - opaque, really ! Accompanied by a thin dirty coffee head up above thats swims to the edge and leaves a pond.
Nose is dark malts, bitter dark chocolate, mint choc chip ice cream.
Taste follows, bit of a one trick pony in this respect, light wood in the taste, molasses, booze, mint choc chip.
Full bodied with soft carbonation, boozey warming finish.
Ok but a bit of a curious number throwing mint and shit in ! Certainly one of my lower rated Impy Stouts and one I’d probably not bother revisiting (Doh - I have a bottle in my stash ... trade trade trade)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black in color with a finger of khaki head. Pretty nice mint aroma. Decent chocolate, sort of a Hershey syrup sort of character, some sugar, licorice, and plenty of roasted malt. Lots of mint flavor, heavy on the roasted malt, some cocoa powder, and molasses. Dark chocolate, slight sugary sweetness, and a lasting herbal mint note on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a solid black with a fairly thick, medium light brown / tan head. Nose brings out both cocoa and mint chocolate equally, with some underlying roasted and espresso notes. Flavour brings out surprisingly high quality mint chocolate - really not much else to say about the flavour notes. There is not much sweetness, no roasted qualities, no hops detectable, just straight up fine mint chocolate. For what it is, I couldn’t really have imagined it done better - given that I’m not generally a fan of mint chocolate. Solid stuff for sure.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours black with a dark tan head. Aroma is definitely mint. Full bodied. Flavor is very chocolate and very minty. Like the girl scout cookie. Very nice. Quite interesting.
