3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an opaque black with a creamy light brown head leaving laces. A little wood in the nose, but not distincly Bourbon barrels combined with sweet roast. Solid body, heavy roast, heavy licorice, spicy woody, dark fruits. Again the Bourbon doesn’t really shine through. Still a very solid Impy. Rather malt bitter finish. 170611

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, fruit, coconut, vanilla, and a hint of mint. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights along the outer edges of the glass. It has a creamy three finger light brown head with great retention. The flavor starts with a quick dose of choclolate and coconut. The finish has light-moderate oak, some vinous notes, alcohol (but it doesn’t come across as bourbon),burnt flavors, and a touch of mint. While I’m not getting a lot of bourbon flavors, there is some noticeable alcohol heat. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a solid Imperial Stout that tastes barrel aged, but not necessarily bourbon barrel aged.

Bomber. Beautiful jet with a sticky creamy head the color of cocoa. Nose is sweet vanilla, caramel, and char, topped with a bit too much alcohol aroma. Flavor is chocolate, caramel and toasted nut with bourbon. The bourbon is a bit much at first, but it grows a little more mellow after a while. Finish of espresso and charred wood helps. Heavy body is sticky, with gum-tingling and gut-warming alcohol. The whiskey is a bit too noticeable for my tastes, but there is still a great Impy Stout base underneath.
